Hi all. Thank you so much for visiting my blog and walking with me. It has been a great advanture. I’ve enjoyed all the comments. Today I just want to notife you all that I will not be posting here any more. I’ve moved my blog to Expressgod.com. You can join me there. Thanks for all your support and encouragement again. I appreciate it.
I just want to show my appreciation to you all today for coming to my blog. If you’ve been following my blog, this is my thank you note to you. Your visit really encourages me to continue to keep sharing my little knowledge that might not even worth sharing. I know I’m behind as far as knowledge goes (concerning God) compare to some of you, but I just love sharing my thought and perspective even from where I’m at. And you’ve made this blog the place to do that.
One of my favorite parts of the whole journey is the comments. They are where growth happens, and views are challenged. Sometimes it’s not easy but it’s good. They are like vegetable—as a kid it tastes nasty—you don’t want to eat it but it’s good for you. I love every single one of them, the ones that agree and those that disagree alike. At times, the ones that challenge my perception are the best ones, because they actually benefit me more. So keep sharing your knowledge and lets all grow together.
When I’m sharing my perspective on things, it’s not by any means supreme or absolute.
9For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears. 11When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me. 12Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known. 1 Corth. 13:9-12
This is why I actually got a blog. Blog offers something more, like the ability to discuss and grow from others knowledge. Static website can’t do that. So thanks again everyone, for participating in the conversations or just reading. It means a lot.

This is a true story…no, actually, a kind act that turned a $93 into $100,000.
I stumbled on a story today. It started out with two women who are strangers. One woman lost her wallet and was at a lost in a check-out line. While unable to pay for her groceries, the other woman decided to take her tab. This is a remarkable story that turns $93 into a $100,000. Check it out for yourself, see how far and how big a little kindness can morph into.

To those who are against abortion….
How can we stop abortion?
If you’re on this page becuase you’re trying to find ways to stop abortion, you are not the only one. A lot of people are too, people that understand what abortion really is. This is just my 2 sense of where we can start to be effective in putting an end to abortion. I believe it all starts with educating ourselves.
Can we stop abortion completely?
Will we put an end to abortion completely? I don’t think so. But we can do things to reduce the number of killings and make awareness of the issue so people can make their decision a little differently. This post consists of stuff I’m learning on the way as I try to do my part in stopping abortion. I also want to encourage brainstorming because I know there are other ways we can go about stopping abortion. So feel free to share what you think might work to stop abortion.
So what is abortion?
Abortion is the termination of a pregnancy after, accompanied by, or closely followed by the death of the embryo or fetus; especially: the medical procedure of inducing expulsion of a human fetus to terminate a pregnancy. (Merriam-Webster’s Medical Dictionary, © 2002 Merriam-Webster, Inc.)
Where I stand on Abortion?
I’m against abortion and I find no justification for killing a baby, especially for social reasons such as (not ready, unexpected). I’m sure some will disagree with; nevertheless, I have the right to disagree with them as well. And I find no reason to sit back and watch while what I deem wrong take place and do nothing about it. To completely know where I’m coming from, read Why I like to write about abortion.
So in my objection to abortion, I start educating myself on this issue, and I started to share my knowledge in this blog. But like I said before, there are many ways to stop Abortion. You probably can come up with few. However I believe one of the most effective ways to stop abortion starts with educating self. Then going forth and making awareness by providing information for others.
I believe if people know what is really taking place when abortion is being carried out, people will go about their decision a little differently. This is how we can stop abortion: First we must educate ourselves. Then make knowledge available for others.

Second trimester abortion is an abortion done between 13 to 24 weeks of pregnancy. There are reasons why more women decide to do this. The process of second trimester abortion may need more days to perform…An average of 2 to 3 days because of the requirement of the procedure.
For a second trimester abortion, they use a process call dilation and evacuation, which includes a combination of vacuum and surgical instruments. Read more here about the process of a second trimester abortion. Now it is know in the second trimester of pregnancy, all the virtual organs of thebabies are developed. At this point they can feel pain. It’s hard to imagine the baby going through this process.
But since abortion is legal in U.S, women have the right to terminate a baby she carries at anytime during her pregnancy for any reason. And a lot more women choose to abort babies for social reasons (not ready or unexpected). It is hard to say social reason is a good enough reason to kill. It is simply hard to justify taking life for that reason.

Teenage Abortion in U.S
In the United States, teenage abortion is legal in all 50 states. Some require parental consent while others does not. So far, there are more than 20 states that require no parental permission for a teen to go through abortion, a number too high for kids at that age to make decision something that big.
However, many have fought for states to enact a parental permission law because parent want to protect their children by choosing to allow their teen to go with birthing their babies instate of choosing to allow their teens to go along with abortion. There are now over 29 states that have made parental constant laws. And among them, there shown to be declines in teenage abortion.
Effect of teen abortion
Teenage abortion has long lasting effects. Risks rang from physical to emotional to psychological. And the greatest risk of abortion is death. Ultimately, however, the decision of abortion falls on you. That’s why it is important to educate yourself about abortion. Because whether you choose to give birth to your baby or abort is a decision that is not short lived. It’ll affects affect you life time, because you have to live with the decision until you die.
Educate yourself with abortion
The hardest thing with the decision to choose to give your baby a chance to live or not is not an easy one. Because regardless of your decision—whether it’s birth or not—will people around you will both be supported and condemn you. You won’t be able to please everyone. The best thing to do is educate yourself about this issue so your decision can be informed. You need informed decision to make the right and the best choice for you and your baby. It is difficult because there is no turning back. Once it’s done, its’ done. There is no turning back, whatever you decide to do, that you will live with.
Two of the most popular reasons for teen abortion is not being able to afford a baby, and not feeling mature or responsible enough to raise a child. If you are stressing with these two issues, there is hope. You have other options—believe it or not—besides abortion. You can give your baby up for adoption. Adoption is a great option in fact, if you don’t want or don’t think you are ready for a baby. They will thank you later (greatly) for giving them a chance to life. So consider your options.
What determines abortion cost is the stage of pregnancy at which abortion is preformed. It is determine that earlier abortion is less complicate so it cost less. And later abortion has more complication so the cost is proportional to expected complication. In 1995, it was estimate that the cost of abortion was $200 to $400 for early abortion; and for late abortion, the cost is between $ 400. After the 16th week, however, the price jumps up $ 100 a week.
[Source: "Susan Dudley, Ph.D. "Economics of Abortion" National Abortion Federation 1996]
Another things that determines the cost of abortion is the procedure and clinic that provides the service. Surgical abortion seems to cost more, and a lot more after the certain time frame (later) do to more complication. Now first trimester procedures cost ranges from$ 500 to $ 1000. The second trimester cost range from $ 600 to $ 10,000 dollars. And some insurance plan covers this.
There are also some subsidies available for abortion costs. In 2001, Guttmacher Institute conducted a study to determine the average cost for abortion in the U.S. They determine that the average cost to be $468. This number has most likely increased due to inflation. But when subsidies were included, the average cost for abortion in the U.S drops to $372.
In compression, adoption and abortion cost are susbtantionally different. Though adoption has variety of facts that determines costs just like abortion, it is significantly more expansive that abortion. This is sad when you consider what each side is doing; almost twist when you think about it really. According to cost, it seems abortion is being rewarded while adoption is not.
Before the federal tax credit, average adoption cost in the U.S is between 25,000 to $35,000.

Abortion is an ongoing issue which will eventually affect everyone in some way. I write about it because I’m against abortion, and I believe I can raise awareness this way. Not to mention I have the right to do so. In a way I’m protesting. It makes no sense to see abortion taking place while I do nothing about it even though I’m against it. I’m aware of other methods to fight this issue, but I believe I’m supposed to take this approach.
There are three goals I’m trying to accomplish by doing this. I want to raise abortion awareness, have information for those wanting to educate themselves about abortion or at least point them to the information, and I want to have a place for those who are against this same issue to express their views as to why they feel that way.
I have passion for this issue, so when I write about it, my passion will be express in my words. No matter how I come across, however, I’m not condemning a person. My beef is with abortion not people. Even if you’re pro-choice, I have nothing against you but everything against abortion. And it is possible to condemn an issue without condemning a person doing it.
For example, I’m a sinner yet loved by God. Though He hates sin He love sinners (me). That’s how I go about this, and that’s how I see this issue. The same way He can love me and condemn my sin is how I view the issue of abortion. Not people. An abortion for social reason (not ready, unplanned) is unjustifiable. You cannot justify taking a life in that way. And I simply write to make that known.

A friend and I were talking about destiny the other day. We were discussing destiny, pertaining to whether it is already made or one makes it. I thought this would be a good topic to discus and get others view on. Because, I honestly believe that growth can sometimes come from disagreement.
When the thing you believe and deem as right is challenged, it forces you to ponder and review it; it also make you weight what the other person is saying. This in my opinion is a good ground for growth.
So what is your take on destiny? Do you think your destiny is already made and you are here to discover it, or do you believe you make your destiny by decisions you make and your everyday choice? Because as we were discussing the matter, both sides of the argument became seems to be right when were supported.
Explain why you believe one or the other. And some might even believe it is both ways. But why do you believe that?
