Thoughts for Tuesdays: Who are you working for?

ohsoverypretty-whatever

Admit it – no matter how much you love your job, there will be moments of frustration, stress, or something that would make you dislike what you’re doing. And that’s normal. It begs the question, why are you doing what you do? Who are you working for? 

Recently our blog received an email from an soon-to-be-missionary who is going to start his/her ministry in a foreign country. At some point in our conversation, he/she had mentioned that he/she was encouraged through our blog and how we have used our arts and crafts into something for God’s glory.

oh-so-very-pretty-philippians4_small630

This is perhaps one of my favourite verses of all time. Last Saturday, we celebrated my mom’s birthday and my youngest sister had shared a few of my mom’s actions that had truly made a difference in our lives, and one of them was memorizing Bible verses.
