I have heard that saying many times since we have entered into the adoption world. However, in the last year that has become more than just a saying to me. I have seen God provide time and time again in the last year.
9 girls said yes to going to Uganda and God provided over $3,000 for each of us to go...even when we were all a little doubtful that it would actually happen.
Recently I have been feeling a little impatient. I have begged God to let our referral come soon. As I continued to beg I heard His small whisper in my heart..."Are you really ready?" I knew that we weren't. I knew that there was still more to do to raise the funds to bring our girl home. From the very beginning of the process I knew that we would do a garage sale for Kenzi. But, let me be honest...I HATE GARAGE SALES! I have put it off and put it off. Hearing that whisper from the Lord, reminded me that it was time to stop procrastinating. So the planning began! I kid you not...as soon as I started working towards the garage sale (obeying God's prompting) over $320 of donations came in out of the blue. I love th way God confirms things for His children!
We were totally blessed by 2 families who decided to donate lots of great stuff to the sale. However, we were still doubtful on Thursday night as we were pricing like crazy and trying to figure out where to put all the stuff...the last time we had a garage sale we made maybe $300. Nathan said we may be lucky to make $500 this time...although secretly we were both praying for $1000...impossible or not.
Next up...13.1 miles in the Chosen Marathon for Adoption this weekend!! Go team Kenzi for Keeps!!!
