Life is like reading a book!

Once again today I am doing what I love to do. Yep, working at The Cottonwood House. Thanks to each of you for coming and helping me clear out the barn and taking advantage of the great sales. It's starting to feel empty. That's a good thing since I do need to sell everything by the end of the month. But... on the other hand I so want to fill it back up again because that is what I normally do. I am having to restrain myself. big time! I want to keep buying and keep playing house.

Let me Just share with you some of my feelings and emotions and even some of my new dreams. So, pull up a chair and lets pretend we are having coffee together. About the time I think I have my emotions under control, a customer comes in and says "I'm so sad you are going out of business". I reply, me too and I tear up Again!!! sometimes even in front of men customers! Now, that's a no-no. They probably think, get it together lady! What is wrong with you? oh well, sigh!!

I think that life is like reading a book. Some books in life are better reading than others. In fact some are so good that when you read the last chapter, its some what depressing and hard to lay down.. In my own life I feel like I've been reading a book. In fact it's the best book ever but I am almost finished and reading the last page. Done!

You know, I could decide to never pick up another book because this one was so good and there may never be another book as good as the one I just read. OR.... I could say, That was a good book!!! and I can't wait to see what the next book I pick up is all about. I think the Lord is teaching me something here and that is, until we close one chapter in our lives we won't ever experience the next chapter. The next book may be even better then the previous one. I am really getting excited to see the what the future holds. I am starting to get a bit of a preview. Could be pretty exciting actually!

So maybe in your life you have finished a good book as well and not quite ready to lay it down. But maybe God has another good book that is not even off the press yet but ready to be released any day now. Pick it up my friend and enjoy the next journey as I am going to do in my life

Blessings to each of you, Vern

This actually was a bit like sitting with you and having you share your heart. I like how you illustrated the book and the chapters. I know without a shadow of a doubt that you, and the lady who left the first comment on this post, are two VERY talented, creative women, who are only going to be starting new exciting books in your lives. God doesn't bless His children with so much talent and then not have them use it. I am looking forward to how He continues to work in each one of your lives. I know it will be special!!!
