About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

The Secret

I just received my second hate mail letter of the day.

It did not have my name on it, but it is aimed at a group of people
that I am a part of and agree with.

This is the secret I was referring to in my last post. I wish it were
a better secret!
Sorry, no baby news!

A group of women and I took a stand that was very hard to take.
We agonized over it.

The ladies in charge are so exhausted from the hateful calls and
letters that they have asked me to take over for them.
It's wearing me down.

I can't go into the specifics, but I know that God is on our side and
that the choice is the best one for our children.

Please say a prayer that all will end well, dear friends. For everyone.
I am so glad to be an American where we can be free to speak our
minds. It's the hateful words that are so very hard to take.

Love you all.

I will pray for an end to all this that you have going on at the moment. I don't like the thought of you having to deal with hate mail. You are the last person on earth who deserves any hate mail. Sending a hug and hoping that you can do something fun this weekend.

Oh Lori, I'm so sorry. I'm reminded of Ephesians 6:13 "Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand." Love ya--Amy

Ditto what Amy said!

You can do all things through Christ who STRENGTHENS you.

We had to stand up for our beliefs yet we fall.

I do believe we will answer to God someday on how we raised our children. I rather do what is right in his eyes now, then have to stand before him in shame later.

If you need someone to talk to, you have my number~♥

Love you back~♥

Lori, So sorry someone is being ugly to you and bashing you for your right to stand for what you believe. I know some people just can't be objective when people have their own views...I am one that is very outspoken but I love what others think.

Hope things work out for you. You are one of the sweetest ladies I have met on here and although I may not comment often I do think of you often...everytime I see your necklace. We are lovin it...Lexi wears it also.

Molly said...

Oh Lori! I will get praying for you now! And from one of my favorite songs... "you will be safe in His arms, you will be safe in His arms, the hands that hold the world are holding your heart"! The Lord always keeps you safe in His arms!

Lori ~ As I said a few minutes ago in a recent comment, I have'nt been around much. Just got back to blogging.

But ohhh that is so wrong of those who are being hurtful to you. From what I know and have read, you are one of the most sweetest persons.

Stick with your own belief's, You have that right.

((hugs)) and love you back. ~Sunny

I'm sorry, Lori. I wondered if you would be the once answering that email address. I don't see the purpose of hateful letters, even when we disagree there is always a peaceful way in which we can communicate our feelings to each other.
