Sunday Reflections Presents: If We Ever Needed God More it’s Right Now!

In a world full of uncertainty, many grow weary and faint. Questions arise like, what will I do, where will I go, what about my children, my job, my family, the future , my life! Etc. But an age old assurance has calmed many a restless soul or great fear.

"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.

Too often we rely on our own strength to get us through our everyday lives but there is one who offers a rest and peace for our, all to often, weary souls. Whatever the circumstance, small or big, there is no situation to great or too small for God to handle; If we would be willing but for a moment to open our hearts to let him in. He is but a prayer away. Even the faintest of prayers He hears and answers.

Now sometimes people ask, “why would God care about such things?” Well just like a caring parent cares about every aspect of their child’s life (big or small), God cares for each and every one of his precious little ones, you and me!

Is it ever too late to come to God? Nope! If we ever needed God more it’s right now. No matter how old your child may get he/she will always be your precious “little one”. God is waiting to hear from His precious little one today. Won’t you come?

Informative Tuesdays Presents : The Finish Line!!

 I just recently found out there are many on who are full-time Etsy Sellers. If you’re thinking what I was thinking then you are probably wondering how they did it! Well if I had to sum everything up in two words I’d have to say “Hard Work”; yep sometimes the very words we hate to hear. If only life was a walk in the park.  Now hopefully these two words did not frighten you off. Most everything achieved in life comes through some sort of diligence, sacrifice, sweat, a few tears (maybe lol) endurance and yes, hard work. My time with Etsy, although brief (not quite a year), has been both rewarding and challenging. I almost threw in the towel many times but many an encouraging word and corrective criticism from my fellow Etsians, kept me going.

An old wise woman once said to me, “If you don’t stick in the race, how will you see the end” Words to definitely live by wouldn’t you say? And she was right. Sure I want to be fulltime on Etsy and have sells galore! And yes I think I even like the sound of being my own boss if you will, but quitting in the middle of the race won’t get me there.

Maybe you too are running this race to become a successful Full-time Etsy Artist or entrepreneur or whatever. Well, I invite you to run this race with me. It might not be a bed a roses and it may seem a tad longer then intended at times but if we endure, if we embrace our hard work if we simply hang in there we will make it to the finish line.

For those not familiar, Etsy is a place for those who want to sell their homemade, vintage, or supply items. (go to for more information).
