Quiver

Don’t you see that children are God’s best gift? the fruit of the womb his generous legacy?   

Like a warrior’s fistful of arrows are the children of a vigorous youth.   

Oh, how blessed are you parents, with your quivers full of children!

If God doesn’t build the house, the builders only build shacks.
   If God doesn’t guard the city,
      the night watchman might as well nap.
   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?

(Psalm 127 message)
