sovereignity, trust, and holy experience~

Through a friend's blog, I came across this link to a story out of British Columbia, Canada. A story of Canadian immigrants from Romania who just gave birth to their 18th child.

When being interviewed, the father's response to being asked if they will have more was particularly sweet and encouraging...

“We never planned how many children to have,” he said. “We just let God guide our lives, you know, because we strongly believe life comes from God and that’s the reason we did not stop the life. We let life come.”

On another note, just this morning I discovered the most amazing blog, Holy Experience. I've only read the two most recent posts, but I was highly encouraged, comforted, and blown away. I would encourage everyone to visit and at least read the two most recent. You will love it.

Shyla, I love the picture at the top of your blog. It is sooo beautiful! Is that you?

"How can it be a large career to tell other people’s children about arithmetic, and a small career to tell one’s own children about the universe? How can it be broad to be the same thing to everyone, and narrow to be everything to someone? No; a woman’s function is laborious, but because it is gigantic, not because it is minute. I will pity Mrs. Jones for the hugeness of her task; I will never pity her for its smallness." ~GK Chesterton
