I've been trying to think of a way to honor Sara on her birthday next month---especially since I thought I'd be there to celebrate it with her. Here's what I've come up with!
Keep the Change!
From July 13th to August 13th
It's pretty simple:
*Find a container--it doesn't have to be anything fancy--an empty cup, an empty jar, a bucket...whatever you have. (I can email you a picture of Sara to put on the container, if you want. Just let me know!)
*Put the container in a visible place in your home---next to your purse, on the kitchen counter, on your dresser.
*At the end of the day, empty all the change from your pockets and wallet into the container. Say a prayer that Sara will be celebrated on her birthday and know that she is loved.
*On Monday, August 13th (Sara's birthday), take your container to the bank and cash it in.
*Deposit the money into Sara's FSP on Reece's Rainbow or the Chip-In on the right side of the blog.
This is a very simple way for all of us to bless Sara on her birthday--even if we can't celebrate it with her.
I have a jar of change that I've been saving since the adoption started. I can't wait to cash it in and see what's in it.
If you want to participate, leave me a comment here and let me know! You can also RSVP on the facebook event. I'll keep a running list of people who have agreed to pray for and bless Sara during the month leading up to her birthday.
So, start looking for the perfect container.
