"And hope does not disappoint us,
because God has poured out his LOVE into our hearts by the Holy Spirit..." Romans 5:5

Choose LIFE... vote wisely, please.

This is a little book I made last year for for my nephew's girlfriend's baby-to-be. Circumstances weren't exactly what my nephew and his girlfriend had planned, I am sure. Let's face it... no child says, "I want to grow up to be a parent while still in high school. Ya, that would be fun." No. God gives us choices. And LIFE happens. Daniel and Jennifer very easily could have decided a baby was not what they should have to be tied down with at age 17. As one of the presidential candidates put it... he didn't want his daughters to be "punished with having a child" if they immaturely got pregnant.
I am SO (and I mean SO VERY) grateful my nephew and his girlfriend did not see their unborn child as a "punishment." I am so glad my nephew and his girlfriend decided to CHOOSE LIFE by allowing thier sweet little Danielle to bless our world and family. And let me tell you... bless our family, she has! She is a fireball of life and energy. The child only smiles, giggles and RUNS now a year after her parents made an otherwise impulsive decision followed by the right thing to do.
Soon we will vote on a new president for this great country we live in. Please vote wisely. Be informed. And if you are a Christian, VOTE THE BIBLE. I will say it again... vote God's Word. Is there any issue more important than LIFE, itself? There are many many issues. But is there any more important? As a Believer in Christ, I MUST say no, there is no issue more important than the sanctity of life. Please vote wisely.
