Adoption Benefit Yard Sale #4(a)

  Rejoice always, 
pray continually,
 give thanks in all circumstances;
        for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

                            So today was the day of our fourth sale and while the forecast predicted the possibility of rain, when we woke up at 5:30 it wasn't raining.  So we set up....and then came the rain.  We had some tarps and quickly covered everything as best we could, and with the help of a friend (with a major servants heart) we attempted to rearrange the garage to set up as much as possible inside.  Of course it was dissappointing, but we did all that we could do.  I am so thankful that this is all God asks of us!  He is clearly the one providing so we really have no reason to be upset or worried.  We will rejoice as he tells us to, and in this too we will give thanks.  He has provided faithfully and been there every step of the way, and we are so grateful.

                            So the grand total today was............$20.60!!  However, today in the midst of the chaos I received a phone call from my eye doctor asking if I was interested in doing a contact study.  I've often taken part in the past, earning as much as $250.  This one....pays a little over $400.  God is so good! 

                          No pictures from today, but we are set up as best as we can be in the garage so I will try tomorrow from 8-1 to be out there....we'll see how it goes!  Thank you as always to everyone who has donated, we cannot thank you enough.

                          And a special thank you to Ian Quinn who came to help us even as it poured on his way here.  We are so grateful for friends like him!
