Pregnancy Care Centers are havens for the hopeless and helpless--and yes, it IS a baby, but they are there to help you with your decisions and see you through!
Mommy and Me
As I nestled in her warm, safe womb
I heard my Mommy's voice.
She sounded troubled as she said,
"I have to make a choice."
She paced the floor, and cried out,
"I can't have a baby --- NO!"
"Don't worry, Mommy, it's not time yet --
I have 6 more months to grow."
The more she cried, the worse I felt.
She didn't know I heard.
All alone, she cried, but I couldn't help --
I couldn't speak a word.
I kicked my feet and tried to make her
know it was okay.
Together, we could make it through
and God would show the way.
And then I heard her screaming that
today would be the day!
I couldn't see the tears she shed,
but it wasn't hard to guess --
she was turning pages in a book,
and barely whispered, "yes."
She must have found the number
and was set to make a call --
Just then she saw the Bible
on the bookshelf in the hall!
"Okay, God, try to stop me --
I'll just dial anyway!
I'm sure it's not a baby yet,
and they'll know just what to say."
was the heading at the top.
She traced her finger down the page,
then brought it to a stop.
My Mommy didn't know that
someone prayed for her that hour --
someone who never knew her,
but who trusted in God's power!
In answer to those earnest prayers,
a "wrong number" she would call --
Until she went to that loving place,
she thought she had no friends at all.
Ever since my Mommy found her way,
and learned God's plan for me,
she can hardly wait to see my face!
And Mommy thanks the Lord for me!
"CHILDREN are a BLESSING
from the LORD"

|A passionate sharing that expresses your views clearly (and your faith too); thank you, Connie. Love and blessings to you,

|Interesting perspective. I firmly believe that humans have inherited the earth already and our population is ruining our nest and causing untold problems. Until 1900, death at childbirth and premature death from many causes kept the population in check. However, the 20th century saw a realization of the “go forth and multiply” prophecy.
For those of us that are lucky to be born and live without serious misery, life seems to be a gift that we treasure and want to fulfill in others. But death is just a part of life that we have pushed back the modern medicine and technology. I see no problem with embracing death with the same comfort as I embrace life. We are threatening much of life on planet with our behavior–God-given or not. It is time we stop and consider the consequences of our behavior.

|AMEN AND AMEN! AS A FORGIVEN VESSEL, WHO HAS HAD MORE THAN ONE ABORTION, I CAN TESTIFY THAT GOD'S WAY IS ALWAYS THE RIGHT WAY. HOW BLIND AND LOST ONE IS WHEN THEY MAKE THE 'CHOICE' THAT ENDS A LIFE...A LIFE THAT GOD STARTED. IT IS A REJECTION OF A 'GIFT'...A BLESSING, FROM OUR GOD'S VERY HANDS. THANK YOU FOR SHARING THIS INSPIRATION, CONNIE...NO ONE APPRECIATES IT MORE THAN ONE WHOM GOD'S MERCY AND GRACE HAS LIFTED FROM THE WELL OF SIN AND CAN NOW STAND WITH A SOUL-WINNING TESTIMONY. A TESTIMONY THAT WILL STRENGTHEN AND ENCOURAGE OTHERS WHEN THEY ARE CONSIDERING THIS SINFUL ACT. ONE NEEDS TO KNOW THAT THEY NEED NOT FEAR, NOR BE TROUBLED, FOR GOD ALONE GIVES LIFE...AND HE WILL PROVIDE FOR THAT LIFE. I HAVE WRITTEN A POEM CALLED, 'ABORTION'. WHEN YOU HAVE THE TIME...PLEASE READ. THIS IS A KEEPER. LOVE, BLESSINGS & FAITH...JOYCE * HIS INSPIRATIONS|

|Excellent is wonderful to discribe this. It might be from 2008, but I pray the young ladies of this generation see, hear, and listen to this sound wisdom. Thanks!|

|Excellent Connie. What a great idea to write this the way you did. It should really help some of our troubled mothers who are faced with problems like this...M|

|What a touching write my friend, love the perspective on this. The voice within this write can be heard loud and clear...this should be posted on health department and doctors office walls to help those who are trying to make a decision about their unborn child. Many people do not realize they have someone who will help them with their pregnancy, go inside the delivery room, and shelter them from the storms that life sometimes sends our way, as well as a comfort in the times of trouble and a friend when we are lonesome! Many don't realize what a friend we have in Jesus! Well done my friend, very compassionate and written with inspiration that can only come from above!

|Connie, what a lovely poem. I like the way you used the unborn child's perspective. Fabulous!|

|It is an empty place without a child.
It seems you can get into some sorrow
looking for your place without a child.

|Colorful words and needy words that will go out to Mothers everywhere. May it touch someone in need and help them decide to give a life and not destroy a life. Like the way it was presented and very eye catching and should be read by many on the den. You go far with this one and not far out as many need this kind of help nowadays. When its too late, it hurts forevermore and many find that out. Thank God for you telling this in a poem.|
