SPECIAL CHILD

by Edna Massimala

A meeting was held quite far from Earth;
"It's time again for another Birth",

Said the Angels to the Lord above,
This special child will need much love.

His progress may be very slow;
Accomplishments he may not show.

And he'll require extra care
From the folks he meets down there.

He may not run or laugh or play.
His thoughts may seem quite far away.

In many ways he won't adapt
And he'll be known as 'handicapped'.

So let's be careful where he's sent;
We want his life to be content.

Please Lord, find the Parents who
Will do a special job for you.

They will not realize right away
The leading role they're asked to play.

But with this child sent from above
Comes stronger Faith and richer Love.

And soon they'll know the privilege given
In caring for their gift from Heaven.

Their precious charge, so meek and mild
Is Heaven's very Special Child.

************************************************************
Isaiah 55: 8,9

"For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways, saith the Lord.
For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways,
and My thoughts than your thoughts".



Dedicated to our Mary Catherine and Barbara Ann,
and to all Special Children everywhere.

This charm is wasted on the earth and sky,
Tell them, dear, that if eyes were made for seeing,
Then Beauty is its own excuse for being".....

SCORN NOT HIS SIMPLICITY by Phil Coulter hopetotheend.com/scorn.html

THE INTERROGATION hopetotheend.com/tenboom.html

"Thus saith the LORD, Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom,
neither let the mighty man glory in his might,
let not the rich man glory in his riches:
But let him that glorieth glory in this,
that he understandeth and knoweth ME."
Jeremiah 9:23,24

also see Jeremiah 17: 9, 10.....
"The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?
I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins (motives)."
even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings."


In his State of the Union address in 1905, Roosevelt stated:
"There are those who believe that a new modernity demands a new morality. What they fail to consider is the harsh reality that there is no such thing as a new morality. There is only one morality. All else is immorality. There is only true Christian ethics over against which stands the whole of paganism. If we are to fulfill our great destiny as a people, then we must return to the old morality, the sole morality. ... All these blatant sham reformers, in the name of a new morality, preach the old vice of self-indulgence which rotted out first the moral fiber and then even the external greatness of Greece and Rome."

Only Christians Value Life --

Church of England allows killing handicapped babies  -- financial expediency
Comments at end of article
And the Bishop of Southwark, Tom Butler, who is the vice chair of the Church of England's Mission and Public Affairs Council, has also argued that the high financial cost of keeping desperately ill babies alive should be a factor in life or death decisions
A spokeswoman for the UK Disabled People's Council, which represents tens of thousands of members in 140 different organisations, said:
"How can the Church of England say that Christian compassion includes killing of disabled babies either through the withdrawing or withholding of treatment or by active euthanasia?
"It is not for doctors or indeed anyone else to determine whether a baby’s life is worthwhile simply on the grounds of impairment or health condition
Yet the Revd Butler's submission makes clear that there are a wide range of acceptable reasons to withdraw care from a child - with the cost of the care among the considerations

UK Disabled Peoples Council spokeswoman Simone Aspis said the group's members were appalled that the Church was joining doctors in calling for disabled babies to be left to die.
"It appears that the whole debate on whether disabled babies are worth keeping alive is being dominated by professionals and religious people without any consultation with disabled people," she said

Terry Shiavo murdered by priests' consent  -- Vatican upholds stand against euthanasia
Fortunately, there were many other priests and some bishops who were appalled by what was happening. The Vatican began issuing their own statements. Cardinal Javier Lozano Barragan, president of the Pontifical Council for Health Care, said, "Food and hydration are never considered medicine. To remove them means euthanasia, it means killing, and so this woman was killed by hunger and starvation. Let's stop with the euphemisms - they killed her."
Then, on March 31, Cardinal (Renato) Martino issued the strongest statement yet from Rome, when he said,
"Whoever stands idly by without trying to prevent the death of Terri Schindler-Schiavo becomes an accomplice to murder."
Terri was successfully murdered as she succumbed to the extended withholding of food and water on March 31, 2005.
