Hello Blogland Friends, it is with a heavy and anxious heart that I am deciding to exit my journey as a blogger and shop owner indefinitely. I will share my reasons but first let me say tht I have enjoyed the ride and have enjoyed my friends and time here. I am going to let going of everything and trust that I am choosing the right path. I feel that an immediate removal of this from myself with keep me from swaying from the path that I am being called. I am sorry for this abrupt change farwell but I am already on another road. One that I am excited to share with you:
I was listening to Follow You by Leeland when I heard God’s call to coordinate a Teen MOPS (mothers of preschoolers) for the many teens in my area that are pregnant and those that already have young children. (It would baffle you how such a small area could produce so many teen moms.) I was struck by the words in the song All my needs You have supplied, when I was dead you gave me life. How could I not give it away so freely? How could any of us not give it away so freely? Our God is amazing to us!
That being said, I have decided to lay my dreams aside and pursue one that God is building a fire within me for. As much as I love the creative arts and creating with my hands I have decided to close my business and myself as an artist for the time being. God is telling me to lay it all down right now and as hard as it is for me, I am going to do it. I would not have been open to this a couple months ago but in a moment the Spirit within me changed everything. At the time, I didn’t know that I was going to be asked to give up such a core portion of who I am. It is very hard. But what God has given to me is too great not to share it more than I do now. It should be my life.
Starting this Teen MOPS is so very important to me. God is orchestrating everything and it is going to be a great experience and hopefully a blessing to our community. Please keep me and this ministry in your prayers. I will miss this more than any of you will ever know. I am going to delete this blog after a week as a final step to show my commitment to this cause. Blessings and peace over all of you.
