Yeah Garage Sale day...

Sometimes, I just love America.

Today was our citywide (neighborhood) garage sale day. It was so fun. I have only experienced garage saleing in America... It was great to meet neighbors a few blocks away and find things in common based on what I was buying. One lady actually went into her house and brought out things that were precious to her and sold them to me because she told me she knew I, "would take care of them". That was great.

I have to share why I love garage saleing (sp?) so much. For a few weeks, I have been, deep down thinking about a book: Freckles by Gene Stratton-Porter. I am listening to Girl of the Limberlost and they keep talking about someone named Freckles. I started to remember that I thought there was a book by Stratton-Porter of that name, and I started to want to find it.

Well. Yesturday, I go up to a garage sale, the one where the woman started bringing out the special things she cared about... and there was Freckles. God is SO COOL. So Fun. I am amazed at how he guides us without us even knowing it. I feel like my life is turning into a walk in the Enchanted Woods looking for and following the bread crumbs.

That is just ONE example of many, many times I have been given -- through garage sales -- exactly what my heart desires at ridiculously low prices. We have so many stories all through our house.

Gloria. I thought of you today as I walked around looking at people's old things they brought out that were new for me...

Fun day.

You can NOT believe the treasures of that day! (I only shared one.) I am amazed at how God cares for us, and delights in doing it!
