I thought I'd share a little glimpse of what I've been up to during some of my "free" time...you know, late at night, in my pajamas and while the kids are sleeping or preoccupied with morning cartoons. I've opened up a little "shop" of my own, it's called 'Little Revelations', and if you've been following me on instagram or facebook, you've probably caught wind! Being a mom, I just figured I'd make things I already make for my kids or would want for my kids. I am not always brave when it comes to trying something new, I get extremely nervous putting myself and my talents out there...anyone else with me? I decided, I'd take a leap, try not to worry too much and see what happens. Here are some glimpses of GOOD:street food + design market, that I got to participate in...
I won't lie, I was nervous the whole time! We didn't do too bad though, and most of all, I had my love by my side the whole time and some really sweet feedback. It's such a great event in itself, so it was fun to be on the vendor side this time.
I'm continuing to try to remind myself not to overthink the road I am on, to continue to let God have control. To take leaps of faith big and small, and learn from every experience.
If you want to take a look at some of my goods, you can! I have an online store here and you can also find me on facebook here.
Sometimes Steve and I can sink into the 'conservative' life. It's a bit of a smoother road if you don't always go down an unknown path. He has been bringing to my attention the parable of talents, Matthew 25:14-30.
If you're not familiar with it, I'll paraphrase. A Master goes out of town and gives 3 of his servants money to invest for him. When he returns he finds that two of the three, did just as he asked, they invested the money and it multiplied. The Master was quite pleased. The third however had the following to say:
“The servant given one thousand said, ‘Master, I know you have high standards and hate careless ways, that you demand the best and make no allowances for error. I was afraid I might disappoint you, so I found a good hiding place and secured your money. Here it is, safe and sound down to the last cent.’" -Matthews 25:24-25
The master was pretty upset when he heard this and had some 'choice' words for him (I'll let you read it yourself). The point was he did not invest what his Master had given him. He did nothin with it, "buried" it!
I don't want to bury what my Master gives me. I want to try and do something with it, remembering, that my master does allow for error, he gives grace instead of punishment for those seeking him. I will try to multiply the investment he's made in me.
