Red Envelope Day

Monday, March 23, 2009

I'm not a political person by any means, but I know what I stand for and I know what I'm passionate about. The murder of our children definitely tops my list. Abortion is an incredibly hot topic these days and many people will argue until they're blue in the face. On that note, I just want to add that I am not posting this to stir up a debate. There are plenty of forums where you can do that - this not being one of them. I am merely posting for information and education purposes and my take on this project.

I first heard about Red Envelope Day earlier this month on Facebook. Reading further about it, I decided that I would think and pray about it. The more I prayed, the more the Spirit urged me on and I'm proud to say that today I purchased five envelopes to send - nothing incredible, but at least I know I can sleep well at night knowing that three small voices in Twin Falls, Idaho will be heard all the way in Washington D.C. on March 31st. I have never in my life took a stand on anything, but I felt that this was simple, yet profound - just like the little lives of the children the project is fighting to save. As Christians, we are called to pray for for those who have authority over us. I pray that this changes the president's mind and heart about this issue.
