From Status to Store in Less than an Hour*

It started with a mulling.  It morphed to a status.  Once it was out of the box of the brain, the rest was rolling like gravy off a butter knife!
Not everyone “gets” everyone else’s causes.  That’s ok.  And that’s good-ok because there are so many needs in so many areas of life that if we all cared about the same thing, well, it would not only be boring, but a whole herd of folks would go uncared for.

In our caring, however, others may misunderstand why we care more about our cares than about what they care about.  Although misunderstandings can be hurtful, there is something worse:  Stop-ful.


When we let misunderstanding (or not pausing to understand) stop us from doing what we care about, then I think we begin to care more about their opinions of us than what our own hearts are thumpin’ over.



There **is** a sieve I think we should sift our cares through: Philippians, chapter 4. Just to be sure we are caring about what God cares about!


All that misunderstanding pondering led to a thoughtful summation the other day, which I posted on a particular social media that allows more than 140 characters.  When a friend (that’s a hint as to which site I was on) suggested the thought be engraved on something (my friend’s words: anything, everything!) I jumped in on the fun and made her a t-shirt on
That was the plan: Just have some fun!  But then she asked if she could buy it, and I didn’t know the answer.

Little inside info:  I like to know the answer.

So … I found out.  And within an hour, SuzBGoods Zazzle Store opened.   Soon after, a coffee mug appeared (which only took moments – I know, boring – for now – but it’s a new field of adventure to explore!).

And now my daughter – an artist at heart – is involved in the design process!  Wait ’til you see what she’s got cookin’! 

Do you have a designer-at-heart in your home?  It’s free to design on Zazzle!  Let me know if you open a store!


Homeschooling Tip:  If an Out of the Box opportunity leaps before you [and you have the time to do it] jump in and have some fun!
For a Life Tip:  Read the T-shirt!  (or the coffee mug!)

I like planning and I like winging it.


What have you done lately that is Out of the Box?


*One hour plus a little wait time for Zazzle to do it’s behind-the-scenes set-up stuff.
