Psalms 127:3, A quiver full of children

Children are a heritage from the LORD, offspring a reward from him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are children born in one’s youth. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them.

//Many of you know I’m a new granddaddy. Mason Lee Harmon was born just eleven days ago. My first grandkid! I haven’t held him yet, still 1500 miles away, but in this wonderful world of facebook, I’ve been able to share in the joy through lots of pictures.

As adorable as the little tyke is (surely, the most beautiful baby ever!), young mommy and daddy look positively radiant. The cycle of life is something, isn’t it? Today’s verse came to mind. As foreign as the ancient writings of the Bible can sometimes feel, some things will thankfully never change.

  1. I, too can see the change in these new parents–just a picture shows it. All of a sudden the things life brings take on a whole new meaning; things that were once tolerated are now examined in a different light, because they will affect their precious child. That expression on the face of your son, looking down at his own son, says all of that. Beautiful!

    :) Cute, aren’t they? I remember those days.
