a gift from one Dad to another

i have a story to tell you. as you know on Sunday our small group put on a bake sale for us at our church where they raised over $700. this left us with around $325 to go. i started text messaging family and friends about how well the bake sale had gone and what little we had left to raise. just shortly after that i got a message from my brother saying he had a check with our baby's name on it. wow! i couldn't believe what God was doing in such a short time. so then i was talking to my sister telling her how much we had left after I got my brother's message and she said "you don't have any money left because i just wrote a check for the rest". another wow! i was so overwhelmed. in one day we got everything we needed. so you're hearing me now. WE HAVE ALL OUR MONEY!

but it only gets sweeter. with everything happening so fast we didn't have time to update our blog or anything and then we got a message from some sweet friends that had donated the rest of the money on our blog. another wow! God went above and beyond and he used family and sweet friends to bless us tremendously. i couldn't imagine a sweeter Father's Day gift for a soon-to-be daddy that this gift from God.

we are so thankful to everyone who has participated in all the fundraising no matter how great or small. it counted. we pray God will bless you ten times over for your generosity and love. all we have to do now is pray and wait.
