33 weeks! Baby Shower!

“‘If you can’?” said Jesus. “Everything is possible for one who believes.” Mark 9:23

This past Saturday I had my baby shower at the park & I turned 33 weeks! It was amazing! I had a great time and was blessed to share it with friends and family. There is a time for everything. If you would of told me I’d be this happy, married and expecting our first baby boy I’d laugh, hard, in your face. The joys that I have now are just incredible and I know that’s from living a life with Jesus Christ.

Every day and every moment I experience the Awesomeness of our God. It’s truly incredible. God’s Word is true beyond measure and I’m so blessed to have agreed with my Hubby that we would follow Jesus. It’s really not that hard. It’s like that motivational video about success. If you want success as bad as you want to breath..then you’ll be successful.

Although things may shake us, such as becoming new parents, I’m truly just clinging to JESUS, His Word and just believing.

Immediately the boy’s father exclaimed, “I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!” Mark 9:24

I’ve noticed, that in believing, you have to stay positive. Sure unbelief may come and side swipe you but just as this boys father exclaimed “I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!” That’s what we sometimes have to do when approaching the throne of Grace, when doing a Good work that Glorify’s the Father. We have to humble ourselves enough and ask for help in every area including our faith and belief.

Thank GOD for HIS Grace. Thank God that HE covers us with Love and loves us no matter what. What ever you are believing for or hoping for don’t give up, start paying attention to what you are thinking because when you worry you are actually adding on to your unbelief. Not allowing your faith to work.. So think Positive so Positivity can dwell in your life. What’s positive? LOVE, How can you know? By studying God’s Word, by meditating, not on your worry, but on God’s Word.

“So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it. For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.”

Lately... I’ve been listening to His whispers. “Only Believe.

Cravings? Nope. ♥ I can basically eat what ever I want with no adverse reactions. I’m blessed!

Pain?  Not really! Just a lil hip pain here and there. But all in all feeling Good! I do have a hard time getting up sometimes and now I waddle 😦 oh and after the baby shower my feet were aching I was on my feet for most of it 🙂 running around getting everything ready! Phew!

What they say? “You’re belly is not that big” or “You’re all belly” 😀

Feeling? Pretty good surprisingly.

Dear God. Thank you, I won’t give up.

Lord,

Thank you so much for being in my life. Thank you for waking me up this morning with the whisper of “Don’t Give Up“. Life can have many ups and downs and I remember before, before I acknowledged your existence. I know there’s an enemy and we have to be strong. Sometimes it’s hard, especially the battles we face. But thank the Lord, Thank you Jesus that I have made a great decision, and that’s the Day My husband and I decided to truly follow and love you with all that we are.

I never dreamed I’d be where I’m at today. Healthy, sane, with a baby on the way. I can’t believe you have blessed us as much as you have. It’s truly incredible. It’s funny, It’s funny how people can make fun of you because of your beliefs or because you do things differently then them.

Help us to stay in your will, Help us to achieve our goals and dreams and bring Glory to your name. Yea, the past may sometimes taunt me, may sometimes sneak up, but I won’t let it defeat me. I’m not who I used to be. I love writing to you. Especially when those moments come when I’m facing a difficult Storm. Help me to remain Strong! Help me to write your word on my heart and let it flow out like life waters.

Help me remember that we are all going through a battle and that the enemy is the accuser of the brethren.  To be on your side and speak kind words, words of encouragement and power. We all have been knocked around, help me remember, no matter what smile someone has they can be going through a tough time.

Help me to remember when someone wrongs me, to pray for them, forgive them and love them. Help me to remember what you have done for me, because any wrong that anyone has or will do to me, is nothing compared to the wrongs I’ve committed and I may only be judging my self if I judge them.

Help us to remember that we are all sinners, but with CHRIST, we are made righteous. And in this let us seek what righteousness is, let us search for what Love is and let us remember that we love HIM because He first loved us.

In Jesus Name Amen.

Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. Matthew 11:29 (Jesus)

 

Hosanna in the Highest!!!

My Top 5 Fab Fabric Pick of the Week! Organic

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things. Phil 4:8

 photo 4bd9bb3b-9562-4ee3-aa44-6bd43a40677f_zpsfa7bce8b.jpg

There’s nothing like being submerged in what you love.

This week’s theme is inspired by exactly what I’m doing. Eco-Friendly. It’s a process as all things. But I will say that in all things there’s always a challenge or a giant to confront.

Sometimes our giants can be in the form of a thought, or even our own selves. There’s always a mountain, some can either wonder about the mountain for years or…We can decide to move the mountain from our path. The choice is ultimately up to us.

We can’t be afraid. We can’t be afraid to be AMAZING! Yea sure, disappointments may come but why not stay in the positive and Knock those thoughts down with, optimism. Instead of “What if something goes wrong.” Why not say “but what if something Amazing comes of this!” Get excited and stay expecting Great things. And a reminder, Don’t limit the One who Created the Universe. Amen! Thank you JESUS!

Now that’s a different mindset and one I’m working on daily.

 photo OrganicHomeDecorCanvasFabric_zpsb2ad3924.jpg

To be honest I ask God all the time for Help. There are moments that I have to stop and confront what ever is throwing off my game or at least threatening it. We all have our moments, but, like the good book says,

for though the righteous fall seven times, they rise again, but the wicked stumble when calamity strikes. Proverbs 24:16

Nothing is a surprise to God and instead of being a copy why not be organically true. Start with yourself. Be true to yourself.

Had to pick this shade of Green! So Gorgeous! And also reminds me of Eco-Friendly 🙂

 photo OrganicCottonBlockprintedFabric_zps03dc99a0.jpg

All of these fabrics are organic. Amen!

It’s up to us to do what is Right, not what is easy. Don’t give up.

Until Next Time! Ciao!

Fire tests the purity of silver and gold, but the LORD tests the heart. Proverbs 17:3

Fall, it’s rapidly approaching. I’ve been honored to work with some incredibly talented individuals this weekend. To fully showcase my fall collection and I’m thankful that I can also give some recognition to some incredible individuals.  Shout out!

I’ve also thank these ladies who modeled my bags with gusto. They not only loved and wanted my designs, hehe, but they also modeled their little hearts out. Thank you Jesus for it all!!!

 photo IMG_5483_zps555d7720.jpg

I’ve created some fantastically amazing bags and I’m thankful to God for just always providing a way even when there is no way.

The mind of man plans his way, But the LORD directs his steps. Proverbs 16:9

I’ve learned a great lesson, “Over prepare, and then Go with the Flow”. Although not everything went according to plan I’ve also learned to stay positive even when things may not go my way. I did have a moment, but I was blessed enough to be around Positive individuals 🙂  Lord you are AMAZING!!!!!

I’m thankful to Jesus that HE tests our hearts. HE Guides and loves us no matter what.

Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge, but whoever hates correction is stupid. Proverbs 12:1

As followers of Christ to live righteously, I believe it’s extremely important to write GOD’s words on our Hearts and take heed to them.

What I’ve learned is that GOD doesn’t tell us to do anything for His Good, because remember even the rocks would praise Him!

But Jesus answered, “I tell you, if these become silent, the stones will cry out!” Luke 19:40

God Loves us so much that it’s for our own happiness and well being that He gives us instruction. It’s for our own sake, that He’s given us many gifts including His wisdom, understanding, discernment are all His Gifts and they are all in HIS Word, they are all in the Bible.

Jesus, Lord, God, Thank you so much for just guiding and directing my steps, thank you that we may not see the whole picture but we can trust in you! Thank you that if we work with all our hearts for you we truly receive something special that no one can take away. The knowledge of knowing you did your very best, with love in your heart is the best feeling in the world when we do our best for YOU.

I hope you all enjoyed the Behind the Scenes Pics!

Until Next time! Ciao!

32 Weeks! I’m getting Big!

Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last, but we do it to get a crown that will last forever. 1 Corinthians 9:25

 photo 136e9713-6075-40c2-a027-ab7a5ee5da20_zpsbae4c255.jpg

Wow. You know…God is incredible. He truly opens doors and shuts the ones that need shutting. These last couple of weeks have been crazy busy for me. I’m just in the mindset to prepare everything before Baby Mendible arrives safe and sound into this world. I truly want to take a 2 month break, possibly blog in between but really just spend some well deserved quality time with my baby boy Coming in September!

I just have something inside of me that wont give in, that just wont give up. No matter what comes into my life or what may get in my way I want to do the best I can with the passion and talents that God has given me. I feel as though, the best is yet to come!

How can I tell my future child/children “GO for your Dreams” when I myself am lagging in that department? You feel me?

So I got to work smart, I got to work wise. I cannot allow my time to be a battle between baby and everything else. Between family and all the rest. I just can’t. So I’m working hard now that I may have a break and take everything in a successful stride. My family needs my time and so does my dream and if Lord willing there’s a way that I can manage my time wisely, then I’m there! You know? All I can say is…Thank you Jesus for your protection, your guidance and your wisdom, please continue to Guide our lives and the lives of our loved ones, In Jesus name. Amen!

Excuse the mess in the back ground, oh and that hole, yup that one  😦

To be compeltely honest I’m having an incredible time and the time of my life! Regardless of the ups & downs that comes from life I’m enjoying each day. Yes some days I fail and my flesh may be weak, but I know who I am in Christ and He lifts me up each day 🙂

Lately... I’ve been preparing for my 2012 Fall Collection! OH YEA! More about that tomorrow!

Cravings? Nope. ♥

Pain?  I’m having lower back pain.  :(  .All worth it! Yes All worth it. No complaints it is what it is! Some headaches and a few extremely tired days. Loving every minute!

What they say? “Stay off your feet” “Enjoy this quite time while it lasts”

Feeling? I’m still not done, I have much to do and I just can’t give in to the sweet allure of the bed!
