Servant of Almighty GOD.  Husband to Elizabeth.  Father to Katie and Christopher. Student of the Word of GOD. Author of BITS OF BLESSING AND PIECES OF PRAISE . Sunday School teacher for the Inspiration Class.

A careful look at the word of GOD and you notice that HE brings specific people into this world to do very specific things. While studying to teach a Sunday School lesson on the value of human life, I was suddenly struck with the sad realization that we may have already taken the life of the baby that GOD had gifted with the ability to find a cure for cancer or AIDS or some other disease that is needlessly taking the lives of our citizens. And now we are reaping the death that we have sown. “As you sow even so shall you reap.” We can never know the impact of one life except in retrospect. Think of the lasting impact of an Abraham Lincoln, a Martin Luther King, Jr, a Harriet Tubman, a Booker T. Washington, an Albert Einstein or a George Washington. It’s hard to imagine the loss and the suffering that may have been caused if just one of these people had never been. Of the millions who have died in abortion, how many would have done so great a service to mankind as one of these men or women. The loss of just one and their potential contributions to society is not something we normally ponder when we consider the impact of abortion on our society. God’s word clearly affirms the value of every human being, even the baby in the womb. We as a society of free born Americans need to affirm the value of the baby not yet born. And we need to remember the words of our LORD in Matthew 25:40 that what we do “unto one of the least of these”, we do also unto HIM. That includes the least desirable, the least wanted, the least loved, and the least loveable. That includes those who are still in the womb. If we love HIM it will be evidenced in how we love them. And we must remember that our actions reflect our attitudes. If we say we love them and really mean it, then we will work to protect the unborn. We will affirm their value. I wrote this poem [What Could Have Been?] while preparing the lesson.

TRUST IN HIM!

These troubling times
That test our will
Just know that GOD
Is with us still

HE has not left
HE will not leave
HE’s always there
For those who believe

HIS abiding presence
It gives us HOPE
As this virus spreads
It helps us cope

In the darkest days
HE’s still the LIGHT
For the children of GOD
No need for fright

Courage to face
What comes our way
From HIM the strength
To make it each day

HIS love for us
Will see us through
And trust in HIM
Is what we must do!

What Could Have Been?

Tiny little fingers
and tiny little toes
What she could have been
only heaven knows

Growing in the safety
of her hiding place
A beautiful little head
and a precious little face

Yawning and stretching
and kicking around
Moving and responding
to her mother’s sound

A future chemist
or an astronaut in space
Someone to cure cancer
for the human race

A wonderful mind
that could have found
answers to the questions
that have kept us bound

A precious life
so quickly is gone
And now we’re reaping
the death we’ve sown

To take her life
is a horrible sin
And it’s sad to think
What could have been?

If She Could Speak

If she could speak
Would you hear her cry?
Or would you turn your head
And walk on by?

Would you listen
As she pleads her case?
Would you see the terror
On her precious face?

If she could speak
Would you hear her voice?
Would you finally decide
It’s not about choice?

If she could scream
Would you stop your ears?
Would there be any heartache?
Would there be any tears?

Won’t you see
Her suffering and pain?
Or will your love
Continue to wane?

She’s very much human
She’s surely alive
Won’t you let her
Grow and thrive?

Won’t you stand
Her life to defend?
And bring abortion
Finally, to an end!

The Blood Cries Out!

The deafening cries
Of blood from the ground
Reaching to heaven
A heart wrenching sound

Crying for justice
And their defense
Why the carnage?
It doesn’t make sense

Why can’t we stop
This senseless slaughter?
Why would they kill
Their son or daughter?

Where does it end?
When will it stop?
The death we’ve sown
Is a deadly crop

Surely the reaping
Will destroy our land
Ultimately, we’re all
In our GOD’S hand

In the judgment to come
What will the verdict be?
Have you faithfully stood
Or did you flee?

Have you fought for those
Who cannot fight?
Did you value their lives
And defend their right?
