I do admit that I can sense the desperation of my friends, who think that we are all horrible racists, homophobes and on and on... I am not! I wonder when the things that are morally wrong became the right in this country?!? Does giving them license to practice sinfulness make it right and honorable? And how did taking life become something we can turn a blind eye to? I feel more than outrage and long to write a loving response to these people... friends, but it seems that we long for the other side to see, and there is no openness one to the other. I know that LOVE can bridge the gap, and is that being silent and holding them up on prayer?
I do ask Christ to "help me see" how to share those Truths with love and respect for all beloved by our Lord! He loves us and died for us so that we may face the hardships of sticking to what it right no matter what! This heaviness in my heart longs to reach out and embrace with unconditional love those that are weeping and worried and sick about our country! I am so puzzled at the blatant disrespect for human life, which I cannot get past. Yes, I know that change is a long time coming and will not be instantaneous, yet if only partial birth abortion can be banned, there will be some lives saved from the horrific end! Each life matters!
Jesus, how I love you and long to serve you better with each new day! Does that include trying to share your Truth without hesitation and with LOVE? Yes! How do we know that what we share it the Truth? By listening to Jesus in The Word and in The Church! Come Holy Spirit guide my words and "Lord, please let me see." May I die to self so that you may live in me! Jesus, we trust in you. Amen and Hallelujah
So many prayers for the new life in our families! Two showers this weekend - one for my niece with her first child, whose mother is my sister Mary in heaven, and one for a dear niece on the Verly side with her first child! Nothing can come close to LIFE! It is my all in all! Jesus, we trust in you. Bless-bless, Barbara Luke
Gazing upon their new sister!
Waited and prayed and kept busy to help the time pass... Therese with her first sister!
Super moon over the gateway arch in St Louis... I was just there, but missed the arch. It was a very nice city to us in a difficult time! Thank you!
Another good one for today.
