Jeremiah 1:5
"Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you. Before you were born, I set you apart."

Psalm 139:13
"You created my innermost being. You knit me together in my mothers womb."

Psalm 127:3
"Children are a heritage from the Lord."

Children are a blessing.

Today I am not talking about having a bunch of kids.

I am not talking about the offensive comments you get when you have more than what's "typical."

I am talking about life.

It's a precious gift God has given us.


I watched as our nation was outraged by the Casey Anthony trial.

How dare they find her innocent?

How could a mother act like she did when their child had died, especially if it truly was at her own hand?

Our country was horrified.

As they should be.

Based on the details that I have heard, there was no earthly justice for this child.

But how many people would have been horrified had she decided to terminate her pregnancy?

Would our nation have been outraged?

Would we have wept over a precious life?

In 2008, the year sweet Caley died, 1.2 million babies were also killed.

We absolutely need to mourn the death of this precious life that was snatched away at such a young, vulnerable age.

And as a nation, we need to regard ALL life just as precious.
