Take the time to read this:
It takes courage to live this life.
Courage to face painful times,
Courage to face broken relationships, rebellious children, addicted spouses.
Courage to deal with loss.
The loss of our homes, our money, our dreams.
And courage to look death in the face and see all the beauty of life.
For Deidrea and T.K. Laux, their courage gave them five precious days with their son, Thomas.
Thomas was born with Trisonomy 13, a fatal disorder.
They filmed this heart-wrenching tribute to their son, to parenthood, to life.
And now they have the memory of those five days when they got to hold, feed, bathe and change Thomas.
Five days to love and bond and imprint their hearts with the knowledge of their child.
Five days in which Thomas lived a lifetime of love in the arms of his courageous parents.
Life is Beautiful.

Because for the last forty years America has gotten so used to abortion, that we elected a man to the Presidency who voted to stop a law that would have prevented the worst form of abortion...infanticide.
The Born-Alive Act demanded that doctors and nurses make every effort to save the life of a baby that survived abortion. And it was based on the testimony of a nurse in a Chicago hospital who held these viable infants, unwilling to watch a living human being tossed into a utility room to die alone.
No one disputed her testimony except...Obama.
In the Illinois senate, Obama not only voted against the Born-Alive Act twice, but as chairmen of the Health and Human Services Committee, he made sure the bill never came up for a vote.It was not until he left Illinois for the U.S. Senate that the bill went for a vote and passed unanimously into law.
When these facts came to light before the Presidential election, there was nary a peep of shock or dismay.
Not even from professing Christians.
And I knew America had lost its collective way.
There are many people like me, who stood in confusion while a man who admitted babies were a "punishment", was hailed as a hero in our land.
And yet now, with this healthcare bill scaring the daylights out of seniors and the rest of us who know what it will do...we get to see the effects of abortion.
Of what happens when our leadership defends it. When people vote for the hardest of hearts to protect it.
Do these people really think they would never be considered "unwanted" or looked on as a "punishment" one day?
Life is tricky that way. Some people call it 'karma'.
I call it a season of grief.redink
