Garage Sale MADNESS!

Never in my life have I ever seen so much STUFF in one place.

So much we took over the neighbor's garage AND driveway, AND had to borrow that trailer in the background to store all of the STUFF.

We had people calling/emailing/texting left and right, wanting to bring goodies to us for the fundraiser.

I would look out my window and see random people unloading donations in my driveway.

Be still my heart.

The outpouring of love and support overwhelmed our entire little family.  

We had support and help from people in all walks of life.  

Donations, donations, donations.

We decided to have our garage sale on two days (Friday and Saturday) since there was SO much stuff.

Only problem:  60% change of THUNDERSTORMS predicted for BOTH days.

We decided to go out on faith and hold the garage sale rain or shine.

It rained and stormed ALL AROUND US.  Just about all of our customers said they drove through rough weather to get to us.

We didn't get a drop of that rain.

We had a pretty consistent gentle breeze that gently kept the storms away from our street.

OH the outpouring of love and support we received!  

The wonderful friends who volunteered their time (and their kids' time) to help out with all of the back-breaking work just overwhelmed us. (You know who you all are!)

Garage Sale total:  $2,895

My cup overflows.

  1. God knew the plan, God heard the prayers, God knew the people involved. Weeks ago God set His plan into motion. God knew the purpose, God moved his people, God knows the outcome. God.....gets results. His incredible blessings on ALL of us are obvious when we open our eyes to His Grace. #GodblesstheFowlers
