I have to admit I almost felt like I needed to apologize for the choice Rob and I had made early in our marriage for me to be at home with the children we hoped God would give us. But I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that is what God called me to do and if I was starting over I wouldn't change anything, except trust God even more.
Maybe the next time I'm asked that question I will answer with the following:
I am an image bearer of the God of the universe, created by Him, who values me as a woman of God.
"God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female he created them."
I wonder what the reaction would be?
Isn't that true though? I am a daughter, sister, wife, mother, aunt, someday a grandmother, but those titles pass away and change.
I will always be God's.
