Give Gifts That Give Back

If you have read my blog before you know how my heart longs for Africa.
You know how my heart desires to help the people of Africa.
First of all by teaching them the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Matthew 28:18-20
“Go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit,”
Every time I travel to Zambia I realize more and more how hard the women lives are. They have to work hard to provide enough food for their families. They have their babies and get up and go back to work with the baby strapped on their back.
One Chief I know declared that women get at least a week off after they have their baby before they have to go back to work gathering food and water.
There are many young girls who do not attend school because they are expected to stay home to help their Mother. It is considered more important for the boys to go to school.
There is so much more I could write about but I will not because of time and space.
I found Sseko Designs and fell in love with what they are doing for women in Uganda.
Please take a few minutes to read about Sseko Designs and see what they are doing.
If you are looking for a meaningful Christmas or Birthday present you may click on one of the banners to go to Sseko Designs and see what beautiful and unique gifts they have.  This not only makes a wonderful gift for you or someone you care about but through your purchase you will be giving to young women in Uganda. You will be helping them get an education so they can better themselves and give back to other women. This is very important to me because I am an educator and I have experienced first hand what a difference education can make in peoples lives.
 Matther 6:23
“But when you give to the poor, do not let your left hand know what your right hand it doing,
Galatians 2:10
They only asked us to remember the poor—the very thing I also was eager to do.
Blessings to You.

Just a little about Sseko Designs:
Sseko Designs is a sandal company based in Uganda. We make beautiful leather sandals with interchangeable fabric straps that can be styled in hundreds of ways.

Sseko began as a way to generate income for high potential, talented young women to continue on to university. Sseko has graduated three classes of women. Every woman who has graduated from Sseko is currently pursuing her college degree.
In addition to our university-bound team, Sseko also employs a full-time team of women from all walks of life. By creating an environment of dignity, honor, creativity and dedication, Sseko Designs provides the opportunity for women in East Africa to end the cycle of poverty and create a more equitable society.
We believe that every woman has a dream. When she is given the opportunity to pursue those dreams, we are collectively walking towards a brighter and more just and beautiful world.
We believe that our stuff has a story and that every dollar you spend is a vote for the way you think the world should work.
Every Sseko has a story. For more information click here:http://ssekodesigns.com/the-sseko-story/Sseko Designs

Let Us Be Thankful

A lot of people are posting 30 days of Thankfulness on their blogs or Face Book page. I admire people who can do that but I just cannot keep up with posting everyday for 30 days.  So, I decided to write a single post of some of the things I am Thankful for.
 God
2 Samuel 22:50
“Therefore I will give thanks to You, O LORD, among the nations, 
And I will sing praises to Your name.
1 Chronicles 16:8
Oh give thanks to the LORD, call upon His name;
Make known His deeds among the peoples.
Jesus Christ-Mercy and Salvation
1 Corinthians 15: 57
but thanks be to God, who gives us the victory 
through our Lord Jesus Christ.
I Peter 3:21
Corresponding to that, baptism now saves you–not the removal of dirt from the flesh, but an appeal to God for a good conscience–through the resurrection of Jesus Christ….
Family
Husband
Ephesians 5: 22
Wives, be subject to your own husbands, as to the Lord.
Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her, 
Child
Proverbs 31: 28
Her children rise up and bless her; Her husband also, and he praises her…
Friends
Proverbs 18:24 
A man of too many friends comes to ruin,
But there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.
John 15:14
You are My friend if you do what I command you.
Mother
Proverbs 31:28
Mother-In-Law
 Ruth 1:16
But Ruth said, “Do not urge me to leave you or turn back from following you; for where you go, I will go, and where you lodge, I will lodge. Your people shall be my people, and your God, my God.
Even though I am most thankful for my Husband, Son, Sister,  Nieces, Mother-In-Law and extended family and many more things too numerous to name, I realize that only Two on my list really matter.
God and Jesus Christ are the Alpha and the Omega. 
Revelation 11:13
“I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.”
Revelation 1:8
I am the Alpha and the Omega, “says the Lord God, “who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.”
So, what am I thankful for?
GOD and JESUS CHRIST
Acts 4:12
“And there is salvation in no one else;
for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved.”

Think About The Babies

Psalm 139:13-16

13 

For You formed my inward parts;

You wove me in my mother’s womb.

14 

I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;

Wonderful are Your works,

And my soul knows it very well.

15 

My frame was not hidden from You,

When I was made in secret,

And skillfully wrought in the depths of the earth;

16 

Your eyes have seen my unformed substance;

And in Your book were all written

The days that were ordained for me,

When as yet there was not one of them.

Exodus 20:13

New American Standard Bible (NASB)
13 “You shall not murder.”


How many abortions are performed in the United States each year?

According to the Guttmacher Institute, there were 1.21 million abortions performed in the United States in 2008, the most recent year for which data is available. This amounts to 3,322 abortions per day.

How many abortions are performed at each stage of pregnancy?

Let us not remain silent. Let us speak up for the babies that are being murdered every day and every year. They have no voice but we can be their voice. Let us get to the polls and speak up for the innocent so they may live to do something great for God.
