I really should have a Bakery

a lot of people tell me I should have a bakery, or a resturaunt, and I always kind of shrug it off.  Truth is I'm scared.  Most of my life I have lived in some kind of fear, and a lot of that fear is the fear of disappointing someone, sometimes myself. 

I believe that my daughter can do anything.  People look at me silly sometimes when I tell them she wants to go into fashion.  I'm always like 'she can do ANYTHING and she will be SUCCESSFUL" and I throw in that 'bite me' look for good measure. lol  However when it comes to my dreams, I'm a little more reserved.

I'd love to have a bakery, old school stuff plus some really cool cakes.  Maybe coffee and danish hang out in the mornings or a quick fill up on your way to work.

One thing that I for sure would have is a free cupcake on your birthday, with only one string attached, that you must get your picture taken for the wall of celebration - because you are worth celebrating!!  I know silly right?

Old school pastries and strudels, the kind that when you take a bite, you are instantly transported to sitting at your grandma (or great gma)'s table and you remember the smell of her apron as she hugged you like no one else.  You remember when she'd ask you if you wanted another piece (but don't tell anyone ;] )

Cakes that you can take home and not just say 'it was a quick pick up at the local chain grocery store' and no one really likes it, but they eat it to be polite.  A yummy cake made by someone who knows that you're busy but they know that you're worth celebrating.  A cake that you either don't share the leftovers or you send it out because if it stays in your house, you'll eat it all.

Or a special occasion cake, or a seasonal, strawberry shortcake or blueberry coffeecake, things that are only available sometimes so they always seem like a great treat!

Coffee warm and inviting.  A great way to start your day, a smile and a coffee. And maybe a treat!

I can tell you a million reasons why I would be scared, buying my own insurance, not a steady paycheck, but oh to trust God, to have faith as small as a mustard seed, to say 'move that mountain' and it moves.  Wow! 

That seems so big to me.  But really, nothing is impossible for me!!!

Matthew 17:20 He replied, "Because you have so little faith. I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you."
