The Choice By Monique Jordan

January is Sanctity of Life Month

She was but a child of fifteen years old When the life changing news she was told In nine months from now she’d be a mother She could keep it, kill it, or give to another
The choice was hers alone to make To have the child or its life to take To give it away to another And give up her rights as its mother
She was told of a doctor who could use a hanger To “take care of the problem,” but with some danger In confusion and fear she opened the door Horrified at the pool of blood on the floor
She ran and cried and fell to her knees Begging for God to please, please, please Help her to do the only right thing And into the world this life to bring
She heard a voice inside her say “My child, everything will be okay” In months the baby took her first breath My mother had chosen life and not death
Today I give thanks to the Father above For my mother’s selfless and undying love Mom, thank you for making life your choice And for yielding to that still small voice
There’s no greater love than what you gave You spared us all from the miniature grave And to those with a choice to make today Please know that everything will be okayDeut 30: 19-20b (NIV) This day I call heaven and earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live and that you may love the Lord you God, listen to his voice, and hold fast to him.Monique Jordan is new to the writing world.
