Baby On Board

We all know what this means: drive safely around me because there is a baby in my car.

Isn't it interesting that we value a baby's or child's life above an adult's? It's definitely something that we as a culture would place up on a priority list, helpless babies and innocent children are always the first that we want to protect and save. When a child dies it cuts us to the heart, when people harm children we are angry and want to punish them.

So, with this being the way that we think, believe, and act how come we don't seem to realize that a pregnant woman is carrying a precious life inside of her, and that any attempt to end that life is just as terrible as purposely driving recklessly around a vehicle carrying a baby, with the intent to harm the baby?

I just got thinking about this the other day while driving past a car that displayed that sign. If our culture was to grasp what abortion really was (no, not just a "choice" of what to do with "my body"), I think we would realize that deep down it goes against everything we believe and practice.

A baby's life is worth protecting, because it is helpless and cannot protect itself. We need to treat them with care so that they can grow up to be the next generation, whether they are born yet or not.

   A husband graduated from college, and a new baby sleeping on my chest. Things have surely changed, and a new era of life and marriage has begun.

   It's exciting, and perhaps a little frightening to be standing in the doorway of so many changes, so many new things, and a new year full of the unknown. I've never been one to embrace change, but the changes this new little life has brought to mine, while challenging at times, are all good. Being a mom and the main comforter to my little boy, and a wife and the main supporter to my graduated husband are my new and important roles in life.

   May the plans of my growing family, and the foot prints we leave behind be God honoring. May the changes and challenges, excitements and fears of the future and the unknown teach us more of the providence and faithfulness of God.
