My cup runneth over!

Here is a sweet fragrant mouth to kiss; here are two more feet to make music with their pattering about my nursery.  Here is a soul to train for God, and the body in which it dwells is worth all it will cost, since it is the abode of a kingly tenant.  I may see less of friends, but I have gained one dearer than them all, to whom, while I minister in Christ’s name, I make a willing sacrifice of what little leisure for my own recreation, my other darlings had left me.  Yes, my precious baby, you are welcome to your mother’s heart, welcome to her time, her strength, her health, her life-long prayers!

Elizabeth Stuart Phelps

Do you ever feel overwhelmed with unworthiness?  I do.  I do not deserve even one child, yet the Lord has given us another!

I once heard that motherhood is a journey out of self-centeredness and I’m inclined to agree.  It seems that I have been full of it and God is still refining me!

How wonderful the Lord is!  And how I look forward to seeing just how he will mold me this time!

  11. Oh Kim, I know exactly how you feel! I so often wonder “why me Lord?…Somebody else could do so much better than I.” And He so lovingly reminds me that it isn’t me at all…it is Him! He is the One who gives me all I need to bring up the children He has chosen to entrust to us…He is the One who works in their hearts as He wants them to turn to Him even more than we do.
    Congratulations! I’m so excited for you and will be praying for you in the days ahead.
    love,
    Jaynee
