Swings, Children and Abortion

Well I decided to take a walk yesterday. A lot of things had been on my mind lately. As I was walking I passed a playground. There was no one there. I remember playing on the playground when I was a little. So I decided I would take a few minutes aside from walking and go to the playground.

While I was there I remembered how I would like to pretend with the swings. That I would push them as if there was a little kid in there even then no one was. I would sometimes think that maybe one day I would be pushing my own children in those swings or at least swings like them. I always loved being on the swings. They were my favorite. I could just be on the swing for hours.. As I was swinging that swing again those same thoughts popped in my head again but this time they weren't happy thoughts. These thoughts brought tears to my eyes..

I guess this is why. With someone with my medical problems it's hard for them to have children. You can but you have to have medication to help it along and even then you aren't sure if it will work. Now I'm not complaining. I would love to have kids if that would be in God's plan. I guess what really makes me upset is why would someone consider aborting a baby. Every min approximately 2 children are aborted. This saddens me. Why couldn't they just have the child and if they didn't want that little baby boy or girl just have it be adopted? Those that can't have children could then adopt that little boy or girl into their family. As I pushed those empty swings I couldn't help but think there is one little boy or girl that was aborted and they never had the opportunity to be loved and be pushed in a swing.

I thought I would end this post with verses from the Bible that talked about children.

For You created my inmost being; You knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from You when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, Your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in Your book before one of them came to be (Psalm 139:13-16).

Yet You brought me out of the womb; You made me trust in You even at my mother's breast. From birth I was cast upon You; from my mother's womb You have been my God (Psalm 22:9-10).

Did not He who made me in the womb make them? Did not the same one form us both within our mothers? (Job 31:15).

Know that the LORD is God. It is He who made us, and we are His; we are His people, the sheep of His pasture (Psalm 100:3)

This is what the LORD says--He who made you, who formed you in the womb, and who will help you … (Isaiah 44:2)

God is in control. This I know. He had a reason for children to be here on earth. Let's give them the opportunity to be loved and not have them aborted but rather be adopted into a loving family. Let's also support the ladies who have had an abortion and are having a tough time. Let's lift them up in prayer. Let us bring to them the good news of the gospel. They need it as much as anyone else does.

I agree with you sis! Abortion is such a sad, sad evil! Although I have 4 children of my own, Scott and I have been praying for years about adopting. Perhaps someday, we will. As for you, I believe that the Lord knows your heart and He knows your desires...You will be a Mommy someday! I honestly do believe that sweetheart. I love you!

Thank you for sharing your heart, sweetie. The two swings made what you shared very powerful.
