A Fruitful Sacrifice

"To many in my generation, my decision to stay home is a fruitless sacrifice, a waste of feminine intelligence and abilities.
To me, though, it is a small sacrifice if by it I can send my children into the next generation bursting with spiritual life ready to change their world for Christ. Fruitless? Only by the world's standards. By God's it is a fruitful sacrifice that will yield a harvest of righteousness."

~Sally Clarkson in the book "Seasons of a Mothers heart"

I love the last one with all your little ducks in a row - i'm such a sucker for the "all together" photos, and i'm not satisfied with just two or three in the picture anymore LOL!

You're right - we only have so long before they spread their wings - i'm excited about that, and kind of bummed, too - i know i will not get to do everything i want with them before they are adults... Just hope that when they are adults, they choose to come around. a lot.
