Cute pic. Except for the grass stains on the boys knees! LOL! You gotta let boys be boys. :) Journal:
It seems as if money drives people and motivates their decision making. It's funny, but from what I remember, the bible mentions that children are an inheritence from the Lord. That material things are an inheritence from our fathers. I think there is this notion that you have to "live your life first!", or "reach the certain amount of money you make". I know that I had lived enough of myself to realize how truly selfish I really am. Kids is what brought me to my knees realizing how much I truly needed God in my life. In my day to day living. Without a relationship with God, my energy was spent, my patience was thin, my love challenged. It came a point in my life where I thought to myself, "If God designed women to have children then He will also give us the strength to raise them". Just ask. We are leaking vessels! Daily surrendering of our own fleshly desires. Spending time in God's word and prayer DAILY is what keeps my spirit alive. ESPECIALLY when people are not careful with their words, you need God's strength to forgive and move on. Not only that, but to actually love that person in return and pray for them. No, and I'm not talking about praying that a bolt of lightening would strike them! :P But a prayer that God will touch their hearts and help them.
