Fertility issues?….then be inspired by Forever Jones!

 

I often hear Christians saying,’God is good’ but sometimes i think we never take a moment to just ponder on that ‘goodness’. Sometimes when i do take a step back and just reflect on His goodness i am often filled with gratitude because i could never find the right word to describe just how good and wonderful the Living God truly is.

As you all know by know i love Gospel music and for the past few months my little princesses and i have been listing to and belting out Forever Jones Hallelujah song. The band forever Jones consists of mum and dad Dewitt and Kim Jones plus their 5 miracle children . Looking at this beautiful family you would not know of the trials their mother and father went though to have them.

Mr and Mrs Jones have been married for 34 years however the beginning of their marriage was marred with fertility issues. The couple were unable to conceive due to the effects of pelvic inflammatory disease which came about when Mrs Jones had toxic shock syndrome. Doctors told the couple they would never be able to have children but the couple decided to trust in God instead. The couple stood on the word of God and “Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a reward from Him” (Psalm 127:3) became their prescription. After years of having no baby they went on to have 5 babies plus 2 grand babies.

Their story gives me goose pimples and i hope whoever reads this would feel encouraged.

Kirk Franklin and his wife Tammy celebrate 18 beautiful years of marriage:)

ImageSometime this week i saw on Kirk Franklin’s tweeter a retro picture (see pic) of him and his wife where he made a light joke about her collars. He wrote, ‘back in the day..ooh kill em with those collars baby happy anniversary”. I read a bit closer and i realised they have just celebrated 18 years of marriage. That is so amazing and by today’s standard 18 years of marriage is like a century so congratulations to them. Another thing i find amazing about this couple is that one would think they have just walked down the alter yesterday, it is really nice to see a loved up couple we can all look up to. May God keep them and bless them with a long fruitfulness and happy marriage.

Marriage is work and i have heard a few seasoned professionals saying how its its not for the faint hearted. I have been at it for nearly 5 years and well i cannot compare 5 years to 18 years but it is enough for me to say well done and congratulations to this wonderful couple and they should definitely write a book to help other couples…i would be the first to buy!
