First of all, thanks for everyone who has voted so far on the gender poll! It's way too much fun. Mitch (who thinks this baby is a boy) has accused me (who thinks the baby *may* actually be a girl) of somehow messing with the numbers or guilting you into voting "girl". I assured him I have not!
Next, I have been strangely quiet this political season. I will not deny that the results of the election were largely a disappointment to me. It was not Republicans who lost yesterday. It was unborn babies. :( This verse has been a great comfort to me today:
28 And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.
Barak Obama may be President-Elect, but Jesus is still KING!!
Finally, if there is any doubt in your mind that there *might* be a reason to EVER abort a child or do induced labor abortion, please watch this video. It may make you cry. They showed it at our church for Sanctity of Life and I bawled. It's incredible. Mitch and I have discussed different scenarios at length, even ectopic pregnancy, and we will never terminate a pregnancy or do an early induction, no matter how bleak the prognosis. We will never really know the pain without walking down that road. I'm grateful for people who make incredible videos like this that MAGNIFY God's perfect goodness. I can't even begin to understand, but I cling to hope.
