That is the question that I was asked yesterday by Squee Inc.'s Holley Gerth & Stephanie Bryant. My answer to that question could very well be a game changer. The one that leads to the victory in this game called life.
I can't stop thinking about it. I see how the Lord has been working in my heart, how He has lead me to seek to find my purpose and that I too have been asking myself forms of that very question. What am I here for? And not in general terms as in "I am here to point people to Christ for God's ultimate glory." That's the cop out answer that I give myself. But why am I here? As Sherri. Wife to Randy. Mom to October, Ivy and Step-mom to Cheney. Artist. Pastry maker. Sinner. Rebel. Jesus lover. Coffee enthusiast. Blogger/wanna be teacher. Beauty seeker & beauty maker. Amateur chef. Servant. Decorator. Creator & purveyor of small joys.
How does it all fit into one picture? How does it all line up to leave a legacy? Here it is.
I would cook chic food with lavender & man food with meat. Homemade pastas & experimental chocolate desserts. You could help if you wanted to. The smell of homemade artisan breads mixed with the soft, rose-like fragrance of Ranunculus would greet you at my door. I would serve you and even wash your feet to remind you how loved & special you are. I'd teach from my mistakes & God's grace. Love & pour inspiration into the lives of so many who say "I wish I was creative like you." (YOU ARE-by the way. I can show you how to unearth the artist inside you. I promise.) I would tell Holy Spirit stories and know that you'd go home with one of your own.
My husband would have his workshop where he would teach men & women his art of furniture building, each guest that opted to would walk away with something they built with their own hands. Randy is also the best prayer warrior I know so the spiritual impact would be incredible I just know it.

I know this dream will evolve and be tweaked again and again, but this is my beginning. The first time that I am able to see a picture of what I want my life to be like as Randy and I grow older and our kids find their own wonderful lives. Maybe our children will even want to be a part of this. My heart is so content to think on that.
What about you? Would you come
Thank you Holley & Stephanie. Maybe it was God's timing, or maybe you're geniuses. Maybe both. But I learned more about myself and my business in our one hour conversation yesterday that I have in the three years since I started S.D.G. I think you both & Squee Inc. Are AMAZING, and cannot wait to see what comes next.
