Trees, Bees, and Murder in the Target Parking Lot

     Where can you attend a memorial service for bees or join a protest against a man cutting down a tree on his property?  In Oregon. 

     The state is beautiful with a gentle climate, dramatic views and lush plant life--particularly trees.  Such beauty attracts many nature lovers and a sizeable number of them, seem to like trees better than people.

"Five Miracles in One Day" by Jody Murphy

This story was originally published in Amazing Grace for Families. It is an uplifting reminder of how amazing life and love can be.

     “I can't do this anymore,” I told my husband Kevin. After three years of painful fertility treatments with no results, enough was enough. The strong medication and the extreme hormone surges brought physical pain and put me on an emotional roller coaster. I did not want to live like that anymore. 

     Even before I married, I knew conceiving a child would be difficult. When I was a teenager, I was diagnosed with polycystic ovarian disease. My health was fine, but my chances of ever getting pregnant were slim.

     Kevin and I shared a deep desire to raise children, but we both agreed it did not matter if they were our own flesh and blood. We prayed to God for children and asked Him to lead us to the ones that needed us. Kevin and I felt drawn to foster care. Our caseworker understood that our ultimate dream was to adopt, so when she learned of twins that were free for adoption, she called us immediately.

Evolved Thinking Brings Us Lesbian Babies

      Some people think they are more highly evolved than those mired in morality.  Their politically correct rants propel us into a strange new world where life, death, and marriage are relative and sexual urges determine right and wrong.  But rather than evolving into higher thinking, their pride pulls them into insanity. Proof that the world has gone mad has reared its ugly head in the Pacific of late.
