Hello and happy Friday! I hope that ya’ll have had a really great week enjoying the last little bit of Summer…Are you ready to dive into this week’s blessings? Let’s go!
1) Feeling Refreshed…
Y’all, I don’t even know where to start with this one! This week has been really REALLY good! We all had a couple of days off last week and spent time as a family not thinking about business plans and problems and it was SO nice! Then when I went back to work on Monday God just started answering all of these prayers that I’d been praying. Showing me a way forward, providing answers, guidance and direction; really He was showing me that He’d had this the whole time! And then to make things better He just threw in a couple of really cool (and totally unexpected) things that made me do a little happy dance all. day. long. 😀
2) A Solid Plan Forward
Part of what has made this particular week so great was being able to nail down a solid plan for the last few months of this year! We are officially entering my FAVORITE time of the year and there’s a million-and-one exciting things to look forward to (and because it’s my favorite time of the year blogging is so. much. FUN.)! (: Posts that I’ve been sitting on sitting on since Spring that I can’t wait to share with you, several holidays, cooler temperatures, parades and festivals, and of course CHRISTMAS! In looking at the calendar for September there’s at least one happy thing to look forward to each week! Many of which are already penciled or penned in! (:
I’m one of those people that likes to have all my ducks in a nice little row. Usually they’re anything but lined up. Spread out among several ponds, upside down, or even backwards. Thankfully due to a lot of prayer and planning and figuring, they are all in the same pond (and mostly right side up)!! And that makes me feel SO GOOD! And to make the day even better we went grocery shopping today and guess what we found???
PUMPKIN SPICE COFFEE CREAMER!!! 😀
3) A lot of Growth…
In looking forward to the end of this year and the first of next year I’ve also been looking back and I’ve seen so much growth this year. God has opened door after door, and given me opportunity after opportunity. I’ve really just begun to see the fruits of nearly three years of dreams, prayers, and hard work. It’s amazing to sit back and realize just how much this little business of mine has grown in such a short time! Dreams that I’ve had for years have finally come true and I feel like I’ve gained a confidence about what it is that God has called me to do.
It hasn’t been easy. Not by a long shot. There’s been a lot of prayer, tears and questions. I’ve wanted to throw in the towel and walk away. But now, now I know that this is really what I was made to do and I’m truly thankful for all the growth and support and love that I’ve received over the last few years. I really can’t wait to see where God takes this next…
