Those living far away fear your wonders; where morning dawns and evening fades you call forth songs of joy. Psalm 65:8
Yes, flowers are really beginning to bloom on Long Island. Spring is here and the days are warmer.We know it always comes but when its cold for months, we can forget how nice the warm breeze feels.
The past month has been a whirlwind of good activities. Last Saturday, my friends and I went to Manhattan for a Focus on the Family Rally in Times Square. The area was just as ugly and vile as I remembered it.
As we praised Him, the mercy and grace of God became real to me. Even the vilest sinner he extends his hand of love! The Rally was to encourage New Yorkers for Life. We were blessed and we felt loved! We rarely see Christian Leaders in New York!
Our laws for abortion are the worst in the country. Today, Governor Kemp of Georgia signed the LIFE Act, banning abortion after 6 weeks. This is a landmark decision, and all of the pro-life movement is saying, this is an improvement! Life begins at conception, so we have some ground to conquer, but thankfully Governor Kemp has more sense than others.
WE can praise God even when the world around us is falling into great trouble, because we know He is the Redeemer. Anyone who turns to Him will be made whole if repentence is real in their lives. Jesus, who endured all sickness and shame for us, knows how to bring anyone to life.
He offers freedom from anxiety, fear and shame. He gives in abundance, and then He gives again! There is no end of His blessings, and He loves to give to overflowing. As a river flowing after the rain, His goodness will pour out on all who obey and follow Him.
Saturday we are having a big event at my home. A Yard /Bake Sale and a raffle. WE are raising money for the Breath of Life Maternity Home. You may not recognize this name because it doesn't exsist except in our hearts. Young women come to Pregnancy Centers on Long Island who are over 21. Our county doesn't house any pregnant woman over the age of 21.
Where can they go? A shelter? Is that a good place for a pregnant girl?
