Sanctity of Life

In honor of Sanctity of Life Sunday (January 24th), our family helped set up the display of over 130 white crosses on the front lawn of our church.

Theses crosses represent children lost to abortion.

Since 1973, it is estimated that over 46 million abortions have been performed in the U.S.

3,700 abortions happen each day!!!

Truly unbelievable--isn't it!!!!

You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed.
Psalms 139:16

Those are crazy numbers...so sad. I am starting some training to be a volunteer counselor at a crisis pregnancy center. It should be interesting. It's somthing I've wanted to do ever since we adopted Soph almost 3 yrs ago. I'll let you know how it goes. Training doesn't start until March.

Lord have mercy on us all. So many beautiful lives taken away, but what joy that they are in the arms of their creator!

Love your blog! We have six children, mostly grown. Thank you for drawing attention to the Sanctity of Life. You can help cover the unborn with prayer by posting this prayer request to your blog's side panel.
