Speaking the Truth

We don’t like to speak the truth about evil because we’re going to hurt somebody. Let me tell you, you are going to hurt somebody, but that Somebody is God. If you would rather hurt God than your neighbor, there is something wrong with your spirituality. It’s your obligation to speak the truth and everyone can either take it or leave it. But truth must be in us. We live in such poverty of the truth today.

Isaac's Playground

I just caught wind of this site from my mother-in-law. This is a blog that a mother created when she lost her little boy. She found out while she was pregnant that her baby was very ill. He was either going to die inside of her, be stillborn, or die quickly after birth.

Instead of aborting their baby, these parents decided to keep their baby and let God's plan go. Well, the baby lived for 14 minutes and their story is here: http://sgirl79.blogspot.com.

This is an inspiring story of two parents who still, through this horrible grief, have faith in God and His greatness. I'm sure they felt a great deal of sorrow from losing their child, but they know he is in Heaven now with our Father. And that brings them comfort.

Looking at situations like this makes me count my blessings. But it also helps me to keep my faith in God, even through the tough times.

So visit and support women and men who choose LIFE.

Another great site to visit is: www.benotafraid.net.

Thank you

Awesome, thank you for the resource. I think it's important to get the message out there that people DO choose life and good can come out of it.
