Children are Blessings....

Happy Children's day to all the amazing Children in our lives.

I hope we were able to make out time from our super busy schedules to take the kids out yesterday...if not then today is a good day to do that (I am also guilty).


So I got thinking yesterday and thought we should actually appreciate these Children and above all appreciate God for the Blessings he bestowed upon us.


Psalm 127 v 3-5 

Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.
As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth.
Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate.

As daunting as it is bringing them forth, the joy they bring wipes the pain off our memories. Isn't God wonderful?!


Of a truth Children are amazing gifts from God.


They bring so much joy into our lives.






They are so small, so cute,fun to play with, so gratifying to watch as they grow and learn.


They provide infinite epochs of pleasure.



They love and trust us so much.
They teach us self-sacrifice, discipline, long-suffering (not just patience)

They make us learn the right lyrics of nursery rhymes. :D

They make us pray like never before


No doubt raising them involves a great deal of self-sacrifice on our parts as parents but we are happy to do it right?

I pray that God in his infinite mercies will give us the grace to raise them according to his will.

These ones will not fail or fall by the way side.
The length of their days they will fulfill.
Their generation will call them blessed.
They will excel in all they lay their hands on.

The prayers are endless....



Please drop your prayers for our children in the comment box.


Thank you

  4. This is, yet again, a very god and thoughtful write up Odunola. I wonder why you don't write often.
    May God protect all our children and provide for us parents to give them all they need and want and require.
