“If a woman sees her baby on an ultrasound, there’s better than an 80 percent chance she will not abort her baby. If the dad sees the baby on an ultrasound, there’s more than a 90 percent she will not abort her baby.” Anthony Levatino, former abortion doctor~
The 40 Days for Life are over. God answers the prayers of His people. More than 15,000 babies are alive today because of that effort.
Now it’s Holy Week.
Christ entered the city to shouts of joy. But He knew what was ahead. A bigger agony than any other has ever known–physical anguish–plus the turning away of His Father. The sacrificial Lamb on the cross was alone for the first time in forever.
This was Christ who’d said, “Let the little children come unto me.”
But then Resurrection Day. And then Pentecost–the bestowing of God’s Holy Spirit.
And so came the Church.
We are His messengers. We carry the message of life. Physical life for the weak and voiceless. Abundant life for our spirits.
And we carry joy in our message, the joy of knowing such a Savior.
We carry the hope of light into a dark world.
Happy Easter! God bless!

Yes. We have a message of life to share with the world. What a great connection you have made here!
Thank you, Brittany! God bless!
Oh Nancy, your words captured my heart! How our precious Savior and Lord suffered for us. The same one who loved the little children and called them to Himself. May we shine His light and love this Easter and always! Blessings to you!
Thank you, Melissa! Shine well! God bless!
Nancy, those opening statistics are good to know. It makes sense once a parent sees the baby…alive…on the ultrasound, they don’t abort. Thankful for the babies saved during the 40 Days of Life.
And grateful for Holy week and what Jesus accomplished for us in death and resurrection to give us life. Happy Easter!
It would all be without meaning if Christ had not come to save us. Thanks, Karen! God bless and Happy Easter!
Praise God for all those children and families spared. We can celebrate their new life when we celebrate new life in Christ because of His resurrection. Whata glorious Easter this can be for those families. Thank you for sharing, Nancy.
Thanks for commenting, Stephen. God bless and Happy Easter!
“But then Resurrection Day.”

Thank you, Jessica! God bless! Happy Easter!
Praise God for these lives saved, thank you for your message of hope.
Thanks, Stephen; God bless and Happy Easter!
We have this beautiful Savior, and to him we can pray that he’ll open the eyes of more expectant mothers and fathers to see the little life in the sonogram. Lord, please bring more men to those first appointments. Move their hearts to come.
Amen, Melinda! Thank you! God bless! Happy Easter!
Amen! I love the challenge and role we play, “We are His messengers. We carry the message of life. Physical life for the weak and voiceless.” Thank you, Nancy, for being this messenger for the many babies who do not have a voice.
Thanks for encouraging me, Marcie. God bless! Happy Easter!
But then.. resurrection day. Amen; happy Easter!
Thank you, Candice. God bless!
Thankful for Jesus, his sacrifice and resurrection, and being the light in the dark world. And we who follow, are called to be that light and radiate hope and truth and love into the darkness.
Thank you, Anne! God bless!
Amen! Let us not keep the truth to ourselves!
Thank you, Emily! God bless!
Wonderful to hear about the lives being saved.
We often don’t feel like we’re doing much when we pray, but we sure are. Thanks, Yvonne. God bless!
