"I want to see little children adorning every home as flowers adorn every meadow and every wayside. I want to see them welcomed to the homes they enter, to see their parents grow less and less selfish and more and more loving because they have come. I want to see God's precious gifts accepted, not frowned upon and refused." ~Elizabeth Prentiss, in Stepping Heavenward
This is an appropriate quote for this day, the 43rd anniversary of the supreme court decision that made it legal for parents to kill their children. Abortion is so awful in every way, and if you have been affected by it, I pray that you will find forgiveness. Thankfully God will freely forgive us if we ask him, and he asks us to do the same for others. Children are not a burden, a problem, or an inconvenience, they are God's gifts to us. Having children has taught us so much and continues to teach us daily. It is not easy to raise a child, but it is so very worth it.
