  1. Don’t forget “Mother’s Day” is just around corner. And, small sizes for our Christmas Child boxes and yourself one. 🙂 They make great gifts.

  2. The art is beautiful on the t-shirts! What a great job Dawn Collins, Chris Mar and CustomInk have done in conjunction with The Daily Lily to promote The Woman at the Well project and provide us with this opportunity to support it. Many thanks.

    1. It is so exciting to know we have a small part in giving and helping provide clean water to families in Africa. Hope many others reach out to the women at the well.

  3. What a special outreach to Sudan to enable a child to drink of
    fresh water and not muddy or polluted water. The shirt if beautiful
    as well – Lot’s of God’s wisdom reaching out to all to bring this project
    together.

  4. Trevor Hudson, One Day at a Time writes; “IF WE WANT TO STRENGTHEN our connection with God, there needs to be two-way communication. On the one hand, we need to share ourselves openly with God. We call this talking to God prayer. Some may argue that it is a waste of time to tell God anything. After all, surely God knows everything about us already. However, it’s not a question of giving new information to God. It’s much rather a matter of trust and transparency — learning to speak openly with God about everything in our life and then experiencing the closeness that this kind of transparency brings to our relationship with God. …”

    As I read and thought on the above words and shared with my husband in our morning thoughts and prayers I was reminded how easy it is to start a prayer and find sitting in the middle of my focused prayer was the news or other I just read, seen, or heard! What a scary thing to realize how difficult it is for me to have relationship with God because of my ‘muggle.”

    How can I successfully pray for and feel the horrific struggle of Women without clean water for themselves or their children and families while I drink from my sterile Starbucks cup with their coffee as well and plug the news from internet, text and other. And, laugh like a Hyenas* Hard to do for me.

    * Dictionary Definition…”Hyenas feature prominently in the folklore and mythology of human cultures with which they are sympatric. Hyenas are mostly viewed with fear and contempt, as well as being associated with witchcraft, as their body parts are used as ingredients in traditional medicine. Among the beliefs held by some cultures, hyenas are thought to influence people’s spirits, rob graves, and steal livestock and children.”

    I remember these stories well (told by the older to the younger) about the laughing-giggling women in America with all the food, drink, clothes and meds they need ‘not feeling content and loved’;so they laughed and laughed and forget.

    Matthew 25:40 “And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.”

    Sara, go today and, “Watch your Wings!”

  5. Hyenas are also visualized with big, gaping, laughing lips and mouths. WHEN I have a big mouth and don’t know when to keep it shut, it could well be likened to a “hyena”….full of bluther and rather. But it is not very funny…so there is not much to laugh about, except that the enemy is surely having a field day with it.
    It bodes me well to ‘watch my wings’ and my mouth for future reference….and there WILL BE future references, to be sure. “Whom the Lord loves He corrects and instructs in the way of righteousness to those who have strayed from it that we may have a good end in final day.”

    1. True for many of us, MG. But, to think I have caused a little one to die of disease or thirst because of it would be beyond what the mind wants to imagine. When I have the ability, the means and ways to change things and I use it for other things it seems I am wasting God’s resources. Maybe I’m wrong and my small makes no difference but my faith seems to speak otherwise to me.

  6. When I read about the Pokita Alotihav, a woman in South Sudan, willing to walk one hour back home carrying a 45 pound jar of water on her head from the clean water well, I thought all I have to do is walk a few feet to a tap with a glass in my hand. Also, how easy it is for me to help this woman and children and others like her. I don’t have to dig the well or even fill a jug … all I have to do is push a blue ‘Buy Now’ button on my computer screen and that will help another woman and her children live…and live a healthier life.

  7. True, Sara. We will be judged for our deeds concerning His rewards. for us. Every well-intended deed, no matter how small or how large will not be overlooked by the Judge. He even blesses us for offering a cup of cold water to one who is thirsting. We know we are working according to His commands when He is concerned with a cup of water or a piece of bread.

  8. I’m sure not against shopping for myself as ones know that know me. And, I’m sure not against Nordstom’s as it is one of my favorite stores and I am not against business. But, I am posting here this link to view T-shirts just in case we think $30 is high for the fund-raiser we are doing. After Custom ink pays for the shirts all will go the check to Samaritan’s to dig wells in Africa to help The Woman at the well. Take a look at these shirts:

    1. don’t you mean to say…’all will go’…

    2. “just in case we think $30 is high for the fund-raiser we are doing.” I can’t say that $30 dollars is a high price to pay, when $30 dollars may possibly safe someone’s life. What an excellent fundraiser that I am excited to be a part of.

  9. It is exciting to see how the Holy Spirit is working among the ones He is drawing to be a help and an aide to these dying-of-thirst little children in Sudan and their mothers. Praise God.

  10. I would love to have more information about my beautiful shirt! It arrived today. My mom, Lillian H., bought it for me for my birthday. I am going to be one of the Bible leaders this summer in my former church. (I said I would go back to help!) We will have at least 500 children attending – and they will be split into 4 groups for Bible time. I will represent the Woman at the Well one day – and so the significance of this shirt is not lost on me – it is no coincidence – I know how God loves to fit together all the pieces of His puzzle perfectly! The past several years, we have raised money for wells, however this year we are raising money for orphanages. May we all be involved in Kingdom work!

    1. Mona, Happy Birthday! And, what a lovely gift from Mother to Daughter. Love at it’s best.

      We are delighted that you love your T-shirt. We, thedailylily.com, are so happy and feel so rewarded by being a small part of changing lives in South Sudan through the work of Samaritan Purse and their program, “Women at the Well.” On the back of your shirt you will see my theme, “Watch Your Wings!” and the front the art of Dawn Collins of Charlotte, NC. You can find more of her art: http://www.porterfieldsfineart.com/DawnCollins/dawncollinsmainpage.htm

      We have raised; $1409.25 by selling 75 T-Shirts through a campaign by Customink !!!!!!! Some of our T-shirts were gifts from others and purchased in very small sizes to add to our Christmas Shoe Boxes, also with Samaritan Purse.

      Mona, how exciting to know that you are going to be working with all these children this summer at your church. I would love to hear more about your goal of working with the “Women at the Well”. Your response has given me hope and the desire to want to let this be our first campaign and not our last! Your Mother is a great inspiration to us in so many ways. I tear when I read her daughter’s words; “I will represent the Woman at the Well one day – and so the significance of this shirt is not lost on me – it is no coincidence – I know how God loves to fit together all the pieces of His puzzle perfectly!”

      I, Sara, wear my shirt proudly with you, Mona, as we “Watch Our Wings” and fly to fulfill our God Given Destiny! Prayers, hugs and love to you! And, Mom,Lillian H., to you for being a gift giver!
