By: Jodi Miller - February 14, 2004
You are love
You are the creator of love

Abortion - The Layers of Grief
By: Jodi Miller 1/17/2013
Recently I was preparing for a speaking engagement on abortions consequences when I began to feel a new layer of grief surfacing. It didn’t make any sense at first. Nothing had changed. Why this new pain? I was forgiven. I was at peace. I was rid of all the guilt and shame. Was this simply a distraction to keep me from the task at hand?
I prayed seeking understanding to these painful emotions. God in His infinite ways answered all my questions and then some. People often say that God only gives us what we can handle. I prefer to say, “If He brings us to it than He will see us through it.” In any case, what I was feeling was real! It was a new layer of awareness of the loss of my three children; my only children. But God, I thought I already mourned their loss. Yes, you have. You’ve mourned the loss of your babies. You mourned their lost childhood and adolescence. What you are experiencing is the loss of their adulthood and the family you would have had. You’re mourning the loss of the grandchildren that will never be. It all seemed so clear. Especially with all the health issues my husband struggles with. I thought of how lonely I feel at times and wondering how different things might be if our children were here. They would now be 31, 29 and 27 yrs old. Is it possible that I’m that old? The time has gone by way to fast.
This new layer of sorrow was not about taking back all the pain of the past. It was simply an awareness of just how deep the pain of abortion goes. I find myself thankful that God alone knows how much we can handle at any given time. His love brought me to the pain, than His grace comforts and heals me. He then allows me to share it with others.
You may have different layers that have been revealed or yet to be revealed. But remember we have a God who simply wants the best for us. If you find yourself feeling a new layer of pain – don’t run from it, instead run to God; seek His will for you then, let Him heal your pain just as He promises. “I will give you back your health and heal your wounds”, says the LORD.” Jeremiah 30:17

The Shedding of Innocent Blood
By: Jodi L. Miller- December 16, 2012
On Friday December 14, 2012, evil exposed its ugly realities in Newtown, Connecticut where a twenty year old man went on a killing spree. Killing his mother first then went to Sandy Hook elementary school where he continued the killing of twenty-six more innocent people, twenty of them children ages five-ten years of age and six other innocent adults, before taking his own life. Utter evil! No matter how we try to understand there is no making sense of it all. Innocence taken away for all those affected by it, the eyewitnesses, the first responders, the funeral directors and those who are left to clean up this madness and horrific carnage. Outrage, yes!! Sorrow, yes!! Fear of the next evil plan being conjured up waiting for the time to unload and prey on the innocent. Who needs terrorist from foreign lands when we do such a great job in our homeland? I try to wrap my mind around the evil that takes place thousands of times each and every day. The evil, horrific carnage of abortion, the innocent unprotected babies who are literally torn apart piece by piece in the sacred place where their lives begin – there mother’s womb. Their little bodies tossed in a heap in some container. Disposed of where? God only knows. President Obama shared his thoughts and emotions Friday as he spoke to our Nation. He too was trying to make sense of the horrific deaths of the innocent. He spoke of the young innocent lives that were taken, all the birthdays, graduations, weddings etc. that they would miss. The sadness is overwhelming. That’s when I felt the weight of all the innocent babies being aborted each day. What about the birthday they will never know? What about their first day at kindergarten? What about their graduations, weddings and the ability to bring their own children into this world? All gone never to exist; yet they do. Heaven is filled with all their souls. Our government, our Supreme Court Justices, the Physicians performing the abortions, those referring women to abortion clinics etc, are all cover by the blood of the thousands of innocent lives taken each day. My heart aches for all those affected by Friday’s evil act in Newtown, Connecticut. My heart bleeds for all the innocent babies taken each day at the hands physicians who apparently have no value of human life and have been blinded to the reality of what they choose to do. My heart hurts for the many women/men who walk about in silent pain when they realize the impact of what they chose to do by taking the life of their own little one. They didn’t protect the life within – they chose to put themselves first. We can try to excuse the choice of abortion – rape, incest etc. but in the end murder is murder. The act of abortion is taking of innocent life just like the elementary school in Sandy Hook. Those children/adults were blindsided by an evil act. Thousands of babies are blindsided each day by the abortionist’s evil tools. There are the victims families left behind to deal with the pain and after math that will forever follow them. There is counseling, churches and prayer vigils to help console those reeling in pain from the murder of these innocent children/adults as there should be. Those reeling from the pain, guilt, shame, sorrow, regret and suicidal thoughts because of their choice to abort their own child, please know there is help for you too. You no longer need to hide or walk alone in your silent pain. Here are some resources available to you, www.rachelsvineyard.org , www.silentnomoreawareness.org and www.Hisgraceheals.com .
People it’s time we look evil in the face and say NO MORE! Begin by embracing the truth. We need to get back to the basics by putting God first – not last or only when we need/want something. Bring back the Word of God. Follow His commandments. Bring back moral living. Then and only then will we begin to see the changes in the decay of evil living.

On sunday October 28, 2012 we were blessed to attend the premiere of "the Voice of John".
"This documentary will provide a forensic view into the Pro-Life movement from 1973 to date. RSP will show America the real truth regarding abortion and euthanasia from the perspective of those who know it best; the doctors, nurses, clergy, scientists and politicians who are responsible for this ruling as well as those who oppose it. You will hear testimony from those who regret their abortion, abortion survivors, former abortionists and even those who were responsible for the testimony given to the U.S. Supreme Court before the court ruled on the landmark decision of Roe vs. Wade." copied from www.thevoiceofjohn.org
This documentary was filled with straight forward information. I was hesitant at first fearing the images that might be in the film however, that was not issue. It conveyed their compassion for those suffering from post abortion syndrome knowing that healing from an abortion choice is just as important as ceasing the travisty of abortion.
Truly - this is a must see for all! Filled with TRUTH! What did Jesus say? You will know the truth and the truth will set you free!
Voice of John - "VOJ will save lives, one heart-beat at a time"
"Hisgraceheals seeks to - restore the abortive persons shattered heart so it can beat with new life"
- Prasie be to God!

This morning as I pulled open the shade these bleeding hearts caught my eye. How beautiful and full of color I thought as I walked away. Suddenly it was as if God said, “Stop and take another look. Yes indeed they are beautiful for I made them. Look at how their hearts are split that’s why they are called bleeding hearts.” Then I thought about all the broken hearts that have been torn in two by abortion. The women who were told abortion was not only their right but it would fix “the problem”. When they agreed and followed through with the abortion their hearts were split in two and left to hang alone just like these bleeding hearts all on one limb. No one to care for them. No one to catch their tears or so they thought. Then in God’s undeniable way some of those bleeding hearts began to heal – they found out that God had been with them all along and caught every tear. Slowly, they began to trust, and eventually found love again. Their bleeding hearts no longer shed regretful tears but they overflow with peace and joy. They now have a strong desire to share God’s amazing grace with the other post abortive bleeding hearts. They no longer hang alone bleeding on that branch but now that branch has become the healing vine connecting each one of those bleeding hearts.

On August 10, 2012 we were invited to attend a ballet in York, PA. We have never seen a ballet however, my sister - Joy who was one of the hostesses couldn't recommend it enough. The ballet company is Yahweh Ballet - The Life Ballet. There slogan is that they dance for all the children who were never given the chance to dance. They interpet the story of one woman's abortion journey. We felt like they had read our book and then put it to an amazing, loving and compassionate dance. They deal with the entire aspect of the abortion. The drama of it all and then the ultimate healing that comes from God alone was compelling. I don't think there was a dry eye in the house. We now can not recommend it enough. This is not for just the post-abortive woman. The ballet is something that everyone can walk away with something special because abortion like it or not affects all of us in some fashion. May God bless the Yahweh Company and may thier ministry reach many. Please check out thier website: www.thelifeballet.org

Did you ever feel like life is going no where fast? You have all the plans figured out and suddenly every thing comes to a halt, what is one to do? We find ourselves in that exact place right now. Our house is all packed and ready to go then our move comes to a screeching halt. Why God? Why? Now we find ourselves saying okay God - we will wait. We've learned over the years that it's best for us to wait until the green light comes on. There is always a reason for God's change of direction in our lives. Will we always know why - no - not always. That's where trust comes in. Trusting God knows best. That is what happened for us a little over 11yrs ago when we thought we were going to Hershey Park for the weekend but God's plan was for us to face our deepest, darkest and most painful secret - our three abortions. Instead of Hershey Park we attended a Rachel's Vineyard Retreat for post-abortive women and men. God stopped us in our tracks to begin the healing of our hearts, minds and souls. As the healing continued our marriage and faith in God grew stronger. We've learned that even if life feels like "three steps forward - two steps back" that we've actually taken one step of progress. If you suffer from that deep, dark, painful secret of an abortion - please know there is help, hope and healing. God will make a way where there seems to be know way. Broken trust begins to heal at the foot of the cross.
