What Are You Waiting For, What Is Holding You Back?: From My Journal

God I want to hear from you clearly on the next steps for my life, especially my career.  You know my hearts desire is to do Sweet Tooth Desserts full time, to be my own boss.  I have worked 20 years at my current job, and I am no further along now than when I started.  Some of it was due to me not putting enough effort into learning more to get a better paying position I do admit. Even with that, looking back it was about keeping a job not building a career.  Not working towards something I felt passionate about.  I am grateful for all the years you blessed me to even have a job.  I am grateful that after 19 years, I was able to leave a position I felt trapped in for something new, another position at the same job.  Yet, I still don't feel fulfilled.  My hope was that this new position would be the path to a new career, but in my heart it was only an escape from another dead end position.  When I am honest with myself, project management is not my hearts desire, Sweet Tooth Desserts is. 

Now I feel like I am at a cross roads, all these years I stayed at a job because I had bills to pay, I was being responsible.  I thought this is God's tool to help provide for me.  Plus, what else would I do?  I had no college degree, no skills to really get a job that I wanted, so I was stuck.  Even now, I still feel stuck, leaving where I am even to get another job just to get away from that situation still wouldn't be fulfilling, it would be another job and doing what?  I still haven't amassed any skills to get a job doing anything I love.  Yes, I can pray for favor and you can open the door for me to get a better job, in a better environment. I can even pray you change things at my current job, but it would still only be a job.

God, I am at this cross road and I don't know what to do. 40 years old and nothing to show for all the years I have worked.  I need to hear from you......if I can believe you to keep me employed for 20 years, with little skill/knowledge to actually do the work my positions required, I can have much more faith to believe you can bless my business to grow and prosper. 

I can't let fear keep me from taking that leap to my true destiny and I won't.   Leaving my current job is my next step, God I just need to know when and JUST DO IT!!

Unseasonably Warm: Outfit Of The Day

I just want to say how HAPPY I am with these really warm temperatures we are having here.  It's December and it has been in the upper 60's to mid 70's (some days upper 70's) and unless you live in a state/country where this is normal here in Georgia it's so unexpected!  We have been having severe thunderstorms (those I can live without) in December, the week of Christmas!!! I know there have been major flooding in some places and devastating tornadoes across some states, my thoughts and prayers are with all affected. I just hope this weather now doesn't mean when Spring comes the weather is going to HORRIBLE!!!   

 Enough of weather talk, since it has been so nice (even with the rainy/cloudy days) I have been able to dress cute enough to snap some pictures without all the layers, lol!!   So here a few quick pictures of what I wore to church this past Sunday!!!

Just In Time For Fall: Slow Cooker Chicken Noodle Soup

When cooler weather is here most of us reach for warmer, more hearty foods to warm and fill us up, what does that better than a yummy soup!!  Not just any soup but a cold weather staple Chicken Noodle Soup.   We all know chicken noodle soup is great to have to keep you warm but also when you are fighting a cold or the flu.

Well I was off one Tuesday a couple of weeks ago and since I  had all the ingredients I decided to make Chicken Noodle Soup.  Plus, it was a little cooler that day and I thought having this for dinner would be perfect. I didn't follow a recipe I just made it up as I went along.  I did manage to note some steps for you to follow if you would like to try it.

3 Large boneless/skinless chicken breast (you can use what part of the chicken you like)
1 Medium size onion
Carrots (I had 2 large and 1 small)
Chicken Broth (I used Emeril's Organic)
Garden Rotini Pasta (you can of course use egg noodles)
Parsley Flakes
Garlic Powder
Onion Powder
Ground Thyme
Nature's Seasoning
Chicken Bouillon Powder

I seasoned 3 large boneless/skinless chicken breast with parsley, onion powder, garlic powder, nature's seasoning and a little bit of thyme.  Then I put them in an air tight container and let marinate in the refrigerator over night.
