I buy them, I sell them, I hold them close. They seem to give me comfort and a sense of continuity.
But, I also know that there are some old things in life that don't serve us well. They break like an old tree in a storm.
That's when we know that we have to make changes, even though we may want to cling to something or someone.
I believe that everything and everyone come into our lives for a reason. They are sent to teach us a lesson. To help us grow. It is up to us to know when to move on to reach for new goals. It is up to us to take a chance on new endeavors.
Something new can be good, but it can also be scary. When I woke up last Thursday my first thought was how am I going to stock my booth. WHAT???? I don't have an antique booth. I haven't been able to find a space.
Two hours later my phone rang. It was the Peddlers Mall wanting to know if I was still interested in a space. REALLY?? I put my name in 18 months ago. I never expected to hear from them again. Not only did they have a space, but it is in building one on the first floor. Prime real estate, so to speak!!!
Yes, of course I do. So I signed the lease, and gave them my money. Then my thoughts of the morning came back. How am I going to stock it? What am I going to use for shelves. I'm a little bit broke at the moment, but I had prayed for a new stream of income and I got this. So I will use what I have as a start and hope the rest will come.
The prayer request. My brother-in-law Don, who has been in the nursing home since August and is in very fragile health is being admitted to the hospital today for a leg amputation on Wednesday. I know I have some wonderful prayer warrior followers, so I am asking for prayers for him.
I will be by my sister's side through this, but will post as much as possible, and will let you know how it goes.
