dreaming out of the box on a Monday

hello hello..boy have I missed YOU!  Seriously – I have.

My world has turned upside down, I am meeting myself coming and going, I am intentionally stretching out of my comfort zone more often, doing more things that make me gasp! – my house is in shambles and so are my clothes, hair and feet ( sorry if that is to personal:/)..brake lines that have holes and washing machines that don’t spin anymore are written into God adventures aren’t they?  They sit right smack dab in the middle of the road.  You know the one don’t you? When you finally get on the road that just might lead you to living your dream?

and those bumps cause me to question, doubt, fear…I know I’m not the only one that knows these fellas intimately right?

and frankly – they whisper at me?  You gonna quit this time Tiff?  Are ya?  You know this is too hard.  Your not as good as they are.  You will never be able to do it all.  To many risks this dream chasing.  It has been 12 years and your getting old..maybe it is to late?  Oh – if your like me these fellas like to whisper this stuff at just the right times..when your on the verge of breaking down.  Not sure if you should ask for help..you know this place right?

and as I look around inside my life and inside my heart..I nod and I bow before the One who loves me wholly and completely knowing every nook and cranny of my life..He does.  I hold all of this with arms open wide and I have no idea what to do with it or where we are going but I am learning this…

that choosing to TRUST Him within everyday – every circumstance is where He is teaching me He to lean on Him.  Not ANYTHING or ANYONE else.  That He wants to walk with me THROUGH life not completely resuce me out of it.  Maybe this is His way of walking me out of the pit of despair.  Totally NOT what I thought it would look like at all!  I used to think I wanted to be a Bible teacher like Kay Arther!  Ha!

HEY fellas — scram!  You see behind me don’t you?  Yeah, thats right!  That’s an angel army and you ain’t welcome here.  Now go…….because I’ve got a dream I’m chasin’.  I’ve got warrior women by my side who don’t put up with bullies!

I’ve finally purchased the ticket!  Choosing to ride instead of just wishing I could

YOU have to buy the ticket!!  I get it now

What dream have you been wishing you could begin pursuing but believed that dreams only come true for others?

because dear one…YOU have a dream that God wants to write into your life but He needs YOU to participate.

Think about it won’t you?

SO much more to share but for now … DREAM out of the box.  God isn’t in boxes.

We open Friday..with knees a knocking and my heart quivering!

Cha Cha - With fear and trembling I am trying to learn to live daily outside of that box in the grey – confusing areas where God is all there is to guide and you have to cling hard to find your way. I love that He has blessed me with so many around who are willing to take the same path.

heather medley - How inspiring! I love your stuff in the pics Jes took and then to read your blog! I'm sure Jes lobes u:):)… You sound like you have been where I have and AM many times….just wanna get there but give up! Don't do it this time. I see the talent. I must admit I'm jealous! I wanna go so bad. I tried again a little over a year ago. built an entire website, etsy store, remodeled a couple kitchens, then realized I must be on crack! At the time my twins were two!!! What was I thinking??? Then when my friend Jes of Tin Roof Studio announced this I was REALLY jealous but feel my job is to be mom right now and you can't do either of these things half way! We are now 3. Hopefully, the world will still love what we all do by kindergarten, ha!

Wishing you the berry best of luck!
