Just because I don't use birth control does not make me irresponsible. Someone told me that the other day and I still cannot believe that I was lumped into the 'irresponsible' crowd. So because we have more than one or two kids does that make us irresponsible? We are not in a race with anyone to have the world's largest family. We believe God will give us the right number of children because we are open to His Will.
My husband and I are raising our children to be responsible, productive, God-fearing, and contributing members to our society. We don't rely on government programs (aside from our small Obamacare tax credit since our insurance is through the roof - if you're going to go all technical) and we believe in holding ourselves and our children accountable for our and their actions.
So to the person who thinks that it is irresponsible of me (and really us) for not using birth control... When you get old and wonder who is going to be taking care of you and making payments into the Social Security system so you can get your money (if the system is even around then) you can thank our kids because they'll be the ones with the jobs and they'll be the ones with the values instilled in them to keep our country on the right track!
Pfftt - to that person. Until the Lord moves in their hearts they won't see the way we see and understand the way we understand.ReplyDelete
I love your family and am blessed to be loved by your little ones.
They love their NANI so much!Delete
p.s. I LOVE LOVE the family photo!ReplyDelete
: ) I need to do an entire post on how morphed society's view of responsibility has become!Delete
Amen to that my friend. People are downright ridiculous as well as rude. I had a man starting recite the nursery rhyme about the Old Lady in the Shoe while we were shopping at Sam's. And that wasn't the worst of it through the years. People need some right perspective on science, history and FAITH. Thanks for speaking truth in word and deedReplyDelete
That is awful! I know another woman who had the same thing happen to her - she has eight kids as well.Delete
3 kids is "irresponsible"? I thought you had to have at least 4 to be a "big family"? It is crazy how people have different priorities. . . theirs are their "things" and yours are your "family" :)ReplyDelete
Yes it is curious where people chose to lay up their treasuresDelete
High five! *smack* 😉ReplyDelete
I can't help but think that eventually we'll just breed everyone else out of existence...ReplyDelete
