Children Being Dropped Off In Nebraska

I’m reading this article on CNN about parents dropping their children off at various locations in Nebraska….mesmerized. http://www.cnn.com/2008/US/11/14/nebraska.safe.haven/index.html?iref=newssearch YOU MUST READ THIS STORY

I’ll admit as a parent it can be extremely difficult. However, the thought of leaving my child with total strangers is disturbing. How can it be? Children didn’t ask to come here. Many were born out the will of two adults.

Yes, there are things that happen such as rape. I don’t wish that upon anyone. But for the majority of births two grown folks knew exactly were they were doing. There must be other options for parents to avoid these beautiful gifts to the world being left without the certainty of care and compassion of a responsible adult.

Below are a few alternatives that come to mind about this awful trend that’s taking place as possible options for parents and guardians:

1. Speak with a church in Nebraska about available caretakers.

2. Speak with a church in Nebraska about residential services for a home if needed.

3. Speak with a church in Nebraska about financial assistance to continue provision of basic necessities.

4. Speak with a church in Nebraska about referral services.

5. Speak with a church in Nebraska regarding temporary options through any Health & Human Service agencies

Lay Aside The Weight

In light of everything that’s taking place in our economy. I think it’s really important that we self-examine to see if there is any place in our lives that need trimming. It’s very easy to point fingers at high earning CEOs with disgust as their companies crumble faster that Graham crackers in a new box. Yet, if we are honest with ourselves we very well would find waste in our own lives. Much of this is nothing more than exra stuff that’s not needed.Since  we are called to be the light of the world we have a mandate to ensure that there’s nothing that would prevent us from being just that. This weight, that diminishes the light, could be too much unhealthy eating, unnecessary shopping, self-pride, alcohol, dishonesty, illegal drugs, illicit sex, you name it- whatever it is. There is no little sin vs. big sin. Ask God to give you the strength to let it GO! Our words have power. So much so that with our tongue we can control life and death…check it out in the book of Proverbs!

Speak no more weights in your life. I know that’s why I’m doing. January- why wait for a New Year’s resolution. Get rid of it now.
That’s my story….and I’m sticking with it. What’s yours?

Imagine

When I imagine what It’s My Jax will look like this is what I see. Imagine….
…a place where you are welcomed and where warm friendly people greet you and help you find your way.

Imagine…
…a place where you and your children can develop lasting friendships and feel like part of a close family.

Imagine…
…a place where you can be encouraged and find answers to your deepest questions.

… a place where the teachings are relevant and sound and the music is meaningful and uplifting.

Imagine…
…a place where you can go be accepted just as you are.

…a place where you have an opportunity to develop your gifts and talents.

You don’t have to imagine anymore…..Launching September 2009.
