Monday Why Monday ??

I ask this question each week - MONDAY, WHY MONDAY??  Why does it have to Monday already?

But this week is different - this week I do not ask the question, but more like reflect on the fact that I CAN ASK ANY QUESTION I WANT TOO!!

OK OK don't look so puzzled!! Because I know you are right now!

I can ask any question I want, I can walk, breath, laugh and thank God for my life each day that I wake up! And so can you!

Anyone who is reading this and is under the age of 37 can thank their mothers or birthmothers for their Life! Because on January 22nd 1973 the U.S. Supreme Court decided that Abortion in all 50 States is legal (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roe_v._Wade for more details). I was conceived by a young unmarried couple (17 and 18 year old) in July of 1973 only 5.5 months after this action by the courts was taken. WOW - I think of all the things that could have happened and all the choices made by this young couple in a time where it was "OK" to abort a child. I can only imagine the pain of making a decision to carry a baby to full term and then making the choice to allow a family to adopt their child. What pain, what choice, and what kind of pressures did they face? It must have been hard!!

But at the same time I praise them each morning!

I praise them for making a Prolife Choice. For trusting in the Lord to carry a child to full term and then trusting even greater, an unknown couple to raise and love that baby as their own. What a CHOICE.

So today I am taking a small break in my crazy life to thank them and thank the Lord for guiding this young couple to carry this child to term and give this child a chance at an amazing life. I will be praying for them and for all those who have gone through a loss of a child in any form, be it adoption, abortion or death. A loss of a child is just that in ANY form. 

The following is a blog post from a year ago and bears repeating: http://robertsrockfarm.blogspot.com/2009/02/lyric-to-little-wonders-rob-thomas.html
