Recently a friend of mine invited me to be a guest on her web site, Notes at Naptime with Shara. She had been getting after me for a couple of years now to do a pod cast. As much as I love and appreciate Shara, I wasn’t real excited about hearing myself on a recording, much less sharing it with anyone else! Finally, when she asked again, I decided to swallow my pride and go for it. This story is about the incredible way we came to now have 14 children. If you take the time to listen, you might want to get a cup of tea and put your feet up. It takes close to a half hour. I happen to think it’s a great story and worth your time!
Stop and visit Shara, Kirk and their beautiful family at Notes at Naptime.
But women will be preserved through the bearing of children if they continue in faith and love and sanctity with self-restraint.
Timothy 2:15 (NASB)
Through my child bearing years, this verse always caught my attention. I read it again the other day, only this time from a different perspective. I am no longer bearing children, yet I am still to “continue in faith and love and sanctity with self-restraint.”
Faith: a strong conviction, firm belief,complete trust…
Love: strong affection for another, unselfish, loyal, tenderness…
Sanctity: holiness of life and character…
Self-restraint: to keep under control, to moderate…
This is not only a worthy prayer for ourselves, but also for the other women in our lives.
