There is a lot of discussion in state legislatures recently concerning
prenatal and new born babies. I believe all life is precious. It is
important to me to act on my beliefs. Scripture tells us “Before I formed
you in the womb I knew you.” Jeremiah 1:5 and “Children are a gift from
God.” Psalm 127:3.
Maryland has a program called Safe Haven. This program allows new moms the option to give their newborns to a participating hospital, police or responsible adult within 10 days of birth. The mom says this is a “Safe Haven Baby” and no questions will be asked. I have a Safe Haven sign on the front of our home. I would accept the new-born and then take it to the proper authorities explaining that this is a Safe Haven Baby. It is my hope that this program may prevent a newborn from abandonment. You can find out if there is a program like this where live. Maryland’s program is under the department of health and human resources.
I have created a prayer for new life. I have printed out copies of this prayer and shared it and the Safe Haven information with my church family.
I hope you will join me in praying for new life. Thank you and God Bless,
Maker, Creator, Father of Life.
Please hear my plea.
Protect the precious newborns and babies-to-be.
Let life unfold as it is meant to be.
In Jesus name, I pray to Thee.
Today I will share some ideas for showing your love and remind you how very much God loves You! Truly!
“Lift up your face to God.” Job 22:26 Now Job had a quite a face to lift up to
God. It was red, festered, teary, grieving. He had seen sorrow and he got the tee shirt of misery. Yep! His friends were commiserating about his woes. Almighty God heard their moaning and he stepped in to ask Job a question and it was a doozy! Ready, Where were you when I made the world? Kind of puts things in perspective doesn’t it? Wow! I have been sharing how much I enjoy my writing books. The last two scripture quotations are written near the photo of me and my dad.
It was our last dance together. “Because you are precious in my eyes and honored and I love you.” Isaiah 43: 4. I prayed for my dad. I knew he was in God’s hands and I knew he was going where there would be no more sickness and his bride was waiting with God to welcome him. “Love never ends.” 1 Corinthians 13:8 I hope these thoughts warm your heart this cold January day.
I have also begun to create my valentines and some pretties for Valentines Day. Patrick took close up photos so you could see what I have been doing.
You know I enjoy crafting with old greeting cards, well I cut out a heart
pattern using the back of a card. Then placing the pattern on the front
I cut out hearts. I made a dozen different cards with glue, paper scissors and the fronts and backs of old cards. Joy!
I also made hearts using cross stitch, another was made with buttons and felt and the last was a hand stitched into a crazy patch heart. I started with scraps of fabric and placed the first piece in the center. I continued to add scraps until the piece was the size I wanted. Do not cut this pieced piece of cloth. Make a pattern a heart and use it to draw on top of the pieced fabric. Now embellish with embroidery, lace and buttons. Mine even has a blue bird pin. Now you cut out the heart shape and cut another piece of fabric using the heart for a pattern. I blanket stitched the two heart pieces wrong sides together. You can then and finished by sewing a pin or a ribbon on the back.
Lastly, I am using a grape vine wreath to create a special anniversary piece
which I will hang on the front door. I promise to take a picture when it is
Oh, here is the web site information for 58,000 e books I was talking about.
Blessings and warm hearts,
“In the beginning was the word and the word was with God and the word was God.” John 1:1
God was – God is – God always will be.
“All things were made by Him; and without Him was not anything made that was made.” John 1:3
The bible begins with God. “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.” Genesis 1:1
What was the very first thing God made? Do you know? It was light. “And God said let there be light :and there was light.” Genesis 1:3
All life depends on light. Before He made anything else, God made light.
“And God saw the light that it was good.” Genesis 1:4 In the first Epistle of John we read: “God is light and in Him is not darkness at all.” 1 John 1:5
All we need for life God created. He knew our needs. He was thinking of us when by His power the very first glorious light burst forth from the mind of God.
We have free will. God will not force us to do anything. We must turn to the light ourselves. In the light is warmth, life and love – great love – boundless,
limitless love – God’s wonderful love! Wonder! Joy!
“Come let us walk in the light of the lord!” Isaiah 2:5
