Blonde moment

And the silver spoon.

Grace…

Go and visit the Painomomsicle . You will find a neat young lady who is embracing her vocation as mother and wife with gusto .

But what would you do if she went to your church 13 months ago?

You know, she’s *that* woman.

One Sunday, her husband was playing drums at church, and she came up to me so I could fuss over David, who by all accounts, is about as cute of a kid as two good looking people have any business having. I pray for girls his age because of his blue eyes! Anyway, I *had* to fuss over David, and, who wouldn’t? I showed him off to my dad, and then the Pastor’s wife and mother-in-law made a proper fuss over him, because, again, he’s a great kid!

And that is what should have happened to the church she went to 14 months ago.

We, as Christians, don’t embrace women like the Pianomomsicle as we should. If we are truly pro-life, and one of our college aged women falls into the heat of passion (and, let’s be honest here, who hasn’t been tempted?) we shun her, even if she does the incredibly difficult thing and stands up and says, “I will marry the father and raise my son the way Jesus wants me to!”

The Painomomsicle is due respect because she has done the culturally unaccepted thing, and has behaved, in every respect, like the responsible Christian woman I know her to be. She should no longer be asked to live in shame thinking, “ How do I teach my son to do what I didn’t?” We should encourage such women to hold their heads up and walk in freedom. And when the time comes, we all tell her son that the Painomomsicle exhibits every quality a Christian should have, a repentant and humble spirit.

I have seen Painomomsicle grow up, and I am proud to call her my friend.
