And how can you mend a broken heart?
How can you stop the rain from falling down?
How can you stop the sun from shining?
What makes the world go round?
Song Lyrics, Robin and Barry Gibbs (the Bee Gees)
(The Mayor itching to get in the rain / Julie Cook / 2020)
These are pictures of The Mayor itching to get out into the rain
What is it that draws kids to the water…itching to get out into the rain???
Well, we had to take the Mayor back home yesterday and naturally, it broke my heart.
It always breaks my heart to take her home.
She was adamant that she did not want to go home.
I suspect that it had a great deal to do with the fact that she did not
want to go home because she knew that the new daycare was in her future, once again.
Funny that a 2 and half-year-old knows what the cards have in store.
And naturally, it breaks my heart that I can’t just keep her 24/7.
I can’t tell you how much I love those kids–The Mayor and her brother, the Sheriff.
And so I think about how much we love our children and our grandchildren…
and yet I think about what just happened in Georgia–
The Georgia House bill—the Abortion Bill 481–aka the Georgia Heartbeat bill,
was unsurprisingly ruled unconstitutionally this week.
A heartbreaking ruling…
Children are our future, our hope, our love…not some sort of commodity that can
easily tossed aside on some sort of whim…
Life is not a mere whim…
There are six things that the Lord hates,
seven that are an abomination to him:
haughty eyes, a lying tongue,
and hands that shed innocent blood,
a heart that devises wicked plans,
feet that make haste to run to evil,
a false witness who breathes out lies,
and one who sows discord among brothers.
