October 15

October 15 is National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day. As I was thinking about today, and this month, my heart grieves for all my friends that have experienced the magnitude of such a deep and painful loss. A loss I can’t even comprehend. My heart is with all the women and families that are remembering today… this month… always. I am so, so deeply sorry.

During my post-abortion counseling, I came across the Abort73 website, and it’s become a ministry that’s close to my heart. The idea is simply to generate awareness, and I’m all about that. I recently illustrated this t-shirt for them, and wanted to share it with you. Feel free to pull the graphic off my blog or check out the t-shirt here.

Design Explanation (from Abort73.com)
The requirements of Micah 6:8 are especially pertinent to abortion. To act justly, we must work to protect the innocent human beings who are being aborted all around us. To love mercy, we must extend kindness and compassion to those who have aborted. And to walk humbly, we must remember that each of us has failed to live up to this standard in a thousand different ways.

I’m not trying to make a huge political or spiritual statement here, trust me. Here’s hoping that justice, love, and mercy are things that we can all hope for.

Thank you, Jesus, for second and third and millionth chances, and thank you for the promise of Heaven.
love, lindsay
