“When a child is born, God places in our arms something that He Himself loves very much; it is precious in His sight; He has a plan for it; it can do for Him the work that no one else can do.Lady Alastair Graham, née Lady Meriel Olivia Bathurst
What a responsibility for us!
God trusts us with His children,
we have a ministry to them.
It is from a mother that a child first learns that God is its Heavenly Father. That it may speak to Him.”
