When God speaks a name twice

Couple tries to sell baby at Walmart

I hate to post these heartbreaking stories, and I promise that the next entry will be the one I am really working on, ("pharmakeia"), but this was too heart-rendingly appropriate of an example of the 2 Timothy verse which says:
"This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God. Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. (2 Tim 3:1-5)
In the bible, the term "without natural affection" is 'astorgos' which means family affection, or hard-hearted towards kindred.

Police: Calif couple tried to sell baby for $25 at Walmart


"SALINAS, Calif. -- A California couple faces child endangerment charges after police say they tried to sell their 6-month-old baby for $25 outside a Walmart store. Salinas police spokesman, Officer Lalo Villegas, said Thursday that Patrick Fousek, 38, and Samantha Tomasini, 20, were arrested early Wednesday, hours after Fousek allegedly approached two women outside Walmart and asked if they'd like to purchase his child. The women initially thought Fousek was joking, but when he became persistent, they became suspicious and reported it to police, Villegas said. "They did an outstanding job and gave our officers good information. I don't know if they're mothers but they definitely had that instinct to help," Villegas said. Fousek and Tomasini were arrested at 1 a.m. Wednesday at their home. Officers said the couple appeared high on methamphetamine and the house was in disarray. A police report also claimed that Tomasini told Child Protective Services, who took the baby, that she had breast-fed the infant while under the influence, Villegas said. The couple was also booked on charges of being under the influence of narcotics, and Fousek was also served with an extra charge of violating probation. Villegas did not have details of Fousek's previous brush with the law. The couple was expected to be in court for an arraignment Friday, at which time they would be assigned public defenders." -end article-

Christian, when you pray daily, pray for His soon coming. Not just for ourselves because our soul longs to be completely fulfilled with the promise of His glory. But pray FOR THE CHILDREN. These end times are perilous indeed, and none are more in peril than society's most vulnerable: children. Don't you long for the day when we are all in heaven, in our glorified bodies, and we see the children playing in complete happiness and perfect safety? Where their bruises and scars and hurts are healed and tears are wiped away by the Most High Himself? In addition to seeing Jesus myself and bowing before him as my most eagerly awaited  personal moment, which I treasure, the second most poignant moment for which I long is that when all the world's children are finally safe. May it be so, soon.
