Life is not easy... Even with Jesus life is not always easy...
As tough as life is with financial burdens, relationship problems, marriage woes, busy times, I am so glad that we were blessed with more babies after we undid what God had given us... You know, there is never the perfect time to have a baby... If we waited for that perfect day, it would never happen... To many people wait for that day...
These precious 2 babies were born after we had a vasectomy reversal. We have had 5 pregnancies after our reversal and 2 babies that were born to us. I would do it all again, even go through the losses as hard as they were to see these 2 precious faces every morning...
We got a lot of flack about having a vasectomy reversal - even from "good christian" people- When we miscarried, they wouldn't acknowledge the loss as they never approved of the reversal. Sad for them truly...
"The Bible calls debt a curse and children a blessing; but in our culture, we apply for a curse and reject blessings. Something is wrong with this picture." ~ Doug Phillips
"Behold, children are a gift of the LORD, The fruit of the womb is a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, so are the children of one's youth. How blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them; They will not be ashamed when they speak with their enemies in the gate. (Psalm 127:3-5)
Thank you Jesus for our 6 blessings - our rewards from You!
I believe the only time the Bible mentions a reward from the Lord Himself given to us on earth is by the fruit of our womb.

For there was a time when we were also like this...
If we could see through the eyes of a child with their child-like faith, I just bet we would be fear less as well...

Shabby Apple is a "vintage" on-line boutique for everything a woman would ever dream of from the coolest "ladies dresses" to "women's dresses" to "little girls dresses" to "maternity dresses". I also happen to adore all of their accessories and most of their adorable swimwear.
One of my favorite spring "women's dresses" they offer right now is this adorable "Ahoy" dress shown above. A fun but cute "ladies dress". As you will see, ShabbyApple is a one of a kind on-line boutique. What I appreciate besides its trendy, upscale and vintage line of dresses is that they are all modest as well.
