Running in Fields of Wildflowers Feeling

I've never really liked the word "business".  It just seems so hard, cold, and uncomfortable.  So to my surprise, when I started Meek & was nothing like that.  It was dreamy, freeing, and running in fields of wildflowers kind of feeling.

In one of my deep thought moments this weekend, I believe God lead me to a memory that I hadn't remembered in many years.  I was in my hometown, in the backyard of our parsonage in the country.  It was a rare time that we had a church gathering over at our house, and I was maybe in the 5th grade.  I was running wild, talking to random people on our brick patio.  A man asked me what career I wanted when I was older.  I remember saying "I don't know, but I don't want a boss.  I want God to be my only boss."  The other men around laughed, and I was completely serious.  The man then said, "Well, I guess you will need to be the CEO of your own company."  Other than that sounding really boring in my young mind, I remember replying "Sure, whatever."

I was reminded in church this morning, that it's not about me.  Any kind of success, or good that happens with Meek & Wild, will have less to do with me, and more to do with others.  Our pastor reminded us that we are "salt of the earth".  Not the meat, bread, or even water.  We are 'salt'. The taste and flavor, not the nutrition.  Our pastor said, "We are not the Bread of Life, meat or milk, or Living Water.  We are salt, not the sustenance.  We are salt not the Savior."  I felt like the Spirit was really shedding light on what Meek & Wild should be.  It should not be the 'end all be all', it should only be what points to the Greater Good.

Jesus is always reminding me that all these beautiful things in life are not the end point, they are just a sign on the journey to The Beautiful.  If you take anything here on this earth, just a face falls very flat.  Any earthly 'good', or even something as wonderful as life, and love...these valuable things that everyone seeks for are in a void on there own.  Without Christ as the giver, supplier, and perpetual pursuer, as well as our final rest...these beautiful things are yet a waste.

The wonderful thing about life, love, and beauty in the world is that God created it, and continues to sustain it, and pieces of Himself are pointing the way back to Himself...and I get to be a part of seeing it, and helping share the portions that He has shown me so that others are guided to Him.

Before I close, I want to sincerely thank all of you that have made the first orders of Meek & Wild.  I can not tell you what kind of joy it brought me.   You will always be treasured in my heart.

Thank you for blessing Meek & Wild.

Cheers to another Beautiful week.
