My 100th Blog!!

Today is blog number 100 for anyone who’s counting! I know a lot of people do something really special for blog #100, and so I wanted to do the same. I thought and thought about what would be something really neat that I could do to celebrate this 100th blog. When it all came down to it, what really came to me very strongly was that I should say in this 100th blog that today I am writing this in honor of the first 100 pregnant girls who came through the Mercy Ministries home. About 50% of those girls made the decision to place their babies for adoption, and the other half decided to parent. In both cases, because of the courageous decision to choose life, not only did these birthmothers receive life for their children, they received new life in Jesus Christ. You might say that this represents a double blessing!

I couldn’t think of anyone that I would want to honor any more. I can tell you that the first 100 babies would have been born in the 1980s. So that means that these young men and women would now be in their 20s. I can guarantee you that they are out there somewhere thanking God that their birthmother chose life and chose to give them an opportunity to enjoy life to the fullest. Today we honor those first 100 girls and those first 100 babies (you know who you are if you are reading this!!)

Even now as I close this blog today, I can’t help but think of the young girls who are currently in the homes at the present time who have also made the choice for life. Just think what this will mean to them 20 some years from now!

Hope you are having a great day!
