You hear a message over and over and over again, and you kinda think “yeah, I know.” And that’s as far as it goes. What happened way back (hahaha) in June has lead me down a path. And now I’m on a mission to take the “yeah, I know” to “yeah, I actually do.” (Boy if that isn’t confusing!!)
This path is about life. It’s about health. It’s about money. It’s about time. It’s about family. And above all, it’s about God.
I realize I’ve never shared the story behind the name of my store. Above All.
Above all powers
Above all kings
Above all nature
And all created things
Above all wisdom
And all the ways of man
You were here
Before the world began
Have you heard the song from Michael W Smith? This is the song behind my store. When I was looking for a name for my store, I wanted an A name. (Just in case I ever opened a brick and mortar and had a listing in the phone book (SUPER expensive, btw).) Above All also plays every so nicely into the inventory of designer fabric! (and really I do believe sewing is about the fabric…above all. IF you love the fabric then you will love the project!)
Looking at the phrase Above All in the Bible, I felt reassured that this was a good name. A good “A” name that had a meaning to me.
For the Lord is the great God, the great King above all gods. (Psalm 95:3-5)
Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins. (1 Peter 4:8)
Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that work in us, (Ephesians 3:20)
Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life. (Proverbs 4:23)
Above All, I know that my life is to glorify God. And so, almost 4 years ago, I settled on the name Above All Fabric. (And luckily the url was available!)
Only I haven’t been doing a good job of that glorifying God part.
There are things that are going to change. As the process of the reboot continues to form, I will make an attempt to let you know what is going on. Maybe things I learned, or things that worked for me and maybe even things I have done wrong and how I would like to change. My personality is not that of an open book. Sharing is very very hard for me. So be patient with me while I try to open up. And know that you likely won’t know anything until my internal analytical self has already reached a conclusion.
Have you every done a reboot? In what area?
PS The first accomplishment regarding health is that I have cut WAY WAY back on diet coke/dr pepper. This may seem minor to some of you – but last week I only drank 2 (TWO) pops! This next week my goal is zero. I know I can do it.
