I am Saddened
Tonight as I sat here on the web looking at women's blogs I came across a very disturbing website. I will not put it on my blog because it truly broke my heart. This woman does nothing but criticize and put down women who call themselves quiver full. She herself is a quiver full mother with 11 blessings. She states that she loved all of the cozy things about mothering but when it comes to the hard side of mothering she goes as far as saying that her husband was abusive and made her have all of these children. She also believes that most large families are abusive and that they are just having children to be their slaves. It saddens me to think that we all have an excuse for everything. If it is too hard let's blame someone else. Let's get back to what quiver full and letting Christ be in charge of our family is really all about. It should not be seen as a number it should be seen as a child and if the Lord sees fit to bless you with 1 or 20 of these little children you are content either way. I think sometimes women think if I have a bunch of kids I am a better person. I just want to always be open to the Lord and let him do what he feels is best for our family. I do get tired some days and I do have a lot of work but all mothers do no matter how many you have. Let's remember mothering is a self sacrificing job for all of us but it is so full of many rewards. So if the Lord chooses to bless us again I say "Amen" and I will pray for this woman who has been so hurt by someone. I will pray that she will feel God's love and have healing for her broken heart.
