My Fish Bowl

Dear Ones:

This is a crazy week. I have a lot of MK appointments which is a good thing, and Eric is working a lot of over time. We are doing all we can do to bring in the $$ for our adoption debt. Even though I have nothing new to report I keep hoping and preparing for the day that I do. Emotionally there are good days and then the other kind. And sometimes it is minute by minute. Today was one of those minute by minute days but my sweet, precious Noah brought me encouragement. He said Mom " I think when we bring Mercy home then we will know why everything happened the way it did." How precious is that boys sweet faith? I couldn't even talk I just welled up and hugged him.

The picture above is my MK fish bowl creation. I will put this in a local shop and reward those interested with complimentary facials. This I am hoping is a way to get outside my circle and expand my customer base. I have really been so encouraged by my new endeavor. My self esteem was sinking with other things I tried. I felt like I wasn't good  at anything that was really going to help us in the financial department. This has been fun and profitable. PRAISE GOD! If any of you reading this are interested in finding out about the opportunity this would be the month to join. MK is offering a $100 rebate check to all new consultants once a minimum inventory order is placed. Translation your starter kit would be free. Just let me know if you would like more information. Offer expires August 31st.

Well, I guess that is it for now. I am so happy I have found the time to post again. Eric is at a school board meeting so he wasn't needing my attention :)

Just please keep praying for us. Sometimes we are very weary with the wait and esp. a wait without any information or answers. Somehow I think Noah is right :)


  1. Eric is so needy... haha j/k

    That's awesome what Noah said.... and it's true, one day you'll know! We're contiually praying for y'all!

    And like I told ya before, I'd help out with the MK stuff if facials didn't discriminate against the male gender.

  2. I'm so glad to hear you are busy with appointments! Your fish bowl creation is really pretty so I'm sure you'll have lots of interest.

    Sometimes its hard not seeing the big picture, but we have to trust that God creates the most beautiful picture of all. I definitely think your Noah hit it right on the head.

    I'm praying for your journey...

    Cast your cares on the LORD and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous fall.
    Psalm 55:22

  3. Hi Michelle,

    Just got home from the Board meeting! So excited about what God is doing for DCA!

    I haven't been on your blog for weeks! So good to read about all you've been going through BEYOND MK!

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU AND NOAH! What a treat to celebrate your birthdays so close together. = )

    Noah is right on the money! You WILL know and again, when you hold Mercy all these days will blow in the wind. = )

    Much love, Cheryl

  4. I have been praying for you as you all have been on my mind lately and your hard wait-I almost said something to Eric at the meeting tonite but didn't. Now I know why you've been on my mind-God was asking me to pray for you! He's good like that :) I am so sorry for the ache this puts on your heart-and to have no information or answers is the hardest kind of faith to muster-cling to Him and He'll carry you all!!

  5. That box is GORGEOUS Michelle. You did a great job, it is very inviting. I'm so glad to hear MK is working out for you. :)

  6. continuing to pray...

    I finally posted on the camping "experience"...YUCK!

  7. Hi Michelle :) Good luck with the MK stuff I bet you will do great. I should look into I could really use some help witht he adoption costs...anyway I love what your son said. AND he is right :) Have you heard anything about Guatemala opening up ?

  8. Praying for encouragement for you in the waiting. Trust God for your finances...where He calls us, He enables.

    Glad you are enjoying your MK job.

    Noah appears to have the gift of Wisdom. Glad he spoke the words to your spirit.



"As for me and my family, we will serve the Lord."
