When I wake up in the morning, there are several things that usually run through my mind... is the kiddo hungry, do the dogs need to go out, are there orders waiting to be packaged, do I really feel like doing another load of laundry today? But the one thought that I love, that helps me focus all day long, the one thought that really gets me back to where I need to be is this:
And it's not easy. Oh no ma'am it's not. There are days when people are just down right rude, or the dogs have dug yet another hole to who knows where in the yard, or I'm just so exhausted that I don't even want to move. But on those days, He gives strength. You can always choose to be positive and push through.
So I took the old, and made something new and it felt wonderful! I was making and creating things I didn't plan on making, with things I didn't plan on using. The love that I have for the things I do create is so passionate and my heart just overflows with joy for them. And I honestly believe that it's because I do them for His glory.
If you can take anything away from this, please, let it be that when life is lived with your thoughts and actions for God, amazing wonderful crazy things will happen.
