I have this thing about getting anxious when I want something to be a certain way and its not or have a project in mind and want it to look a certain way and it doesn't.  I tend to rush so much toward a goal that I ignore everything else that needs or wants my attention.   Like my Etsy store.  I want it to be a medium success, that is what I am working toward.  But meanwhile while its not, I tend to get upset or even depressed at some point.  Why?  Or like loosing the weight that my cardiologist have told me ever so sternly that I need to lose, can I do this in a day?  No.  I find that today I am telling myself, "You are working toward a goal".  A goal to finish painting all your doors, to succeed with your Etsy shop,  TO SUCCEED WITH YOUR BLOG, to succeed with the weight loss and to succeed with buying that house you so desperately want.  It truly is all in God's timing and you are working toward that goal.  

Like my most favorite scripture of all times and one that is even listed on my blog.  

For everything there is a season, 
and a time for every purpose under heaven:
a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant,
 and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
a time to kill, and a time to heal; 
a time to break down, and a time to build up;
 a time to weep, and a time to laugh;
 a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; 
a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
 a time to seek, and a time to lose; 
a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
 a time to rend, and a time to sew; 
a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
a time to love, and a time to hate; 
a time for war, and a time for peace.
What profit hath he that worketh in that wherein he laboreth?
 He hath made everything beautiful in its time: 
also he hath set eternity in their heart, 
yet so that man cannot find out the work that God hath done
from the beginning even to the end.

So some exciting things are happening in our family and my Etsy store.  I am getting ready to give it a bit of a face lift AND we are closer to a new better job for the husband that doesn't have him traveling for work an hour each way and we are moving forward with trying to purchase a home by summer 2013.  And of course lets not forgot the upcoming fabulous 2nd birthday for the boy!  This year is train themed and i have picked several different things from Pinterest pinners and I think it is going to be adorable.  Stay tuned for those pics later this month.  

And like with most things everything is with God’s blessings and only in his timing.  

I will leave you with this picture taken this weekend with one of the boy's uncles and his huge orange jeep that the boy loves and loves to drive.  yeah he drove it up the street, don't judge me or call the cops.
