Almost JEANuary!! Celebrate Freeset!!



The month of January is being hijacked for FREESET - an organization that provides jobs for women set free from the sex-slave industry in India! In honor of them, we are wearing JEANS daily, and calling it JEANuary instead!! All we ask is that you go to the website for FREESET and SHOP! How hard is that? At this time it's the best way to show our support - and give them some job security - so shop away!! 

Lord, 
We pray for FREESET and the women they are assisting in India. Thank You for opening doors, and arms, for these women to escape to from their lives in sex-trafficking. We ask that during JEANuary you will open the eyes, hearts, and pocketbooks of people around the world to the work that FREESET does. Father, provide people to shop from them, to order quantities from them for in the future, and to bring glory to You through the work that is being done there. Thank You for being our Redeemer, our Rescuer! For saving each one of us!

From the FREESET website: 

"Freeset is a fair trade business offering employment to women trapped in Kolkata's sex trade. We make quality jute bags and organic cotton t-shirts, but our business is freedom!

We would like to see the 10,000 sex workers in our neighborhood empowered with the choice of leaving a profession they never chose in the first place."

I've been really busy, and not busy enough. My heart has been breaking in unexpected places the past few months...friends passing away unexpectedly, illnesses attacking loved ones, me missing kids and grandkids, and not wanting to feel nostalgic for all the sadness around my heart right now. I feel tender and raw...vulnerable. I cry at the drop of a hat, even over silly things, like TALKING about not watching a movie that would make me cry...not even watching that movie. Just talking about it. Oh dear! I did want to touch base though as we approach Christmas...all the sadness is making me draw even nearer to Jesus, because He is my hope (and the hope of the world). I've enjoyed my time of Advent, singing in the choir at church, baking cookies for friends and neighbors. It helps me to shift gears emotionally and mentally when I can change it up a bit and do something new. And in God's goodness, He is allowing us to do something new for Christmas! I'll share the detai

Romans 12, Parts 2 and 3: Balanced and Beautiful in Christ

The new posts that I wrote for Balanced and Beautiful in Christ are now live on their Facebook page, and here on my new blog site (subscribe there so you don't miss a thing!). It's been a crazy few weeks (ok...are we going on several months now??) but I'm grateful that God had me write (and schedule) these several weeks ago. I pray that the words bless you and draw you closer to Himself.  Blessings, marina
