Week of Prayer for Christian Unity

Today marks the beginning of the week of prayer for Christian Unity (Jan 18 – 25). This year’s theme is “Called to proclaim the mighty acts of the Lord” (1 Peter 2:9).

It is so important, especially in today’s world, to focus on what unites us rather divides us in our faith. In this way we can be a better witness to the world and work together to end the moral evils that surround us such as abortion, euthanasia, and threats to our religious liberty.

Fittingly, today is also the day we remember the contributions of Martin Luther King, Jr. He too, in his own way, fought for liberty and unity.

May this week be a catalyst to bring us together in prayer and deed as we work to bring about God’s glorious kingdom!

Book Review: Recall Abortion by Janet Morana

Recall Abortion

From the front jacket flap:

“Bad products are recalled every day: the Ford Pinto, faulty tires, dangerous prescription pills, contaminated lettuce. If a product is found to pose even a modest risk to those who use it, you can bet it will soon be pulled from the market…Unless that product is abortion.

Every abortion kills an unborn child. But more, abortion harms women-risking the health and well-being of those all too often are conned or coerced into making this terrible ‘choice.'”

My Comments:

This is a powerful book. Recall Abortion has completely seared my heart and soul with its myriad of personal testimonies and compelling evidence on how abortion not only kills an innocent unborn baby, but also seriously harms women – physically, emotionally, spiritually – in every way possible.

I honestly can’t find the words to describe how this book has touched me. I cried and ached for the women who shared their abortion experience and the suffering they have carried with them since. Pro-lifers and non-pro-lifers alike should read this book.

I give Recall Abortion five (5) stars.

This book was offered free of charge by the publisher (St. Benedict Press). I was not required to give a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

Indoor Tea Party Picnic!

So, yesterday morning my sweet little boy asked me if he could have a pajama day. We had no plans to go anywhere, so how could I refuse?! ๐Ÿ™‚ As he was playing, I decided to give him a little surprise and put together a little tea party for lunch!

All I did was throw a blanket on the floor, put the lunch down on it and told Andrew to grab a couple of books. We cuddled on the floor, read, ate and just spent a wonderful hour or so together.

Of course, no tea party is complete without cookies! I happen to have some girl scout cookies on hand, so that’s what I served. (FYI, we don’t buy girl scout cookies anymore due to their support of abortion.)

The tea party was such a little thing, and yet it made Andrew so happy! It just proves that you don’t need tons of money or do “great things” to make memories. ๐Ÿ™‚
