Red Enveope Day - March 31, 2009

Have you heard of Red Envelope Day? Recently I came across this site that has initiated a movement to send empty red envelopes are to the White House on March 31st with a message stating it's representation of one life lost to abortion. (Click on the above link and then click on the Participate tab at the top of the page.)

I am participating in this small way to send a big statement to President Obama: I do not agree with his policies regarding abortion. I believe that Melinda from Traveling the Road Home said it best:

The very fabric of our value system is being threatened, friends. Things with which we thought we'd never have to be concerned are suddenly being called into question: our tax dollars being used to murder; our pro-life doctors being forced to perform the heinous acts that go against the Hippocratic Oath they've sworn to uphold. Where is the "choice" in all this?

Dear Reader, I do not usually get all up in faces about my beliefs, but this issue is too important to not take a public stand. Please, understand that this is not a political issue. It's a moral one. An issue that tends to be divisive because whatever side you stand on the issue, it helps define you.

I understand that we are all convicted of different things at different times. So, I am not being judgemental for those of you who have differing beliefs. Just taking a strong stand on this issue. And refusing to keep my mouth shut about it.

And may I just remind you of one thing more? Doing nothing is making a choice too.

Praying that eyes will be opened,


  1. Thank you SO much for your support of the prayer team and for taking a stand on this topic!

    Blessings on you this day!

  2. Thanks for the info on this... I will have to send a letter too. Now.. if I can only find a red envelope around here somewhere!!
