Have you seen that girl?

Innocent, Confident, with a hint of curiosity.
And an heir of what you see is what you get
Fun to be around, laugh at herself
Never worried
Life is short but what's the hurry?
Bright eyed and ready to take on the world

Have you seen that girl?
That everybody says I used to be
Have you seen that girl?
Where along the way did I lose me?
Have you seen that girl?

She was full of life
Looked on the brighter side
If it was worth a chance she'd take it
Said that life is what you make it
But a few wrong moves lead to a few wrong turns,
And once you're burned you're not the same
You tend to shy from the flame
I hate to think she's given up her dream

Have you seen that girl?
That everybody says I used to be
Have you seen that girl?
Where along the way did I lose me?
Have you seen that girl?

Have you seen that girl?

Planned Parenthood and the Total Desecration of Christmas

As most of the Nation celebrates the birth of Christ this Christmas , in Indiana, Planned Parenthood offers gift certificates that can be used for killing your baby. Over the past several years Planned Parenthood has sold "Choice on Earth" Christmas cards and t-shirts each Christmas season. Not only are they raising money to kill babies, the card mocks the birth of Christ.
“Choice on Earth”, the name of the Planned Parenthood card, is a disgusting attempt to spread their message of death while exploiting the celebration of the birth of Christ.
Luke 2:11-14 - 11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. 12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. 13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, 14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
The phrase “peace on earth” is based on this verse from Holy Scripture. Angels were proclaiming peace on earth and I am sure there was no thought of child killing being part of that peace.
What does the word “ choice ” mean in the context of Planned Parenthood's card? It means abortion; it is the choice to kill your baby through abortion. In essence, Planned Parenthood is celebrating Christmas by saying “abortion on earth”. It is ironic that in the day Christ was born, King Herod was having young babies murdered.
King Herod had every boy two years or under killed because of greed, pride, power, and control. These are also some of the same sins Planned Parenthood will instill in a young woman to get her to believe that she should kill her baby.
Planned Parenthood has become a modern day King Herod. They are more concerned with their own greed than the life of an innocent child.
Their greed and selfishness is more important than life itself. They make women feel like there is no other choice for their lives than abortion. They instill in them lies about how bad their lives will be if they give birth. They make them fear losing money, control over their own lives, opportunities, and happiness.
Just like King Herod, Planned Parenthood is more concerned about their own wealth, power and position in life than anything else and they want to pass that way of thinking onto young women and the world.
They are so dedicated to this evil way of thought they are willing to mock the birth of Christ and try to steal the true meaning of Christmas.
Christmas is a time of joy and peace as we ponder the birth of our Savior. It is a time to promote love and life not a time to promote death and hatred.
Planned Parenthood has attempted to steal the meaning of Christmas and distort it as they ignore the very reason we celebrate.

How long will this take?
How much can I go through?
My heart, my soul aches I don't know what to do I bend,
but don't break and somehow I'll get through Cause I have You

And if I had to crawl
Well you'd crawl too
I stumble and I fall
Carry me through
The wonder of it all
Is you see me through

Oh Lord, where are you?
Do not forget me here
I cry in silence
Can you not see my tears

When all have left me
And hope has disappeared
You'll find me here

When everything I was is lost
I have forgotten
Where you have not
When I am lost
You have not lost me

Oh Lord, where are you?
Do not forget me here
I cry in silence
Can you not see my tears

When everything I was is lost
I have forgotten
Where you have not
When I am lost
You have not lost me
You have not lost me
