MERRY CHRISTMAS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

MERRY CHRISTMAS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Twas the month before Christmas When all through our land,

Not a Christian was praying Nor taking a stand.

Why the PC Police had taken away The reason for Christmas – no one could say.

The children were told by their schools not to sing About Shepherds and Wise Men and Angels and things. It might hurt people’s feelings, the teachers would say December 25th is just a ‘ Holiday’.

Yet the shoppers were ready with cash, checks and credit Pushing folks down to the floor just to get it! CDs from Madonna, an X BOX, an I-Pod Something was changing, something quite odd! Retailers promoted Ramadan and Kwanzaa In hopes to sell books by Franken & Fonda.

As Targets were hanging their trees upside down At Lowe’s the word Christmas – was no where to be found. At K-Mart and Staples and Penny’s and Sears You won’t hear the word Christmas; it won’t touch your ears. Inclusive, sensitive, Di-ver-si-ty Are words that were used to intimidate me.

Now Daschle, Now Darden, Now Sharpton, Wolf Blitzen On Boxer, on Rather, on Kerry, on Clinton! At the top of the Senate, there arose such a clatter To eliminate Jesus, in all public matter. And we spoke not a word, as they took away our faith Forbidden to speak of salvation and grace. The true Gift of Christmas was exchanged and discarded The reason for the season, stopped before it started.

So as you celebrate ‘Winter Break’ under your ‘Dream Tree’ Sipping your Starbucks, listen to me.

Choose your words carefully, choose what you say Shout MERRY CHRISTMAS, not Happy Holiday! Please, all Christians join together and wish everyone you meet MERRY CHRISTMAS Christ is The Reason’ for the Christ-mas Season! Continue reading

The 2016 ProLifeCorner is Now Ready

The 2016 ProLifeCorner is Now Ready 12-19-2015 – By Editor – We are pleased to announce we just finished editing the 2016 ProLifeCorner.  As many of you know the ProLifeCorner consists of bulletins inserts that present a pro-life message or thought. These inserts are intended to be used in church bulletins; however, they can also be used on your Facebook page or blog. Some people will paste some of these messages at the end of an e-mail or in a note to a friend or loved one.

When we started the ProLifeCorner back in 1989 we never dreamed that 27 years later we would be addressing the same problems and our warnings against euthanasia in America, unfortunately, are becoming more true everyday. Continue reading

ProLifeCorner-  Rockford Illinois- Rockford Pro-life Initiative-   At Barney 300xRockford’s abortion clinic whenever Barney Baxter arrived we knew it was time to pray.  Barney was a man of unshakable faith in the power of prayer and his love for anyone facing suffering was an inspiration to everyone who knew him.

Barney passed away on December 16th. He will be tremendously missed by his loving family and friends.

Even in his later years, as he faced health issues, Barney would continue to stand in public to pray and witness for an end to abortion.  Words cannot describe how he would encourage and build up other Christians in our common mission to share the love of Jesus with those in need.

Barney was a faithful Christian and family man who served his country and Church. He is also a dear friend and obedient servant to Christ and courageous defender of unborn children.  Barney will be greatly missed…….”well done good and faithful servant.” Continue reading

May God bless Mark and his family with many more years of their courage and wisdom. Continue reading

Christmas Is Coming a Gift Suggestion for You

Christmas Is Coming a Gift Suggestion for You

 ProLifeCorner- Annarae- The excitement and anticipation of Christmas is in the air. As we prepare to celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ,  let us try to remember that it is His birthday that we are celebrating. Part of that tradition is the exchange or giving of gifts to loved ones. I would like to suggest a book for your family JPS 150xand friends. This book was written by a dear friend of ours, John Shippert. John was a public school teacher for over 30 years.  He is the father of 10 children. John would often make up exciting stories to tell his children at bedtime. Recently he adapted one of these many stories into an exciting fantasy adventure entitled “Forest of the Witches”. This book is loaded with moral values which we can all benefit from today.

There is still time to order this book in Kindle form for $2.99 and it can also be ordered in paperback form for only $8.99.

This book is loaded with adventure and excitement and has received high praise from early teens on up to those of us in our 70s.

Consider ordering your copy today. Continue reading

Advent Preparation 2015

ProLifeCorner-   Today begins the second week of Advent. Many of us have seen the wreath with four candles that appear in many churches and homes across our country.

Advent is the preparatory season   leading   up   to Christmas.  Themes  of readiness, watchfulness and anticipation mark these  days  of penitential and austere preparation before   Christmas. The purpose of Advent is to prepare us for a deep, personal, life-changing, world-shaking encounter with Christ this Christmas. Continue reading

Prayer Vigil / Public Witness this Sunday

Prayer Vigil / Public Witness this Sunday

Please join your Christian neighbors this Sunday as we witness to life and pray for an end to abortion.

State 300xProLifeCorner-    Rockford IL.-  This Sunday Dec 6th 2-3 PM, prayer and public witness holding pro-life signs at the corner of State and Alpine.  Please join us in prayer, as we petition our Lord to bring about an end to abortion and euthanasia.

Jesus told them, “For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.”  Matthew 18:20

We will hold pro-life signs, pray, and stand as a sign of hope against the cruelty and despair of the culture of death.

“The fight for the right to life is not the cause of a special few, but the cause of every man, woman and child who cares not only about his or her own family, but the whole family of man.” – Dr. Mildred Jefferson

“What an irony that a society confronted with plastic bags filled with the remains of aborted babies should be more concerned about the problem of recycling the plastic”…

Senate Votes to De-Fund Planned Parenthood

Senate Votes to De-Fund Planned Parenthood – 12-3-2015 – by Editor – The US Senate finally voted to de-fund Planned Parenthood.  Now the bill goes to the House and then to the President.  The President, being the most pro-abortion politician we’ve ever seen, will undoubtedly veto this bill.  However, as you read the article from LifeNews you will see that this legislation could be passed if pro-life people were elected to office.  A pro-life President could sign such a bill and save thousands of unborn babies.  We must continue to work and pray to end the travesty and horror of abortion in our nation and in the world.
