Congrats, Rose, that’s awesome news.

I love it that you’re praying about the business growing but only so far as God intends. There is that tendency for folks to get into their heads what they want or feel they need, and then get mad when it doesn’t go their way when perhaps there was a very good reason for that. I also love that you’re putting confidence in God’s plan for you, even if it involves skills and tasks that you don’t currently think you’re capable of. Again, we get caught up in what we think we can or cannot do and forget that life is growth and growth involves learning new things. Sometimes those new things are skills we never knew we had; sometimes they’re boundaries we need to respect. In either case, this is an awesome update. Onward and Upward!

I am on a break, waiting on a stamp to dry

I wanted to tell you that I forgot that dh’s barber also ordered another coaster set with a cowboy them. Her business partner is into cowboy stuff so that is who it’s for. I will create one from scratch for that part of the order and my wheels are turning already on that.

I will make a good chunk on this. About time! I give the credit to God for this order. He knew I needed the boost for my self-esteem and also needed the money for paying some business bills … taxes, occupancy fees, booth fees, etc. It will all get plowed right back into the business.

Of course, I am hoping that when the recipients recieve their gifts that they love them as much as I do. I also hope they love them enough to make a puchase themselves for gifts or recommend my business to friends and family.

I would like to make this business much more than it is right now, but only as much as what God wants it to be. IOW, I want to grow, but at the rate God wants it to grow and only to the size He sees fit. He knows what I am capable of, much more than I do.
