Blessings amidst the sorrow


The owner of a small restaurant in Des Moines says one of his employees came in and asked if she could get her paycheck a little early. While he was in the office cutting her check, she watched the news about the Newtown shootings.

Her boss came out to find her sobbing uncontrollably. She told him, “I needed my paycheck early because I have an appointment at Planned Parenthood this afternoon to have an abortion.” And then she said, “After seeing all of those innocent young children dying and all of those mothers who have had their children taken from them, I can’t go through with this abortion!”

The young girl said she didn’t know where to go for help. Her boss got her in touch with his mother, who is very active in Iowa Right to Life. God is good!

    Thanks be to God! In some of the commentary following this massacre, it was said that the school where these children were killed should have been the safest place in the world for them, and it made me think, what about the womb? I hope and pray for a true and deep appreciation for the sanctity of human life in the wake of this tragedy.


  2. Many, many years ago I heard someone point out that infanticide on a large scale occurs around the time a prophet or a deliverer is born (Pharaoh ordering all the Hebrew baby boys killed at the time Moses was born, Herod ordering the slaughter of everyone under 2 years old when Jesus was born) — and this person wondered who it was that was supposed to be born in the U.S. in the late 20th century, that the devil would use the Supreme Court to unleash another slaughter of the innocents in an effort to see that this particular prophet or deliverer never saw the light of day. It’s an interesting idea, and I can’t help wondering, was that baby born? or was it aborted?


    • Interesting point, Bob. One would think that the ongoing, current slaughter in the clinics would bring forth a whole army of prophets. I’ve thought about the “God will raise up a leader” thing many times in the last few years. We seem truly leaderless right now, and I have prayed that God would see fit to bring forward someone soon (who hasn’t been aborted). Like you say, I wonder often who it might be, if they have been born and where they are at this moment. All I know for sure is his name ain’t Barack.
