Another Thankful Thursday is upon us, can you believe it? Time flies by these days. What am I thankful for today? My life, my precious life. As I was out visiting blogs today, I stopped by dear Leas blog. Today, she shared a video from focus on the family. It was about a young woman by the name of Gianna, she shared her story of being an abortion survivor. Please go by Leas blog, and watch this heart touching video. As I sat here watching this precious soul tell her story, my heart began to race, and tears started flowing. My friends, God spoke to me through this video. My heart was deeply exposed, years of locked up feelings, came pouring out. I have been released from a deep pain, healing can now truly begin. Praise God from whom all blessings flow. You see, I am also an abortion survivor. When my mom was 30 years old, she found out she was pregnant with me. It was not a planned pregnancy, she already had two boys and a girl. They were 11,9, and 6. My dad got very upset when she told him she was pregnant, he told her she would have to get rid of me. She went to her doctor, and told him that she could not have another child. He gave her some pills to take that would cause her to abort me. She went home, took the amount of pills that he had told her to take, and within an hour, she was spotting, but that was all. So, she took more, and then she started bleeding very heavy, and cramping badly. She and my dad thought that she had passed me, no more baby. Until one night, when she felt me kick. She was three months pregnant, and could not believe that she was still pregnant!! I was meant to be, God saved me. I was born with my appendix in my back, and have had to deal with several health problems due to those pills. I forgave my momma a long time ago, I loved her so very much. I was her caregiver before she passed away in 2006. God gave me a precious gift, He blessed me by letting me lead my momma to Him. I prayed for her for many years, and in 2005 when her health really started deteriorating, she asked me to help her get saved, she wanted God to forgive her. Praise God for answered prayers. So, you see, life is precious. I realize now, I am a survivor. Thanks for opening my eyes Lord. Sorry this post has been a long one, but I wanted to share my thankfulness.
