Pillow Covers and Baby Accessories ♥

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. John 14:27
Photobucket

Hallelujah Praise GOD! Thank you JESUS! What a wonderful time I am having with Orders coming in from left to right! PRAISE GOD!!! WoooHOOO!!! God is sooo Good!

This is a wonderful pillow cover and also a custom Breastfeeding Cover! I love ♥.  It’s a wonderful joy to provide unique handcrafted gifts to people that love. Yes LOVE!

And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him. 1 John 4:16

Photobucket
You see, as I dive into God’s love and just admire the gifts that He not only gives me but also gives to others, I stand in awe!

Therefore, since the promise of entering his rest still stands, let us be careful that none of you be found to have fallen short of it. Hebrews 4:11

Photobucket

As I was making these wonderful creations I was coming out of a rest, (Thank God for Holidays such as Thanksgiving! Amen). You see, this thanksgiving I decided to rest….well not by choice, (cough…I got sick) Yes I admit it! I got sick! 😦  Yes….Feel Compassion and empathy for me. ♥ hehe

for anyone who enters God’s rest also rests from his own work, just as God did from his. Hebrews 4:1

Photobucket

In working and owning my own business (wearing all the hats) and seriously striving for perfection and victory every time, thank the Lord we delegate from a position of Victory, Hallelujah, we, I, can at times go over board. Yes overboard. Putting unnecessary pressure on the mind and body.

By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work. Genesis 2:2

PhotobucketEven GOD rested!!! Amen! In conclusion, this is how important it is for us to rejuvenate ourselves with the Lord’s Peace and Rest.
Photobucket

So As I clarify my point on the Importance of Rest, have you considered the benefits of rest?

And God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done. Genesis 2:3

Photobucket
After Resting, Comes…the Blessing.

Although, it wasn’t part of the plan to fall a bit ill. I’m so thankful that I was given the opportunity to receive some much needed help even though it came in the form of what I perceived was a hindrance, actually allowed and gave me the opportunity to rest, to be refreshed and truly go towards another level. ♥ Another level of Blessings! 😀

Photobucket

For the Owner of these wonderful creations…

…I implore you, REST. At times we may look at our schedule and find it scribbled with so much to do and so little time to do it. Don’t forget, that even GOD rested during great times of creative moments and Blessings came right after the rest. I encourage you, Rest with the knowledge that all IS in GOD’s hands and yes He does want you to work with all that you are especially for HIM, but he also Blesses the period after the REST. So Rest assured in GOD’s Mercy and Grace. In Jesus Name, AMEN!

Super Natural Inspiration… Rocky Balboa

I’m sure many of you have seen this…But, I love ♥

Enjoy,

Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It’s a very mean and nasty place and I don’t care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain’t about how hard ya hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done! Now if you know what you’re worth then go out and get what you’re worth. But ya gotta be willing to take the hits, and not pointing fingers saying you ain’t where you wanna be because of him, or her, or anybody! Cowards do that and that ain’t you! You’re better than that!

You need Jesus, Just sayin.

Hosanna in the Highest!!!

Random Awesomeness…Apricot Lane, 3Strands, AGAPE!

Now, our God, we give You thanks and praise Your glorious name. 1 Chronicles 29:13

Photobucket

I don’t know if you all have noticed this Link on my side bar, but let me tell you more about why it’s there…

A few weeks ago, a Marketing Associate of Apricot Lane: New Location at North Hills Mall! (For Local’s of North Carolina Wake County Area) Contacted me.

My First Thought, “Why Me?

Second thought, “Praise GOD! God is Surely Sending the Right People Towards ME! Thank you JESUS, So Cool

Being a Christ Centered business I get turned down, ignored, or I hardly get a response back even if it would be a “NO”, when I reach out to my surrounding community, Businesses who Support Handmade, etc. So I wondered, Why did they choose me to advertise their cause and business? I try to be very careful on what I place on my blog, website, facebook etc, since I know I’m looked at with a Magnifying Glass, so to speak.

So I digged.

I asked my self a few questions.

Is this something I want to support? Are they Christ centered? Do they believe in Jesus?

To my surprise they do have a Christ centered Foundation ♥ Not only that, They are actually GIVING BACK and Helping PEOPLE! AWESOME & HONORED! Truly!
Photobucket

I Got this Straight from their website:

AIM’S GUIDING PHILOSOPHIES

  • Each girl at ARC receives the absolute best. She will get the best healthcare, education and opportunities available. Her worth will never be second-guessed. From her Princess Ceremony to her reintegration, we will spoil her rotten.
  • The identity of a rescued girl is confidential. We do not use real names or show faces. This is for her protection.
  • Christ is the center. The Church is His answer to transforming communities.
  • Sex trafficking is a complex, difficult problem. The solution is not simple or easy. We are committed to fighting on the ground and innovating on the battlefield. Our ministries will change and grow because we are not committed to a ministry, we are committed to a victory.

HALLELUJAH PRAISE GOD!! THANK YOU JESUS!!

But you shouldn’t Shop at Apricot Lane or 3Strands  just because they are or support Christ centered foundations and Support women who were rescued from Sex Trafficking, providing better futures for them, their families and community. Nope.

You should also Shop because they Have Awesome Fashionable Collections! Check them out on Facebook Here: http://www.facebook.com/ApricotLaneTriangleNC

God and the City…Friends. Need I say more?

As iron sharpens iron, so a friend sharpens a friend. Proverbs 27:17

I’m so blessed to cross paths with such amazing and unique people it’s incredible! Thank you Jesus.

Some people say, “There’s no such thing as a friend” I don’t know what your definition may be of a friend but I love what Jesus says:

I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you. John 15:15

We all have flaws, and we all fall down from time to time. One thing that I do know that sometimes GOD picks us up in those moments and it maybe through a person or a friend

I Love the people GOD has placed in my life and I value you all ♥ I love learning about each persons uniqueness and appreciate how wonderful you are and how you accept me for me and I accept you for you ♥ Beautiful

Never abandon a friend–either yours or your father’s. When disaster strikes, you won’t have to ask your brother for assistance. It’s better to go to a neighbor than to a brother who lives far away. Proverbs 27:10

Friends, can encourage, can lift you up, they are GOD’s Gift.

I love it! She designed and made them herself! I know, that’s what I was thinking, WOW.

Friends are Amazing, They are Awesome.

But I believe sometimes we may put to much pressure on our friends to be…hmmm Perfect?

But Jesus would not entrust himself to them, for he knew all men. John 2:24

Every time when I get tempted to unleash a burden that is only meant for GOD…for the Lord, for Jesus. I remind and say to myself this scripture. Not everything is meant to be said, we need to develop a relationship with our best friend, GOD. I suggest, before going to a friend on very private matters, pray and speak to GOD about them and wait on your answer. GOD always answers… ♥ It may be speaking to a friend you may know would understand or it may be that GOD has already solved it ♥

I, after getting blessed and inspired, went to catch up with My first Client and friend Rima! She is so Awesome, She has a baby boy, happily married and working on Her MASTERS!

God brings you the right People into your life at the most incredible TIMES the Perfect TIME!! (hmm, maybe I should of been discreet about that? NAH! 😀 )

It all started the other night, 2 nights ago when a friend invited me to Zumba…

I’m so encouraged, Uplifted and I feel so Blessed & Loved because I know that was GOD just bringing me all I need ♥ Truly living Abundantly ♥

Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28

I believe discretion is important.

A good man shows favor, and lends: he will guide his affairs with discretion. Psalm 112:5

Sometimes I’m PERFECT  J/k at times I do….lack discretion because I would like an immediate Answer, but I know every problem, or situation GOD wants me to Go towards HIM first, for His Guidance, Wisdom and Righteousness…

So next time you feel a need to spill the beans about how you feel or advice for your situation…Cast your cares on to Jesus. HE’S the best!

Imagine, you are also preventing Gossip ♥

My son, let not them depart from thine eyes: keep sound wisdom and discretion: Proverbs 3:21

A Friend is someone you can share a wonderful moment or Positively Charge one to another through words of Love ♥
