A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you. Psalm 91:7

GOD is so Awesome He knows how to cheer us up!!! Yesterday was the Hubby’s B-day and He says He’s 22 forever. Haha, I will respect his wishes and I will not say his age. Yes so it was a good day and we had agreed to not buy any gifts but I did make him a card and a wallet :D. Although he’s asked for a few add-ons and I will be hitting the drawing board to give him a better prototype :). He makes me better.

However this post is about the new Bag at the Shop! To be honest, I love this bag, maybe I’m biased because I love every bag I make but hey, I can’t help it if I see God’s miracles in each bag!

 photo DSCF0854_zps0187890f.jpg

I’ve noticed that in each creation I make, God has a story, a whisper or a word and I just can’t help but share. It’s amazing and I do love going back and reading some of them. They are so encouraging and sometimes I need a lift me up!

This bag just represents to me, Perseverance! Because it’s not about just staying passive and not doing anything. It’s about Going through the storm and doing all you can to stay afloat even if it’s just praying, or staying positive.

It says in the word:

The way of the sluggard is blocked with thorns, but the path of the upright is a highway. Proverbs 15:9

 photo DSCF0856_zps03f5e4c8.jpg

It hasn’t been easy but it’s been worth it. Being a momma to be, being preggers you go through so many ups and downs. And just because I’m tired doesn’t mean to just give up and not do anything.

On the contrary, the Blessing is going to come regardless of what I do. This baby is coming no matter what, but if I’m diligent in trying to work out, so that I may have a smoother delivery, pulling my weight around the house, allowing PEACE to breathe, continue to pursue my dream and finish as much as I can to prepare for my baby boy while also praying that all will go as God wants it to go, knowing He loves me, although it’s difficult at times, it’s so worth it. Just knowing I’m giving my all for God, for my family for my dreams. It’s amazing. Just like a workout where you pushed your limits and you know you did all you could, you ran as far &  as fast as you could.

Nothing can replace that feeling. Sometimes you gotta get uncomfortable to feel good. You gotta do what you know is right even when it’s hard, even when it hurts, to receive a reward. The reward of Peace, of knowing you Can even when it seems impossible. Of trusting GOD all the way through and not giving up because the Blessing is Coming, but how will you receive it? Would you even recognize the blessing? Or would that blessing be a burden? A burden because you haven’t prepared the way for it to arrive smoothly? Just food for thought.

And although I was working on my fall collection, on other business endeavors, business owner responsibilities on top of being pregnant & a wife, I finished what I dreamed I would finish, to have a bag in my shop! Yes! This first bag, which has so much detail and so much work behind it. I hope the owner of this wonderful Tote not only appreciates something made by hand but also appreciates the materials and the will to fight to make what seems impossible possible.

The materials made in this bag is from up cycled materials. This is an Eco-friendly Bag. GOD gives Beauty for ashes. What we do can not ever be enough but God transforms the smallest sacrifices into great treasures.

Hallelujah! Thank you Jesus! I’m Thankful!!!

Until Next time! Ciao!

At The Shop! Cosmetic/Make Up Bags!

Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.” Mark 10:9

 photo IMG_3799_zpsd5b6dded.jpg

Wow, God is so incredible, He brings tears to my eyes. Hallelujah! PRAISE GOD! Thank you JESUS!

This life is a fight! A fight between Love & what ever else you would like to call it. So many things ring true in Love and War. I can’t help but reflect and look back at broken hearts.

I for one know what it’s like to be broken, crushed. I know.

I know what it’s like to try to come up for air and take just a shallow breath if you’re lucky. Being held in the depths of  a dark sea. Yes I know.

I also know that there is Hope. That the battle is not ours.

He said: “Listen, King Jehoshaphat and all who live in Judah and Jerusalem! This is what the LORD says to you: ‘Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours, but God’s. 2 Chronicles 20:15

 photo IMG_3789_zps72ef1c6e.jpg

During the construction of these wonderful Cosmetic/Makeup Bags I wondered and I’ve pondered. Then I waited, and while I waited I remembered….

“But those who trust in the LORD will find new strength. They will soar on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.” Isaiah 40:31

Many of us have a facade, a mask of false emotions the brushes and powder formed by the lingering feelings we’ve received from others including ourselves. One that we take the time to put on each day. Some mastered by years.

How many times are we going to rely on others? For our self worth? Our beauty or lack there of? How many years are we going to let this powder weigh us down. Allowing others to be in control of our good days or bad.

When Jesus has done it all for us. He’s torn down the veil and revealed to us the truth.

So many of us are our on prisoners behind the bars of our feelings. Feelings of guilt, loss, pride and we always point the finger. Whether to ourselves or others we blame everyone including ourselves when the truth is….

 photo IMG_3778_zps5631af77.jpg

He’s washed away our sins. Why do you rather hold on to the mask then let go and see the truth. No, that wasn’t a question.

For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline. 2 Timothy 1:7

To the Owner of these Cosmetic/Makeup Bags:

I for one love to put on makeup now and then. But I’m not taking about the outside. I’m taking about the inward man;

For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day. 2 Corinthians 4:16

Let these Makeup bags be a reminder to let go, to let go of the feelings that are holding us back and to embrace JESUS Christ and all of His Glory,

We are Righteous Redeemed, FORGIVEN!

Don’t forget, YOU are a NATURAL TRUE BEAUTY… male or female you don’t have to be a chic to be Beautiful ♥

AT THE SHOP! SKOOL DAYZ Collection!

The fear of the LORD teaches a man wisdom, and humility comes before honor. Proverbs 15:33

IMG_3132_zps721809cc photo IMG_3132_zps721809cc-1_zps3c1b17ac.jpg

God is so Good, So Gracious. I’m honored and thankful!

During the construction of these wallets I have thought to myself…What will I write? So many things have happen.

 photo IMG_3118_zps632ff75f.jpg

When I first thought of the idea of having these wallets as my next collection it was because I wanted to re-encourage not only Teachers but Students of the task yet ahead. To Finish what they have started in their school work.

 photo IMG_3075_zpscc88ce3d.jpg

Then it came to me like a flash flood. Being tossed about to and fro. And last Sunday really put things to perspective, through this verse:

Others went out on the sea in ships;

they were merchants on the mighty waters.

24They saw the works of the Lord,

his wonderful deeds in the deep.

25For he spoke and stirred up a tempest

that lifted high the waves.

26They mounted up to the heavens and went down to the depths;

in their peril their courage melted away.

27They reeled and staggered like drunken men;

they were at their wits’ end.

28Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble,

and he brought them out of their distress.

29He stilled the storm to a whisper;

the waves of the sea were hushed.

30They were glad when it grew calm,

and he guided them to their desired haven.

31Let them give thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love

and his wonderful deeds for men. Psalm 107:23-31

The Lessons you learn and what GOD puts you through. You have to be all in. You just have to. You can’t be Luke warm, Because you will be spewed out;

o, because you are lukewarm–neither hot nor cold–I am about to spit you out of my mouth. Revelation 3:16

 photo IMG_3057_zps5b49c0e8.jpg

These last couple of weeks I have GONE THROUGH IT! PHEW! I mean Seriously! But I’m at a calm now! WOW.

HALLELUJAH! THANK YOU JESUS!

You know GOD didn’t promise us a life without adversity. I’ve learned that when you are OUT at Sea…With the waves crashing and the thought of “OH, I AM not GOING To MAKE it!” Hits you! GOD shows you WHO HE IS!

AMEN!

 photo IMG_3131_zpse62b9fbc.jpg

Let me clarify… If it wasn’t for the LOVE of CHRIST, I would not be here. IF it wasn’t for JESUS, FOR WHO HE IS, I’d given up a while back.

We must humble ourselves…In distress, call out to the LORD, humble yourself. Pride prevents us from seeing who JESUS is.

What GOD Calls you to do, HE surely Supplies!

But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19

I remember having a lunch date with a fellow Sister in Christ who is also a Business Owner, She had said,

“The Trails mean that you’re going to the next level, I just tell GOD, BRING ON THE NEXT ONE!”

All I could think of …wow, what faith. Does she know what she’s asking? I’m not in any hurry. lol…

Aren’t we all like that? Just let me chill here at the shore…one day I’ll sail the seas.

Sometimes GOD just Pulls a Jonah.. (Read: Jonah 1:17 – 2:10)

 photo IMG_3131_zpse62b9fbc.jpg

GOD shakes us, racks us so we wouldn’t be comfortable with our circumstances, So that we may be comfortable with HIM, with GOD, no matter what the circumstances.

We shouldn’t be Happy with what we GOT, we should be ecstatic about who HE IS!

Mighty, ALL POWERFUL, Creator of the UNIVERSE! Who Humbled Himself that we may live with HIM. That we may know GOD. How beautiful!

So if you’re going through a STORM, just know, You’re Getting Schooled by GOD and if you pass, You’ll go to the next Level.

I pray that you may pass with FLYING COLORS in the Name Of JESUS!

But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. Isaiah 40:31

 photo IMG_3208_zpsa162a992.jpg

So let these wallets be a Reminder…Of the AWESOME Teachings of GOD, of JESUS CHRIST!

Hosanna in the Highest!!!
