Life Chain...


Our son Joe's birthday is coming up this month. It was fitting, since he is working with the Texas Right to Life and the Life Chain in October, to show this short video which their good friend Melissa has put together. It's a labor lf love.

It's very clear, and a voice for all of those babies who have no voice.

It's short, so turn your volume up and listen for a minute. You will be touched.

Happy Birthday Joe... keep pursuing the desires of your heart, God has placed them there.


Love, 

Mom & Dad

Good morning Sonja! Voices....oh yes! To allow for them to develop is part of my job as a language teacher. And the job of these believers is to allow these voices to be born. BLESSINGS! Anita

Awesome..thanks for sharing! I am so glad my grandson's mom allowed him to be born, so we can now enjoy that little adopted one! I thank God for her decision each time I hold him!

The above "Unknown" was from son Joe -- didn't know how to leave my name!

Good morning dearest Sonja and sister in the Lord! Thank you for coming to visit last night! I am having to make some adjustments in my schedule since I am back to "full-time" work (though it is supposed to be part-time). The way I blog (I visit every comment and LOVE DOING SO) and the photos I gather and music I choose is very time-consuming. I also took a poetry class in the summer that changed my vision about my writing goals and honestly, I need to be writing more in solitude, and learning the craft of poetry is difficult. You know how God's spirit "speaks" to you about doing something particular? Well for me, it's all been in the arts and writing is what I believe may be my final frontier; I also believe that my past experiences in teaching and performing arts could be a way for me to deliver my words, but for now, I have to learn to craft my words in a more effective way.

WOW, that's a lot of information for a Sunday morning! BE WELL and God bless! Anita

This is just wonderful and I so agree with speaking for those who cannot speak for themselves...the innocent unborn.
Happy Birthday to your dear son!

What a wonderful son, and what a wonderful cause he has dedicated himself to.

I am reminded that Jesus loved the children - and I know this includes the ones waiting to be born.

GOD BLESS!

Happy birthday Joe! What an impactful video this was. I will mark my calendar and I will pray.

I was doing my OB/GYN rotation in nursing school in 1973 when Roe v Wade was made law. I witnessed abortions as a young nursing student. It was horrible.

There are many women who have had abortions years ago. There is forgiveness and healing.

Love you sis,
Debbie

when people ask me what political party
i belong to, i say, "the pro-life party."
there is very little else i feel that strongly
about.

we have some sweet young friends who
started a ministry in africa for the babies
they throw away. it's call "babysafe,"
and young women are encouraged to
leave their babie there with no questions
asked. then the babies are adopted
out. isn't this a wonderful answer to
a terrible problem?

Debbie said...

I'm sorry that I missed this one! I am going to click the video to see this. God bless ALL who work for the babies who have no voice!!

Debbie said...

Fantastic video. I didn't know about this and now will check that site to see if there is one organized near me.
