My Wig is Blown

Yesterday the Lord officially "blew my wig back". The "blowing back of the wig" is a statement that I have adopted from a wonderful woman of God that I call a best friend and sister. It means that you were surprised beyond essence, your socks were knocked off. And yesterday, all of that happened. I am extremely thankful. I am thankful beyond what words can express.

I had a meeting for my job as a program manager and that went well. I spotted a friend that I had not seen since starting my new position. I went to a beading supply store that I didn't have any intention of going into before the moment I stepped in the door.

The result from these seemingly insignificant occurrences:
-I have a better understanding of how to move forward with the program that I am helping to run.
-The friend that I ran into is in the position to introduce me to a gallery owner this evening at "First Fridays" (a night of gallery openings in the city that happens every 1st Friday of each month).
-The offer has been extended for me to teach a jewelry beading class...and yes, I have accepted!
So you all...these are indeed baby steps. However, I understand the monstrous presence that a baby step holds. Baby steps grow to be adult characteristics and habits. What a wonderful thing to know that these baby steps and those to come are all designed to make me the woman that God desires for me to be now and in the future.

Pearls of Wisdom:
When upon life's billows you are tepest tossed,
When you are discouraged, thinking all is lost,
Count your many blessings, name them one by one,
And it will surprise you what the Lord hath done
Are you ever burdened with a load of care?
Does the cross seem heavy you are called to bear?
Count your many blessings, ev'ry doubt will fly,
And you will be singing as the days go by.
When you look at others with their lands and gold,
Think that Christ has promised you His wealth untold;
Count your many blessings, money cannot buy
Your reward in heaven, nor your home on high
So, amid the conflict, whether great or small,
Do not be discouraged, God is over all;
Count your many blessings, angels will attend,
Help and comfort give you to your journey's end
Count your many blessings, name them one by one,
Count your many blessings, see what God hath done
-Johnson Oatman Jr.
Be Blessed!
