Therefore encourage one another and build up one another, just as you also are doing. 1Thessalonians 5:11..
The only thing that shocks people more than us having 9 children..is the fact that we have 5 boys..4 of whom are 5 and under. If they find out that we are adopting two more boys..well, we just prove we are certifiable.
I have noticed somewhere along the way little boys have gotten a bad "rap". Perhaps it started around the time when someone came up with the silly notion that boys and girls are the same. Any parent could have told the "experts" that that is absurd. Boys have a wonderful energy that is unique to them. They tap and hum and rap and run. I have often heard it said they are "Noise with dirt", but I think they are much better than that.
Our boys are a lot of fun. They can be noisy, and they can be dirt magnets, and they can make a competition out of things I never imagined could be a race..
I love watching them, and I know that God is going to use these energetic little ones for His glory. Today, they are trying to encourage one another to do the best trick or run the fastest, but one day they will move onto bigger things........
I pray they will encourage one another and propel one another to share Christ with a lost world. I pray they will encourage one another to let God use them as His hands and feet. I pray they will encourage one another to be godly men. I pray they will hold "each others arms up" as Aaron and Hur did with Moses. I am so thankful they have each other.
And I am so thankful God has blessed me with them.
