40 days for life

I went to pray outside an abortion clinic today with my husband and the booga bear for the first time. I don't have it in me right now to coalesce my thoughts on that experience into an intelligent post, but I did want to take the time to point out that there is a national pro-life campaign going on NOW called 40 Days For Life.

There may not be organized activities in your city, but everyone everywhere can pray and/or fast. Please check it out:

We have wanted to get involved in the pro-life movement for a long time, and as this was our first time to actually do something, I am reminded of one of my favorite passages:

"Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like a man who looks at his face in a mirror and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. But the man who looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues to do this, not forgetting what he has heard, but doing it-he will be blessed in what he does" James 1:22-25
