Have you heard of the Chinese infant recovered from a sewer pipe by firefighters?
If not, please read the excellent article by Gina Diorio.
The sound of a baby’s cry
The recognition that this baby’s life was worth saving
The mother’s desire for him does not determine the value of the life
Memories again come to my mind on this beautiful Spring day.
An orphanage in Russia, more in Ukraine
the workers doing what they could
precious little children
needing a family of their own.
The questions directed at me –
“You’re going to what?”
The sound of a baby’s cry drew me halfway around the world.
It continues to draw me forward
seeking to do all that I can do in my lifetime.
Hagar placing her son under a bush in desperation (Genesis 21:16)
and God heard it’s cry and hers.
Do not fear because God has heard the voice of the lad where he is.
but do we?
Does my heart respond to the cries?
“Why?” I was challenged in a Sunday School class long ago.
My heart quickly answers “How can I not?”
Each life has incredible value.
God showed Hagar a well
yes, a well of water nearby.
In our country where all too often decisions are made based upon selfishness
we must take our stand.
God still hears the cries of the babies
the cries of the unborn
the cries of the oftentimes desperate mother.
He is the God Who makes a way when there seems to be no way.
Let’s hear the cries and wade into the problem doing everything we can.
Will you join me?
