I was a little sad about the fact that you were turning one and I wasn't able to celebrate. Well, that all changed when I checked my email today. I celebrated with tears of joy when I read two separate emails from two women half a world away who were inspired by the ideas they found here and were ready to share them with others specifically because they want their gifts to be used by God. Rather than celebrate your birthday publicly as I had planned, the Lord had other ideas. He wanted me to take the time to reflect on the past year and the opportunities that He has given me through you, little Blog! I am not talented on my own and you would not be here if it weren't for the inspiration that He has given me.
So rather than a big blowout Birthday Bash, I had my own quiet celebration. I was reminded of God's faithfulness this year to provide me with ideas, the resources to act on my ideas, and introducing me to some amazing people around the world who like to be crafty too!
Lord, I praise you for what you have done and are doing with this blog! Thanks for letting me have a front row seat to what you're up to!!
Oh and speaking of being up to things... I'm working on an inspiration board using this Goodwill find. More on that later!
