Eternal Souls

This is a picture of my son Ryan and his precious wife, Erin.  They have been married a little over a year and have a four month old baby, Emma Rose.  Oh, how we all love her.  Yes, she was conceived on their honeymoon and we are all so happy about it!

"Absolutely nothing in this world is more powerful than nurturing an eternal soul. This season of a woman's life is only for a certain time.  It is her time of visitation which is only about 20 years of her whole life.  It is the privileged time of a woman's life when she can be visited by God to conceive life." Nancy Campbell 

This generation takes child-bearing for granted.  So many women put it off for many years waiting until they think they are ready.  Some can't even conceive by the time they want children.  Our society gives messages that having children isn't worth it...They are time-consuming, expensive, and difficult. 

God sees it a whole different way.  Children are a blessing and gifts from God.  Pregnancy and birth are very difficult, but nothing brings so much joy and happiness than children that are raised in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.  This world needs good children, children of character and integrity.  It makes the world a better place.

And God blessed them, and God said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth and subdue it.
Genesis 1:28

Sons are a heritage from the LORD, children a reward from him
Psalm 127:3
