Help For a Foster Boy & Halloween Peek

I am so excited to have completed fund raising with your help for a wonderful boy in our local foster care system. If you don’t remember his story, please click HERE.

To be totally honest, I was scared to death to hit “publish” when I first asked for your help to join me in helping Floyd. I was afraid no one would chip in, and I would be left hanging there. But I trusted the Lord. Now as I look back I believe God placed the number “500” in my heart, but in His unending love multiplied it. One of my boys tonight came to me with some money for Floyd, and now the total is $1000.50. Unbelievable.

This is what I know and need to remember…

What a privilege I have been given by God to be able to spend my life giving His love away.

Thank you for helping me help Floyd. I can’t wait to hand him his check and tell him that people from all over the country care for him. I pray that your kindness will reveal to him the heart of the heavenly Father who cares for his needs.

I had been watching your 'chip-in meter' and thought, what a blessing! It far exceeded expectations. God is good, now, just don't forget to post a pic of the proud new auto owner with his choice! :) (if possible) it's awesome to see God's handiwork!

Adorable. I love it. Now you can just pack up the lady bug costume and send it my way and Morgan will wear it next year. LOL

Question: Where do you get all your 'scrap kits'??? I am new to it all, and I have one kit that I got a while back for my blog. Do you just purchase them wherever and then make your own design?

thanks for any help you can give.
