Sunday morning stuff



It was our 3rd time taking Matthew to church...sitting in the family room because I'm not quite ready to take him to Children's Ministry (although the CM at our church rocks). In one of the worship songs the lyrics were "I once was fatherless, a stranger with no hope" and while this obviously speaks of separation from God, it made me think of our little guy. Suddenly the thought of abortion came to my mind. Before I gave my life to Christ, I was pretty much pro-life, yet I also thought there were some pretty good reasons for abortions. As I am learning about the immense value that God places on each individual life He creates I am also learning to view life differently...ALL life. Matthew's birthmother had EVERY reason in the world to choose abortion, and yet she chose life. And because she made such a loving sacrifice, many others will be blessed by this funny, friendly, inquisitive little life named Matthew. God truly brings beauty from ashes.

Amen sister!! And I agree, how wonderful that Matthew's birth mom chose life for her son. She not only gave Matthew the gift of life, but gave you and your husband the gift of a son (and the world the gift of Matthew!)

Blessings,
