A "yoke" run "wild"



Cute, very cute!!! If I had a humorous nature, I might say that this is a yoke gone wild.  On a more serious note, it does make me wonder when our first thoughts happen.  What is your first memory?  Mine is when I was 5 or 6 (probably 6) and climbed on the school bus with flowers in my hand for a little girl who rode to school with me.  I have no idea who she was, what she looked like, or whatever became of this kindergarten cutie, but I do remember that I liked her a lot.  I wonder how far back memories can go?  Does anyone out there remember events from 2 years of age or younger?  Since life outside the womb is viable after about seven months, I wonder what thoughts could occur BEFORE BIRTH????  Something is going on prior to our first breath of fresh air, that is for sure.  I know this because of the following passage...

WEB: Jeremiah Chapter 1
[1] The words of Jeremiah the son of Hilkiah, of the priests who were in Anathoth in the land of Benjamin: [2] to whom the word of Yahweh came in the days of Josiah the son of Amon, king of Judah, in the thirteenth year of his reign. [3] It came also in the days of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah, king of Judah, to the end of the eleventh year of Zedekiah, the son of Josiah, king of Judah, to the carrying away of Jerusalem captive in the fifth month. [4] Now the word of Yahweh came to me, saying, [5] “Before I formed you in the belly, I knew you. Before you came forth out of the womb, I sanctified you. I have appointed you a prophet to the nations.” [6] Then I said, “Ah, Lord Yahweh! Behold, I don’t know how to speak; for I am a child.”

If someone says that a fetus is less than a human being, then they call God a liar, for he says he knew Jeremiah BEFORE HIS BIRTH!!!  More than that, to end the natural birth process is to directly challenge the authority of God!!!  If God starts something and you stop it, how can that be defined other than sin?  Since a full grown chicken seems to be as dumb as a bag of nails, then the inscribed shell is nothing more than humorous fantasy, but human beings are another matter.  Our country has a lot to answer for because of our actions concerning abortion.  Have no part in abortion, resist it at every level and do what you can to end this affront to God.  I am counting the days until this is ended forever and that has far more meaning than any chicken scratches could ever have.
