Where God Leads Us

Who hasn't wondered what God has planned for us. I learned a long time ago that it's best to listen and be obedient, because he always manages to get us where he wants us. We can be obedient, and go the best route, (which may not always be easy). Or we can run away from him.

It was like that when God chose my DH for me 28 years ago. I met DH at a wedding. We went on a couple of dates, but I got scared and blew him off. I wasn't use to a guy paying such attention to me. Anway, fast forward 9 months. Out of the blue DH shows up in my mind....I hadn't thought about him since forever, but there he was in my mind. After a couple of coincidences,(like who really believes in those?), I contacted him. 2 months later we were engaed and 13 months later we were married.

Where am I going with all of this? Well, about 18 months ago, a coworker asked me if I ever thought of selling my cards at craft shows. Another co-worker, who has her own jewelry business has been after me to start a business. Several since....and a lot more recently have made comments that have gotten me to seriously think about starting up a business. After talking with my daughter yesterday, I decided that I was going to move ahead with this.

So where do I go from here? Craft shows, sell on-line, or put my cards in various small gift shops in the area? Well, today, God showed me which direction he wanted me to go in. One of my good friends from church has her own little gift and craft supply store. Today I helped her do a card making class at a local church. We were talking afterwards, and she offered me a business proposition. She asked me if I would design handmade card sets for her. She has such vision for her business and I'm honored that she would consider me to be part of that vision.

So, I'm going on a new adventure and I'm excited about it. If it's one thing I've learned, it's to Listen and obey. Nothing but blessings come to those who do.

Blessings!
Roxy

Roxy you are so generous with your comments on my blog, and with generosity like that how can you fail?

You just have to give it a go, if you don't you will never know how well you would have done, the cards are a no brainer, you have nailed that side of things easy peasy, the rest will fall into place 'cos as you say it is the path you have been pushed to take.

Don't you dare give up the blog though, we need to know how things are going.
