Weekend Thoughts

I spent all evening one night this week getting caught up in Todd and Angie Smith’s story of losing their baby, Audrey, last April. A friend of mine has had a similar experience, and I have seen the power and grace of God especially evident to these people through hard times.
There is an irony here, something that smacks me in the face each time I think of it. This was a wanted child. Their loss generated sympathy and comfort from many around the world. If baby Audrey’s mother had not wanted her, however, Audrey could and would be promptly dismissed from this life, with many others around the world in hearty agreement to this mom’s choice. This same baby can be treated two extremely different ways, depending upon how she is viewed and valued. Sick! Sometimes the heaviness, the blood of millions crying out from the ground, is more than I can bear. I wonder how God can stand it.
“You are of your father the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies.” ~Jesus in John 8:44

  1. 🙁 This is beyond my comprehension too. Some of the things the world is allowd to do are so “barbaric” I don’t understand it. It gives away a lot about a person to know their value or lack of for life.
