New Lady On The Block

Good Morning, my sweets!
Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for so many
wonderful, thoughtful, and loving birthday wishes!
You brought tears to my eyes, dear friends.
Once again, I stand amazed at this beautiful world of blogging
and the precious people and friends I have had the honor of meeting.
Each one of you hold a special place in my heart - you are a blessing and joy.
You have my gratitude and love.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I would like to introduce you to a new blogger who is very special to me.
In fact, many of you may already know her through my blog
and the tea cup exchanges.
Her name is Debbie and she is my lovely Mother :)


My Mom has watched The Enchanting Rose grow over the last two years
and she has met many of you incredibly ladies through it.
Before I started this blog she didn't even know what a blog was :)
So she watched and enjoyed what took place
and the Lord finally laid it upon her heart to start her own blog.


It's a place with "Purpose of Heart" (Acts 11:23).
Mom's goal is this,

"I would love for this blog, with the guiding and leading of the Holy Spirit,
to be used as a tool for reaching other women,
young ladies, and little girls around the globe for Christ. . . 
to use what God has blessed me with throughout my home
as teaching tools along with Hie Word, the Bible,
to share, encourage, challenge, and inspire other with.
God has so much for us and I believe His desire is for us to share it with others.
Our purpose is to glorify God."

Mom shares her heart's desire through this payer by Betty Scott Stam,

"Lord, I give up all my plans and purposes, all my own desires and hopes,
and except Thy will for my life.
I give myself, my life, my all utterly to Thee to be Thine forever.
Fill me and seal me with Thy Holy Spirit.
Use me as Thou wilt, send me where Thou wilt,
work out Thy whole will in my life at any cost, now and forever."

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I hope you are able to stop by for a visit
and maybe even follow along as she embarks on this new journey.


Thank you, beautiful friends!
Enjoy the remainder of your week.

Stephanie, I hope you are having a blessed week dear friend!! This has been such a busy week and I did not get a chance to comment on your birthday post, but I saw you published this post today and figured I would just comment here :) Today is your birthday and I pray you are having a lovely one!! What a special date to celebrate as you enjoy your birthday. Happy, blessed day to you my sweet friend! And to your son as well!

About your Mom's blog, it is so exciting to be able to read her blog now because I know she must be the sweetest lady if she raised someone as genuinely kind and loving hearted as you. It's kind of funny- I actually was commenting the other day and saw her comment and clicked her name to see if she had a blog and her blog came up but there were no posts. I figured she was a new blogger and started following her and couldn't wait to see her first post :) I look forward to reading her posts as a regular part of my blog visits!

Blessings! Have a blessed birthday♥♥♥

Huge hugs,
Jazzmin

I have been following your blog for quite some time (almost from the start, I think) and every time I visit, I'm so happy to see so many followers and comments. You have done a wonderful job in growing your blog and online store, I'm so happy for you! It's no wonder you are such an inspiration for your Mom, she must be so proud of you. And, you of her for finally starting her own! And it sounds like she will do very well, what a lovely idea she has!
Debbie :)
