Life is Valuable

I chose "Life with Mamita" as a blog name, not only because I hope to share our day-to-day lives with you, but also because life is so valuable to me. Life is precious, and it should not be taken for granted or carelessly disposed of. I have a passion for children - both big and small.

I love teenagers. They have SO much energy and they love to learn and think as they grow into mature adults and begin to really grasp the world around them. They have so much hope for the future.

And I love babies. There is nothing like snuggling with a newly bathed newborn. As you look into their eyes, you see the face of God. They are so innocent and so precious.

So, it makes sense that I would love to teach teenagers about babies. Tonight, I shared with our youth group about unborn babies. We talked about what the Bible says about abortion. Then we covered some gray areas that even pro-lifers have a hard time answering. Next week, we get to the meat of the issue, when I will share the scientific and physical evidence for the personhood of the unborn. Then we'll get into philosophical arguments. It should be very enlightening.

Since we have no news on Cupcake, and since I've been focusing so directly on this issue over the last several weeks as I prepared for tonight and next week, I think I might share with you some of the material we are going over. So, forgive me if I get too deep or step on your toes. This is a passion of mine, and if I help someone else grasp the truth, then I've succeeded in passing on the truth. If you disagree, I'm willing to talk about it.

Blessings to you,
Mamita J
