|Just a little sample of the stuff...|
Our garage is full of stuff. Our living room is full of stuff. Our family room is.....full of stuff. And we have MORE STUFF COMING! :) And it is because friends have been donating this stuff to sell in our garage sale this weekend to help bring our Corrie home! Would you pray with us that it won't rain, because our garage won't hold all the stuff that we are selling. It will be covering our driveway too, and spilling over into the yard. And, I am really excited because it is really nice stuff!! The kids are going to be keeping the lemonade flowing and the cookies going, too. When we had a lemonade stand at our garage sale to bring Sarah home, I think they did better than we did. That cuteness factor does have a way with tugging at people's heartstrings... :)
I love garage sales. Honestly, what feels better than getting a good deal? When I come home with bags of clothes and things that we really need (and fun things too) for only a fraction of the cost it would have been in the store, it's one of my greatest joys in life. Humongous blessing! AND, what's better than having a sale, (okay, the work is not so fun--but meeting people is fun!) and seeing their happy faces as they walk away with THEIR treasures they are getting for a song? So fun. SO FUN!! AND...what could be better than getting great deals, giving people deals, and helping a family bring their daughter home so that there will be ONE LESS ORPHAN??? Oh, there is nothing better. :) Blessings, blessings, blessings!
So, that's what we are doing this weekend. I hope you have a great one, too!
(And if you are sad that you can't come and shop at our garage sale, you can still buy some Krispy Kremes with the gift certificates you can get from our friend. Here's that LINK. Or, check out the Once Was Lost button at the top of my page and shop for some great STUFF, and it will help Corrie, too!)
