7 Quick Takes Friday (Vol. 44)

Stand Up for Religious Freedom “No more than should my car insurance cover your tune-up, should my health insurance cover your sex life.” -Star Parker of Center for Urban Renewal and Education (CURE)
         Got 10 minutes to listen to the truth?  WATCH THE VIDEO HERE!!
A few of my favorite key talking points of Star Parker, a woman who was once at the mercy of our messed up "women's health care" system she’s now trying to fix:
 The three options given to religious organizations through Obamacare:
1.      Bow your knee to King Nebachnezzar 2.      Pay a fine to Caesar  3.      Leave the business
     “And what is the specific business of the Church that the secular left has declared war on?  Care for our nation’s elderly, our nation’s weak, our nation’s sick, and our nation’s orphans.”
       “Why is this administration declaring war on those who would serve the least of these?” 
Praising God! The doctor is very pleased with how well Kevin's foot is healing!  He’s still sporting his sexy black surgical sandal.  He finally gets his stitches out on Monday.  Thanks everyone for the prayers and support!  Oh, and his podiatrist, Dr. Shadbolt, is yet again listed in Richmond Magazine as one of the Top Docs.  It’s all good!
Taking It to the Next Level! Kevin and I are very excited for our dearly beloved brother in Christ, who today, March 29, 2012, will be taking the next step in the official application process (and in his ongoing discernment) to enter seminary.     John, you’ve truly fallen in love with the Lord Jesus Christ and want God’s will for your life more than anything else.  That’s the best position to be in now and in the future.  Be at peace: God loves you unconditionally and continues to draw you ever-closer to Him!     
The Boy Who Met Jesus: Segatashya of Kibeho is amazing, spellbinding, miraculous, and riveting! The Boy Who Met Jesus: Segatashya of Kibeho is the well-documented and researched account of how a very poor, illiterate, pagan farmer boy from a town in Africa so small it literally wasn’t on the map came to be a prophet and evangelist before he was brutally murdered in the 1994 genocide in Rwanda… Read more here.
Pure Pleasure, Sheer Joy This week I had the privilege of witnessing the pure pleasure and sheer joy of children discovering the wonders of nature, particularly as it reveals itself through little green inchworms crawling everywhere.  Their faces lit up and their friends gathered around as they picked up one tiny inchworm after another around the playground so they could inspect them closely in the palms of their little hands.  This seems to be the sort of rejoicing the Lord intends for us to have for His creation!  Again, children have proven to be such wonderfully wise spiritual directors just by their honest example.
Welcome home!! Kevin and I, of course all of the Baab clan, and lots of other family and friends are very excited that Luke Baab is finally home  after serving our country in Afghanistan.  Praise God for bringing him home safely and continue praying for all the men and women who are still in harm's way, and their families waiting eagerly for their return.   
Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel  St. Michael, the Archangel, defend us in our day of battle.  Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil.  May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and by the power of God, cast into hell all evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls.  Amen.

Celebrate New Life!  Keep praying, and keep believing. God is working, even now! Remember that our 40 Days for Life closing hour April 1, 2012 Sunday 6 - 7pm will be a celebration of NEW LIFE. Bring baby items - especially diapers and formula - for the three organizations we will help: The Pregnancy Resource Center     Catholic Charities     Healthy Families
    We will celebrate the wonderful things that have happened this Spring, 2012, in Richmond and in the nation!
     Plan to join us for the fun, the prayers, the songs and the celebration. You earned it!
God is good. Praise Him Forever
. Peace, Ann
