In the previous post, I mentioned we paid off a fund drive commitment. After I read it back it sounded a little self congratulatory. Let me explain.
1 year ago, Doug & I felt pulled to pledge an unrealistic amount of funds to a vision we totally believe in. We knew we wanted to give but at the time we were so behind the 8 ball we couldn’t even pay our day to day bills. I kind of figured that as long as we couldn’t afford to pledge a small amount, we may as well pledge a larger amount since either way, God was going to be footing the bill. As cliche as it seems to say, we knew God gave us the number in our heads and hearts and would totally come through.
So when we were able to complete the pledge, it was with great giggling we put that check in the envelope. That’s the deal.
