The Best Gift!

I truly believe that as Foster Parents, God are blessing us even more so, with this “best gift” spoken of in Psalms.  Even tough we might not have given physical birth to them, they make us the “blessed parents” with quivers full of children!  The Bible teaches us clearly on what God’s view of children, orphans and the poor is.  He always makes special mention of them, and instructs us to take care of them, and to treat them as our own. So be assured that He has blessed you with His ‘Best Gift’!

“It’s useless to rise early and go to bed late, and work your worried fingers to the bone.  Don’t you know He enjoys giving rest to those He loves? Don’t you see that children are God’s best gift? … Oh, how blessed are you parents, with your quivers full of children!”  Psalm 127:2-4 (The Message)


About Helouise Steenkamp

I'm a 45 plus, Devoted Wife and Mother. Adonai has blessed us with two Amazingly Wonderful Sons. We have had the privilege of being Place of Safety parents for 1 1/2 years and there after foster parents to a Darling Princess for 5 years. She was reconciled with her biological parents in Dec'14. Our hearts are still aching from the loss, but we know that as we trust Adonai with our salvation, so we can trust Him with her future. We welcomed our new 4 year old foster child on 05JUN'15.
