A Whirlwind of Blessings

Well, after 3 days of sheer craziness and heaviness in the beginning of this week, it was as if God released a flood of blessings on Thursday.  The issue with one of our forms was miraculously worked out and we are ever so grateful for your sowing seeds of prayer and interceding on our behalf.  Your prayers strengthened us and kept us calm during the storm.

Along with the amazing news of that form issue being worked out, very unexpectedly, I started getting a flurry of requests from individuals who wanted to order Glass Tile Pendants.  Wow!  And then....(yes, I know you shouldn't start a sentence with the word 'and' but this is worth the grammar violation)...so I'll do it this one time.  AND then a beautiful mom surprised us with a donation towards our adoption.  Although she felt it was small, it was HUGE to us.  Orders are fantastic and please keep them coming!!!  We've been able to do so much because of the t-shirt and necklace orders.  The AWESOME, AWESOME, AWESOME thing about straight-out donations is that we get 100% of those funds (minus PayPal's fee of course).  With straight-out donations, we don't have to take out material costs like we do for our t-shirts and pendants. 

We also received the first part of our background checks for the state which was great.  I celebrated that day because it just felt like so much movement.  BLESSINGS ABOUNDED!

While we don't deserve another blessing from God, it's oh so good to know that He desires to continue to bless us and move mountains that we can't budge ourselves.

While we have had this bounty of blessings on Thursday, on Friday, we found out that there is something that popped up that has us baffled and now we have to iron out those details but you know what....I'm not worried.  My God who delivered us on Thursday is the same God who can move this mountain too.  So keep praying for us.

In the meantime, please consider continuing to support us financially in bringing baby girl home.  Here's how you can support her journey to a forever home:

  • T-Shirts:  These t-shirts not only promote an awesome cause but they're so comfy, they feel like your favorite pair of blue jeans.  Check them out by clicking here!
