Those who plant in tears will harvest SHOUTS OF JOY. They weep as they plant their seed, but they sing as they return with the HARVEST.

Mommy's Going to Plant Some Ribs

The girls have been going to vacation Bible school the last couple of nights and have really been having a great time. Last night our 5 year old came home with a little flower pot that she had painted. I asked her if she would like to plant something in the pot. She was so excited she said," Mommy can we plant some weeds."

Being the mommy who thinks everything has to be in order I told her lets plant some flowers or maybe some herbs that we can use when we cook. She thought that was a great idea. I told her we could maybe plant Basil, or Rosemary or something that would make our food taste really good. She got so excited she ran downstairs and said, " Creighton mommy said we can plant some ribs like we had at that place the other night." When I heard that all I could do was laugh. The only reasoning I could come up with for this was that the other night we had ribs and she just thought since I said we would cook with them it would be something she could eat. I am still pondering how planting herbs could lead to her thinking we would plant ribs. I guess they kind of sound alike. Thanks Brecky for making us all laugh. You are truly a joy to our family.

It's me again - commenting about something totally irrelevent to the post. :-)

Thank you so much for the comment you put today on my blog. I was thinking of you today and reflecting on how encouraging your comments and prayers have been to me. They have been so uplifting, Susan. I appreciate you and the time you take to do that.

I, too, am teary-eyed. Yesterday was a very long, emotional day for me. I cried more tears than I ever thought possible over this issue. I don't know God's plan for me bearing babies, for our family, and for two c/s when my heart cries out to deliver purely and naturally, but I do know that He is giving me opportunity after opportunity to trust Him more and more in all this. I think this topic of childbearing will always be one that is quite close to my heart and one that I am very senstive about. But hopefully God will continue to heal the hurt I feel in having to have our children delivered via surgery thus far. I'm so thankful I at least have the awesome privelege to carry children through pregnancy, as so many women do not even get that lovely blessing.

Thanks again. And happy anniversary. :-)
