Clarion Forensics Tournament..... One baby changed lives

Last week we were at my all time favorite tournament. Worshiping together with our friends reminded me of what heaven will be like. One of the families found out during the tournament that their baby, which was due in three weeks, had died. Everyone was in shock. How could something like this happen? We all pulled together. I don't understand why things like this happen. But I know the one who does. Sometimes we just have to trust. Like Joseph in the Bible, we need to trust that good will come out of the pain. Even through this, so many lives were touched. Mine was. My mom lost three babies. That made it hurt more. I never got to hold those siblings, or see their smiles. I never got to love them and sing to them. I still feel sometimes the loss of their presence. Through that I have come to realize how much we take for granted. We take people and lives for granted.
Seeing how much that baby was wanted and loved made my heart ache for the ones who aren't. So many just abort their babies. Millions have been killed. WHY? People didn't care. But Jesus does. HE LOVES EVERY PERSON ON THIS PLANET. Show his love. Shine his light. Share his compassion. Reach another soul.

Have a great week and try to pray for all those considering abortion that they would choose life. Love you, Heidi
