"So I saw that there is nothing better for a man than to enjoy his work, because that is his lot........" Ecclesiastes 3:22a NIV
The last regular paying job that i had, towards the end, i did not enjoy at all. But i knew that God had brought that job to me when i needed. It also provided me the opportunity to share my faith with the many people that i came in contact with on a daily basis. I was doing HIS work. Right now, with the economy the way it is, jobs are a commodity, & those who do have a job, may not enjoy them, but they pay the bills....hopefully. Me...well, i enjoy the job that i have, but it certainly doesn't pay the bills. That's ok....because i'm doing HIS work. I'm so looking forward to the shows this fall, with my new inspirational inventory. I'm looking forward to sharing God's love with all the people that enter my booth. I'm looking forward to talking with them & praying with them. It's going to be an awesome fall doing HIS work. I'm also looking forward to using facebook & twitter, to meet even more people & share more. The internet is a wonderful thing, even though it can be a bit intimidating to some....including me. =) But i look at it as an opportunity to spread God's word. To unite with fellow Christians. What an awesome opportunity!!! Doing HIS work. And the pay? Well, it's priceless....
Now i know that i gave this Bible verse a different meaning & i normally woud not intentially do this. But it is something to think about. There is nothing more rewarding than doing HIS work.

It's official!!!! I'm so excited about THE GRAND REOPENING OF IFROG CRAFTS!!! And to celebrate....buy ANY item & get the second item of equal or lesser value for 50% OFF!!!
I've added 5 new items that focus on God. The featured item today is Romans 8: 28 sign....
"And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to His purpose."
It's important to remember that in ALL things - good & bad - God is at work. I have learned important lessons from bad experiences. Just because you are a Christian, does not mean that life will be without struggles. But i've grown closer to Him during each struggle. I have rejoiced & thanked Him for the lessons learned, & the growth experiences. He created us for His purpose & my prayer is that He direct me down the path that He wants me to go to glorify Him.
