this holy opportunity

curves

"The world has pitifully, laughably little to offer in comparison
to this holy opportunity to raise up a child.
"

Happy weekend, my friends.

I took the picture today of a friend of mine who is due in 3 weeks. I spotted the quote over a year ago at a blog called sodarnhappy. It's not there any more. If you know anything about it, perhaps you could let me know.

Beautiful photograph of the mum-tobe. It really is an opportunity to raise a child. And a wonderful responsibility.

Have a great weekend, Relyn.

as I read these profound words the music played in the backround ..sad in a way and
I thought of those precious babies murdered after birth by the abortionist who has now been charged with their murders
who cries for them
who cries for the unfairness that they were not only unwanted children but suffered in their brief lives
God bless those who want to be parents and God bless the children born to them....truly a blessing to raise a child..yes a holy opportunity
