"Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord
The fruit of the womb is His 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 adore this verse! what does it mean?
children who are precious ,vulnerable, weaker creatures are compared to weapons against darkness. i feel deep in my spirit that this is true. I have never felt braver than when ender came to stand by my side.
i've had plans of decorating his room with arrows in lieu of this verse. definitely for his next room when we move soon! OH! I'll put a red arrow above his door to signify his blessing and Jesus's blessing of being the Passover.
I've also been thinking if i should get a necklace with ender's name on it. it seems to be what alot of mamas are doing these days. well, if i do decide to wear the turkey's name around my neck, i think i'll go for something more like this.... maybe with his name etched in the shaft.... ?
