Thought,s for life Information Provided By Local MCCL It is good to memorize some facts about early fetal life - the heart begins. to beat at 18 to 21 days, there are brain waves at 6 weeks, at 8 weeks all body systems are present including little fingers and toes. A common pro- abortion comment is to dismiss the facts of prenatal life as "religious". Don't let the above scientific facts be discounted. Because of modern scientific knowledge there are people of all faiths and no faith working in the pro-life movement.

Only a hearing test can deter- mine if you are one of the many a hearing aid can help. The bene- fits of hearing aids vary by type and degree of hearing loss, noise environment, accuracy of hear- ing evaluation and proper fit. Featured will be the smallest Beltone hearing aid - INVISA. there is no volume to adjust, and actual model demonstrations will be available. INVISA IS NO BIGGER AROUND THAN A SOFT CONTACT LENS.

Isaiah 40:6 Last Friday I attended the funeral service for Norman Tangen. was sad to say "goodbye" to an old friend, but the service had special quality that eased some of the pain, for the service largely prepared by Norm. Thoughts of Norman Tangen and Ortonville peers makes me wonder about the future of om community without them...Hopefully others will rise up to their example. A prayer printed in the service folder is especially beautiful... FRIDAY: A PRAYER FOR THIS DAY So quickly, Lord, each passing day slips into eternity, and so raCiously you grant me each morning another opportunity r a new start that I easily take life itself for granted. Teach me, dear Father, so to number my days that I may choose wisely my friends, my work, my goals and my priorities. Help me to laugh and not be frivolous, to work and not be frustrated, to risk and not be afraid. In Jesus name. Amen. I am reminded of a beautiful and inspiring poem by Grace Crowell. These words describe our friend Norman Tangen and serve as a prayer for the New Year as well. Oh, to live beautifully For my brief hour As does a wayside flower, Unperturbed by the strange brevity Of time allotted me: Undisturbed by the overshadowing shine Of tree and climbing vine: Bravely stemming the wind and the beating rain, Bowing and lifting again: Within me some strong inner force as bright As a poppy filled with light; My feet firm-rooted in the earth's good sod, My face turned toward God, Yielding some fragrance down the paths I know A little while.., then go As a flower goes, its petals seeking the ground Without a cry or sound, But leaving behind some gold seed lightly thinned To blow upon the wind.
