::Crocheting and Peace of Mind ::


Remember when I told you ALL about my plans for opening a shop? 
Remember when I told you-- that I was only sharing these ideas and things with you -- so that I'd be accountable? 

Well, here it is... 
This is the reason.  
Last week and even the week before that, I was bold, confident and so sure of myself. 

I even told you how I was going to get this Shop opened and I was going to do it AFRAID



I can't help myself. Here I am--- working my fingers as fast as I can. Tweaking photos-- researching merchandise, dates, names, sizes... pricing.  At one moment I feel like I'm working!  I'm really doing it. The next minute--- I'm asking myself  "What are you doing?"  almost saying out loud... "You can't do this!"  or "You're not ready."

It is just a small voice inside my head---only at times; causing me distress. But loud enough to  making me doubt. 





I'm still busy plugging away at it.  
I'm trying hard to get some stock built up. Yet the crocheting is satisfying. I leave the computer for a bit... pick up the hook and the thread and let it fly!  I love the way the thread feels between my fingers, especially the cotton. 

I am beginning to pray again. I try and think about God's promises-- 

You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on you; because he trusts in you. ~Isaiah 23:6 

I begin to tell myself~ 
I AM hoping to get the Shop opened up this weekend... The weekend has just begun. There is still Saturday and Sunday... AND! MONDAY...  There is still time yet. 

Please keep an eye out.  I may just get this thing off the ground!!!

Trust in the LORD with all your heart; and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your path straight.

I'm patiently waiting for that etsy shop to open. I can't wait to buy something from you. Your etsy shop will be a success.

Best wishes Pat! Your crocheting is so pretty. It reminds me that I owe you a homemade gift before the end of the year. Gosh, when did we do that? Back in January? How life has hit both of us right between the eyes. I will fulfill that pledge, but it will be a couple of months. Meanwhile I look forward to browsing through your etsy shop. You are always so ambitious and I know this will be a success. Ann
