heavy as a hundred bowling balls

There is a lot to pray for in our world right now. I guess that is always a true statement, but you probably know what I mean. Sometimes I really feel the weight. The state of our country, the many situations in my own family that I carry around in my heart continually, the grave situations of some of our blog-friends right now...I just walk around saying the name of Jesus all day long.

 Bob and I are going to the March for Life on Monday. I am going to be one of the Silent No More group that walks with my "I regret my abortion" sign. Then on the steps of the Supreme Court, we will give our short testimonies, one by one. ( I recently got my hair cut, and joked with the hairdresser about trying to look decent for the you tube videos that inevitably come out after). See,  I just have to find humor somewhere, or the heaviness might crush us all!

Really, I ask for your prayer support for my family. There is always that line of doing/praying and trusting, that changes all the time, and I have a hard time keeping up.
Also for our trip to DC on Monday, and for all who are on the front lines of this battle. That the world would recognize the fifty million lost lives, and those who are planning to have their babies join that statistic.

Lord Jesus, look on us with mercy, and help us find our way.


  1. The tide will change. The Grosnells and Brighams of the world are now coming to light. What never changed anyone's heart or mind is polarization. Elizabeth's simple gesture, leaving Abby a bouquet and the little card enclosed with it - those are the kinds of things that light a spark. If so-called health professionals refused to participate in abortion, the numbers of lives snuffed out before birth would dramatically drop. I don't know if we're (meaning those opposed to abortion, not you and me necessarily) are praying enough.

    God Bless you and you are of course in my prayers.

  2. I have great admiration for what you are doing. But it occurs to me as I write this, you could probably use my prayers more than my admiration. So, I will pray.
