Abortion which I once supported is what it is and that is the murder of innocent life. I love to hear and read about people who should not be living in this world due to abortion. Molly Anne Dutton’s life came into being under the worst circumstances. She is a product of rape and is thankful her birth mother chose life over abortion, even though the husband’s ultimatum was abortion or divorce.
Molly Anne Dutton never forgot what her birth mother did for her who worked with a Christian adoption group called Lifeline Children’s Services while pregnant from rape. A married couple who served on Lifeline’s board, took steps right away to adopt Ms. Dutton at birth. She is the youngest in a family which includes other adoptive children.
Today Ms. Dutton is horticultural major at Auburn University where she ran on the platform of adoption advocacy and won the Homecoming Queen title. Molly Anne Dutton says that she “was given grace to carry that story,” as her “story is a voice for the voiceless.”

I am praying for all the Firefighters’ Precious Family and Friends ♥
Congratulations to my twin nieces who graduated high school Wednesday, June 19, 2013. It was a gorgeous non humid bright sunny day for the outside graduation ceremony. There were close to 1000 graduating. The class leaders announced each graduate’s name as they received their diploma. Even with the speeches, the ceremony was not dull or drawn out. It was absolutely beautiful.
I have been a 2nd mom to my twin nieces, as we have always lived in the same household. Time has truly flown by. It does not seem that long ago that the were born 2 months premature. They are such a joy! God bless them both as they continue their academic career in meeting the challenges of college.
The righteous man walks in his integrity;
His children are blessed after him.
My late father was absolutely the greatest. He was an excellent family man. I am around many people today and even going back some years who do not know what it is like to be raised by a man like my father. He struck the right cord in the household growing up. He was not rigid and dictatorial. He commanded respect without demanding it. I could always talk to him.
My father was very friendly. I remember him talking to a couple of my 5th grade classmates who did not know I was his daughter. When they found out he was my father, I was told of him being so nice and being so handsome. When I run into men who grew up in the neighborhood, they talk of how my father stopped his outside work around the house to talk to them and how they appreciated and learned from those talks. He once mentioned when I was in my late teens how he eventually made peace with a person on his job that did not like him. I wondered how could anybody not like my father!
On my Facebook page, a former church member of my former Philly church commented on my father’s love for music and singing. He sang tenor and did solos. He especially loved sacred music and traditional hymns. The hymn for this Sunday music post is O For A Thousand Tongues To Sing. My father thought he knew all the hymns. So it surprised him to hear this hymn for the first time in the 1980s. He loved it right away.
