MY DAUGHTER'S WONDERFUL MOTHERS OF MULTIPLES
SUPPORTERS - I just love this Mom!!
Tuesday on Wednesday
God is an Awesome God!
He can do things just because He wants to.
It doesn't happen on our time, it happens when He is ready.
Our job is to be patient and put trust in Him that He knows what He is doing.
It's not always easy to remain faithful. It can be hard not to falter when times get tough.
Hard not to think perhaps God has abandoned us.
I know I have been there, allowed myself to doubt God.
It's embarassing to admit.
No, worse than embarassing. Shameful.
I have questioned, "Why me, Lord?", only to have His plans revealed to me later, when He was ready to show me and probably when I was more ready to see.
The Lord works in mysterious ways. We don't always understand at first what those ways are, but He always reveals Himself to us. Always.
I have tried hard to understand God's plans for my friend, Jess, and her daughter Tuesday. It is difficult not to get angry with God for making this little girl suffer so much and putting her family through so much anguish. But, I have to believe that God will reveal his plan.
I have to have faith that there is something bigger planned and I am waiting to see Him perform miracles right before our very eyes.
He is constantly at work.
Big miracles. Small miracles.
With Him ALL things are possible.
And, so, especially for my friend, Jess....
I am posting this for you today, because you need to see that with God nothing is impossible.
Will IS walking!
Not just taking one or two steps. REALLY WALKING.
We were told he might never walk and Will is walking.
God is at work!
If God can make my little boy walk, God can heal Tuesday.
Just because He can!
SADLY, THIS WILL LIKELY PROVE ABE RIGHT!

Obama Woos Abortion Foes With Platform Embracing Motherhood
By Kristin Jensen
Aug. 14 (Bloomberg) -- Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama and his supporters are working to win over voters who want to ban or reduce abortions with a call for measures to help women keep their babies.
The party's platform supports the 1973 Roe v. Wade Supreme Court ruling that made abortion legal and adds a twist, saying the party ``strongly'' backs a woman's decision to carry a pregnancy to term. The compromise language is the result of behind-the-scenes negotiations with abortion-rights groups and religious leaders on both sides of the issue.
The idea is to frame abortion as less of an either-or issue by discussing both the need to keep abortion legal and the desire to provide programs for expectant and new mothers. It may help Democrats woo evangelical Christians, a core Republican constituency that backed President George W. Bush by a margin of 77 percent in 2004.
``Voters that this will win over are those that are looking for an excuse to vote for Obama,'' said Joel Hunter, a Florida pastor who helped with the language and said he is a ``pro-life'' Republican. ``They just needed one signal that, if I vote for him, more babies can be saved than if we keep wrangling over whether Roe v. Wade is going to be overturned.''
Hunter, 60, is undecided about his vote, though he said the language in the platform ``is huge for me.''
