Child abuse and domestic abuse are on the rise, not only in our country, but globally as well. We all need to P.U.S.H. (Pray Until Something Happens.) We need change...
This past week, I have been reading such sad and graphic accounts of children all around the world, being abused, some even killed… Trust me, it has torn my heart apart to no end; made me sick to my stomach while I have grieved for these little ones as if they were my own children. My teens here at home, have seen me shed many tears for these little angels, God’s gifts… And yes, that’s exactly what they are- God’s gifts to mankind since we have been made aware of their existence or short life spans.
If the parents of these children couldn’t see this fact, (which apparently, they didn’t,) I, as an outsider, a perfect stranger to them, can see this clear as day. Maybe God’s gift wasn’t for them, but for all of humanity… For all of us to rethink about our own children, (our own gifts He granted to us,) to hold them closer, and love them more. To be a better example for them in how we act as adults, and guide them in the righteous ways, observing the golden rule, “do unto others as you would have others do unto you.” Sadly, I believe the world has forgotten this...
WE NEED CHANGE! WE NEED TO P.U.S.H.!!
