Life Chain!!! You have to stand up for the truth.

This is where we were on Sunday. (Actually, this is across the street from where we were.)

We've had a life chain in Ann Arbor every year for a number of years. Keep in mind that Ann Arbor is a very wacky, radical, liberal community. (Although I have to say I love it anyway, but not for that reason.) Our City Council once declared Ann Arbor a "Zone of Reproductive Freedom." It said that if abortion were ever declared illegal in Michigan, it would still be legal in Ann Arbor. It was stupid. It was embarrassing. It was like the Hash Bash kids that just can't seem to grow up.

Anyway, we always get yelled at and given obscene gestures during the Life Chain.

We also get a lot of friendly beeping, waving, and thumbs up signs. This year I thought the positives were much more frequent than the negatives. I was pleasantly surprised.

This was my favorite sign across the street. Can you read it? It says, "Don't support abortion with your vote. VOTE PRO-LIFE!" I love it. The people holding it are a good family from our church. My Liz is between two friends. She has the darker sign saying, "Pregnant Women Need Support, Not Abortion."

And sweet Mary on my side of the street. She's been coming to these life chains since she was a baby.
May the day come when we no longer need to do this. May people come to realize what a horrible offense abortion is against God. May life once again be recognized as the sacred gift from God that it is. Lord have mercy!

The Lord certainly does work in mysterious ways!

I guess that The Holy Spirit wanted me to take a look at your blog and so far I'm glad I did.

We had a "Life Chain" in our city this pass Sunday also and I was also carrying an old sign which read "Abortion Kills Children" and I honestly believe that "IT" won't be too long before all signs start to say kinder, gentle words like "Jesus Saves" and if God's Children keep praying why can't "IT" come around someday?

Anyway! I could go on and on telling you that I've been seeing great changes since pass Life Chains where there would be people on the opposite side of the street yelling at U>S also but this time, in reality I only noticed two negative signs and if I was the spiritual school teacher, I would have given our good city a 98% mark. Having said that, I must also say that the lady who was driving the car could not see the guy's finger and well there was one other thumb down but that was honestly the extent of "IT" all that I saw and believe "IT" or not, my eyes tend to be spiritualy wide open most of the times. :)

I'll start closing by saying that if any "ONE" was to ask my opinion, I would say for what "IT" is worth that we humans are honestly on a Heavenly Spiritual Role but that's only if we believe in God Our Heavenly Father.

I have not seen much of your blog but if "IT" is anything like this post I must say, "keep UP The Good Words"

God Bless,

P.S. I forgot to mention Our Heavenly Mother Mary known to many of us Catholics as Our Immaculate Blessed Virgin Mother.

I better just leave "IT" at that for now! :)
