Planned Parenthood and Gosnell

Filed Under (Blogs) by Susan on 26-04-2013

You can imagine the sadness I felt after I heard that my President was going to speak at a gala for Planned Parenthood Thursday April 25. In light of the recent Gosnell trial (i refuse to call him ‘doctor’), and the torturous, inhuman murders committed at the abortion clinic, why would my president honor Planned Parenthood with a keynote address?

Thankfully, there was a change of heart. I know it’s because of YOU, dear readers, who have interceded on behalf of the unborn, and on behalf of our president. I pray there will be more changes to come.

I also could not help but think of Pastor Louis Giglio and the gay activists who basically forced him to decline the offer to pray at the presidential inauguration in January. And I’m sure you have heard about the student uproar at Johns Hopkins, when Dr. Ben Carson was supposed to be the key speaker at the commencement. They were ‘offended’ by his traditional definition of marriage.

My thought was these activists can protest their choice of speakers and leaders for public events, and use their first amendment rights to do so. Can I not exercise MY rights and voice my opinion that I am deeply distressed that my president would deign to lower his standards by speaking for the number one abortion provider that promotes the same horrors visualized in Philadelphia’s “house of horrors.”

I will exercise my right! I urge you to do the same! Enough is enough, and it is PAST time to wake up and express and fight for the same unalienable rights that each citizen of the USA has. That includes the vulnerable and voiceless unborn. Come on and Let’s GO!!

Because EVERY child matters!!

A Messed up Pot

Filed Under (Blogs) by Susan on 11-04-2013

The pot that Philip made at McCallie
This is the picture of the pot which broke a few days after Philip made it.

Philip completed his rotation in the Arts! I think he really enjoyed the opportunity to paint, create pottery and learn some drawing techniques. His final project was to form a “Greek Vessel.” The whole process took several classes. Finally, the young people in the class had their pots in the kiln to be heated. The result Philip found was a broken, messed up pot. He was disappointed, because he had planned to give the vessel to Sara for her birthday. :)

When his art teacher came to collect the broken pot and discard it, Philip told her he would keep it. “Why?” was the response. Philip then launched into Jeremiah 18, and shared with her that the potter mentioned in that chapter had also messed up his clay pot. But the potter did not throw it away, instead refashioned it into another vessel. Philip decided that he would keep his pot, and though he could not literally refigure the vessel, he would paint it, and make it a different vessel.

Once I could control myself, I prayed for the kind of faith to believe the Word, just as it is written. Nothing is too hard for the Lord. He can use any “messed” up individual, and with His love and grace refashion us to be what He calls us to be.
