I now tag:
Hannah S.

You cannot ask your siblings or parents any of these questions before you answer them! Think hard! Oh, and post a picture of your family, or one that reminds of your family and explain why.

I'm also going to add something, Hannah sister, if I may: Add a verse you think explains your family in some way!

There you have it! My wonderful family!

Psalm 127:3-5

"Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD,
The fruit of the womb is a reward.
Like arrows in the hand of a warrior,
So are the children of one’s youth.
Happy is the man who has his quiver full of them;
They shall not be ashamed,
But shall speak with their enemies in the gate."

I know some families have many more children than we do, but any family is a heritage from the Lord! No matter the size! Let it be known that I love this verse because it says that children at the most important thing in the world!
