God alone is Sovereign

1 Chronicles 29:11

Yours, O LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, for all that is in the heavens and in the earth is yours. Yours is the kingdom, O LORD, and you are exalted as head above all.

November 2 Fundraiser

There is so much to say about the fundrasier that was hosted in Anna Graace's honor last night at Starry Nights that I don't even know where to begin. There were so many people working behind the scenes to make it all happen. There were donations of food & the facility. There were people who started preparing the food over the weekend - making spaghetti sauce & baking cakes & desserts. There were several ladies who spent their entire Monday setting up & preparing the rest of the food for the spaghetti dinner. There were COUNTLESS volunteers during the event who set the food up, set up the buffet, poured drinks and cleaned up trash. There was one sweet friend who helped people sign in at they entered Starry Nights and coordinated all of the donations. There are probably other people who were doing things that I didn't even know about. The details of the whole event are overwhelming - God was certainly using his children last night to minsiter to our family in a a BIG WAY. So... in addition to the volunteers there were so many wonderful friends & family members who came to the event to help support us in a physical & financial way by donating money toward Anna Grace's medical expenses. This is SO HUMBLING to us. I don't know for sure, but I would guess that there were probably 200 people who were in attandance last night at Starry Nights. It was overwhelming to see so many people praying for and supporting our family in such a physical way. We feel so blessed and are so thankful that God has provided for our needs - our need for friends to help encourage us during this difficult time and for providing for our family in a financial way. Brian & I prayed this morning that God would bless each one of you and that He will give us clear guidance about Anna Grace's medical care AND that we would be good stewards of the resouces He provided us through last nights fundraiser. So, today the Bentley family is a little worn out - but its a really good kind of tired. Even though we don't know why our daughter is sick we know that God is holding us in HIS hand and that he is going to take care of us.
