Look at the RAINBOW!!!

Filed Under (Blogs) by Susan on 13-11-2012

I was driving Philip home from school yesterday after a dreary rainy day. Philip was happily chattering about his day, and then he mentioned his most embarrassing moment in Bible class. He had fallen asleep in class!! His instructor had kindly advised him to go to the first aid station, but Philip told me that he resolved that would never happen again!


Look at the rainbow

This is the rainbow that Susan and Philip saw as they were traveling

The past 3-4 days Philip has really struggled with his breathing at night, while wearing his BIPAP. Like I’ve said before, it is so difficult to watch him struggle. I feel so helpless in watching, repositioning, or holding him. There is nothing to do but cry and pray that he would rest well so that he would be refreshed the next morning.


I couldn’t help but get teary-eyed when Philip told me about his embarrassing moment in class. I again thought to myself, which doctor should I talk to, and how else could we correct things or help him? Suddenly, Philip shouted, “Mom, look, look ahead!” I panicked, thinking I was heading for a car. Then he shouted, “look at the rainbow, it’s a reminder of God’s promises!”


It was indeed a beautiful rainbow, and we saw two together, in fact. I thought of the promises obtained over the years. Many promises over the future of Philip and the miracles in the past, and the miracles we believe to come.


There is no such thing as coincidence. This was a providential reminder, God does keep his promises. People fail us, things, life, nothing is for certain. But God. His Word never fails.


Stay strong, my friends. God is on the throne, and He never changes.




Women and the right to….VOTE

Filed Under (Blogs) by Susan on 04-11-2012

There has been a lot of talk in 2012 regarding the “war on women” and the “woman’s vote.” This is true in regards to the election year, I’m not sure that it is much of an issue otherwise.


I am not here to tell you whom to vote for, just advising that you do go to the polls with eyes wide open. We believe at LWR that we exist “because every child matters.” For that matter, there would be no child, if there was no mother (or father). Every child matters.


Since 1973, 54 million abortions have occurred in the US alone. You read that right, 54 million babies who were taken from the safety of the womb to be discarded, their life light whisked out. Close to 500 physicians signed a public declaration indicating “Abortion is never necessary to save the life of the
mother.” (American Life League)


Then, is abortion necessary at all? People, we each have the right to choose our mate. You and I can choose our political party. But don’t you dare hide behind the word “choice” when it comes to the life of a baby.You must say it as it is. You either are declaring life or death when it comes to an “unintended pregnancy.” Only 8% of abortions fall in the category of source as rape, incest or mother’s health. Personal reasons are cited for the 92% remaining, according the the National Right to life website.



It is PAST time to stand up for the lives of the children that were destroyed before their time. It is an enemy called Satan who comes to steal,kill, and destroy. Jesus Christ came to give life, and life more abundant. If you don’t believe me, take the time to visit the National Memorial for the Unborn in Chattanooga. You will weep when you read the plaques and grave markers of the aborted children whose parents and sometimes grandparents have placed in their honor. How they wish they could turn back the clock.We can’t turn it back. However, we can declare today that we will stand up for the right to life of our children. If you don’t want your child, then give them to me, as Mother Teresa said. I will take care of them. Every child matters. No one is unwanted.



So, yes, there is a war on women. The war to make women think that they have no alternative but death in the case of an unintended pregnancy. The war to make women think that people are trying to dictate what you can or cannot do to your body. The fact is this baby is a new life, separate from yours and mine, that is temporarily housed and sheltered in the womb. And because every child matters, no matter the race, sex, disability or appearance, they deserve life.



Go to the polls and let your voice be heard. There are 54 million voices who will never be heard.



Because every child matters!
