I'm exhausted

My friends Julie and Jen are both adopting from Ethiopia very soon. I can't wait and my heart is so overwhelmed for them. It's like having a friend that's pregnant and you're just waiting for each new step of the process... I don't understand it all but I'm trying to be as supportive as possible. It's been so neat to watch God bless both of these families!

Well, last weekend and this weekend they are doing yard sales to help raise money for their adoption fees. I think it's an awesome idea! Today I headed out to Julie's house for a few hours. I sold a few items and helped reorganize things. Then I actually started talking with a woman from Kenya who was looking for a new church to visit. I quickly took the opportunity to invite her to ours. I sure hope she comes!

They have so much stuff still. Tearing it all down was hard work. I'm glad I stayed though because I got an amazing workout!

Girls, I hope you know how much I love you and how excited I am for your families. You are amazing women and your faith is BIG! I know God is going to continue to bless you both!!

You are an amazing friend to put in such a long day for us. You are the garage sale queen too. Folding all those clothes - definitely helped sales this least until everyone messed it all up. We couldn't keep up.
