Memorial and Hairs of Your Head: A2 and A6

March 23, 2015

_ccrl Hairs of Your Head

But even the hairs of your head are all numbered.

Matthew 10:30

 

If men should struggle with each other and they hurt a pregnant woman

and she gives birth prematurely but no fatality results,

the offender must pay the damages imposed on him

by the husband of the woman; and he must pay it through the judges.

But if a fatality does occur, then you must give life for life.

Exodus 21:22,23

A special case with regard to the command “do not murder” is that of an unborn child. The scripture in Exodus shows God’s viewpoint, that it is wrong to cause the death of a baby in its mother’s womb, even unintentionally. If either the mother or her baby died as a result, the guilty party had to pay “life for life”. This means that abortion is wrong. In a complex world, it’s good to have a clear-cut answer to this emotive and sometimes heart-wrenching subject.

I love the passage in the book, “Keep Yourselves in God’s Love”, in the chapter, “Do You Value Life as God Does?”, which reads,

What, though, about a woman who had an abortion prior to coming to knowledge of Bible truth? Is she beyond God’s mercy? Not at all! In fact, a truly repentant person can count on Jehovah’s forgiveness based on Jesus’ shed blood. (Psalm 103:8-14; Ephesians 1:7) Indeed, Christ himself said: “I have come to call, not righteous people, but sinners to repentance.”—Luke 5:32.Doodles076 copy

After sundown on Friday, April 3, 2015, Jehovah’s Witnesses will observe the Memorial of Christ’s death, an event that they consider the most important of the year. The commemoration includes a 45-minute public discourse entitled “Appreciate What Christ Has Done for You!” As part of this special event, we are inviting our family members, neighbours and friends to attend. I would like to extend a warm welcome to you, my blog friends. To find out where your nearest location is, please visit HERE and click on “Find a Location Near You”.

Doodles076 copyToday’s card comes in both European and American sizes.

I’ve been calling the US versions “QL”, for Quarter Letter, or adding the dimensions, 4.25″ x 5.5″

but that gets tedious to type every single time!

Can one of my visitors from the US please confirm for me that cards of this size are called A2?

Or if not, what are they officially called?

Many Thanks!

    Beautiful cards with one of my favorite Bible verses. i am greatly comforted by knowing that He knows even the number of hairs on my head – He knows me intimately and perfectly. Thank you for the cards and the lovely additional elements. Rubescent is a lovely kit! Thank you for working hard to make each element and paper perfect!

      I know, isn’t it wonderful? And I’m thinking that of course Jehovah would need to know us this intimately in order to resurrect us with all of our memories, our personality traits – and our hairs!
