sorry the pics arent so good- we are just so excited to see them!!
and on this same note, i was reading flower patch farmgirl (who is just amazing) and saw these necklaces that are made by women in africa to help support their families and i bought one. you can read more about it here. she found it through this girl who is really just amazing. i read her blog and just cried and cried. she lives in uganda where she works with (or started?) Amazima ministries that give 50% of the proceeds directly to feeding the women and children, is a member of their little community and loves and teaches everyone about the Lord. its just amazing. her outlook on life is just so incredible and grateful and reminds me how important it is to keep my eyes up and my perspective on the Lord. and im just so thankful to be able to do something, even if it just so small.
thanks for always listening, reading and encouraging us. we are so thankful for you guys and so thankful for the opportunity to share our lives with yall.
hope you guys have a great tuesday!
