A Look Over My Shoulder - October 2019
It's October, and that means pumpkin spice lattes, apple cider, delicious fruit pies and baked goods of all kinds...and many of you will be eating a little more candy than normal, too! As you savor the sweetness, remember THIS: one of the sweetest days I experienced recently at Informed Choices.
Because of you, all of this happened in ONE day at Informed Choices - Thank you! Thank you!
I prayed with four mamas.
Two mamas said “I love you.”
A precious mama told me that a conversation we had a year and half ago helped her and her boyfriend decide to get married sooner rather than later.
I was invited to another mama’s wedding!
I got to see “A Diamond on a Ring:" A teeny baby (the diamond) on the edge of the yolk sac (the ring). The baby as big as a grain of rice and the baby’s beating heart as big as a poppy seed.
I talked with a mama who had almost had an abortion but didn’t.
I talked and prayed with a mama who asked, “If I ask for forgiveness, will He forgive everything?”
I got 8 hugs from mamas (and 1 from a 2 year old princess.)
I gave out information about housing, diapers, food…
I encouraged 2 mamas to take themselves and their children to church.
I looked into the big brown eyes of a baby boy and a baby girl.
A mama shared this quote with me, “I’m gonna pray more and vent less because I don’t need sympathy, I need strength.” Then she said, “Is this what you do?”
I got to encourage a mama with an abortion in her past to come to our S.O.S. group for healing.
I gave a Bible to a mama who held it...as if it was as precious as it is.
While I was in the consultation room, Traci and our wonderful volunteers were giving out maternity & baby clothes and supplies up front. Thank you to all our awesome donors and supporters for giving faithfully and sacrificially so that this ONE SWEET DAY (of many) could happen.
