Octo-Mom

"Children are a gift from the Lord." Psalm 127:3

It seems everywhere we go people have an opinion about the situation with "Octo-Mom." If they don't have an opinion they likely have many questions: Why? How? and so on.

Yes, even in my home questions and opinions have be raised. After a morning of prayers and heartfelt tears for these "fourteen" gifts from the Lord, He spoke to my heart. I am a Mother and a Grandmother. Some days I believe I am a good Mom and make wise, godly decisions. On other days I feel defeated and unsure.

Today I pondered all the selfish mistakes I have made through the years. God graciously allowed me to find my way through a long and painful season of life ending in healing and restoration. My children have survived without visible scars or trauma only to find their mother questioning and debating someone Else's seemingly bad choice(s).

I am not defending Octo-Mom, I simply express my heartfelt desire to remember, these are GOD's children and He has a perfect plan for each of their lives. At the very least it is our responsibility to pray and love these children.

Please join me as I pray daily for Octo-Mom and each of her children. Only GOD can heal, restore, and redeem!

By HIS mercy and in the grip of HIS grace,

Andrea

Yes, as humans, so easy to judge others. But with God's grace, as we try to see things through His eyes, things are not what they seem to us anymore. Great perspective on this one. Then again, His ways and thoughts are higher than ours. I just want to thank you for passing by my blog and I appreciate the comment. God bless.

You are so right on target with this. I agree that it's far too easy for us to judge others. I try not to do that, especially in the parenting department!
