ALL Children Are GIFTS From GOD

Children are a gift from the LORD,
They are a reward from Him. (Psalm 127:3)

You formed my inward parts;
You covered me in my mother's womb.

I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Marvelous are Your works,
And that my soul knows very well.

My frame was not hidden from You,
When I was made in secret,
And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.

Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed.
And in Your book they all were written,
The days fashioned for me,
When as yet there were none of them.
(Psalm 139:13-16)

Triple Threat from San Diego...the Three Musketeers.

German version of Hang in there, baby!

Kristika, with the Mona Lisa smile...all the way from Taveuni.

She (and her family) goes to the Assembly of GOD church in New Town, Taveuni. CHRISTian Indians are a rarity in Fiji, as most of the Indian population are Muslims.

Ema's from Naselesele Village -- she is a beautiful inside and out!

Another little cutie from Naselesele Village...probably in Kindergarten this year.

Some of the wonderful children of Naselesele Village Primary School.

Little Beni...from the Naselesele Village, Taveuni. He's my friend.

And this is little Jo. He is like a grown man in a toddler body...he is strong-willed and outspoken already! He lives with his grandmother and three young cousins.

Filo, Talei, with baby Ligani...another baby brother, still "in the oven," was not yet born when this photo was taken.

Leone, chowing down on his birthday cake. He's about 5 years old today...feisty, to say the least!

Deep in thought...i sometimes wonder what goes on in "little people's" minds.

This boy was so feisty, i had to kickbox with him...literally! And he beat me to a pulp!

i met these kids when i was in Paunzhausen, Germany. What polar opposites, compared to the kids from the Village.

Curly headed bundle of joy!
Rarotonga (Cook Islands) beauties...i heard it said that the kids in the Cooks learn to dance before they learn to walk!

Best of friends...they were inseparable...glued at the hip (or cheek, from this photo)...from Bibi's HideAway -- Matei, Taveuni (Fiji)

What if any of these children were "terminated" while in the womb, each one already a live person, just living inside another's body? What if any of these children were "clinically removed" because they were just a "bunch of cells"? What if any of these children were "aborted" because the birth control method failed and this is the last-resort "birth control" method?

From Creation (egg and sperm joining together to make one live, growing, beginning of a human being) to final exhale -- is GOD's arena. He created, He alone can un-create. The Divine Designer has final say on the outcome and longevity of His design. Those who play at god do not know GOD. He is a loving Father who keeps His eye on all children. Premeditated murder (for how else can one interpret the word abortion? Killing -- "aborting" -- an unborn child is not accidental...it is an act that is planned in advance and by appointment) is a heinous crime...and no amount of justification or excuses will relieve that person of guilt, for it is written and engraved in every person's heart, Thou shalt not kill. And GOD has promised, Vengeance is mine! (Romans 12:19)

And yet, for a guilt-ridden killer, there is pardon. The same loving Father who avenges His little ones provides merciful forgiveness through His Son, CHRIST JESUS. In CHRIST alone is salvation. In CHRIST alone is pardon.

All children are gifts from GOD.

You were once a child. You were once a baby. You were once a "bunch of cells." You were once an egg and sperm organism...and you were NOT an accident, for GOD had created you even before you were created in your mother's womb...you were created in His infinitely intelligent Mind. All children are gifts from GOD, including you.(Please read Lying Words Never Profit from Rapture Alert.)
