 Today is the day the Lord has made, rejoice and be glad in it.  Praying for rejoicing in our home.  Satan is attacking.  But that is how the devil works...when you are in God's will Satan will do whatever it takes to lead you astray.Yesterday was a tough day.  We feel that adopting a child is God's plan for our lives, but right now not receiving many approvals from friends and family..............................So please pray for God to change hearts of those who aren't in favor of supporting and being a part of our adoption process. 

Starting Weight Watchers today!!!  Since I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia, I have been lazy and not excercising or controlling my diet the way the I should.  We (Jay & I) are going to do this together, along with the Lord's help.  We can't do it alone.  Weight control has been a struggle for us for many years.  We all are getting older and need to take care of the temple that God has given us to care for on this earth.  One of these days we won't have to worry about fibromylagia pain, cholesterol levels, high blood pressure, and obesity.  We will have new "bodies" in heaven when we meet our heavenly Father.  Can't wait for that day, "when the trumpet of the Lord shall sound and time shall be no more...when the roll is called up yonder, I'll be there." 

Working on finishing up paperwork and making copies of the documents needed for our home study.  It's exciting to know that the time is near for us to schedule our home study meeting.  Please continue to pray for provision of much money needed to pay adoption fees, patience, and for a hedge of protection around our family to keep Satan from attacking.  Love you all, Jay & Michelle:)

A quiet evening at home...just reading a book and relaxing. Much needed for us. We've had much illness (Strep throat, Influenza, vomiting) in our home. The Dr. and pharmacy have received much business from our family these past few weeks. Last weekend April hosted a jewelry fundraiser in her home. We were very blessed with the love and support we received from our friends and family there in Ringwood. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We love each and every one.

Still needing a few hundred dollars in order to send our home study application in. Gathering and making copies of all documents needed for the worker who is over our case. Anxiety is high in our home. Have been putting together jewelry to fill orders from this past weekend. Fingers, elbows, forearms, and neck angry at me because of the time and precise care I'm putting in to complete each necklace and ear ring set. But God is my comforter, healer, and the great physician. I know He will carry us through this part of our journey. This is such a great experience and time of awakening for me (Michelle). I am truly enjoy putting together the jewelry and then seeing my friends actually wear the sets they have purchased. It's such a great feeling to know I made the jewelry everyone is wearing. I am looking at possibly making some more different new styles of jewelry. But right now our main focus is completing the home study. Pray for provision of the rest of the money needed to pay the $1,750 home study application fee.

There is a feeling that only those who have adopted before can it is that you can love someone you haven't even met...this child may not even be born or conceved yet. Our hearts are aching and yearning to hold our child that God is calling us to raise and love as our own. We love you, JayCee!!! Soon we will hold you in our arms.
