"I wish you could know us in real life so that we could change some of the preconceptions you have of large families. For the record, I have never even seen a food stamp (I'm not sure that we have those in Canada). The Lord has provided well for our family, In part by this little blog I have.
I don't think it's appropriate to tell strangers on the internet (or anybody, for that matter) to "close your legs!" The internet gives us too much anonymity sometimes, allowing us to say things that are more hurtful than helpful.
All the large families I've known have been delightful people who work hard and spend carefully. I recognize that your experience may be different, but please don't assume that we are all like the ones you've met. Thanks for commenting."
"Therefore, beloved, looking forward to these things, be diligent to be found by Him in peace, without spot and blameless" ~2 peter 3:14
"Do all things without complaining and disputing, that you may become blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world" ~Philippians 2:14,15

"I was browsing around pinterest the other day and it lead me to this great tutorial."The difference is that in the first example the reader may click over to the pin, get the gist from the picture, and the person who created the image never gets the pageview. Since for many bloggers more pageviews = more money (and, for all bloggers more pageviews = great excitement!) I think it's best to link directly to the content we consider valuable.
