Welcome to Winsome Arrows!
The name comes from Psalm 127 - in particular verses 3 and 4:
Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord,
the fruit of the womb a reward.
Like arrows in the hand of a warrior
are the children of one's youth.
I like to think our children are like arrows which we meticulously prepare for flight. We carry them through the early years upon our own backs, protecting them in the quiver of home and family. We hold them with a gentle firmness, turning them, inspecting them, fluffing their feathers so their course will be true. And, when the time has come for them to make their mark upon the world, we string them with as much confidence as we can muster, steadily aim them, and with a deep breath release them to be carried onward by the purposeful winds of our good and gracious God. My hope is to provide a place here in which we can encourage one another to do this with loving excellence.
I hope you will join me in this endeavor.
