SWEETER THAN HONEY SHOP
My Etsy shop has been open for nearly 3 months now and I could not be happier with the direction it’s headed.
I started making prints after taking my first watercolor workshop with my best friend on my birthday in May. I find water coloring so relaxing, so now, it has been one of my favorite past times.
When I make a print, I am reminded of the the little things the Lord provides us with which includes, hands and tools to write pretty letters to inspire and create. When I create these prints, if it’s not a gift for a friend or a silly quote I think of– it’s during the times I spend with the Lord, and during a time I feel I needed to hear these verses. When verses come to my mind, I immediately write them down.
In the midst of uncertainty, and loss of dependence on the Lord, that’s when I feel I need to cling to Him the most. Everyday, I find myself being caught in the craziness called life and forget to stop and rest and be present in His presence. Each print with verses or lyrics I have made and continually make represents a moment of time I needed to trust in Him more, find rest in Him more, or needed the Lord to intercede in certain areas of my life.
These prints are not just for my Etsy Shop to share with the world, but they are also reminders for myself. Reminders of how good my God is, reminders that I am a daughter of the King, reminders that I’m not alone, reminders that I am found in Him. I hope to continue making prints that remind us to stop and remember our first love.
And he who was seated on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” Also he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.” -Revelation 21:5
What are some things you need to daily remind yourself of?
