Price tag of Children
To My babies.
Come to find out, the eleven o clock news says that I should have thought long and hard before welcoming you or any other child into our family. Statistics say that y’all are going to cost us over 200,000 a piece! According to them, this price tag that has been placed on you is a huge burden to couples who are yearning for their perfect family photo shoot with their perfectly dressed little boy and little girl.
My darlings, let momma tell ya, they’ve got it all wrong. A price tag does not belong anywhere near a precious life like yours. You are a gift that keeps on giving. No, I may not go on a cruise every year or drive the newest vehicle on the market. But my heart and lap are full. God has loaned you to us, and He will provide for you better than we could ever dream of. You are loved, valued, and were planned long ago. Our bank account does not reflect if you were worth it or not.
My precious ones, let me also tell ya. This world makes you think you are entitled to many things that you are not. You may not have all the newest shoes or name brand clothing, but you will always have clothes on your back. You may not have every latest gadget or cell phone, but you will have a momma and daddy who want to talk to you face to face. You might not have fancy dinners at all your favorite places, but your momma will make you a feast every night. You might not be able to stay in the finest resorts on vacation, but you will get to stay up late by a campfire all night.
Don’t let this world trick you into placing price tags on places they don’t belong . If you can remember this, your life with be richer and fuller than you could have ever imagined…this is how we feel about you.
