“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!”
Our life used to be pretty normal. We met in 7th grade, started dating in high school, survived the college years and got married in June of ’99, shortly after graduation. We had a daughter, travelled as much as we could, planned on getting a dog, went to football games on Saturday and church on Sunday, and by the time we hit our thirties, we were well on our way to having the typical American life.
Then came Mother’s Day 2008 and though we weren’t aware of it at the time, everything in our lives was about to change. Psalm 127:3-5 started the day off and by the time it had ended, we had decided to try for another baby. One more would have been great; twins would fulfill a dream of ours…but ready or not, here come the Jones QUINTUPLETS!!
