BarlowGirl - Never Silence Life

"One Day. One Voice. One Heartbeat. Together we will stand for change. Together we will make history."
~ BarlowGirl, Never Silence Life

January 22, 1973 was the day abortion was legalized, and since then, millions of children have been killed.

January 22, 2009 - BarlowGirl rises up a plea that we be the "voice of the voiceless."

"This call is an attempt to come together in unity, with one voice, to be the sound of the heartbeat that will wake up the sleeping in our nation. So, on January 22, 2009, in a silent protest, we will stand in front of court houses, schools and in churches praying for the lives of the unborn. We will gather all across America. We don't gather in violence, but with a repentant heart, we will lay our petitions before the Lord to have mercy on our country and bring change to the hearts of Americans and their view on the importance of a human life." - NeverSilenceLife.Com

Will you go?

Although Christin and I don't live in America, we will be praying with you, rising up with you. We, too, have to fight abortion in the Philippines. It is not as rampant as in the States, but we still have to fight against it, we still have to fight for the voices of the babies that have been silenced.

A Christmas Reminder

Christmas is the most celebrated season of the year. Merriment and joyous signs are everywhere. Houses glow with Christmas lights. Shopping malls decorated with Christmas trees and beautiful garlands are full of people shopping for gifts. Mothers bake and prepare for Christmas dinner. Fathers get their extra bonuses from work. Children make their wish list. Aunts and uncles send their gifts over. The post office becomes busy with cards to be sent. Students pack up and leave their colleges to spend Christmas holiday at home. People hold all kinds of Christmas parties and gift-giving to charities.

Just what really is Christmas that everybody is so busy with it?

I once heard on the radio that Christmas is about caring and sharing to others. Giving to poor and being good. It's all about love the dj concluded. But, just what kind of love is he talking about?

The video I'm sharing below is a wonderful allegory and a great reminder of the True Love that should matter on hearts this Christmas. Please don't walk away from this site without having viewed the video. It's only around six minutes and those minutes you will spend on watching will be more than worth it.

Happy Christmas from Ladies-In-Training! Cherish our Father's great love in our hearts this Christmas and in all seasons to come!
