A New Year!
Well I haven't been on here in quite a while. October, November, and December were gone before I knew it. I guess it went so fast because I was enjoying each day. I have spent years stressed out and worried about so many things. I can finally say that I have given God complete control of my life and I couldn't be happier! I have learned to relax and enjoy all the many blessings He gives us - especially my family. I have learned to slow down and spend more time with Him and focus on His word. I just received my new book yesterday and it is amazing. It is Breaking Free Day by Day by Beth Moore. I caught up through today but I didn't want to put it down. I am also starting a study about David with Beth Moore - Annointed, Transformed, Redeemed. I can feel God working in my life even as my family makes some tough decisions. I know I shouldn't take on anything else but I just signed up as a new Thirty-One Gifts consultant. I had been thinking about it for months but it finally seemed like the right time. I signed up under one of my friends. She told me how God has blessed her and her family through this company. I am hoping it will help with the financial burden we are facing right now but it is much more than that. I am so excited about this new adventure and can't wait to see what God has in store for me. I feel that He led me to this. Their mission sticks with me - Proverbs 31 - Celebrate, Encourage, and Reward. We as women wear so many hats and it is wonderful to be able to celebrate and encourage each other. Will there be monetary rewards? I don't know. I believe there will be other rewards or blessings that are so much more important than money. 2010 was a rough year for my family but I can see that we are stronger and happier. I am so excited about this new year and what it will bring for us.
I have created a new blog - http://melissas31.blogspot.com/
