Today was Day 1 of our "Radical" garage sale.
Our Tuesday morning Bible study has been reading Crazy Love & Radical this spring. Intense and challenging in so many ways.
Among the many radical things my friend Amy has done, this past spring she really lived out the command to care for the orphans. She adopted her second little boy from Africa, this little man being from the DRC.
Words cannot describe how cute this little guy is....really, really adorable (like his big brother). So we wanted to think of ways our little band of stay at home moms could support Amy and help raise funds. Being that we are all on a budget, we decided to have a garage sale. It is very liberating to get rid of the excess "stuff" and then know that the money is going toward this amazing family.
All of us are pretty tired tonight. Our hostess, Julie, graciously provided her home & driveway. It is such a good tired. And doesn't even begin to compare to the crazy long flights, sweltering month and "rustic" conditions Amy & her husband endured to bring this boy home.
Tomorrow is Day 2.
If you're a local & want to come out, we still have great stuff left! ANd you know that I am always ready to barter or just shoot the breeze. I met so many cool people today & will even see two of them in church Sunday.
