Thanksgiving Thoughts: When Life Gives You More Lemons...

It seems that  all those 'lemons' thrown at me and my family in 2016 aren't quite done yet.  

Take my younger brother, for instance...

Human Life Is Beautiful

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations.” Jeremiah 1:5

Last December 12, I was up until 2 AM listening to the nominal voting of the RH Bill in the House of Representatives. Listening to our representatives both pro and anti-RH Bill, I was appalled by the line of reasoning of some of them. Some of the arguments used by those who voted NO are shallow and self-serving, like our economy is dependent upon OFW remittances and populating the earth with Filipinos. While those proponents of the bill (YES) have convinced themselves that too many Filipinos will be the destruction of our society, that the only way to solve poverty, prevent maternal and child death and espouse women's rights is to promote a contraceptive mentality amongst our people. They have convinced themselves that they are doing this for the Filipino nation, exercising sovereignty and the separation of church and state by not being influenced by religion, yet are willing to be influenced by foreign funding agencies. They seem to have conveniently forgotten the fact that the RH Bill was introduced because the Philippines does not have an enabling law on population control, which is part of the fulfillment of the Millennium Development Goals (MDG), the UN and the US (aka USAID).  So what sovereignty are they talking about?  And isn't it that obedience to God comes before obedience to man?  The final count on the second reading was 113 for Yes and 104 for No.  I felt sad and suddenly fearful for the future.
