Yard Sale

About a year ago (Do you sense the theme here? God has been preparing us for this long before we even imagined it.), we were starting to feel overwhelmed with all the “stuff” in our house. We began to sort and toss and clean, with the plan that I would have a yard sale this spring to get rid of it all. Fast forward a year, through a pregnancy and the birth of a baby, and we had quite a pile of stuff to get rid of. I had decided that it would be best in many ways to have the yard sale at my parents’ house. So, a couple weeks ago, we loaded it all up in two vehicles and headed south. Ted and I decided that any money we made at the yard sale would go towards our trip. It makes a difference when you are sorting through stuff if you have to think about the possibility of storing it for a year or so!

All told from the yard sale and selling off the rest of my fabric on craigslist afterward, we made…$1000!!IMG_4599
We won’t know how much money we need to raise until we figure out where we are going, but we are now $1000 closer than before! Praise the Lord!
