Humbled and Truly Grateful

I just wanted to pop in here and extend a rousing "THANK YOU!!!" to all of you who have generously contributed to our giveaway over the past 24 hours! When we stepped out in faith about a month ago and purchased the iPad, our hope was that this giveaway would be the "BIG ONE", so to speak and that we would be completely blown away by the amount that we raised. Well, as it turns out, the numbers are nowhere near what our goal was, but instead of disappointment we are feeling downright EXCITED and ENERGIZED by the love and generosity extended to us over the past day or so. I posted on the Reece's Rainbow yahoo group late yesterday afternoon about our less than stellar results thus far and a fellow RR mom said that she would post about our giveaway on her Facebook (thank you Traci!). Another momma chimed in with advice and tips on how to make our Chip-in more visible (thanks Shanna!). A little stirring of hope began growing in my heart as these sweet ladies began to offer their kind words of encouragement. And that stirring grew to a full-fledged flurry as donations started coming in! My kiddos and I were busy praying and the good Lord was busy moving! I can't tell you how AWESOME it was for me to get to share that experience with my children! To watch their sweet and joyous reactions as God poured out His blessings on us again and again! The memory of last night, watching my children dance and sing praises to the Lord, will stay with me ALWAYS. Although this giveaway may not result in the numbers we were hoping for, it has MORE than increased our faith in God and His Saints. So, THANK YOU again and again to all of y'all for your LOVE extended to us! We are humbled and truly grateful...

In His Grip,

"And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love."

~ 1 Corinthians 13:13
