February 2015 God had been speaking to me to add a Fashion Truck to the mix. I could make myself out to be this amazing prayer warrior but who am I kidding? I did not want to get a truck- what do I know about this? Absolutely nothing. I finally agreed to do this, sort of. I started researching because hey- that's what I do. Well, I kept hearing- no you can't bring the truck here and no there are no fashion truck regulations and you cannot bring it uptown. No. No! NO!! So me being me said guess we won't get a truck. Then God gave me Joshua 3. Put your foot in the water THEN I will stop the flow. REALLY?!?! Could we not have You stop it 1st then I can step onto dry land?! Folks- it doesn't work like that, at least not for me. Obedience comes 1st, always.
So imagine what last Saturday was like for me. #therollingshack was invited into Uptown Charlotte. Yep- here is the part where God stopped the flow and ushered us in. The weather was beautiful and the people were so kind and supportive of what we do! We had record sales!!!
What is God asking you to do that is so beyond you? Remember obedience comes 1st. Do your part and He will ALWAYS do His. Have a great week guys!
It's here- Artistic Freedom wooden signs!! We absolutely love them!!! Who is Artistic Freedom? They are part of Caterpillar Ministry and are a refugee group from Huntersville North Carolina. I loved hearing the story of how the artisans are taking ownership of their project. I was told that one homeless woman is part of the group. She has always been quiet and uninterested. After they started this group she has become so excited! She is already looking forward to their next meeting. The women are working together and are so excited to get to be a part of this group. I have learned whether it is in the U.S. or in a developing country, transformation happens when you invest in people and share the love of Christ.
The signs are beautiful and cost $25. Please welcome Artistic Freedom to The Marketplace family!!
