Praying and waiting...

Well...since our last entry we have had two fundraising opportunities thanks to the Mueller family's help.  Thank you so much.  We love you guys!  We have our home study packet in hand and will soon be completing the home study application and scheduling a date for our home study visit.  BUT first we are in need of much more prayer and provision.  God has taken us by surprise a few times by giving small increments of cash that will be paying our home study fee and adoption fee that is due NOW.  We plan to schedule a jewelry fundraiser in Ringwood and  Edmond sometime after the first of the year.  We are having faith that God is going to provide enough money to pay at least one of the fees due.

We have had requests for more choices of jewelry that Michelle and April have been putting together for our jewelry fundraiser.  So we have been thinking of a few more new necklace and ear ring choices.  Hopefully we will be able to share them with all after the first of the year.  Been trying to finish up our Christmas celebrations with all our family, next come down the Christmas decorations, and then we will be working on the new jewelry selections and posting pictures for all to see. 

Thank you to all who have purchased jewelry so far.  Thank you to all who have been praying.  Please continue to pray and pass on our blog address to all your family and friends.  We want to include as many as we can on our journey to bring Jacey home.  Much love and blessings to all.

It has been awhile since we last blogged.  Sorry.  We have been working and taking care of family.  Had a very nice Thanksgiving.  Spent time with family and friends and ate lots of very good food.  Was able to go out of town and spend time with friends that mean so much to us.  Thank you, Connie and April for the time you spent helping Michelle with our blog.  We love you! 

Wow!  Don't ever doubt that God won't provide.  We are in the process of gathering all the required copies for our home study.  But before we can schedule the actual home visit, we have to pay a fee and provide copies of all paperwork listed.  We don't have much.  And we live paycheck to paycheck most months.  With Christmas coming on very quickly, we knew that we would not have a penny to spare.  April is giving us ideas for fundraisers.  We have scheduled two days this coming weekend to showcase jewelry Michelle and April have made.  We are also wrapping gifts for those who don't care for wrapping or just don't have the time to wrap their gifts for Christmas.  Whatever funds are raised from these ideas will be so greatly appreciated.  We also had a surprise call Sunday night after church from our family in Ringwood.  Thank you so much!!!  And these words can not express the gratitude our family feels for the blessing you have provided.  But there is much more to be done.  And this is just the beginning of our long awaited journey.  In the end, we will all look back on this moment in time and see just what GREAT things God CAN do.  Continue to pray for provision and paperwork to go smoothly.  We love you all very much!!!!

Needing God's Provision

Just spoke with our home study social worker.  Her name is Earlene.  We are to pay the fee for the home study before we are able to start.  We also have our first installment due to Lifeline.  We desperately need prayer for God's provision.  I know God is molding Jay & I into better stewards.  This home study seems to have come at a very costly time of year for us.  We purchased our Tahoe in October.  We had to pay the tag, title and tax in November along with our first loan payment for the Tahoe.  Hunter's consultation with the orthodontist is the middle of this month.  CHRISTMAS IS 23 DAYS AWAY!!!  The kids have no gifts and I haven't even set up the Christmas tree.  I am putting together necklaces and ear rings until my hands hurt and I can do no more.  April suggested we sell poinsettias, but so far am not doing very well with that.  I'm not feeling well today and am not getting much accomplished but a few loads of laundry.  Pray, pray, and pray some more.  This is a depressing day for me. And I know this is just the beginning of more times like this.  But I'm holding on for the awesome times that are to come.  Thank you friends and family for your prayers and thoughts.  I'll see if maybe I can get the tree up today :)
