Mother and Child

"Children are a gift from the Lord" Psalm 127:3

and so are mothers who brought them into the world.
Right from birth, the baby and mother cohere. This is a natural thing (no offense to papas) for children to be attracted to the mother at that early stage in their lives.

I was told that it is always good to keep the new baby close to the mother’s chest after delivery for the baby to feel her heartbeat. Anyone has an idea why this is so?

Knowing that the child is God's precious gift to us, how do we treat such precious and priceless gift? Do we love them with all our hearts or neglect them? It's pitiful seeing young girls and boys of school-going age hawking on the streets. Being me, I pause and ask myself: "where are their mothers and why are they not in the classroom at that time of the day"? These children are most often than not, left to their own devices. What can we do about this people? ........ The answer lies within. Share your thoughts on this pressing issue.

Proverbs 29:15 says; "the rod and reproof give wisdom, but a child left to himself bringeth his mother to shame" (KJV)

  3. If I had any doubts that there is a God before, giving birth to my son definitely shattered all of them. I look at him and get nauseous at the thought of someone throwing their baby in the garbage or abusing their baby. Children are a blessing it's the poor upbringing that destroys their innocence.

  4. This is a very insightful post; I especially love the proverb you placed at the end. It's so true.

    And I wanted to thank you for being my first blog follower :-) I know follow this blog, and look forward to reading more posts.
