The Lord is Good

So, I am two days into my apprenticeship at Salon Pure Aveda and I am LOVING IT!!! Why have I not realized that hair is my calling until now?! Maybe I just needed to go to school, work a job (or ten) that I didn't love, and truly seek the Lord about what I need to be doing to finally land here- a creative, fun, interactive, beautiful world where I get to help people relax and feel comfortable, and eventually, I get to make them look and feel their best! Looking back, I am sure that the Lord has had all of this in His plan up to now, I just maybe wasn't praying to see? He has drawn me into Himself in ways like never before through this process of leaving something that was a little more secure, to pursue the unknown...
Finances are scary if I am totally honest, BUT I know who my Daddy is and He will never let me go without! I'm selling Mary Kay on the side now, too, and launching my business with them next Wednesday night! Please join in supporting me through this season, both financially & prayerfully!
I can't wait to see how the Lord shows up & shows out in this time of my life because I know that He will do it and it will be beyond my own understanding!

Who would like to rub my feet?!

Ok, so that title should've at least caught some attention, right?! For those of you who may not know, I just got a new job! I am going to be a cosmetology apprentice at a salon! Eeeeek! I am SO excited, but let me just tell you, my feet are not having it today! Ouch! So, if there's anyone out there who would like to rub them, I'd be much obliged! HA!

ANYWHO, with the new job comes some new obstacles to work through, like, how in the world will I afford my rent? Since being an apprentice means that they are showing me the ropes, part of my compensation is my education, which rocks because I am not spending several thousand dollars to go to school, however, it is a pay cut (no pun intended) and I'll have to adjust my budget for sure.

God is good & He always has been & He has always shown me time and time again how He perfectly provides. While I am a little freaked out & not sure how this is going to work, I know & trust that He has it all in His hands and under His control...

All that being said, PLEASE send your friends to my Etsy shop & help a sister out in this new adventure!!! Also, if you'd like to pray for God to send me a Godly, rich husband quick, that would work too...
