"Can a woman forget her nursing child And have no compassion on the son of her womb? Even these may forget, but I will not forget you.

That passage above is Isaiah 49:15

You probably know it.

I thought of it because of two terrorfilled news stories I heard today.

One, a Mother from Maryland killed and kept two small girls in the freezer at her home. The other is the Calee affair from Florida. In a text message, the mom called Calee "That little Snot".

I don't know how a mom can carry a child for a full term, nurse that Child and then essentially forget the child. This isn't about abortion. This is about empty souls.

I won't even think of the cases of child murder we have seen in the last decade. Susan Smith comes to mind. Children about to be drown waving to their mother who they trust strapped into their child seats as she pushed the car into the lake.

In a way, the comparisom to God's view of us and a mothers of a child leaves the mother badly wanting.

God will never abandon you or call you a little snot.
