"But these things I plan won't happen right away. Slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches when the vision will be fulfilled.
If it seems slow, be patient! For it will surely take place. It will not be late by a single day." Habakkuk 2:3

Garage Sale and more ideas....

So, a couple of things to say tonight-first THANK YOU to each and everyone of you that donated in one way or another to our garage sale last weekend! We made a whopping $825!! We are excited and the good news is, that even though I work this weekend, Adam is going to hold another sale due to Silverton having their Art Festival at the park across from our house, so lots more people! Thank you too to Mary G. for making the delicious pastries for Cassidy to sell-she had a blast! Jacob was able to give $100 out of his car parking business too! If anyone wants to drop off anything-just bring it by anytime, and if we are not here, leave it on the porch :) I work Friday, so if there is anyone from work, I can get it then.

Secondly, we came up with a new idea this week too. Zach our 7 year old LOVES to take cans in with his grandma to get spending money. We talked with him and he wants to hold a "SEPTEMBER CAN DRIVE" for ALL of September. So, if you can save your cans, and now plastic water bottles too, we will get them to him and he can take them all in at once on Oct. 1st and see how much he can get for the adoption. This will be his way of "helping". :) Bring them to our house, call and we can get them, or get them to me at work-thanks!

Thirdly, some people have asked about donating a cash amount. We set up a link on our blog on the bottom that is called "CHIP IN" and it has a button on there that you can click on to donate to our adoption securely through PayPal. We figure if everyone we knew gave like $10-25 it would all add up quickly! Don't feel obligated, but we have it there for those that would like to help.

DON'T FORGET TO "FOLLOW" OUR BLOG FOR AUTOMATIC UPDATES!

This week should be it-we should have all of our homestudy paperwork in by Tuesday-YA, then we will schedule the 3 homestudy visits. We will let you know....thanks again to everyone for your support and help! We love ya all-

"Although it may not always be obvious to us, there seems to be one distinct moment when God begins a new story in each of our lives. He writes words on our hearts that long to be spoken and strain to be lived out. Then with His own great hand, He begins to write the script. Experience by experience through seemingly ordinary days, He supernaturally orders our lives. Only when we look back and reflect on what appeared to have been the ordinary events of life does it become clear what a miracle the Lord has performed." Jan Beazely
