My Vision at the Abortion Center

Oh goody. Raining again and cold for my day standing on the sidewalk at the busy abortion mill. I am so glad I bought my new rain boots a month ago. They have been used regularly since then! It is a sad place even on sunny days. Rain brings a whole new level of despair. It doesn't seem to slow the people coming in to kill their babies, however. The parking lot has been full on Mondays, rain or shine.

There is always one small delight with the rain. Since I now have such well-made awesome rain boots, I walk in the puddles and stomp. I always loved doing that as a kid. I also loved stomping in slush when the snow began to melt. It was very satisfying to see the solid clump explode in a thousand directions under my feet.

That is my image of what I hope will happen today at the abortion center. I pray that our words of life, and hope, and God will explode in the hearts of the women contemplating snuffing the life of their own child. I pray God's message sprays across every molecule of their being in a thousand different pieces, and permeates their soul. I pray in response, they will lift their face to the heavens, with the joy of a child who discovers even puddles made my God can be danced in.

2 Corinthians 4:8-9 

We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed;

And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you.

I know how to be brought low, and I know how to abound. In any and every circumstance, I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need. I can do all things through him who strengthens me.

If you faint in the day of adversity, your strength is small.

  1. Stomping in puddles was a favorite past time of mine & so i have been letting my 4 yr old enjoy stomping in them with her rainboots on, even if it is a little messy. i pray all mamas let their precious little ones enjoy the things they did as children. In Jesus' name.
