There are so many things I've been thinking of lately. Too much to share here, but as I picked seeds from our beautiful morning glories and I watched my sweet baby toddling around in the grass, all I could think of was Mother Teresa's words "How can there be too many children? That's like saying, there are too many flowers"
Every time I hear this song, I simply cannot help it. I start to cry and often picture Jesus standing looking into Jerusalem shortly before his passion when he said, "Jerusalem, Jerusalem, how I longed to gather you as a mother hen gathers her chicks... but you would not" I always think of that passage with sorrow and how Jesus wanted so desperately to save this nation, and it rejected Him and chose Barrabas when God himself stood before them.
The two lines that really strike me right now are:
"The Father gave His only Son, The Way, The Truth, The Life had come... but there was no room for him in the World he came to Save"
"United States of America, looks like another Silent night... as we're sung to sleep by philosophies of SAVE the TREES, but KILL THE CHILDREN..."
I wish it weren't true here, but it is. Soon, as the fate of Our Nation is decided, let our quiet votes be cast wisely and let us choose Christ ...and his Children when we stand in the quiet of our ballot box, with only God watching as our witness.
