Freedom Day

25 Mar

“The Spirit of the LORD is upon me,
for he has anointed me to bring Good News to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim that captives will be released,
that the blind will see,
that the oppressed will be set free,
and that the time of the LORD’s favor has come.”

Luke 4:18-19, NLT

Let’s remember today those who are still held captive around the world. Today we mark 200 years since transatlantic slavery was abolished, yet there are more slaves around the world, than at any time in history. Let’s also remember those around the world who are enslaved to their own addictions, and pray for freedom for everyone.

    Definitely.

    I love the purses you make, they must take ages to do!

    Oh my, thank you! Yes, I haven’t been brave enough to actually figure out how many hours go into one purse! I love doing it though. 🙂
