Blessings come in sweet packages. They come when we least expect them.
I have the privilege of loving on four gifts God has given not just to this couple, but to all of us who love this family. In October, this special couple brought triplets into this world, two girls and a boy. They were so tiny and they were fighters...beautiful little warriors. Their parents... solid as a rock and experiencing fear, trust, faith all at the same time. Why? Because they knew that God was their strength and song. We have watched these babies grow and thrive...and older brother, he is doing great! Such a good helper and loves his siblings so much! There is so much joy in his face when he hugs and kisses their little faces.
This week, one of the girls, Sister One* is up on all fours...scooting a little backwards and before long (I give her a week) she will be all over that house! When I was looking at a picture my friend shared with me this morning of this angel ready to move, I saw a leader. She is the one where, "Life is Good"... always content, smiling and strong. She knows where she is going! And I would say she is going to be the one who negotiates peace and good will.
All of their personalities have been emerging since birth. Sister Two*, she is a heartbreaker... with those big, beautiful, blue eyes! She is very expressive with her hands and face inflections. Sweet little angel girl that will have a tender heart. Brother*, whom shared the womb, he is just a flirt! I mean, his dimples go so deep - straight into that sweet little heart of his. And my heart melts! I think he could get away with anything because he is so handsome with that big, dimpled smile of his!! Big brother*... I love to hear him say, PaPa is the man and Mama is the woman! He is a confident little guy and he is going to take care of his siblings like nobody's business! He will be their protector and make sure they are all in line! What is so amazing, they all look alike in some way. I have never seen four children where there is no mistaking whose they are.
I am very thankful God has allowed me to love so many precious blessings through our church and other places. I do not have biological grandchildren, but I sure have a lot of "surrogate" grandchildren that I love so much! They all bring joy into my life and warm smiles to my heart:) Yes!! and Amen!!
Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate ~ Psalm 127:3-5
*I am careful about sharing children's names who are not my own, as well as pictures. Therefore, I have only used the birth order of the triplets and a picture of Sister One from the back. But, I will share dad's blog, as it is public and searchable. Feel free to read and see their progress. He does a great job capturing not just their lives, but the heart of Christ.
