The last few weeks have been busy with my work, cleaning, cooking, child rearing and thinking. Thinking about things that are near to my heart and things that concern me about the way our country is being run..... yes, I am going to talk about politics.... Before I say one more word, I am going to tell EVERYONE - if you leave a comment today DO NOT slam on ANYONE else. This is a respectful post and I value others opinions even when I don't agree with them, for the simple fact that I EXPECT the same respect I offer and show.... period.... That being said here ya go everyone.
What has happened to us - not our country but to us as people? Why do we not protect every life no matter what the stage of it, the 'value' of it, the cost of it, the 'out come' of it or the simple fact that its God given? I look at all of the things that go on around me and it truly saddens me that we are a society of people who want 'convenience' to rule their lives. The morals, values and yes traditions that MOST of the United States citizens hold dear are NOT reflected in our politics and our governing body's. I know that I am far removed from the 'city' and the 'city' way of life, I am not cutting on anyone who lives in the city - I am only stating what I know about 'country folks' - yes we are a simple bunch for all whom feel the need to educate me... When I refer to 'city folk' I am making a judgement only because I don't know what else to call people who differ from me in lifestyle, not actual location of residence ,,,, clear as mud? :) Back to the point of my post. Why do city folk feel the need to have the life of another be less than, if its not what they would want? Why do they feel that an unborn child, an embryo (stem cell), an elderly person who may or may not have their 'right mind', for a child born that was unwanted, or a child that was the outcome of a botched abortion is now considered and I quote 'a product of intercourse', for a person that is not 'productive' or is retarded, a person that has brain damage and is 'not there' - is less than what God intended them to be? My mind and soul can not fathom the reasoning behind the actions of city folk - the selfishness, the self absorbed actions, the need to have all of their wants fulfilled IMMEDIATELY if not sooner and the thought that they are entitled to it all. I have a very difficult time writing about this without getting angry and accusatory, but I have a conviction today to write about this because it is so dear to me. This is my opinion and I am completely entitled to it as you all are to yours... I can not understand how people who say they value life will consider taking a life in the hope of saving another.... willfully. If a person or child dies and are gracious enough to allow their body's to be used for others - GREAT. To take from what God has given or has allowed to be made, shame on us. Why do city folk feel that they are entitled to one more day than God has graced them with - that they MUST live a productive, enjoyment filled life???? Is that an inherent right from God. NO, we are to be as he desires us to be. Examples to others and that includes the sick, lame or disadvantaged. I know what you are all thinking, I am a cold hearted person and that I don't feel for the children that suffer disease that 'stem cell's could fix.... I have never lost a child, I have never had a sick child that I have watched fade away and die... your half right. I feel that all life is precious and that is for a purpose - especially the sick and less than. They serve as reminders that we are fortunate, blessed and most of all required to be loving and generous. To help those that can be helped and to comfort those who can not. To take notice of their life and cherish the times that you have with them. I could not in good conscience live with the fact that a treatment/cure was found for me at the expense of an unborn child or undeveloped child's life. No, I don't want to see people especially children suffer, yet I believe that God allows these things to teach us the value of life - not that everyone should live 100 years. He gives us a certain amount of days - I believe that is true for everyone including children. I sound cold hearted and undeserving of my children you say? Well, let me tell you that I have not had sick children that I have watched suffer and pass away - I would not wish that on anyone. But I have lost, 6 children to be exact. But I know that God has allowed these loss's to teach me to love even more the ones I have and to cherish His blessings. To make sure that I do right by them and love them as He does. I would have loved to been able for my children's short lives to have mattered to someone other than me, for their tiny body's to have brought about good for others... but they did not. I will never be able to understand a woman that willfully lets her child be taken from her body - I am not judging her I am stating I will never understand it. To me, this is where the 'city folk' come in to play - self absorbed, don't want to be stuck with a mistake.... A very important person once said - I will teach my daughters morals, but if they make mistakes I don't want them to be punished with a baby..... wow, sad statement huh. A child is punishment for wrong doing? The child isn't the punishment, the responsibility of a child is because some one wasn't being responsible in the first place. If a child is punishment than prison is a cake walk.... tv, cable, no cleaning, no cooking, no working etc. We are teaching our children that shirking the responsible thing to do is ok... shame on us. Our fellow people are going to be paying a very high price at our children's expense. All children are an inconvenience, yes they are - don't judge me for saying that because its true, let me finish before you hang me.... but its an inconvenience that we choose and desire. I guess more than anything I want to understand, not agree with, why someone chooses to end life. I believe that the Bible is the inherent word of God, not just stories passed down. In the Bible God says 'Above all else choose life'. How is that misunderstood by a 'man of faith'...... It does NOT say choose life at the willful expense/death of another. Above all else choose life - over money, over material things, over pleasure, over 'good feelings' over everything - ABOVE ALL ELSE.... For those who have retarded children, autistic children or children with disabilities - do you believe your child has worth? Because I am seriously afraid that others don't. The same ones who implore for the destruction of embryos for the sake of a cure, are the same ones that consider your children to be less than perfectly created for Gods work. These city folk are also the ones who would allow your daughter to get birth control at 13 without you knowing it. Think it doesn't happen, I assure you it does and is done with your tax dollars. As I have said before this is my opinion and I have my right to it just as you have to yours. I don't want to be judged for it, but measured by it......
