Thoughts for life PASTOR AT LARGE Information Provided By Local MCCL Women have the right to an abortion said the Supreme Court 25 years ago and President Clinton now with Partial Birth Abortion. Shouldn't God have a voice in this? Is a fetus just some of the woman's blood and matter? You and I were in that womb too and we have our own soul, not part of our mother's. A mother has the wonderful privilege of carrying that baby. Please, please understand.

Happy are the kind and merciful, for shall be shown mercy. Happy are those whose hearts are they shall see God. Happy are those who strive for peace shall be called the sons of God." Matthew 5:6-9, The Livinc A small card given to me by a friend bears the f, message : "Happiness is for those who do not expect it at every moment - who receive it as a gift and who know how to live without it at times." In your quest for happiness, do not expect to be happy times. The reality is that we cannot always be happy. Every will experience their share of sadness and pain. Rather than expecting happiness as a human right, look happiness as a gift. Let your response to happiness be like of a surprise party in your honor or the feeling of awe and experienced when coming upon an unexpectedbeauty. Learn to cope with life as it is at any given moment. with the business of living, even when the gift of hap passed you by. In seeking happiness effort is important, however effort will not guarantee happiness. The happiness which you seek may come as a surprise - perhaps it is just around the next the road. Reflect on the following from Hawthorne: .  "Happiness is a butterfly, which when pursued, is always beyond your grasp, but which, i if you will sit down quietly may alight upon you."  i:i;ii i i  iiiii! i i:iii: i: i: iii :a::..'::;! !!aii-i ?i: ii: :: i:*:,:::::::: :: ::: :: ::: :: :::::: ................................................  .....................................................................................................
