Children are a heritage from the Lord, offspring a reward from him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are children born in one’s youth. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them. Psalm 127:3-5
This is the scripture that I sent a year or so ago to a friend whose first child, a son, had just been born. Though I am a mother of teenage sons, I have many friends who are having babes for the first time. A girlfriend of mine is getting ready to have her second child; she thinks it will be a boy. She asked me the other day, how do you do it? Raising sons that is….well, I can only say that raising children, particularly in this day and age, is and will be the hardest job you will ever love.
