Yard Sale Mania

"Sisters" submerged in STUFF...at times we thought it would never end.

The reason it has taken me over two weeks to write this update post on our yard sale-ing endeavors is because of the toll it took on my sleep, my parenting, my housework, etc. (that is a whole other post, which I will hopefully get to soon).

BUT, I must say, the yard sale went really well and the Lord enabled us to raise a little over $1,500!!! That puts our personal total adoption income through yard sales to $4,000.  Not too shabby, if you ask me. PLUS we have several more people doing yard sales in the next couple of months and we are hoping for at least another $1,000 through those.

Our original goal was for 25 people to sign up to do yard sales in response to the orphan’s cry (in particular, Jonathan and David, who Sara and Eric are adopting from Ethiopia).  It really is a great deal-you get rid of unwanted clutter in your house (and your friends’ houses if they give you their stuff), you spend the day outside in the beautiful spring weather,  you get to meet neighbors (we’ve befriended a new couple on our street who are atheists but are really interested in talking to us about “religion” -all through them buying a bunch of furniture at the sale!), and you OBEY the Father’s call to care for the orphaned.  Anyways, here is a list of future yard sales, and if you would like to be added to the list, PLEASE contact me!
