While giving water today (all week) you can enter to win some FABULOUS gifts.
This Blog World has proven to bring so many together to make BIG changes for others.
I love that about the blog world.

Pick a give away you hope to win.
Then donate $10 at Project 320's charity:water page .
Each blog will have a link to the donation site.
Then leave a comment on the blog you want to enter.
You can donate again and again and again - all week.
For each $10 donation leave a separate comment on the individual blogs.
You can enter one give away or a ton of different give aways.

I can't watch either of these videos without tears and my heart racing telling me . . . "I can make a difference for one mom."
I've had a verse rocking my mind for a couple months now.
I've wanted to share it but it never seemed the time.
I think today is a good time.
It's in a part of the bible that I know I've read many times in my life but when I read it months ago I stopped.
2 Corinthians 8:13-15
"Our desire is not that others might be relieved while you are hard pressed, but that there might be EQUALITY. At the present time YOU PLENTY will supply WHAT THEY NEED, so that in turn their plenty will supply what you need. The goal is EQUALITY, as it is written: "The one who gathered much did not have too much , and the one who gathered little did not have too little."
Had I read this before?
Why hadn't I remembered this part?
I've never questioned our call to give.
It's obvious the bible is full of mandates to care for the poor, the needy etc.
But the word equality got me this time.
My plenty will supply there need.
Their plenty will supply my need.
Today, even in my needs, I have plenty.
Plenty of water.
Plenty of many things.
This week I will give water!
