We're having a yard sale this Saturday and it's been so wonderful to see how many people have joined with us to donate items for it. One of the sweetest stories about someone who's donated items is the 5 year old son of one of my wife's co-workers. The co-worker was talking with his wife about getting up some things for our yard sale and mentioned getting some toys from their son's room. When the little boy heard this, he wailed, "Noooo! Not my toys!" He calmed his son down and then explained why they were donating to our yard sale: about how we were "adopting a child who didn't have parents to love them." When the little boy heard this, he went up to his room and came back down later with some stuffed animals he wanted to donate.
The generosity of others is incredible and we never expected so many people to be so kind and charitable towards our family. We are filled with such gratitude towards those who have donated not only money and items for the yard sale, but their prayers, love, and encouragement. There have been times when we have really needed those words of support.
For those of you who are local, we hope to see you Saturday. It will be from 8 am until noon.
We have lots of items for sale:
Small kitchen appliances
Framed pictures & picture frames
& Much, much more!
Come by, come buy, & support a great cause!
For those of you who can't come, please pray that our yard sale is a great success.
