Parenthood: One Of Life's Greatest Blessings

"The first commandment that God gave to Adam and Eve pertained to their potential for parenthood as husband and wife."

I love being a parent.
It's the toughest job I've ever had.
But it's also the sweetest
and most fulfilling.

I understand why "multiply and replenish the earth" was God's first commandment to our First Parents. (Where would we be without that admonishment?) It is the step, if we choose to take it, that can bring us the most joy, and bring us the most personal growth.

Parenthood is truly a blessing...not a curse!

When I saw this cheery garland on The Purl Bee,
I just had to make one of my own.

It really brightens our dining area, sans Christmas decor.
