My First Show

I went to my first craft fair today. I don't have many clothing pieces ready-made to sell so Jim said to just show what I had of Margo's clothing. I thought there was no way that I'd be able to fill up a booth with stuff I have of hers, well I was wrong... I can't believe how much I've made - just for HER! I got a few orders, sold some pre-made bows, and gave out lots of business - plus Margo had a great time at the kids carnival! We'll see what comes from it all!

God's Blessings

There have been many new blessings in our lives recently. The biggest one is - GOD GAVE US A CAR! Jim has been praying for a few months now about wanting a mini van - specifically a Toyota Sienna. We had a friend pray for specifics and God answering their prayers in amazing ways. So, Jim was inspired to start praying pretty specifically. A family in our church bought a new car and they told Jim that they were looking for someone in the church to give the van to. Jim let the family know that we would be willing to buy it from them but they were adamant that the van was ours. Two days later they came with a signed title and the keys. It was amazing - we were shocked and all the more so when we realized that it was a 2001 Toyota Sienna! God provides above and beyond! Every time I get in OUR van, I remember God's faithfulness.

And another blessing, we also got a trampoline! Another family was getting rid of it and Jim grew up with a trampoline. Even though Margo is young for it, she loves playing around on it with Jim and it's bringing Jim back to his roots as a kid!

"I have been young, and now am old, yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken or his children begging for bread. He is ever lending generously, and his children become a blessing." Psalm 37:25-26
