Holly, the kids, and I had an amazing weekend in San Diego...we went to a Family Camp through a ministry that Holly gets magazines from called "Above Rubies". The focus of the camp was to encourage dads and moms in their calling to raise children in the Lord. It was such a sweet time of being taught, fellowshipping with others parents (25 families in all), eating some good meals, and having tons of fun together!
In the midst of all the many blessings God showered on us, one really special one was He put this couple in the cabin next to us that was about our same age, had been married about the same amount of time, and have four kids that are five and under. Check out the bottom two picture to see all of us together...Holly and I, along with the kids, absolutely loved this family.
We're more convinced than ever that children are a gift from the Lord and are such a blessing from our Heavenly Father.
"Behold, children are a gift of the LORD, the fruit of the womb is a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, so are the children of one's youth. How blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them; they will not be ashamed when they speak with their enemies in the gate." (Psalm 127:3-5)
