Our Dreamed Babies

Posts Tagged ‘dream

God has blessed us with creative minds and I’m so grateful for that.  Lately I have been thinking on other things that we can do to make a profit and save for our treatment.  We are still on board with the pastries business, it has been slow but we had a couple of orders last week. We even got a ten dollars donation from one of our customers. 🙂  But the reality is that we need to save and save and save, yes we need to do it!  And we are working on that. We have always trust Jehovah Jireh and He has never forsake us. He has supplied all our needs and we are trusting him with this one too. The bible says that He owns the silver and the gold and the best thing is that He wants to bless us with what He owns.

Well, I have a new fundraiser idea. A new project to develop in hopes of selling something that will help us make a profit and save for our treatment. I design and create jewelry so I’m planning to make a symbolic bracelet made of semi precious stones with a charm in remembrance of the hope to conceive. My plan is to sell this bracelet to those future mommies that like me, are struggling with infertility and are praying for children. And also to those that have conceive and lost their babies and would like to have a memento, a keepsake in memory of the babies. My intention is not to take advantage of anyone’s pain (just in case) but to create something beautiful that can be a special piece of memory.  After all people buy things like this all the time to remember something or someone special.
I pray and hope that this idea works, that people could see the purpose behind it and support it.

Today I officially started the pastries “business”. Is like an adventure, but without the fun! Last week we thought about baking and selling pastries in order to save funds for our dream. We talked, we planned, we came up with some ideas and I went shopping for all the ingredients. All that was very easy, but baking the pastries and preparing the cute bags is another story, not easy. It took me hours to get 15 bags ready! It’s lots of work. Our plan is to take them to my mother in law restaurant and sell them at the counter when people goes to pay their bill. I know they are delicious and I hope they sell!  They will have a little tag with an explanation on the front, and on the back the ingredients and a liability statement (for just in case).

If this first try works out good and people likes them, we will continue with the sale. We pray that everyone goes well.
