Memorial Box Monday

I know it has been a long time since I have done Memorial Box Monday but I don't ever want to forget how God provided!

Like I had said a couple of posts ago I had become very embarrassed and to be honest depressed over the furniture we had. I cannot even begin to tell you the guilt I felt for feeling that way over stupid furniture but it was so bad we didn't even want to sit on it let alone anyone else. Actually someone came to visit a few weeks ago and you could see the disgust on their face and they wouldn't even sit on our couch. The couch had a board under the cushions because the springs had broke and cotton hanging out of it because it was completely worn out.

After a lot of prayer God blessed us with a new livingroom set at 1/3 of what we had planned on paying and trust me we weren't looking at the expensive new sets.

So this is our $99 couch that we love to cuddle on as a family now.

These are my very favorite pieces, my very cool loungy, grab a cup of coffee and a book chairs.

I also have a sofa table and 2 end tables that I have no idea what to do with because we have never had tables before. I can't wait to figure something out to put on them.

I wanted to give you an update on Amaya's Shoebox project. Amaya has sold 21 ornaments so far!!! I can't even tell you how excited this little girl gets everytime she gets an order. Amaya is also a planner so she keeps coming to me asking how much money she has made to buy stuff to fill shoeboxes and she has been making a list of things to fill the boxes with. Amaya thinks through everything and she is even thinking about making sure that the boxes for the 2-4 year olds don't have anything in them that could hurt them.

If you haven't read about her project yet you can read about it here. Can you help us spread the word because she has been praying constantly that God would help her sell 79 more?

Thanks everyone!
