Ephesians 3:16-18

I pray that from His glorious, unlimited resources He will empower you with inner strength through His Spirit. Then Christ will make His home in your
hearts as you trust in Him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is (Ephesians 3:16-18).

World Down Syndrome Day

"For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.  Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be" (Psalm 139:13-16). 
This guy melts my heart!  Chris Burke is an actor and consultant for The National Down Syndrome Society and an inspiration to all.

  I am thankful for such a happy faced little boy who has inspired his mommy to create Cenla DSA.

 Tonight my friends and I will join one of my favorite places in the world Splurge Frozen Yogurt in honor of World Down Syndrome Day!

Thank You for each child you create.  Thank You for special talents you place in all of us.  Thank You for the ability to overcome what the world sees as obstacles.  Thank You for placing people in my life who are passionate about promoting awareness and thank You for placing me in a profession where I have the privilege to work with those who bless my heart and the heart of others. In Jesus name I pray, amen.

A special thanks to MandyFaith, and all the others who support Cenla DSA! 

If you have a moment watch this heart warming video!

Isn't it crazy how they're seen as horrible and easily destroy-able or forgotten? Where when the mom gets tested to find out her baby will have down syndrome, they'll be asked if they want to terminate?

Its sad. There are many great people out there with forms of down syndrome, that are worthy of life.

This looks like a great organization. Have fun eating yogurt!
