There have been some horrible news that brings tears to my eyes and pain to my heart about babies that survive abortions are killed brutally! How can this happen? I am just sick about it, and find myself just filled with such horror at the thought that I can only weep! Not too much removed from the innocent soul of our Lord facing his death and cruelty when he was perfect/without sin/God/man! To consider that a perfect creation/made in the image of God could be brutally and painfully murdered! "the innocent soul's reward." Heaven forever with Jesus, Mary and the Saints, but how I pray that this evil will end! There are so many empty arms that long for a child to love, how can these little ones not find them? Jesus, we turn to you and trust in you!
Jesus, the JOY is filling me to overflowing. It was such a gift to talk to Hallel on the phone this morning and share with her that her newest niece is here safe and sound. There are limited times that we are able to know that she is sharing in our family happiness and joy, and today was a total gift in so many ways! All those prayers have surrounded both Joy and Hallel with her long days of travel to join their Community of the Lamb in KC today, and little JOY from the moment we knew she was in Ruth's womb! Such a work of art she is and so much excitement and great JOY to finally meet her and hold her. Jesus, we trust in you. Please end the taking of innocent souls and cherishing of all life from conception to natural death. Jesus, we trust in you. Amen
