If Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder, Does the Beauty Lesson Based on Location?

If beauty is in the eye of the beholder, does the beauty lesson based on its location? That’s the question that surfaced when I saw two pictures yesterday.

The first was a tiny, sleeping newborn with one arm across his chest & his other arm up towards his face with his little fist nestled beneath his chin. The 2nd was another baby in the EXACT same position in his mama’s belly. The same emotions surfaced as I looked at the two pictures & wondered this: why is one little life considered disposable simply based on location inside the womb?

Did you know that when a sperm and egg intersect, the VERY moment they meet a spark of light occurs? I find it fascinating that the Lord created the beginning of our world by separating light and darkness AND that He makes sparks fly at the moment of conception! Jesus IS light and His life, death, & resurrection is like a beacon of light that begets life!

Proverbs 14:25 tells us that a truthful witness SAVES LIVES but a false witness is a traitor.

That word for traitor means false, deceit or fraud. How can any person confessing to be a Christian give fraudulent witness that abortion is ok?

If we SAY we love Jesus, and Jesus IS the Word, and His Word is the Bedrock Source of all unchanging Truth, where does the Word of God support this?

January 2023 will mark 50 years since Roe v. Wade. As of January 2018, over 62 million babies have been ripped from the womb and I have contributed to that number…oh how I wish that I knew then what I know now. I wish that somebody had pulled me aside and spoken the Truth of the matter…that this little guy inside my belly had a soul the moment sparks flew…that my choice doesn’t negate his…

Oh Father, forgive your people for allowing the sacrifice of millions of children for the idols of comfort & convenience! Forgive us for the times we’ve been a false witness and even for being a NONE witness, refusing to speak on behalf of the unborn! 

Your Word says if we confess our sins & turn from our wicked ways, that You are faithful to forgive. We confess that our nation has forsaken these tiny lives. Oh, hear from heaven, forgive our sins & restore our land as we turn our repentant hearts to You.
