Good Morning out there! It is beautiful outside and the temp is great! I just got home after walking at the KOA, if you live in San Angelo, you know where that is, if you don't, it is a great place to walk!
The first thing I saw when I drove up was my little cardinal couple, I love those birds! They were hopping around (yes, hopping) in the green grass topped off with the light morning dew! My grandkids know how much I enjoy watching these birds, whoever spots them first will yell, "look, it's the red bird and his wife!"
As I was walking, I was praying the Joyful Mysteries of The Rosary. I want to share the Pro-Life Joyful Mysteries with you. It doesn't matter whether you are Catholic or not, the scripture is from the Bible, and the intention that follows is pro-life, as Christians, this is for us all. Whoever wrote the intentions for the Pro-Life Rosary sure put their heart into it. I hope you will take the time to read these, thank you for reading my blog. Bye for now, Sharla
First Joyful Mystery
And when the angel had come to her, he said, "Hail, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women."
Mary is troubled by the angel's greeting, yet rejoices to do God's will. Let us pray that those who are troubled by their pregnancy may have the grace to trust in God's will.
Second Joyful Mystery
Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit and cried out in a loud voice: "Blest are you among women and blest is the fruit of your womb."
John the Baptist leapt for joy in his mother's womb. We pray that people may realize that abortion is not about children who "might" come into the world, but is about children who are already in the world, living and growing in the womb, and are scheduled to be killed.
Third Joyful Mystery
The Birth Of Jesus
She gave birth to her first-born Son and wrapped Him in swaddling clothes and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the place where travelers lodged.
God Himself was born as a child. The greatness of a person does not depend on size, for the newborn King is very small. Let us pray for an end to prejudice against the tiny babies threatened by abortion.
Fourth Joyful Mystery
When the day came to purify them according to the law of Moses, the couple brought Him up to Jerusalem so that He could be presented to the Lord, for it is written in the law of the Lord, "Every first-born male shall be consecrated to the Lord."
The Child is presented in the Temple because the Child belongs to God. Children are not the property of their parents, nor of the government. They -and we- belong to God Himself.
Fifth Joyful Mystery
Finding The Child Jesus in The Temple
On the third day they came upon Him in the temple sitting in the midst of the teachers, listening to them and asking them questions.
The boy Jesus was filled with wisdom, because He is God. Let us pray that all people may see the wisdom of His teachings about the dignity of life, and may understand that this teaching is not an opinion, but the truth.
As Catholics, we pray one "Our Father", "Ten Hail Marys", one "Glory be to the Father", and one "O My Jesus" prayer after each intention. For the Pro-Life Rosary we add "Jesus, protect and save the unborn."
Have a wonderful day, my motto for today is: Be Pro-Life, the only other choice is death!
