. . . Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brethren, you did it to me.
(Matthew 25:40; Jesus speaking)

Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations.
(Jeremiah 1:5)

For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother's womb. I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made . . . My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret . . . Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.
(Psalm 139:13-16: KJV)

. . . he will be filled with the Holy Spirit, even from his mother's womb.
[referring to John the Baptist]
(Luke 1:15)

And when Elizabeth heard the greeting of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb . . . "For behold, when the voice of your greeting came to my ears, the babe in my womb [John the Baptist] leaped for joy."

If you faint in the day of adversity, your strength is small. Rescue those who are being taken away to death . . . If you say, "Behold, we did not know this," does not he who weighs the heart perceive it? . . . and will he not requite man according to his work?
(Proverbs 24:10-12)

And you took your sons and your daughters, whom you had borne to me, and these you sacrificed . . .
(Ezekiel 16:20)

. . . Are you not children of transgression, the offspring of deceit, you who burn with lust among the oaks, under every green tree; who slay your children in the valleys, under the clefts of the rocks?
(Isaiah 57:4-5)

For they have committed adultery, and blood is upon their hands . . . . they have defiled my sanctuary . . . For when they had slaughtered their children in sacrifice to their idols, on the same day they came into my sanctuary to profane it . . .
(Ezekiel 23:37-39)

How long will you judge unjustly and show partiality to the wicked? Give justice to the weak and the fatherless . . . Rescue the weak and needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked.
(Psalm 82:2-4)

Therefore thou dost correct little by little those who trespass, and dost remind and warn them of the things wherein they sin, that they may be freed from wickedness and put their trust in thee, O Lord. Those who dwelt of old in thy holy land thou didst hate for their detestable practices . . . their merciless slaughter of children . . . these parents who murder helpless lives, thou didst will to destroy by the hands of our fathers.

Thank you kindly, Stacey. I'm glad you dropped by (you'
re welcome to come "hang out" any time!), and keep up the good work!

My wife Judy home-schools too. I always say it is the most important work in the world. Don't ever let anyone look down on you for doing it or for being a SAHM! I have the utmost respect for and admiration of that.
