Miscellaneous Monday – June 18, 2007

Last week, I told you 3 things that make me happy. This week, I’ll tell you 3 things that make me sad.

I am sad . . .

1. That there are more than 3500 unborn babies killed every day in the United States (probably 126,000 a day in the world). And that doesn’t even include babies who die within days of conception because an IUD or birth control pill or other form of hormone birth control has thinned the lining of the mother’s uterus, preventing the baby from implanting and surviving.

2. When I lose it and fuss at my children or discipline them out of anger or frustration.

3. That our society measures people’s worth by their physical beauty and perfection and by their power and ability to make money. That our society does not value people for simply being made in the image of God and reflecting some aspect of His character.

What about you? What makes you sad?

  1. I am sad…

    1. That every day in the United States over 100 babies are born who have been prenatally affected by alcohol.

    2. When People magazine tell pregnant women, “Some doctors feel limited drinking-no more than a pint a day, suggests Dr. Gibb-after the first trimester is okay.” (April 17, 2006)

    3. When professionals try to “fix” or “cure” my daughter rather than embrace and celebrate her differences.

    2. People who refuse to think, and still keep talking.
    3. Cold weather.
