This week is flying by! I have been really enjoying working at the shop, and the girls there have been affectionately calling me "the manager." I'm working on getting a few things together for Christmas - can you believe it???? Anyways, it has been really great to get out there and work again. I really do have a heart for small businesses and retail, and my dream job would be to have my own shop one day. For now, I will help someone else's store be successful :) I am feeling like there are a lot of choices to be made, and if you know me, you know I loathe making choices. So, this is a difficult time for me right now. It seems like everytime I think about those choices, I start praying that I will trust God with every fiber in my being. This verse below has been such a blessing to me for the past fouple of days, and I hope it will bless you if you feel the same as I do!
Proverbs 3:5: 5-12 Trust God from the bottom of your heart; don't try to figure out everything on your own. Listen for God's voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; he's the one who will keep you on track. Don't assume that you know it all. Run to God! Run from evil!Y our body will glow with health, your very bones will vibrate with life! Honor God with everything you own; give him the first and the best. Your barns will burst, your wine vats will brim over. But don't, dear friend, resent God's discipline; don't sulk under his loving correction. It's the child he loves that God corrects; a father's delight is behind all this.
Blessings, y'all!


  1. That is one of my favorite verses. I love the way it is written there! I need to write it down. I am with you on making decisions, why can't everything be done for you?? haha! I will be praying for you. It's so easy to say I trust you Lord, but it's harder to actually do it!

  2. amen amen amen!!!! choices.....and decisions...uuugggghhhhhh. Oh that Father would speak to you the direction that leads to life! Love you dear

  3. That version of the Bible verse is awesome. I hope that you enjoy working at the shop in the meantime! I know that God will put you exactly where you need to be.


    I hope that you enjoy working at the shop until God tells you exactly where you should be ;)!

  5. That's a great verse, Lena! I also need to learn to trust God with everything. And not just pretend to trust Him sometimes.

    I'm glad that you are having fun working in the shop! I'll have to come in one day. I'll be the frazzled mom with two small children praying that nothing breaks!:)

  6. Lena-

    Are you okay? I've been thinking about you.
