He will not forsake
or abandon or ignore
the tender life
within the womb.
God loves all life
on the land, in the air,
on the earth and in the sea.
The heavens are a vast expanse
yet, they cannot contain
an entire, single breath of God.
In relation to our Lord
the infinite universe is very small.
But, do not think that
the Lord is so great,
so far off,
that he does not know you
as an individual and a beloved soul.
The Lord counts the heads of all his creation
every minute of everyday
aware of all their strength, courage and forbearance.
God knows every atom that moves freely.
He has breathed life into
every spark of being
though it be less than a second old.
God loves life and the potential of life.
It breaks the heart of the Lord
that his own loving creations
do not love the tiniest of his creations.
“When does life commence?”
they might ask in ignorance or arrogance.
To this he answers clearly,
“the second it entered my mind.”
God opens all doors and makes possible
all probabilities likely.
That tiny speck of life may hold
infinite possibilities –
this should never be overlooked.
It is through the mind, heart and soul
that all living things share themselves
with God and each other.
This is how the Lord shares himself with the multitudes.
Remember this, God loves all life.
He commands everyone
to protect the least among humankind.
Let no one allow the unborn to die
for the unborn are without fault
even when their conception was caused to happen
through suffering or pain.
A lack of love by humanity
does not mean
the unborn are not lovable by humanity.
Every spark of life
is one step closer to touching
the face of God and knowing
his gentle and awesome continence.
