the big sale!

the big sale!

After hours and hours and days and days of work, the big day arrived!    The Garage Sale fund-raiser for our adoption kicked off this morning at 8am and was a great success!

When we woke up, the sky was gray with a 70% chance of precip and cool, windy temps.   NOT what we’d hoped for!     I (Lisa) admittedly had an  ‘Eyore’ attitude about it all as we  worked to get the space ready.    Tague, however, kept us moving and set up tents and tarps and decided that we would keep the doors open and hope for the best.

Well…. I should’ve remembered that Minnesotans who haven’t had the opportunity to be outdoors for 6 months, wouldn’t let a little rain keep them from the opening weekend of Garage Sale-ing!!

AND I should’ve remembered that God had put this sale together for His purposes and that He would handle the results for His glory.

The shoppers were out in force and EVERYONE was supportive and excited for us in our adventure.   We had signs posted letting everyone know that the proceeds were going towards our adoption and people were incredibly generous.   Not one person asked for a lower price on an item and most of them told us to ‘keep the change’ when they completed their sale.    Several made donations that were way more than their purchases!

As items were sold, donations continued to pour in so it hardly looks like anything is even gone!    We’ll be out in the garage tomorrow (in spite of the predicted snow!) and Saturday.   And we’ll probably do this all over again in 2 weekends.

We are humbled and blessed by everyone’s generosity!    And we’re thanking God tonight for demonstrating His great goodness towards us all day over and over again.

(and our feet hurt!)  🙂
