Where does all the love come from?

"If I had had her always I do not see how I could be more fond of her. And do people call it living who never had any children? Here is a sweet fragrant mouth to kiss; here are two more feet to make music with their pattering about my nursery. Here is a soul to train for God, and the body in which it dwells is worthy at all cost, since it is the abode of a kingly tenant. I may see less of friends, but I have gained one dearer than them all." ~Elizabeth Prentiss

As I watched a movie today where the baby was sick, I cried and thanked the Lord for my healthy little girl. What a heartbreaking thing to watch your child suffer. We have some friends whose son was born premature and he is in the hospital. Please keep them in your prayers as they visit him and work withe doctors to help him get stronger and come home.

We're home! :P

Loved the quote. What a beautiful thought!

Your previous post was shocking to us both. I've never experienced anything quite like that. So glad the Lord could use you.
