Learning From Others

I am enjoying posting these links. I suppose it's because I've found them so helpful. Sometimes they are encouraging, other times they are simply affirming and make me feel a bit more sane, and understood. Today, one of them is just funny.
The first is on a more serious note. It's advice regarding issues we've sadly had to face from folks who should know better. Even from those who love our children. It's advice on dealing with extended family who aren't so thrilled about a great big family. The other is a more lighthearted link...and is very funny. And I really enjoyed reading it, and felt like I understood...espicially numbers 16 and 17. You can read it herehere

edited to add that I'm not sure why the "here" likes are connected and I can't seem to unconnect them, nor why the signiture appears before the links. I'm not very technically inclined, so bear with me and follow along the best you can!!

The worst I had to deal with (and I only have 6!) were the nurses and even doctors. It was pretty upsetting at times! I really appreciated one doctor, though (and he ended up moving away)...he talked to me about birth control and I told him that we leave the number of children we were going to have in the Lord's Hands. He opened his mouth to speak...closed it...thought a minute, and then said "you're right." Never had that happen again!
What a blessing to know that the Lord is always with us! Praying in Seattle!
Psalms 23:4-6 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.

Continuing to pray!
Philippians 3:9-11 And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith: That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death; If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead.
