|Red rose sketch by Gloria Poole of Missouri and Georgia, created today 18 July 2014|
This sketch that I, Gloria Poole, drew, painted, signed, photographed on my portable drawing board and uploaded today is because of prolife victories recently. The red rose [and also tiny feet] has long been a symbol of the prolife movement . Today as I was updating another blog of mine at https://save-the-baby-humans.blogspot.com I realized that the prolife community, me included, gets few rewards from the world but almost always gets some sort of blow-back for any prolife activity we do. This is not a perfect sketch. Painting roses is one of the most difficult objects I ever attempt to draw and paint and I do not claim to be expert at it. I merely wanted to make an effort to say thank you very much to all prolifers everywhere for keeping on, keeping on, when at times it seems that each person is in it completely alone like David fighting Goliath.
I am reminded of the verses in Deuteronomy chapter 28 : 1-14 of the blessings of GOD for obedience to HIS words. I quote some of those :
"And it shall come to pass, that if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of THE LORD thy GOD, to observe and to do all HIS commandments which I command thee this day, that THE LORD thy GOD will set thee on high above all nations of the earth; and all these blessings shall come upon thee and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of THE LORD thy GOD. Blessed shalt thou be in the city and blessed shalt thou be in the field. Blessed shall be the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy ground, and the fruit of thy cattle, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep. ..[continues to verse 14 then curses for disobedience begin]. Deuteronomy 28 : 1-4, King James Holy Bible.].
Of course the fruit of your body are children. And the fruit of the field is vegetables but also flowers and trees that are food such as pecans, almonds, oranges, pears, apples, peaches, coconuts, and many more. GOD says when HE blesses you, HE blesses your children and your results.
OK, I am continuing the prolife cause including any maybe especially the personhood amendment cause. I draw and paint almost every day but that is usually for relief from stress [leisure] or to illustrate a point. I am not an employee of anyone and I 'work" from my own apt in Missouri which is private and which has a dedicated "home office / studio" space in it, and for my own purposes . One of those purposes is doing what I can as a Registered Nurse licensed in Missouri to end abortion as a so-called "right" since GOD said it is a wrong in Exodus 20:13, KJV.
To read to educate yourself on the prolife issues and or the gospel in snippets, please read these blogs that are mine and that I write/ create and that each one is different:
