Little Hands

(Recently a wonderful young woman shared this poem with me. Her drawing touched my heart. I would like to share her words and art with you today.)

Little hands and little feet
God’s creation simple ‘n sweet.

Beautiful children under His care
Specifically created – every last hair

Harm should never come to one so small
But who would have guessed, he’d never grow tall.

He was an inconvenience.
He was an embarrassment.

He was a hindrance.
They disregarded his brilliance.

He was torn from the womb.
Without a second glance.

He had no choice.
He gets no second chance.
(drawing and words by Miranda L., 2014)

About Heidi Viars

“If you look for truth, you may find comfort in the end; if you look for comfort you will not get either comfort or truth ...” ― C.S. Lewis ..... In my pursuit of self, I found utter darkness. In my pursuit of truth, I found Jesus, who dispelled the darkness by His forgiveness. Now I follow Him and try to understand Him better. I am a wife, mother of 6, blogger and love taking photographs of sunrises.

    This connects with me deeply. Precious, precious little ones. Precious, precious moms trying to escape. And a good deal of lies and misinformation surrounds it all. Heartbreaking. Redeemable, still. ❤

  3. Thanks for sharing this Heidi. Every life matters to God, no matter how young.

  4. Heartbreaking…thank you for Truth today. And the sacredness of life.

  5. Such a horrible evil is abortion. One God cannot dismiss. I love the perspective of the poem, from that of the infant. Yes – it is a baby! Thanks Heidi
