they have landed

The shirts to benefit Takes A Whole Village arrived at my doorstep this afternoon & they look GREAT! I'm so excited. It is amazing to see people come together to make a difference...and that's what you did.

See? Our lives count. And they count in an awesome way when we consider another's best interest. These kids are being given a second chance....and so are the people around them...and Heath is being changed because of them, no doubt. Don't we live in a crazy time when we can be connected with people on the other side of the world in such an intimate way?!

We get to see their sweet faces on Heath's blog....what if we let them see our faces...the faces of the actual people who cared enough to just buy a shirt to help them?

What if.....you sent you pictures of you in your shirts to me & we posted them here?

Sarah - what if you & your girls at Auburn got together for a "greatest day of your life" pic.....and the people at the YL office...and the people in other parts of this country that ordered shirts just to support, love on, encourage this ministry & those involved with it? I think it would be awesome.

And I hope you'll join me. Email them here forjames127@gmail.com

Thanks again for your generosity. We are living in a crazy time...and the opportunity to lift one another up is so great. It's a privilege to be a part of something like this with you.


tshirt update

Shirts should be here later this week - I'll get them delivered/shipped out as soon as I can after that. Thanks again to all of you supported this cause - we're so excited!


More on Sarah & some bibs!

This is the precious family you have all been so generously helping this month of March. This is Sarah & her brothers hanging out together in her crib at the hospital. They have come to love one another so quickly....she's been here just a month & she's been through so much in that short month. This family is amazing. Thank you! Thank you! for your orders...for your encouragement & for spreading the word. Keep it all coming. I'll keep you posted. And here are some of the bibs that Nancy has made for the Neema Shop! They are $13/each


update on the Levys

Can I just say how fun it is to paint these days? Just when painting was feeling like...yes, an outlet for me.....but why not more.....it was around that time that God rocked my world & began to break my heart & since then I have been able to use this God given simple little gift to do something. And I cannot do it alone. It takes community. I can paint all I want but if no one buys it then the money cannot be used for grander things.
I got to be with Sarah today. Such a joy.
I can't explain the strength of who she is & that there is no doubt in my mind that she was plucked out of that orphanage where she was alone into this family...I cannot explain how very on pupose all of it is. She is something. A spit-fire.
So thank you to all of you who have been placing orders - it is so amazing to be able to look at someone & have them know that many people worked together to give her a gift. And i think the encouragement of it all is incredible.
It is to me. I am certain that it is for this family.
And so it will continue through the month of March for the Levys.....so keep your orders coming!
And I'll post more artists as I fumble through & figure this whole thing out.
Stay tuned!


31/2 hour count down....
