Standing for the Unborn

Today was Life Chain.  I told my kids where I was going and what I was going to do and asked them if they wanted to come.  All three did.  Zach stayed home with napping Abby.  I was so amazed and proud that they wanted to come with me rather than stay home and play!  Part of me feared them horsing around and not listening to me during the event, but they did GREAT!  We picked our signs up at the church that was hosting it and I saw a friend from my homeschool group.  She told me where she was driving to so I drove down there and we sat/stood together.  I read parts of the back of the signs to the boys, explaining the behavior that we should exemplify as we stand holding these signs.  They seemed so proud to stand there holding these signs.  After a while Josiah said, "Oh, I need to smile!" (one of the 'rules') and put a big grin on his face, holding his sign high.  I was teary eyed, seeing my children doing what they were- taking an hour and a half of their time to stand for the unborn.  It meant so much to me to share that time with them.  We had many cars go by where people honked, threw out peace signs and waved.  We also had a few flip us off and one lady yelled out, "Judge not lest ye be judged!"  I was amazed at the line of people standing, dedicating their day to these babies.  I wish I couldn't driven by to see just how many people there were.  I remember we did this once in North Carolina and tehre weren't nearly as many people who did it (of course the town was a lot smaller also).

How very awesome that the kids wanted to join you. I especially love the adoption posters!
