Gift Of Life More Powerful Than Pain

May 8, 2011 2:54 pm 0 comments

With childbirth one thinks of pain. There are some of us that gave birth without pain but that rarely happens. There can be screaming and crying during childbirth but many women continue having children. The joy of a new life surpasses all pain. For most the physical pain is long forgotten once the baby is born. For others the pain they feel is deeper than physical and can last a lifetime.

While mothers are celebrated this Mother’s Day there will be some that will have haunting thoughts of the day they became pregnant. There are far more than society knows.

With childbirth one thinks of pain. There are some of us that gave birth without pain but that rarely happens. There can be screaming and crying during childbirth but many women continue having children. The joy of a new life surpasses all pain. For most the physical pain is long forgotten once the baby is born. For others the pain they feel is deeper than physical and can last a lifetime.

While mothers are celebrated this Mother’s Day there will be some that will have haunting thoughts of the day they became pregnant. There are far more than society knows. Many have been abandoned for having chosen life for their baby. But they remain certain that choosing life was the best possible choice. Their pain is changed to joy in the presence of life.

Let’s take a look at Brooke Bida, who conceived in violence, a beautiful baby who is half Asian. She was able to hold, love and nurture her baby for one month before she had to leave her baby in the arms of new parents. While her child did not “look” like Brooke she was definitely Brooke’s daughter. This mother made the ultimate sacrifice for her child wanting the best for her. Today Brooke longs to embrace her baby again. She is not happy to “be rid of her” as some might think. That baby was loved by her mother even though she was conceived in violence. Brooke gave life to her daughter and is to be honored as a mother and a hero.

Here is Danielle Kleber. She is a single mom with three sons. One was conceived in rape but you can’t tell which one. She loves all her sons and wouldn’t be without any of them. The memory of this one son’s conception is covered by the joy of her son’s face. She is a mother who endured great trauma to have this great joy in her life. She has no regrets. Her joy is overflowing. Let her be honored as a hero as well as a mother.

 

 

 

 

 

Kaylee Swanson was raped too. Her son gave her purpose in life. No one could have imagined that this “unwanted pregnancy” would be life changing.  She said, “Until he was born, I didn’t believe the “love at first sight” saying, but I do believe there is such a thing between a mother and her child.  It didn’t even take seeing him — it was as soon as I first heard his cry!” She once was pro choice but after becoming pregnant she says, “I knew that there was a life inside of me who had no choice of how he came to be, I became steadfastly pro-life. Nine or ten months of your life — sustaining a life — is easier to deal with than aborting for an eternity.”  Dishonor of rape changed into honor for a hero, in saving her child’s life. She has joy indescribable.

 

Then there is a mother who has neither a child to hold nor a child to share. One such mother is Mary Gilliam. A French woman raped in the Congo while staying with her parents. Afraid to tell anyone she was forced to tell when she learned she was pregnant. Family was influential in her decision to terminate the life of her child. For 30 years she suffered, being suicidal and condemning herself for her actions. Today she is free through the forgiveness of Jesus Christ and is now helping others to find freedom also. Her mother’s day will be sad but she knows that her baby is safe in heaven waiting for their reunion. Her joy is complete in Christ.

When we wish women a Happy Mother’s Day let’s say a pray that the Lord will heal wounds hidden in private places of their hearts.

There is no heart like the heart of God, but He was willing to share when He creates a mother.

So you know a mother like these? Let me  know theirs or your story.

    Russia Declares ‘Holy War’ On Islamic State

    The Orthodox Christian Church, which is reclaiming its traditional role in post-Soviet Russia, has just described its government’s fight against the Islamic State and other jihadi groups in Syria as a “holy war.”

    According to Vsevolod Chaplin, head of the Church’s Public Affairs Department,

    The fight with terrorism is a holy battle and today our country is perhaps the most active force in the world fighting it. The Russian Federation has made a responsible decision on the use of armed forces to defend the People of Syria from the sorrows caused by the arbitrariness of terrorists. Christians are suffering in the region with the kidnapping of clerics and the destruction of churches. Muslims are suffering no less.

    This is not a pretext to justify intervention in Syria.

    Oregon Shooting – When Tragedy Happens Let’s Focus On The Cause And Not The Tools Used

    While the blood was still dripping from those martyrs who, in front of an evil man armed with a gun, asked them if they were Christians and those strong in the faith said they were. He shot them in the head. While those who were lost or weak said nothing he spared their lives and shot them in their legs.

    Barrack Hussein Obama angrily ran to the cameras to use this opportunity to say that guns being in the hands of the law-abiding Americans is the problem, and we need to restrict the 2nd amendment to spare the lives of “we the people.”

    This is nuts; guns do not kill people, people kill people! You can test this fact in your own home right now. (Do not worry no one will get hurt).

    Gun Free Zones Are Killing Zones

    How did you feel when you heard of the shootings in Oregon this week? Was the first thing that came to your mind the thought that if we only had stricter gun control legislation, this kind of tragedy could have been prevented?

    If you listened to idiotic liberals, like President Barack “Insane” Obama, you might believe that. It is my contention that liberalism is a mental disorder based on the rejection of God and His principles, and extreme irresponsibility.

    What type of Republican Leader do you want in 2015?

    As we look at elections coming up quickly in 2015, as well as the very important 2016 election cycle, what type of “Republican” leaders do you want to shape the future of your county and country?

    Do you ever wonder why it is that the current crop of Republicans are not declaring, at every media interview, “These ills have been brought to you by the Democrat Party!” when speaking of Obamacare, the hordes of immigrants being allowed to destroy our country, the Iranian nuclear treaty, the “Black Lives Matter” racial division rhetoric, the attack on the defense of marriage, the 94 million Americans not currently in the work force,

    Child protection services should be self-explanatory based on the simplicity of its name. But they are doing exactly opposite of their name in many places. Wynne, Arkansas is one such place.
