We receive this weekly magazine. It's a Christian world-view news type of magazine. The last couple of issues have had several articles in them on the recent Partial-Birth Abortion Court ruling, and Justice Anthony Kennedy's part in it. They were such encouraging articles to read. It is a blessing to know that there are people in power in our Country who realize the value of human life and the innocent babies we have been destroying. It also had a very, very sad story on forced-abortions that just recently took place in China. If you don't already get this magazine, I encourage you to follow my link and check it out!
I was so moved after reading these articles. I was telling Joel that it seems we often take for granted what we have until we realize that not everybody has the same blessings. For instance, the ladies in this article from China who were forced to have abortions had the very lives of their babies taken away from them by blunt force. I have always taken it for granted that Joel and I can have as many children as we want, whenever we want, and nobody is going to take them from us. I was suddenly filled with incredible love for my family, my husband, and especially my little ones peacefully sleeping in their beds. Who knows, maybe I won't always have the freedoms that I now enjoy, but while I have them, I'm going to thank God and try to realize my blessings every day!
