As we approach Mother’s Day in the U.S. and Canada this year, I find myself thinking of my mother’s unselfish concern for my sister and me. It causes me to recall my family’s first winter in Alaska when I was a very small child.

We found ourselves stranded by bad weather in our cabin for several months, as our food supply dwindled dangerously low. Wild game was also scarce because of the weather. The situation became so serious that our provisions were nearly gone except for some smoked fish, raisins, popcorn, and a little flour. My mother ground the popcorn, mixing it with flour and water to make pancakes. She fried them in fat rendered from a beaver carcass. I remember that it was not a delightful breakfast, but it kept us alive!

I will never forget my mother claiming she was not hungry and offering me her little pancake. It wasn’t until years later that I realized that good mothers like mine think nothing of sacrificing for their children.

Because I learned at an early age how mothers should act, it makes me wonder how any woman could knowingly allow her unborn child to be butchered by an abortionist. And this wonder grows even greater when I think about the large number of women who cannot have children and are desperately seeking to become adoptive mothers.

You can see why it sickens me that pro-abortion forces express such dismay at the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision upholding the partial-birth abortion ban. They loudly bemoan the fact that there are now no exceptions for women who want a partial-birth abortion for "health" reasons, which phrase has been broadly interpreted to include such factors as "mental anguish" and even financial difficulty.

I wonder how many babies have been aborted since 1973, in the U.S. alone, for "health" reasons—even babies who would have easily survived along with their mothers. How many promising lives have been snuffed out for "health" reasons since Roe v. Wade legalized "partial-birth" abortion and all its other barbarous forms?

My husband Mat’s mother, Rose (whom I have known for many years as "Mom"), was warned that she should not have another child and, in fact, that she would never be able to carry him to full term. Thank God, she did not believe the doctor and his dire predictions.

Mom is on my mind a lot lately—not just because Mother’s Day is fast approaching or the fact that we will celebrate her 91st birthday this month. I know that Mom is thankful she does not have to face this time of her life without family. If she had never given birth to Mat, she would not have been able to enjoy a little independence with us in her later years.

In the future, many mothers will spend their final years alone because they aborted the only children they ever had.

The lasting effects of abortion will not be seen in this hemisphere until the population that could bear children since abortion became legal fully ages. Then, all too many women will realize that abortion was the worst possible choice for their long-term health, as they will be forced to rely on strangers and government healthcare systems.

Let us all remember to thank our mothers for life, to thank God that He has made a way for forgiveness, and to pray for the end of abortion and its hideous effect on North America.

Walking The Narrow Gate.

"Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it. Matthew 7:13-14

They change the truth for lie

who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

Romans 1:25

With God's Power

How could one chase a thousand, And two put ten thousand to flight, Unless their Rock had sold them, And the LORD had surrendered them?

What about the Children?

imageWhen does life begin? 

Contrary to popular thought, there are a growing number of people, who believe the scientific and biblical evidence that life begins at conception. The Bible clearly shows that life begins at conception.  In Jeremiah 1:5, God speaks to Jeremiah saying, “I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb. Before you were born, I set you apart and appointed you as my spokesman to the world.”   In Psalms 139:13-16 David records his conversation with God. “You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb. Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex!  Your workmanship is marvellous- how well I know it. You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion... You saw me before I was born. Everyday of my life was recorded in your book.” Readmore

The Blessing Without Measure

image

Baby, who made your tiny hands? Who made your little feet? Who made your tiny head so soft and sweet? Baby, who made your little mouth? Who made your tiny eyes? Who made your little nose? You are complete! When does life begin at birth or at the time of conception?

If you are a born-again  child of God, you are BLESSED!

At Kenneth Copeland Ministries, Canada, we are on a divine mission to let God’s people know that THE BLESSING – that God gave Adam in the Garden of Eden – that empowered them to be fruitful and have dominion over the earth – that He gave to Abraham that made him heir of the world and a blessing to all the families of the earth....

Zamba

images/stories/zamba.jpgA young lad by the name of Michael Duku was a student of unusual brilliance even in his earliest school days. He lived and went to school in war-torn Southern Sudan.

When the extremist Islamists from the north of Sudan invaded their own predominantly Christian south, they were on the look-out for youngsters whom they could set aside as promising young scholars and train them in special schools for the particularly gifted. Michael was one of those chosen, together with another young lad of his tribe.

As they were transported over two hundred miles, they were told they would be enrolled in a school for specialized training for future service to their country. Readmore
