We Do Have Hope In A Fallen World

We Do Have Hope In A Fallen World

ProLifeCorner-   The below testimony has been shared with us by a mother who placed more faith in God and love than in the fear and selfishness of the world.  We believe it is people like her who Jesus was speaking of when He said, “you are the light of the world.”

My name is Anne,

jesus-blessing-pregnant-woman-250x-150dpiI am a 45 year old mother of a perfectly healthy and precious newborn named Amber Rose Faith. The “Faith” part was added as our pregnancy progressed because it took a lot of it! And here is our story…

I was newly married after experiencing the deaths my mom, my sister and best friend to cancer all within two years Eleven months later my husband and I found out we were “expecting”.

Our Lord works in mysterious ways. Upon our suspicion, I went to my primary care doctor. He kept repeating the same phrase, “this is bad! So bad Anne.”   I have a heart and spinal condition requiring medications that are dangerous if taken during pregnancy. I was already eight weeks along and Amber had been exposed to these meds for that long. My doctor explained that for these reasons and the advance age that I ‘needed’ to abort.  Amber  would likely be born with Down’s syndrome as well as a slew of other birth defects and learning disabilities. I explained to the doctor that regardless of his warnings I wanted to keep my baby. He actually became angry. Continue reading

Ingenuity, imagination, and Effort in the Spiritual Life

“For the children of this world are more prudent in dealing with their own generation than are the children of light.”

A few years ago, a college student was convicted of smuggling several thousand pounds of marijuana into the country. The student had created quite an effective system for procuring and distributing the marijuana. The judge who heard the case did not sentence the student to jail — instead, the student was sentenced to set up and run a hospice for AIDS patients. The logic? The city needed the hospice, and the convicted smuggler had the organizational and business savvy to make it happen. Continue reading

Today I’m going to pretend

I have no other work but

To listen to your voice, O LORD

Your voice will come to me

Carried on the wind of peace,

That’s how I’ll know it’s You

Peace, beyond common understanding,

Will flood my being, as I do daily work

The work that I must do to comfort

My body: for food, for shelter, for identity

Among men: what I wear, what I drive,

Where I live – these are facts that interest

The people in the natural world, but where

I truly LIVE, in the Spirit with You, I am

Free, without cares, like a child You are

In charge and caring for me completely.

Amen

Mark Pickup is an Inspiration to Us All

Mark Pickup is an Inspiration to Us All

ProLifeCorner- Frank Joseph Munda- There’s an old saying, ”I felt sorry for LaRee n Markmyself because I had no shoes, until I saw a man who had no feet.” It is a rare individual who has not been touched by some form of physical, or mental pain. It seems some of us suffer a little more than others. Mark Pickup and his wife LaRee of HumanLifeMatters have certainly suffered much physical and mental pain over the years. Losing his mobility to MS was a tragedy that would have destroyed a lesser man than Mark. He has carried this cross in a Christ like fashion. His faith in Christ, his love of life has helped him overcome any and all obstacles in his life. They, Mark and LaRee are an example to all of us. Continue reading

“And the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us”- John 1:14

As soon as the Holy Spirit overshadowed the womb of the Virgin Mother, God immediately became one of  the human family. In like manner when a child is conceived, he becomes one of us. This little person now dwells among us. So that our nation may recognize this truth…
