#LoveWins ?

The President got a bit emotional this morning over the Supreme Court’s decision to legalize homosexual unions.

I did, too.

In fact, I cried. I am absolutely brokenhearted that this nation would willingly deprive children of a mother or a father—not only deprive the children, but tell them that it is no loss.#LoveWins

Many are celebrating today that #LoveWins. But who wins when a child is willfully deprived of a mother or a father? This is only loss, and it is loss for everyone. This is something to be grieved.

#LoveWins

“What sorrow for those who say that evil is good and good is evil, that dark is light and light is dark, that bitter is sweet and sweet is bitter” (Isaiah 5:20, NLT).

With respect and compassion, I say that so-called “gay marriage” is neither gay nor marriage. It has no threads of dignity or health; it has no fabric of life; it has no cloth to cover shame. It is no garment of glory.

There are cheering crowds, yes. There is much applause, yes.

But the emperor has no clothes on.

  1. Beautifully said. Thank you for sharing this with us Tami. We too are broken hearted that it came to this decision. I felt like wearing a black veil over my head. But, we must continue to look to God and share His love with the world who so desperately need Him. We love you and all of the Myer family. S. J

    • Thank you for your comment, Susan. Chris and I both would like to hear what Dr. Conner shares tomorrow.
      We are not in despair. We have been called for such a time as this.
      The only reason we grieve this legal decision is because we love. It is always a privilege and, at its core, a joy to love. We will keep loving, and we will keep ourselves sheltered and saturated in the immense, fervent, unfailing love of God. We live to know that Love, and we live on earth to share that Love.
      The love of Jesus is the true Love that wins!
      We send our love to you, your family, and the Sunday School class.

  2. “There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death.” Proverbs 14:12
    May we be filled with compassion, speaking truth in love as these days continue to darken and we seem to stand unsupported by our leaders on such matters that effect ALL families. Rest assured that there is true JOY just over this hill. Our loving Father’s eyes are on us and He has not been taken by surprise.

  3. Thank you, Angie. Your words remind me of John 16: “You will weep and mourn while the world rejoices. But your grief will turn to joy, and no one will take away your joy.” (excerpts, NIV)

    And, yes, it is a time for compassion and for steady trust.

    And tomorrow is a time for celebrating you! Happy birthday, treasured friend!
