Gratitude for Amazing Wonder of Life this Thanksgiving

Posted in Carole OpEd, OP-Ed with tags , , , , , on November 29, 2015 by saynsumthn

At this time of year we often reflect on our blessings and we summarize all that the Divine Creator has done for us. But, as we try to recall all the ways we have been blessed, we should pause in gratitude for life itself. Often, we take for granted the beauty of life and the very complicated design that fashions our very core. The intimate and detailed way we were formed in the womb with the loving and tender hands of our Creator shows that the very essence of life is a gift beyond measure.

The human body is full of secrets we have yet to discover. The intricate details of every cell, organ and bone point to an ordered and intelligent designer who intended every human for a rich and complete purpose on this earth. The uniqueness of each individual forces us to step back in awe at the very suggestion that this could have taken place by chance, which of course, it did not. Each human person has been fashioned with expert precision in the womb to emerge and testify of amazing discoveries within the human body.

The human eye alone is so fascinating that when Armenian physics teacher Suren Manvelyan photographed the “window to the soul” he described them as the ‘surfaces of unknown planets.’

Medical Daily reports that our eyes can actually distinguish between 2.3 to 7.5 million colors. They say that when we put our hands together, we capture roughly the size of our heart as it beats 100,000/day, pumping 5.5 liters with each pulse, which is close to 3 million liters of blood every year. If a person were to live to 75, it would fill 90 Olympic size swimming pools, medical daily reported.

More amazing facts here.

Amazingly, just one drop of human blood contains about 10,000 white blood cells and 250,000 platelets and about 10,000 human cells can fit on the head of a pin. In addition, the human liver has an amazing ability to grow back if part of it is removed due to injury, disease, or surgery. It will even grow to be just the right size for the body it’s in.

According to Discovery, every seven years a healthy human body completely replaces every single bone cell which keeps our bones incredibly strong and uniquely adaptable. Pound for pound the Human bone is stronger than concrete. It has the strength to weight ratio found in no other known material on earth. It’s secret lies inside: it is a matrix of hollow cells, Discovery says. And surprisingly, half of our bone mass is soft and flexible not hard as would be expected.

The human lung sucks in 70 quarts of air each minute we exercise says, National Geographic. The lungs pull in oxygen from the air and deliver breadth to 1500 miles of airways. The human brain is describe by National Geographic as the most complex object on earth, containing up to 100 billion neurons and nerve cells.

The reproductive system creates new life, each human begins as two single cells, an egg cell from the mother and a sperm cell from the father. The fertilized egg carries the preborn baby’s genetic code. The genes are arranged in chains like a string of pearls called DNA.Every time a cell splits during the fetus’s development, it creates an identical copy of itself in each cell. Each cell carries the genetic code that holds all of the fetus’s traits. (SOURCE)

There are many additional facts like these and they all point to how fascinating the human body is. This is reason to be thankful. In a day when legalized abortion threatens the continuation of this miracle, we reflect with gratitude on life’s wonder. As we assemble with our families this Thanksgiving, as we watch parades and enjoy a meal full of bounty we can celebrate life by reflecting on the incredible design of every human person. We can show our gratitude by not taking life for granted and by protecting every life as the priceless gift of wonder that it truly is.

Hilarious prank: pregnant turkey

Posted in Video with tags , , , , on December 2, 2014 by saynsumthn

This is a hilarious prank a mother pulled on her daughter. She videos her as she tells her to remove the stuffing from the Thanksgiving turkey, until she finds this….and asks, “Why is there a turkey inside of a turkey?”

Pregnant Turkey

The girl starts crying thinking she killed a baby turkey as the family tells her, “It’s a prank.”

I guess she doesn’t know that turkeys lay eggs – they are not pregnant ! After mating, the females seek out a good nesting spot. Turkeys lay their eggs in ground nests. They choose nest areas that are covered by brush to help prevent detection by predators. The female turkeys lay an egg each day in their nest for up to 11 days. In about 28 days, the eggs hatch.

Planned Parenthood began seeking donations for the Holidays before Thanksgiving arrived as shown in this message the abortion giant tweeted November 13, 2014.

It reads, “In the spirit of the season, make a gift to support women and families…

Hmmm….if you really wanted to support families, you wouldn’t give to an organization that kills children, but, I digress!

PP Christmas Spirit of Season

The sex crazed tax funded organization continues their “stocking stuffers” suggestions which include condoms, sex kits, and a sex positive CD

In years past, Planned Parenthood has shown their bloody yuletide greed by hitting up their supporters for money at Christmas:

There was the Choice on Earth Christmas Cards:

Planned Parenthood’s president today compared Birth Control to Thanksgiving.

In a tweet she posted for National Thank Birth Control Day, Cecile Richards said, “Happy #ThxBirthControl Day—like Thanksgiving, but for birth control! Here’s why I’m thankful.”

Planned Parenthood to teens: build Condom Turkey for Thanksgiving

Posted in Condom, Planned Parenthood and teens, Planned Parenthood Thanksgiving, Sex Ed with tags , , , , , on December 5, 2013 by saynsumthn

According to STOPP, While families were gathered around their tables on Thanksgiving Day, Planned Parenthood reached directly into homes across the nation, stealing the attention of teens and turning it toward the perverse world of Planned Parenthood.

PP Condom Turkey

Planned Parenthood Info for Teens featured a do-it-yourself condom turkey meme on Thanksgiving. Notification arrived via portable mobile device to those who follow the page. The turkey, sporting condom feathers and a condom wattle, drew such comments as “At least it’s protected for the Thanksgiving ‘stuffing,’” and “Remember to protect yourselves, kids. . . Even if all you’re stuffing is a turkey.” One teen commented, “This is the kind of holiday I always dream of.” How many teens saw this while seated at Thanksgiving dinner?

PP Talking Turkey

And that’s not the only suggestion Planned Parenthood had for ruining the Thanksgiving holiday. It exhumed its Talking Turkey: 8 Easy Steps for Discussing Reproductive Health and Justice at the Holiday Table, warning, “Going home or getting together with relatives for the holidays is always a stressful time, but if your family members are the type who regularly protest outside the local Planned Parenthood, you know that this holiday is going to be a doozy.” But Planned Parenthood aficionados need not fear! Planned Parenthood coached them to regurgitate its propaganda at the Thanksgiving dinner table, while reassuring their wild-eyed pro-life relatives that their beliefs are “respected,” but whether someone has an abortion is really none of their business.
