On Eating Elephants

Our rummage sale yielded $1000.00. I think that's pretty awesome for two days.

We have a few larger furniture pieces left over which I will be listing on Craigslist. Also we have a few specialty items which we realized would fetch more money if we sold them on ebay. I think after those things are sold we'll have close to $1500.00.

Because we are adopting with AWAA a second time they offer a 10% discount on all their fees. We've paid in two months, thus far (including the 10% discount given) : $4,862.25

Our next installment will be a biggie. I calculate that we will owe $11,600.00 in about two months.

We'll gladly accept any and all prayers on our behalf related to the provision we require!

The saying comes to mind: How do you eat an elephant?

One bite at a time.

That's great to hear! So happy God provided the $1000 to jump start. I can't imagine being faced with that next big bill but you guys are amazing and God will provide!
