Life- It Is Priceless!!!
First let me start with saying that I am not really sure why I am writing this post. Last night I watched the debate not to decided who I would vote for but to listen and hopefully be reassured that my candidate was the right choice. And I think I was but there was one topic that really pulled at my heart. It was the topic of abortion. I am pro-life and have always been but last night I was moved to tears and am right now as I type this. Something tugged at my heart as they talked about their different views and as I sat holding my son I was overwhelmed with emotions. I normally don't like to talk about issues that are this controversial but I think the Lord showed me something last night. I couldn't help but cry as I looked at my helpless Levi lay in my arms. He is not helpless because there is something wrong with him he is helpless because he needs love and touch to survive. I also sat there and thought about babies that don't ever get that chance to have the love and touch of their parents. They didn't ask to be killed. I think last night for the first time ever I was grieving for all of those babies that did not get to live out God's plan for them. I was also rejoicing that my husband and I decided to let God control our family size. If we would not have let God be in control we would not have a beautiful son. I guess I just needed to vent and share how I was feeling. I truly have a different feeling about abortion and really understand how many precious lives never even got a chance all because Big Brother thinks they know best.
