Yesterday I hade my first vendor both locally. It was a small business Saturday Christmas event. It was a little nerve racking to get ready for but by God I did it. I even made several sales and got a ton of compliment on how nice my items were. I was most excited that someone bought a copy of my book. The jewelry displays are ones I made myself.
Finally Got Official.
I finally was able to get my local business licenses for selling my items. I created an Etsy shop since it's established to increase my sell market. I have plans on making a shop on this website but that's going to take longer to get done. I still need to finish updating some of the pages on this site as it is.
We have been remodeling our bathroom for months now it's taking way longer than we would have hoped with so that has taken up a bit of my time.
It's been a while again
It's a couple of months short of a year since I wrote on this. Quite a bit has happened.
We sold our house that was near our families and bought one where we have been living for a few years now. It's not far from where we were renting. It's a 60s home so we have had to do a bit of work on it. The most major thing was all the cast iron drain pipes had to be replaced. We had that done professionally but the main bathroom of the house basically had to be gutted for it. We decided to save some money and redo it ourselves. It's taking us much longer than we would have liked since while Curtis has been doing a lot better he still have issues. He can only do things in short periods of time and then needs much longer to recover. I have helped with what I can but can't do as much either.
My book Uniquely Made: My Journey Through Christianity is officially published. I am in the process of having an audiobook created for it since people prefer that nowadays. Check out my site writersa.info for more info on it.
Minus the Recipe pages I have the new layout of this site done. I will add more photos to sections as time goes on. In the future I may add a store versus only selling on Poshmark. First I want to get more items created and get a local business license (something I couldn't do till we got our own home).
It's Been a Bit
It's a month short of two years since I wrote on here. It's been a crazy few of years. Lots of changes with life.
My hubby started having seizures and we spent a good year and half trying to get a doctor that would help us. He is now to the point that he can function again and live a better life.
I personally have been dealing with some health issues also.
We left the church that we helped plant.
I wrote a book that is in the process of being published. I have a separate website writersa.info that is for my writing.
The original business I planned on starting didn't work out but I started selling on Poshmark making an Eccentric Hearts Closet I am selling handcrafted items along with reselling used clothing and home goods.
Twelve days ago, I lost my mom in a tragic car accident. Nine years and six days after I lost my dad in one. I am still trying to process it. I keep thinking I will hear from her still. I am constantly wanting to message her something and remember that she isn't there to get it. I am not sure where I would be right now if it wasn't for my faith and God's comfort. Each day I make the choice to do the best with what I have and live a life that I would hope my parents would be proud of.
I am updating the layout of this site and going to start updating the pages as well.
October 27th, 2019
Here is the reveal of the new logo. The hearts are hand drawn by me. I wanted a homemade feel.
I started updating the site design but I am not close to done yet. But hopefully I will be able to work on it regularly to get it finished in a timely manner. I am making the new design go live and make the changes as I can.
I know It's been almost a year again. I have had a lot going on with family and church that I just haven't been able to do all that I have wanted to with this site. Things are about to change though. I am working on completely updating the site again and officially starting my own business. There is a lot to do. The first step completed is I filed to use Eccentric Hearts as my fictitious name for my business. I am trying to narrow down exactly what the business is going to be about. I am working on the paperwork things are just more complicated than I had hoped. I am trusting God to help get what I need done to do so since I feel like this is where He has been leading me with the different words I have gotten from Him this year.
Stay tuned I hope to start sharing some of what's been going on and what's ahead.
Been almost a year
So yet again I have negated my website and blog. I still haven't finished the new layout. A lot has changed this year and hopefully I will make a post telling some of it soon. I would like to start working on it at least once a week. I did create a second blog on this site today for my observations while I am reading thru my new ESV Study Bible.
It's not fully done but I went ahead and made my new layout go live for the website. Pages not done are the chocolates under the culinary tab and the entire photography section. Hopefully will get them done in the next week or two. Let me know what you think and if you come across any issues. Thanks.
Healing Thru Faith
Reading in Luke 8 this morning and at the part where the woman with 12 years of constant bleeding, every time I read or hear that part I always can slightly sympathize with her. A couple years into trying to have a child I had a year that I bleed for. I had the opposite of a period where I would get a 2-3 day of not bleeding every few months. It made life harder, but nothing compared to what she had to go through because of the way they treated those circumstances back then. She was basically excluded from doing a lot of things including community worship since she was considered “unclean”. It had to wear her down both physically and emotionally. Going through it for just a year worked really hard on me.
Some of you I am sure can relate also maybe not about bleeding but about some other thing in your life that has just worn you down physically or spiritually or both. You have been waiting for your break thru but it just never seems like it is going to come. Both this story and and the one of Jairus that had the sick daughter that died, healing occurred in response to faith. For the woman she knew without a doubt that if she touched the hem of Jesus’s robe she would be healed and that’s exactly what happen. For Jairus Jesus told him “Don’t be afraid, Just have faith, and she will be healed”(Luke 8:50). So Jairus kept leading Jesus to his house. He could have just given up after being told she was dead but he didn’t and because of that his daughter was healed. For me I believed God could heal me but this may sound odd but I felt I had to make the commitment of giving up soda. Exactly 30 days after I did the bleeding stopped.
Their actions didn’t heal them it was thru their unwavering faith that God healed them. There was no room for doubt. For me when thoughts of doubt came in I would rebuke them and replace them with God’s Word. That by His stripes I am healed, that God wants only the best for me, and so forth. If you need healing today then stand in unwavering faith. Get a list of scriptures to back up what your situation is and the outcome God has promised and when doubt tries to creep in immediately(don’t even let it finish its full thought) rebuke it and replace it with God’s Word.
Proverbs 4:20-22 My child, pay attention to what I say. Listen carefully to my words. 21 Don’t lose sight of them. Let them penetrate deep into your heart, 22 for they bring life to those who find them, and healing to their whole body.
Psalm 147:3 He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.
Luke 8:48 “Daughter,” he said to her, “your faith has made you well. Go in peace.”
Isaiah 53:4-5 Yet it was our weaknesses he carried; it was our sorrows that weighed him down. And we thought his troubles were a punishment from God, a punishment for his own sins! 5 But he was pierced for our rebellion, crushed for our sins. He was beaten so we could be whole. He was whipped so we could be healed.
Matthew 11: 28-29 Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls.
James 4:7 So humble yourselves before God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
James 5:13-16 13 Are any of you suffering hardships? You should pray. Are any of you happy? You should sing praises. 14 Are any of you sick? You should call for the elders of the church to come and pray over you, anointing you with oil in the name of the Lord. 15 Such a prayer offered in faith will heal the sick, and the Lord will make you well. And if you have committed any sins, you will be forgiven. 16 Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results.
We took a huge leap of faith last week and have moved so we could help plant a new life giving church in the Cape Canaveral/ Cocoa Beach area. From working on on doing this big life change I haven't been able to finish working on new layout or updating this site. Our new place has way faster internet so I am hoping over the next couple weeks I will be able to finish updating the website and then keep it update easier.
Welcome to my site and my life. I post updates on things I am doing or adding to my site, about what's going on in my life good or bad, & things that I believe the Holy Spirit prompts me to. I live to glorify God in all I do, to share His everlasting, unfailing love, and the nearly unbelievable good news of Jesus Christ.
