I've been sucked into yard sale world! I've spent this week heading up our church's yard sale which will help fund adoptions. Then next week I am headed to Atlanta for our annual yard sale for Ranch on Jesus at Carriage Lane Presbyterian. I am up to my elbows in all sorts of things people no longer want or need yet are hoping someone else will want or need.
I have such a love/hate relationship with yard sales. A yard sale launched me into this ministry and I am deeply grateful for the tremendous money they can raise. Yet each year I forget how much work they are! It's sort of like childbirth. You forget how intense and grueling it is. And this year I'm doing TWO...back to back. Yes, I'm crazy. But oh, how satisfying it is to make a difference in the lives of children who need our love.

And please pray for me and our family. I won't lie. I shed a tear or two on the drive home tonight. It's been an intense summer. Intense, surprising, busy and blessed. Can't wait for school to start and life to settle!
