Today was different though. I'm not sure what it was, but somehow during a discussion on birth control, at a local moms group that I go to, I was struck by the fact that I do not fit in.
We had a public health nurse talking about the different forms of birth control. She mentioned that they are now saying its OK to take the Pill continually so you never get your period. That immediately got my heart racing. I feel so strongly that chemical birth control is just wrong, and completely disregarding what God created our bodies to do just goes against every fiber of my being. You may disagree with me, and that wouldn't surprise me.
There are other areas though, where I just don't even want to speak up anymore, for fear of being slammed for my views. I'm sure people already talk about me behind my back for the things I believe in. You know what though? I'm going to hold my head up high and just continue on. I want the best for my family, as we all do. I just may have a different opinion on what the 'best' is.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~I've been listening to a song all afternoon. It's Psalm 23, by Brent & Temple. I discovered this song on YouTube. Temple posted this video of herself singing this song while in labor with her son, and it's just a beautiful, peaceful song. It's so calming, and I hope to sing it sometime either on my own, or with Keith's sisters.
While listening to this song, I've been thinking about a family from our church that just lost their daughter on Saturday. I hope they are feeling peace, and that their faith in God is bringing them comfort at this time.
