FIRST....A shout out to all of you who helped meet the matching goal of $5,000.00 for New Day surgeries! That means $10,000.00 will go toward life-saving surgeries for these precious children in need. THANK YOU to the 'mom like you and me' who matched these donations, and THANK YOU to those who gave! You gave a child a chance at LIFE!
And if you missed out on that donation drive, there's another chance! Another 'mom just like you and me' is continuing the matching challenge! Double your money up to $2,000.00! That means another $4,000.00 toward a child's surgery...another $4,000.00 towards LIFE! Ten dollars turns into twenty! Fifty dollars turns into one hundred dollars! And then two thousand becomes FOUR MORE THOUSAND DOLLARS! So if you feel led, please donate using the chip-in button on the side-bar.
Two fellow adoptive mommas are holding fund-raisers to bring home their girls! If you would like a chance for some incredible give-aways...and I do mean INCREDIBLE!....then hop on over to Amy's blog HERE and Kathy's blog HERE.
And one more! My good friend Michele is fund-raising for her daughter waiting in China...yet to be revealed! Hopefully soon! You can visit HERE to donate!
On giving: A wonderful book we are reading, titled "Daring to Live on the Edge" by Loren Cunningham, founder of YWAM....
"If we listen to the Lord and do what He says to do in offerings, the needs will be met from among the people. God has already placed them there with the right amount to give. But obedience has to come before the miracle.
If we will all be sensitive to the Holy Spirit and His leading, offerings will become a highlight of our lives. Our giving will be VARIED, EXCITING, and EXUBERANT. Often it will be beyond what we can do without God's help. And it will be rewarded. As His Word promises,
'Give and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.' Luke 6:38"
Happy Monday! (and thank you for your sweet sweet comments about our little Keith and Krisha!)
