A shameless plug for my Jo

In February, Jo is going to Nepal with her daddy.

Not planning on going.

Not hoping to go.

Nope, she's going. Period. No ifs, ands, or buts.

Her mind is made up.

She is going in February. She wants to plant her feet on Nepali soil. But most of all ... she wants to be at the head of the line for giving Bee a big old hug and welcoming her to the family. If all goes well, she'll be escorting her new big sister home.

Now all she needs is $1,500 for a plane ticket.

In typical Jo style, this has not daunted her one little bit. She pulled out her account book, tabulated how long she has to sell off some bunnies, and began plotting other cash-generating opportunities. Among them? Her recent passion for bookmarking making.

In this vein, my little dynamo has recently set up an etsy shop, the better to peddle her wares. As a good momma, I'm giving her a shout-out here. Therefore:

If you'd like to help Jo get one step closer to her dream of meeting her big sister in February, would you please take a gander at her etsy site? And even if you're not in the market for a bookmark for yourself or as a gift to give this year, could you please pray that God brings the funds forward for her? She'd love to know that folks were lifting her desire before the Lord!

Great idea...and you are a wonderful Mum! :)

Praying. Reminds me of the time that my folks were planning a trip to Haiti without my brother and I. We started to pray and roll pennies-they didn't go without us.

Lord, I ask that You will bless Jo as she steps out in faith on this. Provide as only You can. Amen!

Wanted you to know that I too shamelessly plugged for you guys. We are lifting you up in prayer and I wanted all of my friends and family to have that opportunity as well.

Tell Jo best of luck and her bookmarks are simply lovely.

I love it! I went ahead and ordered some of those marvelous book marks, but as I started to think about it...I have a question. Would she be interested in perhaps a "custom" order?

We have all of the cousins over on Christmas Eve and we always give them a little something and your bookmarks would be perfect!

So do you think she could come up with 7 more bookmarks for me at a "custom" price in time for me to have them by Christmas Eve? I would love to sort of choose the charm theme (thus, the custom price). What do you think?

You can reach me here.

I love her initiative!!
