Every child, every one of them, is a blessing from the Lord. Grateful for my middle kid on his 5th birthday.
Our middle child turns 5. He's a huge blessing, full of life, hilarity, and goodwill. He's got a big heart that matches his big blue eyes. I'm grateful to the Lord for him.
Sometimes kids cause us frustration. Sometimes joy. Sometimes they come planned. Sometimes they're a surprise. Sometimes they come in an order we wouldn't have chosen. Sometimes they come naturally. Sometimes they come with much hard work and prayer. Sometimes they come through legal processes. But no matter how they come, they're all a blessing from the Lord.
The point for us as parents is to raise them in the fear and instruction of the Lord, letting the Lord build the house so we don't labor in vain. Thank God for your kids today.
