An image-bearer: Chris from Apricot Farms

Here’s the HuffPo piece…

Now, be sure and watch the video. And check out the transcript from the HuffPo piece linked above.

And consider this:

 

See the worth, the joy, the zest for life?

Do you see the image of God in that man!?!?!?   It’s not in his imperfect legs and arms.   It’s not in his stunted growth.   It’s in his soul.

It’s in his resourcefulness and his creativity and his graciousness.

I don’t know if Chris is a believer, but I do know this:

EVERY person conceived has worth as an image-bearer of our Lord God.

And if HuffPo and the pro-abortion minions there and other prog places around the internet don’t see this, it’s proof of the darkness of their souls.

How can they legitimately celebrate this man’s life at the same time they celebrate laws that take life away from others, just because in some flawed person’s thinking that other’s life is not worthy.

 

For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb.

I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.

Wonderful are your works;  my soul knows it very well.

My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth.

Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them,

the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.

Psalm 139:13-16

The MOST Inspiring Farmer You’ll Ever Meet

Meet Chris.

He’s a farmer at Apricot Lane Farms in Moorpark, Calif., and has been farming his entire life. It’s a physically demanding career that Chris handles with deceptive ease, but his life is still comprised of physical limitations: He can’t drive legally, he can’t weed-whack, he can’t operate a chainsaw, he can’t swim (“You drop a bowling ball and me in the water at the same time, I will beat the bowling ball to the bottom nine times out of… nine!” he jokes) and he can’t complete everyday tasks without exerting far more energy than most.

That’s because Chris was born without arms or legs…………

That Moment When… by Hannah Hunter

A post over at my daughter’s blog, Mr. Hunter’s Wife, is getting a lot of attention today. I think it’s a picture of grace and beauty. But, I’m biased.

Mr. Hunter's Wife

Most people know of the new trend on social websites that starts a sentence with “that moment when”. Usually, people use it to highlight an awkward situation, a hilarious incident, a “what in the world” reaction to another human’s lack of common sense, etc.

Well. Yesterday, I was sitting around reading Psalm 139 and thought to myself:

That moment when you realize God knew you before you were conceived.

And then I kind of got carried away.

That moment when God foreknew you and predestined you to be His.

That moment when Christ came into the world, lived His fully God, fully human life, and died thinking of His elect.

That moment when you realize that He thought of you because you are one of His elect.

That moment when you actually start to cry because you’re homesick for heaven.

That moment when unbelievers just don’t get it and you…
