This is a Special letter from a child...Please read this!

Hi, Mommy.

... ...I'm your baby. You don't know me yet, I'm only a few weeks old. You're going to find out about me soon, though, I promise.
Let me tell you some things about me. My name is John, and I've got beautiful brown eyes and black hair. Well, I don't have it yet, but I will when I'm born. I'm going to be your only child, and you'll call me your one and only. I'm going to grow up without a daddy mostly, but we have each other. We'll help each other, and love each other. I want to be a doctor when I grow up.

You found out about me today, Mommy! You were so excited, you couldn't wait to tell everyone. All you could do all day was smile, and life was perfect. You have a beautiful smile, Mommy. It will be the first face I will see in my life, and it will be the best thing I see in my life. I know it already.

Today was the day you told Daddy. You were so excited to tell him about  me! ...He wasn't happy, Mommy. He kind of got angry. I don't think that you noticed, but he did. He started to talk about something called wedlock, and money, and bills, and stuff I don't think I understand yet. You were still happy, though, so it was okay. Then he did something scary, Mommy. He hit you. I could feel you fall backward, and your hands flying up to protect me. I was okay... but I was very sad for you. You were crying then, Mommy. That's a sound I don't like. It doesn't make me feel good. It made me cry, too. He said sorry after, and he hugged you again. You forgave him, Mommy, but I'm not sure if I do. It wasn't right. You say he loves you... why would he hurt you? I don't like it, Mommy.

Finally, you can see me! Your stomach is a little bit bigger, and you're so proud of me! You went out with your mommy to buy new clothes, and you were so so so happy. You sing to me, too. You have the most beautiful voice in the whole wide world. When you sing is when I'm happiest. And you talk to me, and I feel safe. So safe. You just wait and see, Mommy. When I am born I will be perfect just for you. I will make you proud, and I will love you with all of my heart.

I can move my hands and feet now, Mommy. I do it because you put your hands on your belly to feel me, and I giggle. You giggle, too. I love you, Mommy.

Daddy came to see you today, Mommy. I got really scared. He was acting funny and he wasn't talking right. He said he didn't want you. I don't know why, but that's what he said. And he hit you again. I got angry, Mommy. When I grow up I promise I won't let you get hurt! I promise to protect you. Daddy is bad. I don't care if you think that he is a good person, I think he's bad. But he hit you, and he said he didn't want us. He doesn't like me. Why doesn't he like me, Mommy?

You didn't talk to me tonight, Mommy. Is everything okay?

It's been three days since you saw Daddy. You haven't talked to me or touched me or anything since that. Don't you still love me, Mommy? I still love you. I think you feel sad. The only time I feel you is when you sleep. You sleep funny, kind of curled up on your side. And you hug me with your arms, and I feel safe and warm again. Why don't you do that when you're awake, any more?

I'm 21 weeks old today, Mommy. Aren't you proud of me? We're going somewhere today, and it's somewhere new. I'm excited. It looks like a hospital, too. I want to be a doctor when I grow up, Mommy. Did I tell you that? I hope you're as excited as I am. I can't wait.

...Mommy, I'm getting scared. Your heart is still beating, but I don't know what you are thinking. The doctor is talking to you. I think
something's going to happen soon. I'm really, really, really scared, Mommy. Please tell me you love me. Then I will feel safe again. I love you!

Mommy, what are they doing to me!? It hurts! Please make them stop! It feels bad! Please, Mommy, please please help me! Make them stop!

Don't worry Mommy, I'm safe. I'm in heaven with the angels now. They told me what you did, and they said it's called an abortion.

Why, Mommy? Why did you do it? Don't you love me any more? Why did you get rid of me? I'm really, really, really sorry if I did something wrong, Mommy. I love you, Mommy! I love you with all of my heart. Why don't you love me? What did I do to deserve what they did to me? I want to live, Mommy! Please! It really, really hurts to see you not care about me, and not talk to me. Didn't I love you enough? Please say you'll keep me, Mommy! I want to live smile and watch the clouds and see your face and grow up and be a doctor. I don't want to be here, I want you to love me again! I'm really really really sorry if I did something wrong. I love you!

I love you, Mommy.

Every abortion is just…

One more heart that was stopped.

Two more eyes that will never see.

Two more hands that will never touch.

Two more legs that will never run.

One more mouth that will never speak.

Jesus Understands What You Are Going Through

Hebrews  4 -15
For  we  do not have a High Priest who,
cannot  sympathize  with our  weaknesses,
but  was  in all  points  tempted  as we are,
yet  without sin.

Do  you  sometimes wonder if God really knows,
what  it is  like  to be  poor , rejected by people,
or sick  with  aches  and pains.
Perhaps  you  are asking,
Does God  really  understand  what I am
going  through?

My   friend , Jesus  was  no stranger  to,
emotional  or physical  pains , poverty  or  hardship.
He  was  born into a poor family.
He  had  a  smelly  manger  for His birthplace.
(Luke 2  -7)
From  an early  age  as a carpenter ,
He knew  all  about  working  hard with His,
hands, standing  on His  feet  all  day long,
and  returning  home  with  aches  in His body.

The  religious  leaders of  His  day made life,
difficult  for Him, they  challenged His,
authority(Matthew 21 -23) and  tested His,
teachings (Matthew 19 -3)They  also called,
Him  a glutton , winebibber , friend  of
tax  collectors  and sinners(Matthew 11-19)
and  blasohemer. (Mark 2 -7)

They  said  that  He  was  demon -possessed
and  mad(John 10 -20) put  Him on the spot,
when  they  brought  an adulterous  woman to Him (John 8 - 2 -11)
attempted  to stone  Him.
(John 8 - 59 , 10 - 31- 39)  and  accused
Him  of  perverting  the nation .(Luke 23 -2)

Have  you  been  chased  out of  your home,
because  of   your Christian  beliefs ?
Jesus  understands what  you are going through.
He  was  chased  out of His own Hometown
(Luke 4 - 29) Have  you been rejected,
by  someone  you love?  Jesus  also experienced,
the  pain of  being  denied  by  a loved one,
(Luke 22 - 54 - 62)  and  betrayed  by one,
considered  close  to Him,(Luke -22- 47-48)
He also knows all  about  the sickness you,
are  suffering  because  He  bore  your sicknesses,
and pain  on  the cross.(Isaiah 53 -4 )

Jesus  certainly  understands  all  that we going,
through  because  being  born fully Man
He  was in  all  points  tempted  as we are.
He  endured  His  sufferings for our sakes,
so  that  we can  have  His  peace and the,
anointing  to rise  above  the  trouble we are facing!

20 Powerful Bible Verses on Forgiving Others

“Not forgiving is like drinking cat poison and then waiting for the rat to die.” – Anne Lamott
