Every human life has value.

I know things have been pretty quiet on this blog for the past week. I’ve been in a bit of a funk lately. I sit down to write or even just comment on some news story and little to nothing comes to my mind. How does a writer write in the absence of creative thought?? This has been happening a lot lately. :-/ Plus I have had some other work/activities to keep me a little preoccupied most days. One of those was a surprise baby shower for a dear friend of mine yesterday. She is pregnant with her third baby boy! Please keep her in your prayers. She’s due in about a month and she’s been having a few complications this time around.

Here are a few pics of the cute babies in attendance at her shower, plus one of me and her and the invisible little one in her womb.

My friend’s second boy enjoying a cupcake – probably a little too much!

Look at those cheeks!

This tiny, perfect little girl was born just last Friday, one month premature.

There’s a baby in that belly! When a woman conceives, God reaches down and touches the female body and creates a new and wholly unique soul within her! Ahh!! How beautiful and mysterious is the belly of a pregnant woman – how perfect is the construction of life in the womb.

    Same thing happened to me. I had been updating my blog daily, but I got to a point where I ran out of ideas. So, I decided to just take a break. That’s my advice. :-)

    Cute photos. You look good. Hope all goes well with your friend. Will pray for her.

    God bless.
