So what about women's rights? So what about terrorist's rights?

When it comes to being prolife versus pro abortion, inevitably the first question that pops up is,

"So what about women, don't they have any rights?" 
Which is the same as saying,
"So what about terrorists, don't they have rights?" 

Both attack and kill the defenceless and helpless for their own selfish ideology.

We don't let terrorists murder, so why do we let women chose to murder their own family? 

When we read about Mary Slessor who rescued twins in Africa as one twin was considered a child of the devil, and both were killed in case the devils child brought bad luck on the whole village - we are horrified at this barbaric behaviour. The mother's were ostracized from the village too. Yet our culture/society supports an even more common brutal murder of any 'inconvenient' babies. And encourages mothers to allow the murder their babies, and to have to live with their guilt for the rest of their lives. The 'encouragers' don't have to live with the mother's heart ache.They don't support the mother through years of heart ache!
Our women need support and love and protection - not the the right to murder. Friendships that are closer than family. Murdering their own babies just makes the situation worse than ever. God's grace can give strength in all dire circumstances, and take away guilt too. We are the ones who have to show God's love in these situations. Are we prepared to give that support, love and protection?

Nails in the fence: Anonymous author

There once was
a little boy who had a bad temper.  His Father gave him a bag of nails and told him that every time he lost his temper, he must hammer a nail into the back of the fence.
The first day
the boy had driven 37 nails into the fence.  Over the next
few weeks, as he learned to control his anger, the number of nails hammered daily
gradually dwindled down.  He discovered it was easier to hold his temper than to drive those nails into the fence.  Finally the day came when the boy didn't lose his temper at all.

He told his
father about it and the father suggested that the boy now pull out one nail for each day that he was able to hold his

The days
passed and the young boy was finally able to tell his father that all the nails were gone.

The father
took his son by the hand and led him to the fence.  He said, 'You have done well, my son, but look at the holes in the fence.  The fence will
never be the same.  When you say things in anger, they leave a scar just like this one.  You can put a knife in a man and draw it out.  But It won't matter how many times you say I'm sorry, the wound will still be there.  A verbal wound is as bad as a physical one.

Remember that friends are very rare jewels indeed.
They make you smile and encourage you to succeed; They lend an ear, they share words of praise and they always want to open
their hearts to us.

Why abort abotion?

See: (not suitable for sensitive/young viewers) 

One glance at these photographs will tell you why...abortion is a just another word for the brutal murder of a weaker human being! When will society protect and defend the helpless? When will we give these babes basic human rights? When will this war against the totally defenceless end?

Are you Prolife? Do you know that The Pill does cause abotions?

Randy Alcorn is the most outspoken christian on this matter, having written a booklet to help us understand the issues. Here is a quote by Randy Alcorn, " The Pill is used by about fourteen million American women each year and sixty million women internationally. Thus, even an infinitesimally low portion (say one-hundredth of one percent) of 780 million Pill cycles per year globally could represent tens of thousands of unborn children lost to this form of chemical abortion annually. How many young lives have to be jeopardized for prolife believers to question the ethics of using the Pill? This is an issue with profound moral implications for those believing we are called to protect the lives of children."

Here is an Amazon link to his book Does the Birth Control Pill Cause Abortions?
Or you can download it here:

Blindness to Nature

Nature study is a part of our formal education.
Scroll down and see I love this part of our our education. It gives opportunity to enjoy God's creation and revel in it. Even my littlest boy (2) is enjoying nature - last week we were waiting for the big kids outside the library and we saw a Blue Masked Honeyeater for the first time, he was so excited and wanted me to catch the bird for him :-) See these beautiful photographs

Emma is our expert when it comes to nature observation ... she knows where the lizards and geckos  hide and where there are holes in the garden and waits to figure out who lives there; she finds eggs that are half a centimetre and keeps them to see if they will hatch into what?

I love being opposite our park and seeing the trees through the seasons, and enjoy the different seed pods, leaf shapes, enjoy seeing the children climb different shaped trees.
I have noticed that there are very few children who notice these things or who have time to climb trees. They will bike around on the cement path, send texts, kick a ball, chat to friends, swing etc but then rush off sad I feel each time I notice this blindness to God's beautiful creation. How grateful I am for such awesome creation right on our doorstep! We are always finding treasures to bring home and enjoy; we keep them in a wooden bowl, otherwise they clutter up the whole house. At present our favourite seeds are the 'helicopter seeds', which twirl around like helicopter propellers after you have thrown them up in the air. Where ever we go we all scavenge for treasures.

Even grown up Jessica still can't resist the urge and takes treasure/nature samples home when she walks from the bus stop and shares them with her children at day care.

Take time to enjoy God's creation, it is a wonderful way to relax. Walk slowly and the old cliche says, " take time to smell the roses".
