Aborted babies used to develop vaccines..read it here

Well, I think it is time that I post about this. I keep hearing from folks, when I say, "There are fetal cells in vaccines," they say "I've never heard of that." And judging from facial expression and tone, what they mean is, "So it must not be true."
And honestly, I am terribly upset that I didn't know this information when making vaccine choices for Brilyn and Cade. I want to spread the word to help other parents make informed decisions.
A new article was just published today. It talks about the link between the fetal cells in vaccines with the rise of autism. That is not my main concern, but it covers that topic as well as the plain and simple fact that vaccines do, in fact, contain cell lines "derived from the bodies of aborted children.”


Here's the website, and here's the article (below) for you non-clickers.

Study Confirms Autism Boom - Correlates with Aborted Fetal DNA in Vaccines
By John Jalsevac


Washington, DC, April 20, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) – A recent study by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has confirmed 1988 as a “change point” in the rise of Autism Disorder rates in the U.S. - a date that pro-life leaders say correlates with the introduction of fetal cells for use in vaccines.

While the EPA study does not speculate into the cause of the jump in autism rates, and makes no mention of aborted fetal cells, the researchers point out that it “is important to determine whether a preventable exposure to an environmental factor may be associated with the increase.”

According to the pro-life group Sound Choice Pharmaceutical Institute (SCPI), which specializes in vaccine research, that “environmental factor” may well be the use of aborted fetal cells in vaccines.

The group pointed out in its most recent newsletter that 1988 is the same year the U.S. Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices began recommending a second dose of the MMR vaccine, which included cells derived from the tissue of aborted babies.

Analyses of autism rate data published by SCPI identify 3 clear change points in U.S. autism disorder trends: 1981, 1988 and 1995, all of which the groups claims roughly correlate with the use of vaccines (Meruvax, MMRII, and Chickenpox) that were cultivated with the use of tissue from aborted children. The group says that it has been unable to identify any other factor that might correlate to the change in autism rates.

“The only environmental event correlating with these statistical autism trend ‘change points’ which would impact almost all children was the introduction of vaccines produced using human fetal cells and containing residual human DNA and cellular debris,” said SCPI.

Pro-life groups say that the research by EPA adds to an increasing body of evidence implicating the use of aborted fetal cell material in the nationwide vaccinations impacting nearly every child born in the United States.

American Life League has joined Sound Choice Pharmaceutical Institute in calling for a Fair Labeling and Informed Consent Act in light of the findings.

“For years the evidence has pointed toward the link between vaccines using DNA from aborted babies and the rise of Autism Disorder rates,” said Jim Sedlak, vice president of American Life League.

"Parents need and deserve to know the risks associated with vaccinations made from lines derived from the bodies of aborted children.”

SCPI has affirmed that they are continuing to study the impact of residual human fetal DNA in vaccines on the brain development and autism in children, and will present their studies at the International Society for Autism Research in May 2010.

And now, for the chart I showed my pediatrician:
http://www.cogforlife.org/
Click on the 'vaccine sources' listed on the left.
Feel free to peruse the entire site, you'll find it to be worth your time. The part I found most convincing were the actual Manufacturer's package inserts describing the fetal cell lines.

Let me just say that my pediatrician was very concerned. And? SHE DIDN'T KNOW! She kept asking, "How did I not know about this? Why didn't they tell me in med school? Or during my residency?"
And then she started asking, "What am I going to do about this?" Because her office is a part of Strong and they won't order special moral vaccines those of us who are appalled by this. They order from the company that gives them the best deal. Period.

So, I am doing my part today to inform folks about what is in vaccines. Because, if my child's doctor didn't know I bet there are a bunch of regular folks out there who have no idea.

So. Now I've done it. I've put it all out there. I would ask that you spread the word. Because, like I said before; I wish had known. I would never have chosen to inject the cells of murdered babies into my own babies.

Trouble

I found this poem in my 'pile.' You know what I mean.
The Thing that grows and grows and eventually takes over your desk and buries your computer. That's what happened. I closed my lap top and it disappeared under the Pile.
So. I went through the Pile. And I found a poem I wrote, oh, up to a year ago. Yep. That long. I let the Pile grow That Long.
Anyway, the second page is missing, but I don't want to lose the page I have, so I am writing it down here.

In this world
You Will Have Trouble
Grief and pain
sickness and strife
will come your way
Don't let it be
a surprise.
Don't let Satan convince you that God has
forgotten you
Abandoned you
withheld His protection
from your path.
In this world
you will have trouble.
Following Christ
will not lead you
down Easy Street.
Your path is straight
But narrow
Sometimes it will be
hard to find.
Do not despair!
The path is there
beneath your feet
Follow the lead
of that kindly light.
No matter how dim
it may appear through your veil of tears.
Because this path
leads to Hope!
Rejoice in your suffering
it is the Way to hope.
Travel that road
from suffering to perseverance
from perseverence to character
from character to Hope
Hope!
Hope that does not disappoint.

XOXO

Be bold!

I am in a hurry. But I wanted to post.
Today I was encouraged by a song I learned a long time ago. It goes like this:
Be bold! And be strong.
Banish fear and doubt.
For the promise of our God
Is of blessings coming in and of blessings going out.
Rejoice! Rejoice! Rejoice! Rejoice!
I just want to impress upon all the mommies out there that teaching your children Christian songs is really a wonderful way to allow the Holy Spirit to work in them later in life. The songs may not be your idea of awesome music to jam to, but they are working in your child's heart (and yours).
The same with scripture memorization. It is amazing how the Holy Spirit uses verses I have hidden in my heart to help me on my way.
Help your children learn verses, and learn some more for yourself while you are at it!
Proverbs 22:6 (New International Version)
6 Train [a] a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.

Well, I really really really have to put my peas and lettuce in if I want to eat anything green anytime soon.

My Day: An Overview and an Excerpt

I would like to share my daily schedule for two reasons-
1. I would like to solidify some of the things I have found that work.
2. It might help someone else with their daily routine.

The times are relative- if small people decide to sleep in, I do not wake them. :)
6:30- Get up, get dressed, milk.
7:00-Process milk
7:15 Feed baby
7:30 Feed two kids
8:00 Clean up kitchen, straighten up downstairs
8:30 Make my breakfast, help kids clean up playroom,
9:00 SuperWHY! And I eat and do my devotions, make list of things to do today.
9:30 Kids get dressed, clean up their room, I straighten up the upstairs. Then the kids do morning chores: Brilyn does the breakfast dishes, Cade vaccuums under the table.
10:00 Kids go outside, I feed the baby, and then I do some Big Jobs-like vaccuuming, make cheese and bread, or sort through bags of kids clothes, etc.
11:30 Lunch
12:00 Read aloud and nap for kids, clean-up the downstairs again, do phone calls, emails, eat my lunch, play with baby
1:00 Feed the baby, take a nap
2:00 Choose supper, get it started, finish list, do school with Brilyn
3:00 Cade wakes up, spend time with him.
4:00 Joe comes home, kids go back outside, I feed the baby, and then do a job like sewing or something else that requires quiet
6:00 Supper
6:45 Feed the baby
7:00 Milk
7:30 Kids to bed
8:00 Time with Joe
8:30 Eat ice cream
8:45 Shower
9:00 Feed the baby, Bed

That's the main idea, I will add more as it comes to me.

XOXO
Joce

And, now for some Cade humor.

Narrator: Cade and Brilyn are playing out on the deck. Brilyn comes in to use the bathroom, Cade follows. Mommy notices he is eating something. A huge mouthful of something.

M-"Cade, what are you eating?"
C-"Dis." Holds out handful of grass/weeds.
M-"What is that?"
C-"Gwass"
M-"Why are you eating grass?"
C-"Brannan div it to me"
M-"Brilyn, why is Cade eating grass?"
B-"He's the animals in the zoo and I am the zookeeper."

Mommy pauses here to think the thought- No, I am the zookeeper around here. Goodness gracious.

Continue conversation:
M-"It is not okay to eat plants you pick outside unless mommy says it is okay. Like, you may eat the onion plants because mommy showed you."
M-"Look at me. What are you allowed you eat?"
C-"Pizza?"
M-"Hmm (smirk). Well, what shouldn't you eat?"
B-"The picnic benches? HAHAHAHAHAHA!"
M-"Don't eat grass. The end."
The end.

Crazy Giveaway

Jocelyn, a servant of Jesus Christ
To those who have been called, who are loved by God the Father and kept by Jesus Christ:
Mercy, peace and love be yours in abundance.

So I have been talking a lot about the book, Crazy Love, by Francis Chan.
Why do I talk about it so much? Because the Holy Spirit has been using it to change my life. You know, the way I live. I have a desire to love people. Because I now understand in my heart that to love Christ and to be obedient to Him is to love people.
I have had 1 Corinthians 13 memorized since I was what, 14? And it has suddenly become so much more than a nice thing hear at weddings.
Read this, and listen with your heart:
1 Corinthians 13
Love
1If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. 3If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing.

Dude, if you don't have LOVE, you don't have (much) Jesus. How could I have been missing that for so long? I am a 22-year-old Christian. And this LOVE stuff is just now sinking into my heart in a way that is changing me.

And so, I am excited about it. God has used this book in a crazy way in my life.
I would like to give one away to you, my readers. Just in case you are intrigued by my sudden obsession with living as Jesus calls us to live and want to read it for yourself.



So. I need this from you. On your blog or FB or whatever: A link to your favorite post here from February 25th to today and a link to crazylovebook.com, and a comment here to let me know you did that.

To him who is able to keep you from falling and to present you before his glorious presence without fault and with great joy— to the only God our Savior be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and forevermore! Amen.

XOXO, (aka LOVE)

Solo mission

So, Joe got what I had. And it was no good for him. He didn't drink the super duper drink...and he should have.
So. I was left to man the battle stations.
Let it be chronicled here that I milked Clara all by myself, start to finish. 2 whole gallons, thanks to the new green grass. You may not think that is all that big of a deal, and it is not, physically. I have been able to do it for a while.
It was a mental victory. Because, some of you may remember the last time I milked by myself.
So. It was good.

And then, since Joe wasn't quite up to eating yet (he really should have drank his garlic and pepper broth, I made a supper just for me. You know, things I like to eat and to heck with the meat. (Dont worry, I let the kids eat, too).

Fresh honey oat bread and cream of potato and cabbage soup. Mmmm. It was rainy and windy out, so double yum.

Recipe for soup:
In a large pot-Saute a chopped onion and two minced cloves of garlic in about 2 T bacon grease. (Whenever I fry bacon, I pour the leftover bacon grease in a coffee cup and keep in the fridge for frying. It saves me a ton of money on butter and adds rich flavor to whatever I fry. Imagine how good my fried eggs sandwiches are.) Add some cubed potato (8 medium, peeled) and shredded cabbage (about a half a head). Let the flavors mingle a bit, and then add 4 cups of chicken broth (enough to just cover the potatoes and cabbage). Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer and let cook until the cabbage is just tender. Mix together 2 T of flour with 1 C milk, add to pot. Return to boil, then reduce to simmer. Let it bubble until thickened. Don't forget to stir it. Add some spices- like salt, pepper, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder...until it tastes good to you.

Recipe for bread:
3 C occident flour (or all-purpose flour)
1 C buckwheat flour (or any kind of flour you have on hand)
1 C oats
2 t yeast
1 1/2 t salt
1 egg
2-3 T honey
10 ounces of milk
2 T butter
I used a bread machine on dough setting. When it beeped, I made two loaves in greased loaf pans, let them rise on the back of my hot stove for, oh, 20 minutes (till doubled in size), and then baked at 350 for 25 minutes. YUM.

From the book...

Forgotten God: Reversing Our Tragic Neglect of the Holy Spirit. By Francis Chan
p. 37
"It really is an astounding truth that the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead lives in you. He lives in me. I do not know what the Spirit will do or where He'll lead me each time I invite Him to guide me. But I am tired of living in a way that looks exactly like people who do not have the Holy Spirit of God living in them. I want to consistently live with an awareness of His strength. I want to be different today from what I was yesterday as the fruit of the Spirit becomes more manifest in me."
(Big bold type added by me)

I am finding it easier and easier to relinquish my hold on my life- my time, my money, my kids- as I give them up to God and find that He is faithful. I am safest when God is in control. I am strongest when God's strength is made perfect in my weakness. How did I discover this? By trusting Him enough to hand some things over to His control and then finding that His way is better than my way. Take a step out in faith, give something you love to God, and find that He will keep you and your stuff in the palm of His hand.

Now that I have learned to trust God, that all He has for me is good, I can give more and more of myself to Him. And in its place? I get more of HIM! And that is from whence the good stuff comes. He is using ME!?! To do His awesome work! And it is better than crack anything this world has to offer.

Keep your nose clean, kid

So, I have some post nasal drip working this week. (Yeah, its gross, sorry to offend.)
But, the good news is, I have some tips and tricks that work.
1. Neti pot/ saline rinse. Just try it next time your face feels like it is going to explode.
2. Peppermint oil all over your head- well at least wherever you feel pressure. (Use it above your eyes only, think Vicks VapoRub).
3. Make yourself a little broth that goes like this: Mince and saute a variety of peppers, onions, and garlic. Then, add one tablespoon of that mixture to a mug. Add 1/8-1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (as much as you can stand) and 1 teaspoon chicken bouillon. Pour boiling water over it, let it steep for 10 minutes, drink it. Eat the garlic/onion/pepper mix too, if you can.
Easy version (not as potent, but works) In a mug combine 1/2 t garlic powder, 1/2 t onion powder, 1 teaspoon chicken bouillon, and 1/8-1/2 t cayenne pepper, pour boiling water over it. Drink it.

Feel better.

XOXO

Bubble gum, bubble gum in a dish. How many babies do you wish?

Well, I have finally found a statement that reflects my beliefs on birth control and family planning.
From chemical birth control (with which I do NOT agree) to the QuiverFull train of thought (which I find intriguing, but, not for me) I have been searching for that which I think God is in favor and which is the best for me, my husband, and our family.

When it comes down to it, I think any of the chemical birth controls are a bad choice. From the health concerns and side effects, to the fact that if all else fails they are abortaficients (harden the uterine wall to prevent implantation of the baby) I consider them to be inferior- physically and morally.

But, I also do not feel that it is wise to have a baby a year- which is pretty much what I would get if we ignored the matter all together. I like to have the opportunity to nurse my babies until they are two. (I know you can nurse and be pregnant at the same time, and you can tandem nurse siblings, but that can cause serious health problems for mommy. ie- They suck the life out of you.) So, for me, 2-3 years apart is what I consider natural spacing.

So, now for the official statement.

"A married couple seeking the will of God makes a genuine commitment to always include His will in their marital relations. Natural family planning is God's plan for naturally spacing children that respects a female's natural rhythmic cycle."
~Celebrate Life March April 2010.

"The choice of the natural rhythms involves accepting the cycle of the woman, and thereby accepting dialogue, reciprocal respect, shared responsibility, and self-control (by husband and wife)...In this way sexuality is respected and promoted in its truly and fully human dimension and is never used as an object."
~Pope John Paul II

I am glad to have found it put so concisely and clearly.

For more info on Natural Family Planning, go ahead and google:
BOM, Creighton, Couple to Couple League, and Marquette methods.

And for more info on the Pill: http://www.thepillkills.org/

I believe that family planning is an important issue that requires a lot of thought. There are critical moral, spiritual, and health concerns with the various choices available.
I like natural family planning because it is respectful of the woman, does not involve adding dangerous chemicals to our bodies, and is helpful in naturally spacing children while still embracing a married couples' fertility and God's desire to bless us with children.
