$2,169... in two days.

The Yard Sale is OVER. We still have a few items left that we're planning on listing on Craigslist, which will be in addition to the over $2,000 (!!) this past Friday and Saturday brought in.
We are grateful for all of our friends and family who came and helped. It was exhausting work but you guys made it so much fun. THANK YOU!!

I just don't have words to express the gratitude I am feeling. Thank you seems to fall short.

Thank you all who showed up early and helped us set up. Thank you all who endured the day with us, helped with money and bargaining and breaking down on Saturday. Thank you all who came and shopped! We thank the Lord for the brave people who took a chance and journeyed down our long driveway to check out what we were selling. Which, apparently, is a big risk, even for seasoned yard salers. Thank you all who donated to this yard sale which helped make it impressive to so many people. Thank you for your prayer support during this time. Thank you to those who gave gifts over and above.
The generosity that has been poured out is just a small glimpse into the Father's love for us.

Please remember us in your prayers as we continue to get ready for and go through our home study.

Yard Sale Postponed

We are scheduled to have showers and rain for the next few days.
I don't know many people who will want to shop outside in wet weather.

The yard sale will now be...

Friday March 20 from 10a-5p
Saturday March 21 from 10a-5p
For those of you who were planning on coming out to support us this weekend, I hope and pray that you will be able to make it next weekend.
March 20 is the first day of Spring! What a way to celebrate!
I apologize if this is an inconvenience for anyone.
Once we get on the other side of the yard sale, we are planning on hitting the homestudy pretty hard. So, you can imagine that we are ready to have this yard sale. We can't do any major cleaning with our house overflowing with generous donations! Most things are on pause for now.

(-: Upcoming Yard Sale :-)

Please remember to tell all of your friends and family about the yard sale this weekend, March 13 and 14 from 10am-5pm. Word of mouth is a powerful thing.
We have a rain date set for the following weekend, March 20 and 21.

Please see the following blog for pictures of some of the items up for sale. Those are only a few items. It's more like a multi-family yard sale with all the generous donations we've received!
There's a lot of really nice items. We've been tempted to keep some of it!

I don't normally pray about weather but I am asking to please be in prayer for NO rain :-)

Many thanks to you all.
