LIFE AT CONCEPTION ACT

  

Thanks to advances in technology, we are now able to see the developing fetus in its earliest stages via 3D ultrasound.  This technology wasn't available when Roe v. Wade made abortions legal in 1974. If this technology had been available in 1974, do you think there would have been any doubt as to the humanity of the infant in the womb?  READ MORE...

SIGN OF THE COVENANT

THERE IS HOPE!

God keeps His promises

I think sometimes people assume that because Christians speak of the Joy of the Lord, that their lives must be blissful and peaceful.  But this isn't always true.  God doesn't promise a pain-free existence, but He does promise a way out so that we can endure our trials... READ MORE...

 

  

An open letter to the anonymous Good Samaritan who visited my house on March 8  

Dear friend, I was stunned and overwhelmed by your act of love and charity.  Things like this just don't happen to me... and yet, it just did... 

I hope one day you will tell me who you are, so I can properly thank you.  I pray that you will obtain a miraculous blessing and that one day, you will tell me about it!

I feel so blessed to be the recipient of your loving spirit and generous heart.  I hope you feel my arms reaching out to hug you! 

Today my dear friend, I proclaim that THROUGH YOU, the glory of God has been fulfilled.  

Love and God's blessings, 
Mar

 CROWN OF THORNS

I begin every morning in prayer, and the day started out the same as all others.  I pour myself a cup of coffee and settle into my prayer spot.  I peer out the front window, and I see the cross in the woods across the street.  There's a crucifix on the wall straight in front of me.  When I looked up that morning, I noticed a thin beam of light on the wall, pointing at an angle toward the crucifix.  I see a lot of things in and around my home, but in three years, I had never seen a light like this before.  Besides, how did the light point upward? READ MORE...
