20 Aphorisms That I Thought Were Dumb as a Boy But Now Appreciate as a Grown Man | The Art of Manliness

Remembering the 55,000,000 children who have been legally killed in the 41 years abortion has been legal in this country. Pray for the mothers who thought this was their only option, the mothers who chose this freely, the mothers who were coerced. The fathers who pressed for this with words or by absence, the fathers who didn’t want the abortion but had no say, the fathers who don’t even know they ever had a child. The parents who thought they were sparing their child, the children and now-grown adults who are missing siblings, the world who is missing friends. The grandparents who pressed for the abortion to be spared embarrassment, the grandparents who are mourning their grandchildren, the beautiful faces the world will never see. We entrust these children to God. For these and all cases, we beg for forgiveness; His mercy overflows.
For those who do not yet recognize the gravity of what they’ve done, for those who have hardened their hearts to the truth of the life they carried, for those who think they must support abortion because they had one, for those who support abortion because they know someone who did, for those who think this is what progress means, may the truth pierce the lies built around their heart. God’s mercy is never ending.
We as a people have borne this burden of legal atrocity far too long. Far, far too long. May we as a nation not be judged by what we deserve.
Interested to see how this plays out.
Passing along a great link to a list of good travel tips. This is one of my favorite travel info sites.

This would have gotten so much more press if ….. well…. why hasn’t it?
The organization that “sponsored” her is also whack. If you haven’t had a chance to look into them, FEMEN is what they’re called, I’ve heard absolutely nothing good about them at all. Besides the fact that the women who are recruited into their ranks are essentially victims themselves, they are oppressed and abused to the point of submission. Their site is nothing but propaganda, or I’d link.
Pray for Catholics in Europe. And pray that Catholics in America wake up to realize that we’re not that far behind.
Well if this doesn’t inspire you to see more of the world in 2014, I really don’t know what would …
What a great concept. In this season of hospitality, I find it genuinely endearing when friends of mine (ahem ahem, you know who you are!!) open their homes to me and we can spend time together.
Hospitality is a lost art, but that doesn’t mean we can’t all find it again.
And happy first post of 2014!
