Paulo was not a young man, this fact made him very angry. His girl-friend was pregnant and despite this baby being Paulo’s only chance of father hood, she had decided on an abortion. “It’s her body” she had said. ‘But it’s my child’ he screamed inside, ‘maybe my only child and it was forming right now’. What ever Paulo said he could not change the mind of the girl. She was very young it was a fling Paulo had regretted but he would have stood by her and the child.
A phone call that evening tore him into a rage. The girlfriend had done the deed, and gloated over it, it was rid of as if it were a cancer. He thought of all he would do to the girl, perhaps even to end her life. But God was still with Paulo and as he prayed, and his anger withdrew from him. He reasoned with God that he should let God deal with the girlfriend, and as for him, in his calmness he realised that his child was with the Lord and would be waiting for him when he to went to heaven, which may not be that far away now. With that in mind Paulo slept peacefully.
