I just finished reading Shades of Blue by Karen Kingsbury. It is a great book. The book is about a man who lives in NY and is getting married in six weeks and a teacher in North Carolina. The book is about abortion and the devastation it can have on that man and woman ten years after the abortion. The book is about healing and getting God's forgiveness for killing your child. The book is excellent!
Yes, abortion is killing a child, it is not getting rid of a mass of cells. Ecclesiastes 11:5 "As thou knowest not what is the way of the spirit, nor how the bones do grow in the womb of her that is with child: even so thou knowest not the works of God who maketh all." Jeremiah 1:5 "Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee..." Yes, abortion will haunt the mother and the father for the rest of their lives! Yes, abortion does hurt the grandparents too. Yes, abortion is a sin. Yes, God will forgive you of this sin if you ask. Yes, you must learn to forgive yourself also. Luke 11:4 "And forgive us our sins; for we also forgive every one that is indebted to us. And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil." 1John 1:9 "If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." Yes, there is another option besides abortion - it is adoption.
Brad and Emma made a bad decision in high school and tried to fix that decision with a decision that was even worse. They were in love and thought they would be together forever, but could not go back to the way it was before they lost control, and then after the abortion there was no going back. Ten years later they were both struggling with what they had done, but in different ways. This is an excellent book that needs to be read.
