Choose LIFE!

Today is Sanctity of Life Sunday - for 20+ years our family has marched in the Arkansas Right to Life March.  When we moved here - it was too far to drive to Little Rock in time for the march, so - we have driven to Memphis the past two years.  It has been a disappointment - a bit of a let down, I have to admit.  This year, our church led in starting an annual Right to Life march right here in our hometown, for our county and eventually we hope for Northeast Arkansas.

We had a pretty good turn-out for the first.  It was wonderful!  We so appreciate our people who took it to heart and came, our men who helped load, set-up and re-load the sound equipment.  We are excited to see what God is going to do in the years to come.  What a privilege to be allowed to be involved in the beginning!

I wish I had a picture to show you!  One of our sweet young couples who are expecting, created a poster with the ultrasound of their new baby - it was precious and PERFECT!

God, the life giver, says in Deuteronomy 30:19, "I call to record against you this day, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore, choose life - that you and your children may live."

Folks, get out of your recliners...get out of your comfort zone...take a stand and choose LIFE!

I'm so glad that you guys started your own. Sounds like you had a good turnout for the first time. It's always encouraging to get together with fellow-believers and stand up for what is right!
