How true this beautiful chapter and verse is in the Bible. I feel as though my life sometimes comes in chapters as well. One chapter ends and a new one begins. Our lives definitely have seasons.
I've been an antique store owner now for the last three years and had such a wonderful time. It was an honor to take over an established business, enjoy meeting all the great customers, develop new ones and experience the thrill of having my very own store.
About a year and a half ago Cindy came on as my business partner and was, and still is, an absolute blessing to me. She made things HAPPEN! The outside of the shop was painted and freshened. The flower beds were cleaned and straightened up. And best of all, Cindy shared working at the store with me. We alternated weeks and it really was such a great situation.
But now, the time has come for me to move on, to follow my BLISS and let Cindy take over my part of the store. But the best blessing is, I will still sell my wares in The Plum Tree but now I will have more time to create. To sew, paint, collage, search for cool old things and basically do what I truly enjoy doing. I will be taking an entire room at the store as my own and will be keeping it stocked with my finds.
So, sweet friends, wish me well as I move on to this new season and chapter. I'm thankful for the past but hopeful for the future!
Ecclesiastes 3:1 ~ To every thing there is a season . . . and a time to every purpose under the heaven.
