ViBella Jewelry Is Much, Much Prettier Than My Prayer Beads.

Haiti on my Heart
I know a little girl (okay, I know her mom) who has decided to raise $5,000 to build a playground at a school in Haiti. She’s Lydia Lee, the daughter of Jennifer Lee, who blogs at Getting Down With Jesus. (Jennifer is also working on a book, but that’s another exciting story). 
Anyway. Lydia is having this amazing jewelry party, selling beautiful ViBella jewelry. If you’re not into jewelry, they make bookmarks and Christmas ornaments, too. Every penny of your purchase goes to the women in Haiti who make the jewelry (70%)  or to Lydia’s fundraiser (30%). How cool is that?
And you know, Christmas is right around the corner. 

Won’t you please, please head on over to Jennifer’s place and read Lydia’s story? It can’t hurt to look, right? 

Haiti on my Heart, Part Two

Will you to join me in prayer for the HelpOneHaiti Blogging Team? They are on the ground now, using their God-given gifts to raise awareness and find sponsors for children. Some of these bloggers are people I know personally, like Deidra Riggs and Mary DeMuth. Others, like Dan King and Duane Scott, I’ve had the honor to work with here in the blogosphere. And still others I don’t know.

I don’t need to know them to pray for them all. 

So, Friend, could you do one or more of these things this week? It’s not a hard list . . .
  1. Pray for Lydia Lee’s fundraiser.
  2. Pray for the HelpOneHaiti blogging team.
  3. Order some jewelry from ViBella (by October 14; put “Lydia Lee” in the Special Instructions field on the order form so the fundraiser gets credit).
  4. Consider whether sponsoring a child is a commitment you could make. 
Thank you. 
God bless Lydia. God bless the blog team. God bless the people of Haiti.

God bless you.

“Yes, Lord,” he said, “you know that I love you.”
Jesus said, “Feed my lambs.”
16 Again Jesus said, “Simon son of John, do you love me?”
He answered, “Yes, Lord, you know that I love you.”
Jesus said, “Take care of my sheep.”
17 The third time he said to him, “Simon son of John, do you love me?”
Peter was hurt because Jesus asked him the third time, “Do you love me?” He said, “Lord, you know all things; you know that I love you.”
Jesus said, “Feed my sheep.
