My shop is an experiment of trust.
I never thought it would happen. I had ideas, dreams, and goals.
But I knew that I could never really do it on my own. I was a scientist--and the opposite of a creator.
I held myself back with the lies I believed.
So I prayed to the God of the universe about opening a little shop.
Talked with my husband, and sought council of good friends.
And opened my doors.
The early days were filled with so much energy. Learning new techinques, constantly researching ways to make products better. The joy of the first sale was so much that I thought my heart could burst.
And somewhere along the way a bit ago I began to get prideful. I had created the shop. I was successful.
And my heart got ugly. A few months of rough sales, one unhappy customer and I was right back clinging to the God I had trusted to open this shop.
And the funny thing is--it's been His shop the whole time. I just get to work in it. And for a period of time I forgot. So now, as I start to venture into new items, that's my prayer. This is HIS shop, I just get to play a part.
I want to give one of you a gift certificate for $30 in my shop--go wild! Have fun! Get yourself a little something--or two!
