I'm writing this today with tears of joy, gratitude just an overwhelming sense of unworthiness of all the blessings He has bestowed on us this weekend. We had an amazing fundraiser in our hometown of Decatur, TN and it seemed like all of Decatur showed up to support us. It was incredible.
This is just a few of the pictures from the weekend. It was so amazing to see folks helping with the spaghetti dinner and silent auction from sun up to sun down, practically. There were some folks that helped that didn't even know Jason or I personally, but knew other family members and showed up early to help set up, serve and clean up. We can never repay them for what they have done, but they will be cherished in our hearts forever.
Just as the Ephesians 3:20 says, "Now all glory to God who is able through His mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we may ask or think". We saw His work this weekend, people being the hands and feet of Christ. It was far above than we could have ever thought or imagined! God is always more than enough.
Let me just take a moment now and share that if you are even considering this path, I urge you to explore it thoroughly. We had no clue in the beginning how we would fund this, but we knew God was calling us to this so we took that leap of faith. That's it! A leap of faith and God is providing and we are trusting in Him to do so. He's faithful and He's not going to leave us on this journey that He has called us on.
Please, ask me any questions about adoption, I am always more than happy to answer those questions. The adoption agency's are always willing and ready to answer your questions. If you feel God calling you to this, don't push it away. You will not believe the blessings you will receive when you obey. Jason and I feel so unworthy of all of this, but we are so thankful and give God all the glory.
