The Roses in my Garden

Psalm 127:3-5 Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward.

Children are the flowers in our garden. They need much nurturing in order to blossom. Watering, feeding, sunshine, and love. Not to mention a little pruning when necessary.

I was blessed with six children. WillowTree has six children figurines. I was happy to see that their six matched the personalities of my six.

🌹My inquisitive child ^^^ is my oldest. He watches documentary after documentary in order to feed his hungry mind. You name a topic and he’s watched a documentary. It’s kind of a running joke when we get together. Suppose you’ve watched a documentary on that! In school he read chemistry books for fun and even memorized the periodic table. He is curious about many things and needs the answers to all the questions of life.

🌹My caring child ^^^ is my second son. He makes sure that the needs of others are met. His humble heart is one of compassion for all people…and, of course, the animal kingdom as well. He’s traveled the world sharing his kindness with all those he meets and returns with the warmest stories of other people in faraway lands.

🌹 My spirited child ^^^ is my oldest daughter. She will keep you on your toes but laughing all way. She sets out do something and she does it. She is so much fun to be with but even more fun when you show her the video the next morning. She has a sweet little rosebud of her own.

🌹My imaginative child ^^^ is my youngest son. He was an ATST or a t-Rex most of his growing up years. He’s a master at voice acting and story telling. He’s very artistic and pretty hilarious. With him, there is never a dull moment. He added two precious little rosebuds to our garden.

🌹 My joyful child ^^^ is my fifth child. She has always been my giggler. She brightens up any room she enters. Not only is she beautiful but she’s witty and fun to be around. She has the best sense of humor and her laughter is contagious.

🌹 My thoughtful child ^^^ is my youngest. She thinks of ways to please me and others. She tries to make most days special…and she does. Holidays or birthdays are much more fun because of her ideas. Even the dogs have special birthdays. She often places flower petals on my pillowcase to surprise me when I get home.

Children are blessings and they need to be cherished. Too many times they are thrown to the wayside as selfish parents do selfish things.

Matthew 19:14 But Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.”

Children are not a waste of our time. They are our future and our future depends on them. Raise them with strong, godly morals and values. God has entrusted you with their lives. ♥️
