Today has been amazing! God is really providing for our adoption. Today has been such a reminder that God is in control and He will provide. We just need to continue to trust Him.In just about 2 hours time we were so hugely encouraged. Jen came home to check our email and facebook and all. She found 2 more cookie orders on wickedgoodeats.etsy.com Just minutes later she found a note on facebook from an old college friend of ours.
Our friend also has an etsy shop, selling homemade children's clothes, aprons, little boy's ties, blankets, etc. She put a link to her site and told us to check it out. Jen immediately had tears in her eyes as she read the page. Our friend is raffling off for $1.00 a little girls tunic she will make and all proceeds will go to our adoption. We didn't ask her for this and didn't know anything about it until she sent the link. What a blessing having someone else promote our cause for us. She also gives people an option to just donate to us. If this wasn't enough, their shop is also donating 20% of their earnings for April to our adoption. Wow!!! Please, check out their shop. Her items are beautiful and original. http://www.redpajamasdesigns.com
A couple hours later we were notified by paypal that a family member had just donated $100. Thank you so much!! An hour later another family member wrote asking for our address in order to send something to our adoption fund. Again, wow. God is so good and so big and so in control.
We are so encouraged today and just wanted to share all this with everyone. God's word says to proclaim His mighty deeds and so here we are doing just that. Psalm 145:3 "Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise; His greatness no one can fathom."
On a side note, we just added Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies to our etsy shop.
