3 Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward. 4 Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth. 5 Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate. (ESV)
Today my only child was baptized, just 4 days after her 21st birthday, this is a day that a christian longs for if they have children. For me this is such a beautiful gift, one that I don’t deserve. There are no words to describe the joy in my heart for this moment!!!!
I remember when she was just a little tike, there were skeptics who said, “Oh it will be difficult for you to bring your daughter up in Christ because you are single.” Well Christ is bigger than all the skeptics and he can do anything!!! And they were right it would be difficult for me to bring my daughter to Christ, especially since He does it all anyway. I take absolutely no credit for her becoming a believer. I just thank Him for allowing me to participate in this extraordinary endevour. He gave her to me as a gift and for His good pleasure, and He returned her back to Himself for her good and His ultimate glory!!! I’m rejoicing with you my Lani, luv!!! Musings&Rants ~ Shazza
