A Red Envelope: Please Join All of Us in Mailing Ours on March 31st 2009

Hi all,
This is an email we've received from a dear friend that we thought was of great importance to share with y'all. Please consider doing this!
God bless,

An excerpt from Nancy Campbell's "Above Rubies":

As I was praying, I believe that God gave me an interesting idea. Out in the garage I have a box of red envelopes. Like the powerful image of the red LIFEtape, an empty red envelope will send a message to Barack Obama that there is moral outrage in this country over this issue. It will be quiet, but clear.
Here is what I would like you to do:
Get a red envelope. (You can buy them at Kinkos, or at party supply stores.) In the front, address it to:
President Barack Obama
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
Washington, D.C.

On the back, write the following message:

This envelope represents one child who died in abortion. It is empty because that life was unable to offer anything to the world. Responsibility begins with conception.

Put it in the mail, and send it.

In another email that was forwarded another lady answered the questions that were being sent out such as: "Well, when do we send them?"

Here is her response:

Hi, a date has been set to send the red envelopes. There's a red envelope group on facebook that just started and has almost 100,000 members. The date they are asking everyone to mail their envelopes is March 31. Let's pray they are absolutely flooded with these envelopes! Spread the word.

PLEASE! Spread the word!

Lois and Eunice

We thought about Priscilla and Aquila, but... "Nah, no good."
We thought about Half&Half and French Vanilla... "No."
Finally, we decided on Lois and Eunice.

"What on earth is she talking about?!" You may be wondering.

This morning as Olivia was going about her daily chores, she found a pleasant surprise outside...

"They're both girls!!" she called elatedly as she entered the house holding 2 BABY GOATS!

So, we named them Lois and Eunice after much MUCH debate :D

And here's little Lois! Isn't she a cutie? She would have been Aquila or French Vanilla :D

Baby Eunice! Another adorable goat! She would have been Priscilla or Half&Half... can you guess why? :D

Anna clamping the navels of the babies. This makes them less susceptible to infection.

A shot of us girls together with the babies. Oh! And Don Juan in my lap. He's a little baby we had a few weeks back. I meant to blog about it, but I just lost track of time... sorry, y'all :)

Eunice and Don Juan cuddling :)

A hind view :D

Official goat birth uniforms... Olivia and I didn't get the memo :)

Don't be grossed out by this next picture... :)
The placenta. Note the intricacy of the veins and the oxygen-rich blood packets. Now, can anyone reading this tell me now that this "thing" just evolved by happenstance? That this life source for a goat "just happened"?

Don Juan. I know this post isn't about him, but I just wanted to let y'all see a close up of this cutie!

Mrs. Morrison holding Eunice... I love this picture!

LOL! What can I say about this one?! Well, first off, goats aren't supposed to lay like that!... :D

:D Or like this in fact!

Many thanks to Jean Marie for allowing us to keep these pictures she took while here!
Thanks for stopping by!
