Parenting is a privilege; children are a heritage from the Lord


Enjoy time with your kids,parenting is an honor
Parenting-Enjoy the moment

Parenting is a great privilege, first and for all

and a great opportunity.

For not everybody has had the opportunity to have children.

Some are praying and fasting for children

and going through several treatments,

to have the joy of having children

naturally,by adoption or fostering.



Parenting as an honor

Secondly, It is an honor to have children

for children are a heritage from the Lord.

The Lord just blesses us with them,

not because of our goodness,

But because He is that generous.

He is that good.

He also wants us to experience what it is, to parent

and love unconditionally.

Also, impart knowledge and wisdom






Children in the nest

Thirdly, as we parent

children develop and grow, and mature.

They see how their parents are relating.

Plus how their parents behave in crisis

As they grow they  carry lessons we taught them

by word or actions

Each day they are in the nest, is precious

because the parents will be impacting them.


Lessons from the passing of my mother

My mother passed on when I was 12

I watched her sick unto death

and felt powerless.

Also wished I could do something for her to live long

She wished she would live for my sake.

That was not possible:

that’s why I don’t take parenting for granted.

In times of challenges or achievement, I wish my mom was around.

As a result, I have also learned to  empathize  with children with no mothers

It is a great honor and privilege to be alive,

and be able to be there for your children



Blessing our children

God has truly blessed us, parents.

Never allow the enemy to see your children as a burden

for you will end up speaking to your children out of anger

Or complain about raising children

raising children may be tough at(especially if they are misbehaving)  but God knows it all

Don’t compare your children to those next door

Pray for your children

Speak God’s word over  them

Declare they are the head, not the tail

declare goodness and mercy shall follow them

blessed going in and blessed going out

that a lot of people shall be blessed ’cause of them

Speak life, not death.



‘They grow so fast,’ somebody said

Our own babies are now in their twenties

yet my husband and I revisit memories:

the things they used to do,

and say when they were babies

Now they work

go to school

scheduling time together isn’t easy.

They will always be our babies:

we continue to cherish,

love and encourage them.

Speak blessings upon their lives.

Blessing not cursing pleasant-words-like-honey/


In conclusion: Love and enjoy them babies,

for they are special.

Spend time with them

be there for them at their age

Continuing to know:

God has privileged us,

to give us children

  1. Praise God, I am privileged to be called a mama of three boys! Sometimes I don’t think of it that way- but thank you for the sweet reminder!

  2. Mavis, I have 5 myself. All teenaged or older. I always thought if you put in the hard work when they were little, it would get easier as they got older. Not necessarily true. Thanks for the reminder.

    • Thanks Sheila. We will keep on keeping on. Life time commitment, but hey putting in hard work when they are little is a major investment like you said.Proverbs 22:6..train up a child in the way they should go, and when they are old they will not depart from it.We keep on watching and praying.Thanks again

  4. Although I’m not a Mom, I wholeheartedly agree that we, as Christians, have the opportunity to raise them in a Godly fashion, which is such an honor!
