$1,000 DONATION FOR PETER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dear Friends,

I am crying and laughing and calling my husband at work as I'm typing this--

just got this comment from Sara on my last post.....

Thank you so much for advocating for these kids. I'm not even waiting for the give away. I clicked right over to Reece's Rainbow and donated to Peter. Now someone go get him!

And Peter's totals just went up to $3,429 !!!!!!!

I asked God today for a sign...a sign that He is in this.

Sara- whoever you are- THANK YOU FOR THAT ANSWERED PRAYER!!


Okay, our giveaway hasn't even started- and I am already seeing miracles left and right. I can't even tell you the phone calls and emails I got today- new items being donated, incredible people who are blogging for this, our own page about this giveaway on the Reece's Rainbow site, my trusty sidekick Michelle Z helping me figure all this out, Lisa from RR getting the perfect gadget thingy set up on my sidebar, so people can donate to these kids by just clicking their button on the side...and now THIS!!!

I am not one of these people who walks around with a bucket-load of faith in my hand at all times. Truthfully, I'm a minnow in the big blogging pond. I am not eloquent, not educated, I don't have much when it comes to ability...I'm a little stay-at-home mama of ten who just loves the Lord with all my heart, and loves these kids. But I am telling you- GOD is getting involved here!!!

Andrea Roberts posted this yesterday on the Reece's Rainbow online forum...

God does not begin by asking us about our ability, but only about our availability, and if we then prove our dependability, he will increase our capability.

Those words are so true- we just need hearts open to God, and He can use us, whoever we are.


Can't wait to see what God is going to do!!!

PURE LOVE GIVEAWAY STARTS TOMORROW- SPREAD THE WORD!!!!!!

We have been praying daily for Peter, Olga, and Kareen over here. It is so wonderful to see the generosity of others! I am trying to spread the word over here.

I'm crying as I type this...I really want that iPad! However, there is a risk. A risk that if I enter, I may win a 'sweet mother/daughter apron' or a 'darling tutu'...

...how 'bout a man's gift?
