On Saturday, it happened.
After six months of collecting clothes, money, and supplies, we set up our used-clothing boutique for under priveleged teens at a local community center.
Through generous donations of clothes and/or money from our friends and loved ones, we were able to bless over 30 girls and send them home with a trash bag full of clothes, gift bag of cosmetics, and bellies full of pizza and desserts.
It was exhausting and trying and the devil is good at interferring when you’re trying to serve God, but we survived and hopefully were able to show them a glimpse of God’s love for them.
Imagining those girls at school today wearing their new clothes and feeling good about themselves makes my heart happy. And, I bet, God’s too.
(P.S. Extra credit if you can spot any clothes I’ve previously worn on the blog…)
