Celebrate with us the Gift of Life!
Let’s talk about gifts for a moment. Throughout your life, you may receive many gifts. Some of these gifts, you asked for. Others may not have been what you expected. What do you do with a gift- expected or unexpected? Do you toss it in the trash with yesterday’s dinner? Do you tear it open with great joy, and then demand a new one when you are not satisfied? Maybe the gift was an old heirloom that seems worthless to the eyes of others, or it was crayon drawing from a sibling that has seemingly little value. Do you discard these gifts? Or do you appreciate and cherish them?
Friends, Life is a gift. Although life has many unplanned surprises, and at times there may be struggles and even pain, we know that each life is valuable. Yes, every life is to be valued- young and old, weak and strong, poor and wealthy. Each person deserves to be protected, comforted, and loved.
As we near the Christmas season, we are reminded to be joyful for our own lives and for the lives of those people around us. This month, join with SFLA by spreading Christmas cheer! Help us show women that pregnancy is not a crisis, but a gift that can be celebrated. Help us reach out to those who need a little extra joy this season. Celebrate with your peers, and engage your community in the spirit of joyful giving and compassionate outreach!
