One day, I realized that all the things this baby would "need," were things we already had (mommy's milk, a safe home, and a loving family). Everything else would just be considered extra. I prayed for God to provide us with some of these "extras" and He absolutely did! Every time I look at Anna's completed room, I am so thankful for the way God has shown his love for us. Sometimes, I think we feel guilty for asking God for things we consider to be "frivolous," but we forget that He is the "God of all Comfort," and "The God who Provides!" As I said in this post, God cares about the little things too...the extras.
In this post, I would like to share with you some of the things that He provided us with, once we let him do his thing... (Side note: Isn't it amazing how smoothly things go when we stop trying to control everything???)
Pack bought this from a State Sale while he was traveling with work.

IKEA...we couldn't find a used one in good shape for this price!
Happened upon this at a yard sale and repainted it.
My Mother's Day present two years ago that I FINALLY repainted and found a home for:)
The rest of the pictures are things we bought from Craigslist...our favorite resource!
