A Quiver Full: Special Family Memories
"Psalm 128:3-4 beautifully relates a wonderful truth and a precious promise that has truly been confirmed to my wife Marian and me: “Your wife shall be like a fruitful vine in the very heart of your house, your children like olive plants all around your table. Behold, thus shall the man be blessed who fears the LORD.” Yes! The LORD has blessed us with eight incredible children. The Psalmist wrote, “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.” 
For several years I have been adding to my memoirs, “A Chronicle of Blessings” devoting a large amount of that writing to my amazing family. Since that document probably will never finalize until I am called home to be with my LORD, I thought it would be a good thing to make the family part into a separate document to possibly, hopefully be published to bless families with children or are planning, hoping for children – a precious treasure indeed.
