Thankfulness Day 245-254:: Sorry I've been sick!

Thankfulness Day 245::  Although I have bad morning sickness today I am very thankful for the little life growing inside of me :)

Thankfulness Day 246::  There remains, then, a Sabbath-rest for the people of God; for anyone who enters God’s rest also rests from his own work, just as God did from his. Let us, therefore, make every effort to enter that rest, so that no one will fall by following their example of disobedience. – Hebrews 4:9-11
I haven't been doing any Sweet Lily work on Sundays trying to make it my Sabbath.  It's really given me time to just rest and take a break.  I try to seek the Lord and what He has for me.  Don't get me wrong this can be really hard but having your own business can overtake even your family life and I'm really trying to not be consumed ;)

Thankfulness Day 247::  Today I am thankful that we have Christ as the center of our marriage and so we stand strong through these trials and storms that can easily rip us apart. 

Thankfulness Day 248::  This super cute Tutu with ties on the end is on CLEARANCE!  It's a one of a kind and took me too long to make so I'm selling it for only $25!  It's super full and fits a girl 2T-3T.  Sweetlilytutus.etsy.com

Thankfulness Day 249::  I'm suffering from Vertigo!  Luckily I bought Sea Bands and I haven't had an episode since!  I am very thankful that I am able to buy something to help and have access to such medicines.

Thankfulness Day 250::  What a week!  I had so many orders, almost all with the Owl Theme!  I really feel thankful that people choose to order from me and that God is blessing this business!

Thankfulness Day 251::  The Purse Party I had for the Cambodian made purses was a success!  I've sold so many purses and it all goes back to their ministry.  To think that years before they felt lost and doomed to slavery.  I'm so thankful I can help make a difference in their lives!

Thankfulness Day 252:: All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work. 
2 Timothy 3:16-17  (I'm very thankful that ALL of the Bible is from God, not just pieces!)

Thankfulness Day 253::  I LOVE the rain!  It makes the air feel clean and everything so green.  We are getting more rain then normal and I am thankful for that weather change.

Thankfulness Day 254::  Kai has his first field trip with school today.  I am that nervous parent that doesn't want to send him without me being there!  He loves Jr. Kindergarten though and I'm very thankful he gets to attend there.

Thankfulness Day 240-244:: Cambodian Purses are Here!

Thankfulness Day 240:Today I am thankful for my church and all the people that go there.  I've never found a church quite like it!

Thankfulness Day 241: This week started off with lots of orders.  I just LOVE doing orders, especially custom ones I've never done before!  God is so good and has really blessed me, for that I'm thankful today.

Thankfulness Day 242: We are still praying about Devin's job.  It's so hard to stay in a temp job and never though if they will value you enough to hire you on.  My heart goes out to him and I pray often that they would see the hard work of his hands.  For now we just have to wait.  I could be frustrated and very unthankful but I am reminded of the year without any job.  So I am very thankful that he has full time employment and I will choose not to worry but trust that God has that greater plan for us.

Thankfulness Day 243: Wordless Wednesday! 
Future Police Officer!  Today I am thankful that the boys got to visit a Fire Station and dream a little.

Thankfulness Day 244: I got a shipment from Cambodia this week.  Purses, wallets, nursing covers, aprons, ornaments, scarfs, headbands, and baby booties made from women/girls rescued from Prostitution and given a new life learning to sew at a Safe House.  What a ministry and what a blessing for these girls.  Most were sold into slavery at a young age from their families or their families were tricked into thinking it was education they were getting but they were wrong.  In His Steps International created this ministry to give these women a new life. I'm helping to sell these purses for them and they are so well made!  I've already picked about 5 favorites!  I'm thankful today to do my part in helping supply the needs of these young women.

Thankfulness Day 233-We had a great day at the Fire Station, pics to come! I am very thankful that my boys got to experience that!

Thankfulness Day 234-We visited a church in Carlsbad as a potential place for Devin to lead worship at.  The people were so friendly and they even did a potluck lunch afterwards!  Gotta love those!  I also found a few
people who LOVE ice cream as much as I do!  Imagine that!  So we talked about all the great flavors of course!
Today I am thankful that we got an opportunity to worship there and meet this congregation!

Thankfulness Day 235-I received an order for Twins!  I love twins and it's so much fun to do two matching outfits but make them each a little unique just like the different personalities of twins! Today I am thankful I got to do a 'Twins' order!

Thankfulness Day 232:: Fall!!

The one BIG thing I miss about Illinois is these beautiful fall colors!  We just don't get this in Orange County, CA.  I remember stopping on the side of the road to pick up some leaves or just stare at how beautiful the trees were.  The air would be super crisp too.  I miss it.

Today I am thankful that I got to experience a different place outside of my bubble.
