A Prayer For My Children

"Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one's youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate."
Psalm 127:3-5

May God bless these precious children of mine
May their bright, beautiful lights be permitted to shine
May they be kind and compassionate each and every day
May their joy be abundant, and may pain stay away

May they know much of love, and be a stranger to fear
May their blessings be many, and may God hold them dear
May their lives be long, and their worries be blissfully few
And May God bless their chosen paths in all that they do

Dear Laura,

I have always wondered how many children you have, because I have never actually seen it stated anywhere. So, I see 5 here; I take it you have five. Yes?
