Day #11...

Today I was reminded of how precious little children truly are---what a blessing!

There is so much these little people have to learn, and yet how willing they are to absorb all that they see and hear!

May we all be so receptive to what our Father has to teach us each day!

May we reach out and except others where they are on this journey called life!

What joy it was to cuddle one of the sleepiest of the 11 children I cared for at Helens' while she went to her appointments this morning!

What fun it was to read to them and do puzzles with them and to just enjoy life together!

Tonight, I am thankful for children.~

MATTHEW 18:1-6

"At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven? And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them, and said, Verily I say unto you, except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me. But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea."

Well said, Cora. While Whintey was here yesterday we talked about that very subject. She mentioned she heard on the radio that the Duggers were expecting their 20th blessing. That got us talking about the world's view vs God's view on children. I pray that you will be a mother of many. Sabbath blessings to you.

Dear Cora,
Amen praise the Lord. :)

Children are such a gift. May the Lord teach us to help raise more children for Him. May He be our All, and that of any children in our lives. Including the ones you cared for yesterday.

Yours Carra

WOW Kimberly--what a blessing you gave my girl here! Thank you!!!

Say, Cora, this was one of the most beautiful posts I have ever read!!!! Well said, and I agree with Kimberly. You know what God says about 2 agreeing on Earth. :)
Keep praying and keep serving the Lord and it WILL happen as God has ordained at just the right time!

Happy Sabbath dear daughter!


PS. Got any ideas for hiding gifts for the boys this year?

Hello Cora :)

I just happened by your blog tonight and thought I would leave a comment on this beautiful post.

Children truly are such a blessing. Jesus has truly given us so much in children. May we learn, in Him, to take our duties as siblings, or mothers, or even baby sitters so seriously! It is one of the greatest callings on earth.

May Jesus bless you my friend. I love your words of encouragment as to how we should show such love to others in this life.

With many prayers;
