Meet Lil' Alicia

This cute little doll baby came home to live with us after our Chapel Women's Ministry had their first yardsale.  Isn't she the cutest thing you ever saw?

It was these boots that made her extra endearing.  Oh, she is precious, to be sure.

This is the Alicia that she is named after (pictured with her husband Jeremiah - the love of her life).

Alicia's brother had a need and the Lord put it on the heart of one of our WM ladies to have the sale.  It was just amazing how God blessed the two day sale.  We actually made $400 to bless Alicia's brother with.

I had to name our newly adopted lil' girl Alicia because in reality I would love to adopt the real Alicia.  What an amazing young woman she is.  She radiates the Lord in all she says and does.  She touches my heart in so many ways.  
Just one observation about Alicia - I doubt she would have ever been in time out as a little girl - but then again who knows.

So today I am sharing pics of our new baby and also of her namesake, a very special young woman.  Most importantly I am praising God for His provision through our yardsale.

Later this week I will share another blessing that occurred at our yardsale - so stay tuned.

Dorothy, this is wonderful. I love your new baby doll. thanks for sharing the story behind the real Alicia too and her hubby :) :) That's awesome to see other women who love Jesus :) :) You write so lovingly of her ;) :)

I'm glad the yard sale went well. I found out our church is having one towards the end of April. It's part of a CITY-WIDE yard sale. It's going to be crazy...but a lot of fun. Plus, I'm gonig to donate a lot of stuff. They can use the money from the sales!!!

Have a great week, Dorothy. Thanks for being a blessing in my life :) :) Love and hugs from Oregon, Heather :)
