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!!!!
