Get it down

Get down on it, get down on it..yeah, yeah....

Get it down 31 for 21 :)

Okay I am challenging myself to blog every day for 31 days for Trisomy 21 aka Down syndrome. October is Down syndrome awareness month and I think this is a wonderful way to get the word out on how great our beautiful kids, friends, family members etc. are. See the little green button to the left side? Click on that link and it will take you to some groovy bloggage about Down syndrome. I hope that I can live up the promise, I'll admit-- I'm skeered!!

Why Lord?

I know that we aren't supposed to question our Heavenly Father, but sometimes it is hard not to. Two precious little girls with Down syndrome have been diagnosed recently with Leukemia. After *my* Ashlyn licked infantile spasms, the big L word has always been a huge fear to me. I hold these two families of Ashlyn and Chelsea up in my prayers and hope that everyone who reads this will give God their prayers for peace and quick healing.

Here are two powerful songs that I hope that you will listen to and rememer that God has purpose for every trial that we go through. I found the wonderful talent of Rita Springer surfing through blogs. These songs give such hope to those of us who are hurting and in need of strength. Please listen! If you look to the left and scroll down until you see a orange and pink flash fetich audio player, click on the buttons that are two lines ll to pause the music that automatically loads and plays on my blog so that you can listen to the music from the videos!

*WARNING* for the video "the Cross or the Crowd" ... it has graphic video from "the Passion of the Christ" movie. If you are squeemish, close your eyes and just listen to the music. It is beautiful!

I Have to Believe

The Crowd or the Cross

Warning this video has *GRAPHIC* footage from "Passion of the Christ" If you are easily squeemish, close your eyes and listen to the beautiful music!
