Book Club: chapter 8 {minus the book}

Last week my husband and I went on a date. We didn't do much, but we still had a blast and we had a chance to talk without any interruption. I mentioned to him how I wasn't sure what talents I wanted to pursue. Of course, being a wife and mother is my top priority, but I really do enjoy to sew and decorate homes. My husband, a man full of wisdom, simply started to recite Ecclesiastes 11. The highlights for me were verse 5 & 6...

As you not know the path of the wind, or how the body is formed in a mother's womb, so you cannot understand the work of God, the Maker of all things. Sow your seed in the morning, and at evening let your hands not be idle, for you do not know which will succeed, whether this or that, or whether both will do equally well. - Ecclesiastes 11:5-6

So my husband encouraged me to try both and see where it all takes me. Not to worry so much about failing or succeeding. To just take a leap of faith and simply do something, because we do not know the plans of God and if I do nothing then I may never know. God cannot bless something until I give Him something to bless. So saying all this I believe I am going to start sewing just a few dresses and put them on Etsy and see what happens. Oh and yes, I already have my first paid decorating gig starting soon, can't wait!

{the photo above is from one of my favorite shoots my hubby just did. A year ago a few people encouraged him to start doing photography. So we, he, took a leap of faith and bought the pro equipment and well, let's just say he is doing quite well thus far. We are highly blessed, and even upgraded to a D700 recently so now I get to shoot with the D300, yeah!}
