PRAYER FOR RESPECT OF LIFE
Heavenly Father, the beauty and dignity of human life was the crowning of your creation. You further ennobled that life when your Son became one with us in his incarnation.
Help us to realize the sacredness of human life and to respect it from the moment of conception until the last moment at death. Give us courage to speak with truth and love and with conviction in defense of life.
Help us to extend the gentle hand of mercy and forgiveness to those who do not reverence your gift of life.
To all, grant pardon for the times we have failed to be grateful for your precious gift of life or to respect it in others.
I had a totally different intention for today's blog....but after reading the news yesterday and today....I really needed to say that I am so thankful for the support and care I recieved when I decided to carry Jamie. I am extremely disgusted with the so-called abortion doctor in Pennsylvania that didn't consider those babies as human beings.
I have never used Jamie Lynn as a platform for the respect life movement, and I probably never will.
She is mine and I don't share very well (ask my husband...he will concur).
However, at this moment, I am feeling so blessed to carry that darling baby and I am thankful that my husband, family, and friends supported my decision. I am also grateful for the love and care she was given by my doctor and nurses when she arrived and then shortly left us.
So thank you to all those who are always there for me.
As for the cross....when I am not so upset....I will definitely share how I made it!
