Although many days I truly struggle with where I am going with this blog, I do enjoy its role in my life. I love that its giving me an outlet to write. My writing is not where I want it but its definitely further along than its been in a long time. The fact that I am writing in a public forum is a huge deal for me. Also, the friends I have made through blogging has been amazing and so very encouraging. I look forward to being more intentional with those friendships that have formed.
Over Christmas, my sales had gone up. It, at one point, was almost overwhelming but it was so much fun. Its opened up a creative side in me that I look forward to. I've been exploring new ways to create and sell and its truly been a joyful process. I can't believe God has allowed this to be an outlet for me. Although this will feel like a shameless plug, I did want to share with you my latest creations. I am deeply proud of these pieces and am just so super excited to share them with you. There are codes available should you want to purchase them (no pressure). I'd love love love if you tweeted, pinned, facebooked, etc about these new additions. I'll send you a 30%off code if you help plug my shop in 5 different ways. Links are available below if you want to go directly to the shop.

This one, for me, will be harder to articulate because I am still in the process of figuring them out but I will try. I have a few friendships that I truly feel are God given gifts for me. The kind that I know are perfectly wrapped gifts from God to Me. They give me life and energy and show me a glimpse of what His love is for his people and for me.
I also have friendships that I am beginning to see are the other side of that. I know they are gifts from God but intended for the other person. They are entrusted to me for His glory and not my own. They require more energy, forethought and trust than the previously stated ones but they are gifts none the same and are precious beyond words. I am learning more and more each day the value of those friendships. They bring me outside of myself which, quite honestly, I desperately need.
These are some of the things I am grateful for and feel honored and blessed by God to have them in my life. What are the things in your life that make you happy, bring you joy or make life worth living? I dare you to write a post, comment below or tweet out what those are. Believe me it will open your eyes up to some amazing things if you take time to discover what they are.
