Passion for Life Banquet




The banquet went really well!! The truth of my abortion experience must be told. The truth of hope and healing after abortion must be told. There was an audible gasp as I introduced the roommate that drove me to my abortion. She is now the Executive Director of Lakes Life Care Center!! 

God is good! He is so good! My heart is full.

27


27 years ago today I aborted my first child. 
I will feel what I feel and take the time to let the tears fall and remember that grief is work. I will allow my feelings to lead me to Him. The One who has my daughter Aubrey. The One who KNOWS and UNDERSTANDS and HEALS and RESCUES and REDEEMS and RESTORES. I will put some flowers by the baby stone, read the card that my husband bought for me, pray and journal and cry and pray some more. And I will yet praise Him. In gratitude I will praise Him. For the babies that are alive today because I told my story. For the mommies of those babies who will NEVER know what I know. For the post abortive women that walk this journey with me. For the joy set before me in seeing my precious Aubrey one day.
I am closer to you, Aubrey than I was last year. I love you, Mommy

Always With Me



And Aubrey was her name,
A not so very ordinary girl or name
But who's to blame?

For a love that wouldn't bloom
For the hearts that never played in tune
Like a lovely melody that everyone can sing,
Take away the words that rhyme it doesn't mean a thing
And Aubrey was her name
We tripped the light and danced together to the moon,
But where was June
No it never came around
If it did it never made a sound,
Maybe I was absent or was listening to fast,
Catching all the words, but then the meaning going past,
But God I miss the girl,
And I'd go a thousand times around the world just to be
Closer to her than to me
And Aubrey was her name,
I never knew her, but I loved her just the same,
I loved her name
Wish that I had found the way
And the reasons that would make her stay
I have learned to lead a life apart from all the rest
If I can't have the one I want, I'll do without the best
But how I miss the girl
And I'd go a million times around the world just to say
She had been mine for a day

From the Sidewalk



THANK YOU for praying this morning!! I believe almost 50 of you were praying when I asked you to in my facebook post.
I went with my friends Cathy and Jared.
There were 3 couples going into Planned Parenthood when we got there. Brian Gibson tried giving one couple a pamphlet and a security guard tried grabbing it out of Brian's hand. Brian said he would call the police and the guard kept chiding him about that. We stood and prayed.
So many cars in and out. Always Jimmy John's for lunch. Always the Medical Disposal Systems truck to carry away the broken and bloodied bodies of innocent human beings.
There was one woman that was in the passenger side heading into the parking lot who stared at my sign the whole time. I prayed that a seed of doubt was firmly planted in her mind. That she would turn from abortion.
Every time I go God gives me a song. (No I don't sing out loud)Today it was- I believe in God our Father I believe in Christ the Son I believe in the Holy Spirit Our God is three in One I believe in the resurrection That we will rise again For I believe In the Name of Jesus.
Jared pulled out his phone and shared a message with the PP escorts. "Consider what you are doing. Do not support the shedding of innocent blood." So proud of him!! Pray for the escorts.

I was flipped off at least 3 times.  I smiled and waved and prayed for them.  I was once that angry too. 
A man drove up to explain that we were doing it wrong. That our signs were not effective. That a sign should say THERE ARE OTHER OPTIONS. WE ARE HERE TO HELP. I told him maybe God was prompting HIM to make that sign and join us.
A woman drove out of the PP driveway with a big smile and a thumbs up. She pulled over and rolled down her window and said, "I CHANGED MY MIND!! IT'S TWINS!!" ohmyheart I ran up to Jared who was still talking to the man who told us we made no difference. "SHE JUST CHOSE LIFE!! SHE IS CARRYING TWINS!!"
The Lord has us on that sidewalk for His reasons. His purposes. He can work through anyone at anytime and He does what pleases Him. And we are obedient. I have been shaking and crying tears of joy and covered in goosebumps that I got to witness a mom CHOOSE LIFE for herself and her precious babies!!
All glory and honor and praise to you Lord!!
Love in Christ,
Carla

Why the Uproar PP??

"Hey, Planned Parenthood. If the federal funds you receive aren't used for abortion, why would decreasing that funding have any effect on the number of children not aborted?"
Such a great question!! I wish I could give credit where credit is due but I don't know who said it.

One Day

There will come a day when my grandchildren or Lord willing, great grandchildren will ask if I did everything I could do to end abortion. 
And I want to be able to answer, "Yes. Yes I did."

Prayers

The first Wednesday of every month I go to the nation's 3rd largest Planned Parenthood in St. Paul, MN to pray.  I bring friends from my church who would like a ride.  And we pray.  We pray against abortion and we pray for the mothers and fathers driving in.  We pray for the sidewalk counselors speaking words of truth and life. We pray for the escorts and the abortionists and every single worker there that they turn from the evil work they are doing and that God opens their eyes.  We pray for the mothers and fathers that went through with it that they one day find true hope and healing in Jesus Christ.

It is never easy.  I don't want to go but I feel God calling me to go and I will be obedient.


Proverbs 24:11-12
Rescue those being led away to death;

    hold back those staggering toward slaughter.
12 If you say, “But we knew nothing about this,”
    does not he who weighs the heart perceive it?
Does not he who guards your life know it?
    Will he not repay everyone according to what they have done?

Operation Outcry

I became the State Team Leader of Operation Outcry in 2007.  I helped to gather declarations and pointed post abortive women and men to the website to fill one out.  They are filed as friend of the court briefs in prolife legislation and they have helped to pass so many prolife laws that are on the books across the US!! Mine and Aubrey's story is a part of that.

If you have been hurt by abortion go to this link and fill out a declaration and help us pass more and more prolife legislation in 2017! Thank you!
