Unlocking Hearts to Jesus and Babies


I spent part of my day making two Sculpy clay nativity scenes for a dear friend who has helped me a lot since my cancer diagnosis. She saw a nativity at my home that my daughter made and asked if I could make one for her. I warned her I am not as talented with Sculpy clay as my daughter, but I would give it a go.


It is not easy for these old eyes and less-than-nimble fingers to work on objects so small. The two nativities took me several hours. Still, I think they are cute. They are unique and made with love. Surely that counts for something!

Just so you can see what true Sculpy talent can produce, here is the one my daughter made for me. This is so so cherished that I display it year round. It reminds me of how precious my Savior is (not to mention...as is my daughter.).


I am now fully in the Christmas spirit, which is just in time for the massive prayer walk this Saturday (9-11:30) around Charlotte's busiest abortion center. The rumor is that four thousand prayer warriors will be there for the two hour prayer march! I will then man the Cities4Life tent afterwards for all those who might want to come chat about our ministry to the women who are considering abortion. I love our ministry because not only does it provide the truth and hope of the Gospel, but also tries to meet earthly needs of the desperate mom, who is often in dire circumstances. Stop by and visit with me!

Notice the two moms I made in my little clay nativities. The first is stretching her arms wide in praise and wonder. The second is gazing at her baby while praying with a touch of anxiety, but also a mountain of hope. These emotions are what Cities4Life hopes to unlock in the mamas who have barricaded their hearts to God and to their child.

Join us this weekend at 3207 Latrobe Ave! What's a few more joined in prayer to a crowd of 4,000? (Everything in God's eyes!)  For info, click HERE, Love Life Charlotte.

Mark 11:24 

Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.

If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.

And whatever we ask we receive from him, because we keep his commandments and do what pleases him.
