I have four children. G is the Oldest at 16. He plays guitar, has long hair and thinks he knows a thing or two. I love him for who he is now, not what he hopes he will become. We haven’t been seeing eye to eye lately, and this reminds me that he is growing up and away from me toward independence and self sufficiency. I hate it, but at the same time I love it.
Ja is age 14 and loves to wrestle, watch UFC, and ride bikes. He is my miracle child; we both almost lost our lives when he was trying to come into this world. He has very broad shoulders and got stuck, when they finally got him out, he was grey and not breathing, I was losing a lot of blood and fading fast. The doctors eventually got him breathing but his first pictures are of a blue and angry baby with very broad shoulders. I was okay as well, just weak from so much blood loss.
Je is 13 and growing up fast. He is the short one in our family and he likes to think of himself as a Ninja. I would describe Je as what a hug feels like; he is a sweetie pie, and the best one to take with me when I do the grocery shopping. I can always count on a hug and or a kiss from this one.
M is my 9 yr old daughter and lucky sister to all these boys above. She is a beautiful and loving girl, and my baby. She is growing up too fast for my taste, but there is nothing I can do but sit back and watch…oh I guide her and all that, but as far as growing goes, it’s out of my hands and into God’s. M loves her mama a lot and rarely likes to leave my side, except for the occasional sleep over at her friend’s house.
All my kids are being raised in a godly manner by my hubby and me. We know that God has a perfect plan for all their lives, and we are blessed to have been loaned these 4 beautiful children of ours. Proverbs 22:6 says…Train [a] a child in the way he should go,
and when he is old he will not turn from it. This is exactly what my hubby and I are doing.
Have a great day and head on over to tossing it out to see some other wonderful blogs. May God’s face shine upon you today and beyond.
