The Norblad Hotel in Astoria Oregon

 


We went to Astoria this week to clean the family graves and put new flowers out. So I decided we needed to stay in one of the historical hotels, the Norblad Hotel. It is downtown, so easy to walk to eaterys and see what the downtown offers. It was very cool.

Some of their rooms share the communal bathrooms/showers and some have private. We got a room with a private bath.



We could see the top of the Astoria Column from our room!!! Very cool!!!



We took a walk after dinner into downtown just to look in the windows and give me time to remember the good old days when I was much younger.


This is the Liberty Theatre. I have many fond memories of many movies there as a young child all the way through high school!!!


Below are views from our room!!! 


Notice the barrels in the windows above??????? Fort George Brewery is across the street. They have beer and food, the perfect combination for a lovely visit to Astoria.



This is our room below, great views and a hanging chair!!! So fun!!! And one more thing they had was record players to borrow and lots of albums to choose from!!! That was fun too. We listened to music in the evening while just lounging, so needed!!!

Below is our work at the cemetery!!






It was a good quick trip to home and I really look forward to the next time we go. If you have a chance to check out the Norblad, do so, they are very kind  and courteous there!!!


Till we meet again, martha

PRO-CHOICE=PRO-ABORTION

 There is no doubt that pro-choice is equal to pro-abortion.

Advocates of pro-choice hold on to the belief of:

my body-my choice

They totally ignore the fact

that there are two bodies!

turning your back on the truth does not change the outcome

saying you are prochoice and saying that means that no matter what your personal feelings or beliefs about abortion are, you understand it is not your place to make a decison for another woman about what she can and can't do with her body is a cop out.

they turn their back on the millions of children who are brutally murdered from abortion

this is not how you support women

this is not how you support mothers

this is not how you support the family

this is not how you support children

this is not how you support the human race


You can be a Woman and a supporter of WOMEN AND PROLIFE!!!

check them out!!!

Feminists For Life

There is hope if we work together.


But killing innocent children is not the answer.

Lent has begun for 2021-Let's Pray together to save the Family

 


During the 40+ days of Lent we are called to Prayer, Fasting/Sacrifice, and Almsgiving/Works of Love.

Let us join our hearts together and pray for the families who are facing difficult decisions about their unborn children.

Let us pray for empowerment, strength, and Love for this new life gifted from God above.


Women are being told by our government leaders, Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Nancy Pelosi, Hilary Clinton, and many many others, that they cannot do what they have been born to do if they carry these children to term and give them life.

That is a lie. How many of us have children and continued to journey on God's plan laid out for us?

I gave birth to our children at a young age and continued on my journey to become an RN. Our children are healthy and happy, have had children of their own, and are working full time. I am in my 38th year of nursing. God blessed us with our children and we are thankful!!!!


Our unborn children and their families need our prayers. You can email or write to the people above and tell them how you feel about their mandates on abortion. It will take all of us to stop this tragedy against our most vulnerable citizens.

God Bless you all for caring and thank you.

Let's Pray Together PrayerChain-ProLife-Be doers of the Word


photo borrowed from the March for Life 2020 Washington DC

James 1:22  "Be doers of the word and not hearers only, deluding yourselves."

My Dear Lord Jesus Christ,

I thank you for calling me and so many others to stand up for our unborn children. You have given us the courage and strength to give our children a voice and presence in a world who has turned blind and deaf to their humanity. I pray, Dear Lord, that your voice and love is heard through our actions. I pray that your message permeates into their hearts, their minds and their souls, and together we can become one and save our little ones and in the process, save their families.

Thank you for prayers answered, Amen.

When I woke up this morning the word "Flood" entered my mind. I saw a picture of water and sky.

Yes, I thought, flood. God flooded the world because of all the sin in the world. And now it is our turn to do the same.

We are to flood the world with Prayer, flood the world with Love, flood the world with the Word of God. 

Together, we can FLOOD the world to make change!!!

Before Jesus left this world he said,

 "But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, throughout Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth."

The Holy Spirit resides within us. It is up to us to listen and be guided by him.

James 1:17 all good giving and every perfect gift* is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no alteration or shadow caused by change.


Let us Pray

My Dear Lord,

Thank you for this day you have given us and this beautiful world that surrounds us. Your gifts to us are endless and we are grateful.

I ask, Dear Lord, to send Your Word, Your Love and Your Mercy into the hearts of all peoples in our entire world so they too can enjoy your Joy and Forgiving Grace. 

I Pray, Dear Lord, that you open their minds, their hearts and their souls to our suffering brothers and sisters and learn from you humility and a deep Love for all.

Please, Dear Lord, show me how I can make a difference in my own home, in my commuity, and in my world to spread your Word.

I ask these things through Jesus Christ Our Lord, Amen. Thank you God!!!


God Bless you Friends, take  care, have a happy day and I will see you soon again!!! Martha

 President Biden authorizes the murders of the unborn in poor countries paid by American taxpayers


Rather than support women and help them when in need he, like many in his army, think that killing the children is the answer. 

He needs our prayers as he has succumbed to the evil one.

The bible makes it perfectly clear that if you encourage another to sin, and this is considered a grave sin, a mortal sin, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven.

The Greatest in the Kingdom.

1a At that time the disciples* approached Jesus and said, “Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?”
2He called a child over, placed it in their midst,
3b and said, “Amen, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children,* you will not enter the kingdom of heaven.
4c Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
5* And whoever receives one child such as this in my name receives me.

Temptations to Sin.

6d “Whoever causes one of these little ones* who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a great millstone hung around his neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.7
* Woe to the world because of things that cause sin! Such things must come, but woe to the one through whom they come!
8e If your hand or foot causes you to sin,* cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to enter into life maimed or crippled than with two hands or two feet to be thrown into eternal fire.

9And if your eye causes you to sin, tear it out and throw it away. It is better for you to enter into life with one eye than with two eyes to be thrown into fiery Gehenna.
Let us Pray for President Biden and his followers worldwide.
My Dear Lord,Our country and the world are in grave danger of inhumane acts against our most vulnerable, our unborn children and their mothers. I pray today Lord that you open the eyes of the ones under the spell of the evil one, that you speak to their minds, their hearts and their souls to reverse these sins.I pray Dear Lord that you shower them with your Love, Grace and Mercy and help us all bring Peace to one and all.I ask these things through Christ Our Lord, AMEN.
