Finding my way.
We have officially been in the new store for 2 weeks. I have never been more exhausted and mentally drained in my life. I find myself questioning whether or not it is all worth it. Is it worth the 18 hour days, sleepless nights and financial risk to my family??? The answer is absolutely, it is worth it. I'm reminded of a scripture " Those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength. They shall mount up with wings like eagles. They shall run and not be weary. They shall walk and not faint." Isaiah 40:31 . My sweet husband said it best the other day, "you get to watch your dream come true" . That is a gift that I am so thankful for. Now to learn how to rest. I have never been one to just relax, I don't remember the last time I watched a movie or even took an afternoon off. That's ok with me because I absolutely love what I do!!! I love being able to openly share my faith. We have gone from just Raiden, Whittney, Chad and myself working the store to 10 employees plus us in less than a year and we are still growing. I am the most unconventional cook, I cook with lots of love and just a passion for food. I love to make people feel at home and happy. The world is so full of heartache and pain that we all need a place that makes us smile. So the saying of they shall run and not grow weary is true. I just have to remind myself that I can not pour from an empty cup. I have to take time and just renew myself. I am flying by the seat of my pants most days. I have always worked for corporations, and being the owner of the business is completely different. Every morning I have a talk with God and ask him for help and to guide me. Lets face it I don't have a clue most days. Then I open up one of my devotionals and the message is always exactly what I needed to get me through the day. I know this is a long one, but the point is that as long as we rest in the knowledge that he is always there guiding our every step we will not grow weary. Resting isn't sitting at home watching a movie, to me its doing what I love and making people happy.
