My mother gave birth to me during this month. That means I was conceived some time in May. Since May, I was a growing baby. And I grew miraculously until I was mature enough to come out into this world and breathe on my own. I was fully functional long before that but just not big enough yet. And I was born on February 16th. And this birth month I am not as excited to celebrate my birthday or birth month as is my custom. I am sorrowful for the babies who are now able to be murdered because of some heartless, evil politicians and the heartless, evil people who elected them and approved and even cheered this heartless, evil decision. It was a dark day in our country and if people do not rise up and demand it be overturned and at the least isolated, we will all face the judgment of God. And that is a matter of national security as surely as loose borders are. And this is the deep mournful concern on my heart during this month I used to celebrate. How can I celebrate life when my American brothers and sisters are celebrating death? How can any of us?💔
I am responsible today for my thoughts, words and actions.
I can make decisions which honor God or hurt His kingdom.
I am responsible for those decisions.
I will be careful then to make the right decisions today.
I choose to make good decisions.
And I can and will humbly pray for help from God to do this.
And He will help because He loves me and He is more than strong enough to help.
So today His peace and joy will envelop me.
I will be His loving light to honor Him.❤
Satan is behind every abortion and every other form of murder and destruction. And those who support these evil acts are worshipping Satan who wants to kill all God’s created souls and are against God. Every life is invaluable. I was deeply saddened by the bill that passed to kill babies, even fully developed babies. And women applauded! How against a woman’s very nature to kill our babies! This is sheer evil and there will be punishment/judgment from God for this horrific decision. People applaud now but this they will not applaud when they face judgment. And the people of this country voted these evil murderers who passed this lawful abortion bill into office! Horrific! This needs to be overturned. Immediately if not sooner. We need to speak up to our politicians and representatives so the same thing is not passed in our states. We must not let this become a trend of evil. And we will see what happens to New York for such vilification for the murder of precious souls. We must speak up to our representatives and we must pray and fast. This is what we need to do. Every American who cares about God needs to and must do this. ❤

I ponder life, with its brevity and pain.
I ponder life, with its glory and triumph.
I ponder life, and how precious every soul is
How connected we are in our dependence and makeup
Our chemistry and design, our breath in and out.
I ponder life and our connectedness, up close
And I see no difference between us, none.
My life and your life, no matter the shell or mask,
Share the same oxygen, need the same nutrients
I ponder life in its base form, I see it.
Do you? If you do, we share that vision.
We share even the knowledge that we matter.
Every life has value, preciousness to God.
We share a Creator. I ponder life.
And you are beautiful to me, I am beautiful too.
And no matter your views,you are precious.
Don’t let evil hate divide us as it is trying so hard to do
Those serving selfish greed or evil hatred or ego.
Let us know better about life and its tenderness.
Let me love you and you love me. Join my hand.
Declare that we pondered life and decided to keep it
For it is designed to be kept and appreciated.
And united we are standing tall and strong
And divided we choose not to be or we would fall.
I ponder life and decide it is precious, yours and mine.❤
How do I have peace and joy when things around me are screwed up? God. I pray a LOT. God is very good to me because He chooses to be. I am at His mercy and grace and I know it and He is very generous with both, along with His great generosity in loving me and saving me through Jesus Christ’s sacrifice. There is nothing I will or can do without God and with God, there is nothing I cannot do. Making peace with that change of your will and putting it under His will is my secret. I am humble, knowing full well God knows everything and I know relatively little. I cannot control anyone but my own self and even that I need help with but God can do literally anything. Knowing this and the fact that He loves me and made me on purpose for Him is incredibly liberating and empowering and just really makes me appreciative and peaceful and joyful and oh so loved. And God feels the same about you! Pretty cool, really. 😄❤
Not sure if it just my imagination, but we have been crazy busy this month. Like busier than I remember being in a long time. And here is my theory… new leadership that supports Christmas is reviving people’s love of celebrating it. And people have more jobs and justice is being served to some horrible people and people are celebrating life in America again. We want to party. That is my theory. But whatever the case may be, last year there were few Christmas parties and this year they are all over the place. And we are doing and serving more than last year because last year, my Daddy’s transition to heaven was still fresh. And although it is busy, we are having a blast and really enjoying being a part of life again and celebrating Jesus’ birthday all month long. ❤
