One Man's Trash is Another Man's Adoption Fund

This is just a small taste of what my house has looked like for the last week. I forgot to take pictures of the actual sale this morning so I will try and do that tomorrow. Ok let me just tell you how faithful God has been. I got this crazy idea to throw a yard sale 2 weeks ago and how much stuff was donated? well, 4 couches, 2 recliners, a pool table, a crib, 2 desks, 5 bookshelves, 2 dressers, a king size bed set, a stroller, 2 pack and plays, a macy's store worth of clothes, and about a billion other things. Yeah. Then it was supposed to rain and storm today and all week I was praying for no rain. NOT A CLOUD IN THE SKY and it's about the temperature of the surface of the sun. So the grand total for day one: about $670:) Not too shabby for a Friday and a ton of the big stuff is left so I think we should do a lot better tomorrow. Let's all pray for shoppers!!!! ok time to collapse into a heap and fall asleep.

I pray God continues to bless your adoption through this yard sale. Isn't He amazing how he constantly comes through? Our adoption is such a witness to His unending glory.
