 CHOOSE LIFE :—Psalm 106:34-38 “…they mingled with the nations and adopted their customs, they worshiped their idols, which became a snare to them. They sacrificed their sons and daughters to demons. They shed innocent blood, the blood of their sons and daughters, whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan and the land was desecrated by their blood.” Seldom is abortion anything except a sacrifice of babies to the “acts of the sinful nature” (Gal. 5:20-21). Leviticus 20:4 indicates if “people of the community close their eyes” to the sacrifice of children, then God will set his face against the perpetrators of this evil.  Why would anyone want to kill an innocent?

CHOOSE LIFE – Deuteronomy 30:15-19  “See, I set before you today life and prosperity death and destruction.  For I command you today to love the Lord your God, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commands, decrees and laws, then you will life and increase,” Oneta opines – This earthly life is hard, filled with pitfalls and troubles; however, going it with God’s blessings sure does beat going alone. Why would anyone want to choose a life disobedience to God rather than a life of obedience to God?

CHOOSE LIFE – John 3:16  “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whosoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”  Why would anyone not want to choose an eternal life of peace and happiness?

Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

    The big hurdle is learning not to choose life on OUR terms…

    Our very lives are showing us much is ‘out of our control’. It is time, I believe to KNOW ABSOLUTELY that surrender to the ONE who is the safe guarder of our souls has really come. We must know HE IS LORD!

    Our SS class has been studying the life of Moses. Just finished up yesterday and discussed Moses’s farewell address to the Israelites. Blessings and curses… Choose life.
