Mother's Day

Happy Belated Mother's Day lovelies. :) I just loved the sweet message that Linny over at A Place Called Simplicity had to say on Mother's Day.

She says, here Happy Mother's Day to all of you, my sweet bloggy friends, who dream of being mothers, who long to be mothers, are "paper-pregnant" through adoption or pregnant in your belly, have children, step-children, foster children or kids that are "like yours"....you, my friend, are abundantly blessed....for He alone is the giver of all life..... and being a mom or like a mom to anyone is the very highest calling and privilege....

If you notice Psalm 127:3 says, "The Fruit of THE womb is His reward"

It doesn't say WHOSE womb....Just THE womb....

ALL children are HIS reward....

Linny, thank you for your sweet words of truth this Mother's Day. I could not have said it better myself. Children are a gift from heaven above and what a privilege and joy to raise them.

On Mother's Day my loving husband brought me breakfast-in-bed, started off the morning with worship at church, then went to our favorite little white farm house to run around the lawn/park area and take some pics. It is so wonderful to just take in the smells and sights of a beautiful spring day without any agenda or places to be. Good times were had by all, including the toddler trying to escape my arms in the picture below. :)
