Clean Sweep!

 If it's not tied down, it's outa here!  We are having a clean sweep...
...for a garage sale!
We checked our October, and there was only one weekend available - next weekend, October 5 and 6!  It's kinda quick, but I usually work better under pressure anyway.

Thing is, we don't have a lot of 'stuff' because around here if it doesn't get used regularly it gets passed on.

But I imagine there are things hiding in each room and the attic that need to go.

We are also asking local friends if you have stuff you'd like to get rid of we are willing to pick it up before next Thursday, October 4 when we will be moving everything to our amazing-past-garage-sale-location, thanks to B and D!!!

This weekend is packed.  We will have the fresh mums available and hope to sell out by Monday.  Then next week is devoted to purging our junk.

It could easily become overwhelming...but then I remember WHY.  There is a precious little girl halfway around the world who desperately needs to come home.  Once home she will need immediate evaluation for health issues that we are not ready to share. 

Khloie has two medical special needs: one seems minor and may be a non-issue; the other is a bit of a mystery and something we are totally unfamiliar with.  But the Father knows!  He is the Healer, and He is our Provision!

We completely trust Him in every aspect of this journey to our girl, and when we said YES, we all knew it would be a journey of surrender and faith.  We are committed to do our part.  We hope to complete this process without further debt.  Truth is, we still have $18,700 debt from a few previous adoption processes.  It wasn't that we rushed out and borrowed the money in a panic; it was that we were ready to travel, and having held every fundraiser we could think of, we didn't feel that we could ask for any more help.

And that's ok.  It was part of the ransom to get our Treasures home.  We keep praying that God will bring a bountiful corn harvest that will cover it ALL!  And He can do that!

In the meantime, we will continue with the task at hand, doing what He has called us to do ~ work hard to get our girl home.

Rest will come later...

You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit - fruit that will last.  Then the Father will give you whatever you ask in my name. ~Jesus~
