For Such a Time As This

Esther 4:14 "...And who knows but that you have come to royal position for such a time as this?"

So I am really trying to hone in on why I do this~ my mission. And I'm having a hard time, but the bottom line is that I truly believe at this time in my life God has called me to be here, in this 'space', doing what I love because he has given it to me because I am 'Any Mom'.

I started this blog with the subtitle "a journal of our days, the ones we love, and the things we make", and I still think that is what this blog is. My hope is that as it grows and changes it will become a place where any mom can find inspiration, whether that is drawn from a certain scripture which will grow her closer to the Creator, or something creative that will bring into light God-given interests and abilities. 2 sweet things blog (and shop, for that matter!) is the place where I connect God, art & inspiration, and I hope that 'Any Mom' will find that here too.

That kind of sums up where I'm at today. I definitely think in the next days & weeks I will be able to clarify a bit more, but it's a start, right!?

Oh, and I guess I'll throw in a little Friday Love while I'm here. Though, truthfully I didn't even know it was Friday until the guy at the bank said something! Today I'm loving:

~ That our family seems to be in the clear from the nasty rotavirus. Neither little one is eating quite like themselves just yet, but they are getting past it, and for that I am deeply thankful!

~That my 'studio' is coming together. I can't wait to get everything into place and give y'all a little tour. It is so nice to be able to spread out and not have to shuffle everything off the dining room table each day!

~That we have an awesome new church family. I mentioned that we arrived to a team of people who helped get everything ready and unload the truck, but it has extended to so much more than that, and we have just been blown away by their kindness.

That's really just the tip of the iceburg, but I have a few custom orders that I need to get started on for Valentine's Day. Happy Weekend~ I'll see you soon!


  1. I want to read your blog just because you quoted from Esther. :) Love that book. And hi from the 52 weeks group. :)

  2. I think your 'bottom line' is true for many of us. We are where we are supposed to be, when we are supposed to be there, doing what we are supposed to do. And because God has us here, He will use us to reach people in ways that we may never know this side of heaven. Your post already has helped me see clearer my purpose!

  3. Thanks so much for the thoughts! I am already beginning to see how God is using this place- love it!

  4. Always stuff to be thankful for! :)
