Psalm 127

“Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a reward from him. Children born to a young man are like arrows in a warrior’s hands. How joyful is the man whose quiver is full of them! He will not be put to shame when he confronts his accusers at the city gates.”

On Theo’s birthday morn I was searching for something of comfort and came across this verse from the book of Psalms. Speaking to my aching heart and wet eyes, it gave me the gift of gratitude.
