With a vision to one day stay at home with my family while still contributing financially, I started a small Etsy shop from a storage closet in college. Overtime, that small shop grew and evolved into a community for young women looking for practical tools to navigate life with grit, grace, and faith. So around here, you'll find resources and tools to help you steward your home, health, and work well.
My mom gave me a pot of sunflowers two weeks ago. She knew my history with keeping flowers alive and told me this is a simple starter plant, easy to keep alive. Just needs full sunlight and water now and then.
Sunlight. Water. Got it.
I stuck it in a patch of light on my back porch, up for the challenge that’s *supposed* to be easy.
Well I’ve since forgotten about said flowers and today I found them wilted, dried up and dead.
But it did rain since I set them out there, so I think God was trying to help me out. But alas, they are still goners.
So, this is either a test of my perseverance. Or a clear sign that I was not born to have flowers.
I believe it’s the latter.
And I think we all do that sometimes—see the things we struggle at and assume we’re just not made for them. But maybe they’re really a test of our perseverance.
Maybe the very things that need to bloom in your life aren’t the things that come easy but the things God wants to grow Y O U through, too.
Give those raw and delicate parts of your heart lots of Light and water em with the Word – with the well that never runs dry.
And the Lord will guide you continually and satisfy your desire in scorched places and make your bones strong; and you shall be like a watered garden, like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail.
