An update: as we're preparing for the IMB Candidate Conference the first week in March, we have begun the process of eliminating stuff. WooHoo! This part will be fun! We will need to sell almost everything we own in the next five months. Who knew that selling our possessions, even the ones we still enjoy and are a little fond of, could be this much fun. It's liberating actually! and we feel very blessed!

Sunday afternoon was the first taste of success. We cleaned out the garage!!! This was quite a feat for us. My husband is very handy with wood and quite gifted at computer technology . . . so we had all kinds of wood scraps, old computers and monitors, along with the normal junk that one accumulates in a garage.

Then yesterday was the trip to the dump. There's just something fun about hurling old, bulky computer monitors off of a trailer down into a dumping container. Even the kids enjoying hurling things they could lift. $31 (dump fee) later we are 960 pounds free of junk!!! And for the next week and a half, the garage will be a staging area for the first of our two BIG garage sales.

So make plans to travel (near of far) to our house in Anna, Texas on Saturday, February 23rd. Here's 3 & 1/2 reasons you should make the trip!
  1. I'd love to meet the handful of people who occasionally read my blog that I have never met personally.
  2. Most garage sales are a waste of time . . . but not this one. We're not selling junk, we're eliminating to go overseas with the IMB. (so I guess I could throw "noble cause" in there as well)
  3. We'll make you a deal! Come buy our stuff!

Psalm 145:3 Great is the LORD, and highly to be praised, And His greatness is unsearchable.
v.10 All Your works shall give thanks to You, O LORD, And Your godly ones shall bless You.

Wish I wasn't three states away...I would definitely be there. I'm a bit envious, I think. How liberating to be flinging junk!
