This is our Family. We're a big one. We're a happy one. We're a Christian one. We're a homeschooling one. We're a Blessed one. We're a loving one. And We always welcome another one.
I posted about my new little sister Rosie on my other blog, but I just realized that I haven't posted anything about her on this one. So I will.
This is Rosie. She is my sweet little sister. I haven't met her yet, and this is the most I will see of her until March. But I already love her with all of my heart. And no matter how many siblings I have, I will always be excited about a new arrival. People often ask me if I'm happy about having another younger sister, or if I'm just used to it. Sure I'm used to it, but I'm so happy. There is nothing as special as walking into the room and seeing your new baby brother or sister for the first time. Your heart is filled with emotion, and you realize what an amazing gift life really is. God's creation is so detailed and perfect, that you can't say it was a mistake, or a coincidence. When you look at pictures like this, and think of how unique this person will be, what gifts she will have, what she will look like, and who she will become, you can't help but be amazed. And it makes me sad to think, that so many people don't value their life. They don't feel they have a purpose, or a meaning. But I believe God gave all of us a purpose, and gifts, right from the start. He gave us dreams, he gave us talents, he gave us feelings. You can't denie that he is a truly amesome God, who gives life. I've watched all of my five younger siblings grow, and I realize how special they are. I can't imagine what my life would be without them. So value your life, and the lives of others. Everything is a gift. Everything has purpose. God's design includes us all. And I hope that we will all come to appreciate everyone for who they are, and what they were meant to do. Because that's what life is for. It's not meant to be destroyed, or desolate. We were all meant to be something. And looking at my little sister's little face and fingers, I have faith that she will follow the plan that the Lord has made for her, and take advantage of her gifts and purpose.
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.Jeremiah 29:11
I hope this spoke to you in some way. Have a great week!
