That's what our fundraiser thermometer has been doing the past few days, going up, up, up! Thank you, Lord Jesus!
Yesterday we received $75, $20 and $25 donations! Today we've received $75 more!!
I am hopeful the momentum will not stop but that this mountain will continue to crumble before us.
Know what I learned when I snuck back over to Julia's blog to read the comments yesterday on her posts about the repeat adoptive families in which we were one of the families featured? I learned that the $10 donation made on Sunday morning was prayed over. That person blessed each of the families featured, with $10 AND prayed that the Lord would multiply what was given. And what was the very next donation we unexpectedly received? It was the $1,000 donation from someone in our church family! AND the funds continue to trickle in!! People, this is NOT a coincidence...THIS IS GOD!
I truly believe that the $10 and prayer (any and all the prayers being said for Alyssa and Piper's journey home) is what is moving this mountain!
I would say that in addition to that, that God blesses faithfulness. When He places a burden on our heart to give, we have been doing it without hesitation TRUSTING HIM to bless those on the receiving end, and to bless our adoption needs as we need it. And He has been faithful to do so EVERY. STINKIN'. TIME!
Want to here about my dilemma? Thank you cards. yup, can't seem to keep up because the donations are coming from every which way. That's awesome, just amazing how God is working but I feel horrible for not keeping up better. So I may need to change up my idea of what qualifies as a suitable THANK YOU note or card. I'm working through some ideas in my head. I don't want anyone to even think for a minute we aren't appreciative and incredibly grateful.
And lastly, my friend is still seriously considering and praying about adopting the little girl on RR that stole my heart. I am praying like crazy that God will speak clearly and she will be obedient to whatever He has called her to do. I'm excited and hopeful. Please pray for D!
