What's this, no Sanctity of Human Life posts? as I perused past January blog posts
Not a one. They have to be somewhere, because I've been pro-life since my senior year in high school when my English teacher gave me an unfair grade on my term paper because she disagreed with my findings on abortion.
None to be found, probably in a different category, but you deserve something fresh!! 🙂
I'm pro-life!! How's that!!
Roe v. Wade is 41 years old and has seen better days as this Christianity Today article explains. It is lengthy, but well worth the time as we stand up to take the challenge of making murder of the unborn illegal.
Why we need to stop saying 'As Long as It's Healthy'. How about saying instead 'as long as he or she gets here?'
Ok, so I found a post that originally was written with the names changed. A shining example of sanctity of human life.
In honor of my sister-in-law Judy and my nephew Cody.
is my sister-in-law and the mother of Cody with Down's Syndrome. You don't see many children or adults around anymore with that particular disability because our culture decided they would be of no benefit to society...so they are aborted thanks to early detection with ultrasound to see if my baby will be perfect. A recent statistic is 90% of Down's babies are aborted.
If it has a defect of ANY kind I can then decide I don't want to deal with a disability my child may have and get rid of it. Can you tell I feel very strongly about this subject...I hate abortion.
If there was ever a mother I wanted to emulate it is
Judy. I haven't been able to spend as much time with her as I would like, but nine years ago
Judy and Cody and myself and Lauren spent several days together at Disneyland in California.
Judy never skipped a beat in her care and love for her
son Charlie(fictious na
Cody. She was the epitome of peace, patience, kindness, long-suffering...ALL the fruit of the Spirit and more. I know that without Christ she would not have the strength to care for her son, who is now a fun-loving teenager and ready to graduate from high school. She has sought out the best help, education, nutrition and care for
Cody always making sure his needs are met. She is an example to me of what it truly means to die to self.
Judy is an authentic and transparent friend and dear sister-in-law, who I am privileged to know and love. I never have to look far when I want to see what Jesus looks like.
One of my heroes.
I have been to a lot of funerals, hearing how wonderful the deceased person was. Hearing their service to Jesus, and their love of family and friends. I've often wondered why we wait until our loved ones are gone to express to them what they mean to us? I do not write this heroes series to elevate them, but to encourage them to press on in what they are doing and to say thank you for being an example to me and everyone else.
These pictures are priceless. Images of followers of Jesus I am honored to know.
Fall Refocus is our Great Commission Women's fall retreat that I usually attend, but it fell on the weekend of our week long missions conference...and Lauren and Rob's birthday.
This one needs no explanation!!
The next two were taken at our Second Saturday meetings, held...well every second Saturday of the month.
Katie...love her...she's having 3 cups of coffee!!
Becky, fearless leader of Great Commission Women. I'm sure she would appreciate our continued prayers as she recovers from a freak accident. She is God's woman for the job of leading the women of Lafayette Alliance.
And finally, a copy of the workbook we are using in our women's Bible studies, held during Sunday School, Wednesday morning and Thursday night. Studying Sweeter than Chocolate--Psalm 119. One of our attendees is writing the hebrew alphabet, part of the study.
