Are Children Blessings or Burdens?

I know two young ladies who gave birth to triplets.  You may already know the burden of carrying around extra weight. Can you imagine the burden of carrying extra weight during pregnancy and then trying to care for three sons or three daughters at one time.  The weight was a burden but the babies are a blessing.

The Bible says, “children are a gift from the Lord, they are a real blessing,” (Psalm 127:3).  A pregnant woman must wait a long time to receive the blessing, but the good news is that one day she will lay down her burden and will then carry her blessing, or blessings when multiple births occur.

Do you view and treat children as gift(s) from the Lord?

    Absolutely they are. Even though at 52 I haven’t even had one. I just pray that all parents will cherish, love and appreciate them dearly. For us that don’t have them and want them so much, it’s a different feeling altogether. And not knowing why……not.
