Sign Making Bonanza!

Have I mentioned that we have the most wonderful friends in the entire world? Because we do! We have been part of a small group Bible study that meets each week for almost three years, and the wonderful, beautiful friends that the Lord has brought us through this group are the best that anyone could hope for. These dear, dear brothers and sisters in Christ have been walking side-by-side with us during this adoption and have been the hands and feet of God when it comes to encouraging us and reminding us that we are in His hands. Furthering their already incomprehensible generosity, these incredible friends offered to spend this week's Bible study meeting helping up make and install the posters for our yard sale around town. This was a blessing in more ways than one. First, it was a HUGE help to not have to make all of the signs on our own, and SECONDLY, the sweet wives of this group have waaaaaay better handwriting and artistic skills than we do, so our signs look beautiful! Behold the evidence below!

Dad-to-be is excited! So excited he did not notice the sign was upside-down! 
Shegun and Chris hard at work with the staple gun. 
LC and Rachel (the artistic geniuses of the group)
Rachel's sign, complete with cherubim...  
So proud of Steven and his pretty pink sign!

So if you see any neon signs in the Cahaba Heights area, you know who was behind them! Please stop by the yard sale on Saturday, June 23!

And to our wonderful small group, thank you so much for all you have done and are doing. We cannot begin to tell you how blessed we are by each of you. God has gifted us beyond measure through your friendship. Thank you for love, support and friendship. You showcase the heart of Christ more than you know. Paul said it perfectly:

"You yourselves are our letter, written on our hearts, known and read by everyone. You show that you are a letter from Christ, the result of our ministry, written not with ink but with the Spirit of the Living God, not on tablets of stone but on the tablets of human hearts." 2 Corinthians 3:2-3

Thank you for being a living letter that testifies the heart of Christ. We love each of you.
