He Has Turned My Heart Upright

She fell in love right away, she knew it was going to happen, I knew it was going to happen....... to all of us. Even the one who wasn't sure, the one who was afraid to hold her, he fell in love. We can't imagine life with out her. With out that warm, fuzziness she gives us. And she is spoiled. That's what they say when you can't put a baby down.....
Our first three were a surprise. But our last two, we planned. Well, we gave it to God and He gave us another son and daughter. They are a gift. More than a gift, a true Blessing. I'm so thankful for the size of our family. I have grown so much. While raising them, I swear that sometimes they are raising me. And it's the passer bys that don't understand, that make comments. That wonder why we would want so many.
I truly feel that this is my calling. This is what he has called us for, a quiver full. And as the time ticks away I'm learning every day to enjoy every minute. And I do. They are so beautiful in my eyes. My life is full. I don't want for anything. My heart is over flowing with that special kind of love that's like no other.
My daughter asked me the other day, "Mama what's your favorite thing to do?" I didn't have an answer. I thought long and hard. There are so many things I like to do.
And it has occurred to me that being a Mama to my 5 amazing blessings is what I love doing best. And although my heart didn't start out right, I believe my heart has ended up right. I'm where I should be, I'm where God wants me to be. Children are not a hinderance or a duty. They are truly God's blessings flowing down from heaven. And when you try on a new perspective, see it through His point of view, through His living word, He will turn your heart upright. A quiverfull may not be right for you, but it sure feels right to me, to us.

Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them. Psalm 127:5

115. A Quiver Full of them
116. My heart turned upright
117. A love like no other
