I posted yesterday on my other blog that my husband and I were about to start our new “business venture” in faith. It was our first time selling my pastries at my in laws restaurant and to our surprised, it went great! God is awesome! I sold all the bags that I prepared and people asked for more. Now I have a new order to prepare because the restaurant’s employees even want to buy more of them.

Baking these “pastelillos” is a lot of work but is all worth the sacrifice for our dreamed babies. :) So help me God.

New ideas, many thoughts, many plans, new opportunities!

6 Mar

I have always being a dreamer and a planner, BIG time. Somehow I always come up with thoughts of new ideas for things I want to make, or plans I have for my life. My dear husband gets nuts when I start talking about all the things I want to accomplish before we get too old. Sometimes is too much for him! And, of course he is part of those plans! 😉

So we have always talked about business plans and we pray often for the businesses that we would love to have. The thing is that those businesses require a substantial amount of money to start running and we can’t right now. But, this week we came up with a great idea of something that we can start as a small business from home. This is something I made in the past and I’m excited about trying it again. My husband is on board with this and I can’t wait to start! We might be having our first sale at an upcoming Street Bazaar where I will be selling my jewelry very soon. << That opportunity came straight to my email, I didn’t contact anyone for it. Good is so good!!!

More info and pics will come soon! 🙂

Long time, busy life, blessed life!

3 Mar

I haven’t post in a while. I have been busy with my accessories business and with several new things going on in my life. But in the middle of all the things of this life, the Lord has been very good. We just have to sit and analyze all the blessings we have. And, of course be Thankful! Sometimes is better to dance under the rain and look at the rainbows than complaint about the rain! 😉

Hearing God

24 Jan

The young man had lost his job and didn’t know which way to turn. So he went to see the old preacher.

Pacing about the preacher’s study, the young man ranted about his problem. Finally he clenched his fist and shouted, “I’ve begged God to say something to help me. Tell me, Preacher, why doesn’t God answer?”

The old preacher, who sat across the room, spoke something in reply — something so hushed it was indistinguishable. The young man stepped across the room. “What did you say?” he asked.

The preacher repeated himself, but again in a tone as soft as a whisper. So the young man moved closer until he was leaning on the preacher’s chair. “Sorry,” he said. “I still didn’t hear you.”

With their heads bent together, the old preacher spoke once more. “God sometimes whispers,” he said, “so we will move closer to hear Him.”

This time the young man heard and he understood. We all want God’s voice to thunder through the air with the answer to our problem. But God’s is the still, small voice. . .the gentle whisper.

Perhaps there’s a reason. Nothing draws human focus quite like a whisper. God’s whisper means I must stop my ranting and move close to Him, until my head is bent together with His. And then, as I listen, I will find my answer. Better still, I find myself closer to God.

We just need faith!!!

16 Jan

I have been reading a lot these days. Lots of interesting things, specially the spiritual ones and the word of God.  One of my favorite reading topics is the faith.

In my spiritual walk I have learn to be a woman of faith. In the last couple of years my faith has grown so much. For over five years I have prayed for something that has never come to reality. Not that God hasn’t answered, He did, but life changed how things were going. That doesn’t mean I have to stop trusting God and waiting on that dream to come true. I still pray for it. I still have FAITH!!! In this new year I’m keeping my up, my crazy faith, how I call it. 😉

Hebrews 11 talks about all the people in the bible that had great faith. I believe there are different levels of faith. In my opinion not everyone has the same faith. I strongly believe that we have to live in faith and by faith.

I will come back with more thoughts about this and my favorite bible faith characters.Image

Being in agreement

9 Jan

Recently there was thread discussion in an internet ladies Christian board that I’m part of. One of the ladies asked for advice and prayer because her husband wants to start a business with a friend and wants to be roommates with this friend and his family for a year in order to save some money. The lady said that her husband planned this with his friend and even asked for his pastor’s blessing without taking her concerns into consideration. She has many reasons to oppose to this plan. They have a little girl and the other family has a teenager plus a dog. They are in their twenties and the other couple in their thirties, etc.. She is upset about it, and has been crying for days. She is pregnant and does not want to live with another family under the same roof for a year for the sake of a business and saving some money. The discussion has been going on and on because apparently she still needs prayer since her husband is ignoring her opinion and/or not agreeing with her and using the submission card.

Well, I gave her my advice as everyone else did. Of course I told her I would never agree with my dear husband in such decision. Never!!! I told her to pray about it and talk with him again. I posted the following verse on the thread for her to read it to her husband-

Can two walk together, except they be agreed? Amos 3:3

I have been thinking about this lately and today I read that verse again. Not only that, I did some research and some soul searching. What I’m going to write is from my heart.

So often we hear about the wife having to submit to her husband because he is the head of the house and the bible says so. I agree with that to certain extent. I strongly believe that when I made my covenant with my husband and God years ago in an altar; I became one flesh with my husband and I agreed to be his soul mate and partner, not a doormat. Yes partners, that’s how I see it. Two partners that became one. We are on the same team and God is our coach. For me that means that we have to make the family important decisions together and pray together. If one doesn’t agree, that partner will not be happy and the decision should not be make it. Is very clear that in Amos 3:3 the bible is talking about the unity in the body of Christ, the church. How the people will be in unity with God if they don’t agree with each other or with God? Same in marriage, we need UNITY. We need to agree so we can be in peace and walk together. I believe submission is misuse very often and many wife’s live unhappy because they feel they don’t have a voice in their own house. That is sad. But every marriage has to deal with their own situations.

I as a wife know that I have to pray for myself and for my husband often. I believe prayer is a very powerful weapon. I pray with him every morning before he goes to work, and many times at night before he goes to bed. But I pray for him every time he is going to preach at the jail and every time I feel in my spirit that he needs my prayer to cover him. This prayers connect us with God and also help us connect in spirit with each other so we can be in agreement.

*I’m not trying to “look or sound” like we have a perfect marriage or that we agree in everything. We don’t!! This is work in process 🙂
