So will you have more children?

This is a question I get all the time. In addition to a plethora of opinions and suggestions about when, why and how to have or not have more children.
This morning I read a post on a blog that so eloquently answered this question. Her answer is quite different than what most people hear or would expect. It made me smile and thank the Lord that there are others out there who view this life, this season, our purpose, our responsibility in the same light... Click here to read the post..

Well I have to say you are an INCREDIBLE mother. I have seen how patient you are with your children. They are kind, polite, smart, sensitive, and fun. All of which I believe you (and Stephen) have taught them. I would say that the world would be a better place with more little Zunigas running around!!

This is a great article! Thanks for sharing it. In my journey to embrace children as blesssings (and not an issue of "convenience") I've found myself getting a bit self-righteous about the idea of having a "full quiver". This is just the balance I needed as a reminder that it is NOT ABOUT ME - but about glorifying God in our family, regardless of the number of children we have. We can be selfigh with few children and we can be selfish we many if our eyes our on ourselves and not on the Lord.
