Our family has returned from a lovely vacation, refreshed but overwhelmed with the realization that the locals in our resident area have been pulling the wool over our eyes for the past few years. You see, we had a splendid time in the Fort Walton Beach, FL area, soaking up the sun on the beach, leaping in the emerald waters, and listening to the crash of the waves. We have now returned to Pontoon Beach, IL. I can’t quite put my finger on it, but something is missing.
However, the joy of relaxing in the beauty of God’s creation must meet against the sorrow of the human destruction of creation. This is a manifold tragedy, one aspect of which I am reminded of today.
Today or tomorrow, the Illinois senate will vote on whether or not to ratify SB 25, the Reproductive Health Act–a blue state response to the abortion-denouncing legislation that has been going forward in red states lately. This heinous piece of legislation, if passed, will greatly expand the slaughter of the most helpless, the killing of innocents in the womb.
Say a prayer for Illinois today.
And Maranatha–our Lord, come!
