A Bone to Pick
We're enjoying a much needed vacation, and this morning I happened to turn on the morning news and caught the breaking news of the "mislabeled" graves at our nation's Arlington Cemetery. A Legislator from Missouri was speaking about the "heartbreak" of thousands of American families because of not knowing the true place of their loved-one's burial.
My gut jerked with sadness ~ not only over the facts of this story, but also over the hypocrisy of the way we treat the living. Those buried bones will never live again (at least in this life), but there are MILLIONS of Americans still living and breathing every day with the confusion of not knowing their own identity. Adult adoptee's live every day with their own original birth certificate's sealed in a fraudulent ("amended") grave.
Ezekiel 37:12 in the Old Testament says this: "I will breathe upon your graves and cause you to come up, and bring you into the land." This is God's promise I am standing on for all 6 million adult adoptees in our nation.
Legislator's: Please think about the living bones of adopted individuals as you consider the tragedy of mistaken and fraudulent places of rest. Pass laws which will give truth and rest to the living as well.
