Birth Control

I know this is a touchy subject for some people and I'm not going to discuss different methods here or anything like that.

But, I think this is what I'm going to start answering when people ask me if we are done because we have 2 children now.

  • Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, The fruit of the womb is His reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, So are the children of one's youth. Happy is the man who has his quiver full of them; They shall not be ashamed. Psalm 127:3-5.

Now, does that mean I want a dozen kids running around? No, but I will take what the Lord blesses me with!

This makes me smile! Can this be my answer too?!?!?

I like this, too. I have only one baby, but have had miscarriage, and I feel strongly about adopting. I really feel like I am blessed by one child, and that we will be even more blessed with more!

Good answer!

Whew, I thought you were going to get me all fired up again about a! But since I like what you wrote, I don't have to say anything...hehe! :o)

Yea! Us too! Hunter always tells us he wants 8 boys and 8 girls...whew, not sure we're up to that, but we are excite to see what The Lord blesses us with!

Imagine having a boy and a girl, people always just assume that you are done. I think that God will give you just what you need - you guys are great parents so you will likely have that dozen! Ha ha!

Mrs. Haid said...

Today my husband told me he wants five kids. This is the number we thought before we were married.

Now we have one kid.

Wow. I am not sure I am that brave.

Take it one baby at a time. You'll know when you're done!
