NOt enough brain!

I have so much on my mind these days I cannot even think lol! I have our financial situation on my mind which is finally seeming to get a little better with help from my wonderful parents. And from God! I know God has a hand in all of it.
Then there is a strong conviction I feel that we are not done having kids. I feel this is from God and this has really been on my heart. As well as my issue with taking birth control! I really feel so guilty every night when I have to take it cause of some of the research I have done on it.With our financial situation though I really worry about not taking it and trying some kind of natural family planning. I know God does not put any child here that is not meant to be here but I am just so confused, And my parents would FREAK if they even knew this was something i was even thinking of. I have talked with many people on this subject and of course everyone has their own opinion about birth control and things like that. I have read some Bible verses and really got out of them that you should trust God about conceiving kids. It really feels good to just get it out all though and i have now told Billy all of this. He did not do much commenting on it though and I plan to ask him how he feels today. I wanted to give him some time to think about it.
In other news we are gonna finish up school this week but the kids will be doing some homeschool during the summer as well, Things like writing ,reading ,and some math(mostly math games). That is about it for my news. I have to go get the troups in motion so we can get school done,.

I didn't know you read my blog (O; but thanks for the comment! I have enjoyed reading a few of your posts...I don't get to read too many seem to understand busyness though, LOL!

I completely understand this post about children. We are letting God control the size of our family, BUT before I decided anything I talked with my husband about it. We decided that after I had my first child (once my birth control ran out) that we would just let things in God's hands. Since then I have had a baby every 15-26 months! Amazingly, with each baby, I feel that God is giving me more time.

One book that really convicted us was A Full Quiver, but by the time it came out, we were already taking as many children as God would give us. Another good book is Be Fruitful and Multiply.

Anyway, you have a blessed day in the LORD! I love this beautiful weather so we are going to go outside soon! I have cherry tomato plants to plant (finally!).
