Being pro-life means a lot of things to me. I care about people, I want to help people, I want to be a voice for the unborn because they can not speak for themselves. I want to be an advocate for them. I also care about their mothers, and I want them to know that there are life options that are not talked about enough. To be able to help people I feel like they have to know what you stand for, and that you are knowledgeable about the information they are seeking. I have a lot of pro-life links and resources on my blog so that information about adoption, pregnancy help centers, post-abortion healing for women and men, is easy to access.
I finally got a face book page a couple of weeks ago. Being on face book has been an eye opening experience for me. I love seeing pictures of my family and friends, I enjoy hearing about their lives. I've posted some pro-life information but I feel more comfortable writing about pro-life issues on my blog, it just seems more personal. I know that sounds crazy because anyone can see it, but I also realize that those of you who read my posts read them because you want to.
I have a bunch of pro-life t-shirts that I wear. One says "Pro-Life to the Max" on front, another one says "Choose Life", I have one that says "Life Guard" with a cross between the words that has the precious baby feet on the cross. Most of these shirts say things about protecting the unborn, helping pregnant mothers, etc. on the back. I proudly wear these shirts because the sayings on these shirts are what I believe, they are what I stand for. I also have a bumper sticker on my truck that says "Pro Woman, Pro Child, Pro-Life." You are probably wondering why I'm telling you this, well it is because I'm always ready to answer questions if people say something about my shirt, or my bumper sticker, and people have.
I received a phone call the other day from someone who got my name and number from someone else
because they told them I would have the information they were looking for. I felt so humbled when I spoke to this person, that they called me. I gave them all the information I had. This just re-emphasized, how important it is to let people know what you believe in.
I pray that God will always give me the courage to stand up for what I believe in, no matter where I am and on all social networking sites. The main definition of being pro-life to me means love, and babies are love, they just need to be loved. Bye for now, Sharla
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the
renewing of your minds, so that you may discern what is
the will of God-what is good and acceptable and perfect.
We cannot help conforming
ourselves to what we love.
