The story behind our beads. I just have to say that God is good and the beads were all His idea!!
My kiddos kept coming up with ideas of things that they could sell to help us raise the funds to bring their brother home. Although their ideas were sweet, I knew they would not sell. I didn't have the heart to tell them though so I began to pray that the Lord would give me an idea of something we could work on as a family. Well, at 4am (why is it always when you are sleeping) the Lord woke me up and laid the beads on my heart. We had been given a HUGE box of magazines for our garage sale and now I knew exactly what we were suppose to do with them.
We cut long strips of magazine papers, hand roll them into beads, hand paint each bead several time, spray each bead, & string each bead. Everyone...all the way down to the babies help :)
I pray you enjoy our beads as much as we enjoy making them. May our bead be a reminder of God's faithfulness and a reminder to pray for our sweet son, Solomon, & our family as we wait to bring him home. We hope Solomon's story blesses all!
UPDATE: We are HOME with our precious son and he's doing fabulous!! Just wanted to let you know that we will continue to make our Solomon Beads to help pay for his many medical costs.
