i just wonder....

I am a quiet driver.  I don't usually talk in the car.  I don't mean to be rude or anything, my mind just goes crazy and I end up in deep thought.  I think about all kinds of things, my kids, dreams, Jesus, grocery store needs, shoes, movies, God, politics, laundry....whatever and where ever my mind takes me.  It's relaxing and I love it.  Often I think, "I should blog about my thoughts, I have some really profound thoughts".  But then a sneaky negative one comes climbing in my mind... "does anyone care what I think?"  It's a good question, especially if I am wanting to write more but not one you should ask if you are looking for value in society.   It's bad if I am going to weigh my importance on how many people read this blog or share it.  They are my thoughts and should be valued by me no matter what.   I don't want to change how I feel about myself based solely on someone thinking I am pithy, or funny, or deep, or whatever.  Blogs are a great resource to get what is in your head and heart onto paper (or pages).  They are entertaining, informative, encouraging, and educational but I have heard of people who change, not in a maturing, I'm expanding my mind way, but in a "I am super important because I have random thoughts" or "I don't matter to the world because no one comments on my blog page" way.  It's too much.  I don't want to change to please readers.  So here I am, blogging my thoughts, knowing that probably 5-10 people will ever read them and probably will think I've lost my mind.  It's fine.  I like my thoughts.

It's Decision Time!

Sooooo I have come to a decision....I love The Thorn and I want to serve the Lord through it for as long as I can.  It is an incredible ministry.  I also I have a family (husband and 3 boys) that I love and need to help support.  I have tried to raise support to allow Thorn's overhead to be as low as possible.  It has been a slow go and we are getting behind.  I recently admitted to the world that I love Mary Kay products and have been buying them for myself. I liked them so much I became a "Personal Use" Consultant.  This means as long as I order a minimum, I get the products at a discount.   I figured, that was all I was interested in.  I told myself "I don't have time to sell Mary Kay.  Just let me buy it and I'll be good".  1 problem.....People started asking me about my great awesome bag I am using......what makeup I use...and on and the point that I was selling it faster than I could buy it.  Then it hit me like a ton of bricks, MARY KAY SELLS ITSELF!   I can sell Mary Kay and use that as my income AND serve the Thorn without adding any financial burden to the ministry!
All I have to do is be myself, love people, and share how the product has COMPLETELY changed my skin for the better.  I had no idea my face could feel and look this great....and that's just the skin care line.  The makeup is awesome too and for the first time I don't cringe when i look in the mirror in the morning.
So that's it.  I am selling Mary Kay on the side so I can continue to serve the Thorn and it's ministry while helping women look and feel their very best.  I am super excited.  Just wanted to share it with you.
I would love to tell ya more about the Thorn and Mary Kay.  Feel free to contact me via email or have fun on my personal MaryKay website.

Blessings to you,
