Is This Whitney Houston Song Pro-Life? I Think So

It sure seems to me like this Whitney Houston song has a pro-life message. I saw this piece posted on Jill Stanek’s blog today, and I was touched. Whitney writes: “How could I throw away a miracle?…When love grows inside you, there’s a miracle in store for you.”

I wish someone could have reached this talented woman and encouraged her to embrace life before it was too late.

Lyrics from her song Miracle which is from her third album “I’m Your Baby Tonight”:

How could I throw away a miracle?

How could I face another day?

It’s all of my doing

I made a choice

And, today, I pay

My heart is full of pain

 

How could you understand the way I feel?

How could you relate to so much pain?

Seems as though nothing

Can comfort me

So, today, I pray

That someone should listen

 

For nothing should matter

Not when love grows inside you

The choice is yours

There’s a miracle in store

Nothing should matter

Not when love grows inside you

A voice of love is crying out

“Don’t throw love away”

There’s a miracle in store

 

How could I let go of a miracle?

Nothing could ever take its place

Thought I was looking

Out for myself

Now, it seems the pain

Is all that I have gained

 

I wonder if I could be your miracle

I wonder if I could spare you pain

Seems as though nothing

Will comfort me

Lord, ‘less, today, I pray

That you should come listen

 

Don’t ever throw away your miracle

Don’t let it slip away

So nothing should matter

 

No, nothing should matter

Not when love grows inside you

The choice is yours

There’s a miracle in store

No, nothing should matter

Not when love grows inside you

A voice of love is crying out

“Don’t throw love away”

There’s a miracle in store…for you

About Kathy Schneeman

After graduating from The College of St. Thomas, I taught at Nativity in St. Paul until our oldest was just about born in the classroom (What a great lesson on life that would have been for my students!) I then became a stay-at-home-mom while teaching religious education classes and working very part time at UST. Recently, I served as the Archdiocese's Life Coordinator in the Office for Marriage, Family and Life until twins arrived (I was almost 43!) When I have a few minutes of quiet time, I like to run, eat chocolates, scones and Mexican food (that's why I run), read, and have a beverage with my husband at night. We have a whopping nine kids (yes...same husband and same wife; we get that question a lot!) and we attend St. Joseph's in West St. Paul--where we first met when we were in grade school.
