Here’s to laying down that bag of potatoes | Feb, 25 2015

Hello all,

What a gorgeous day it is…snow swiftly falling(and not sticking yay!) and making everything look so beautiful. I love tree branches covered in snow. It makes me happy.

As we near the end of February, I am reminded of all of the beautiful blessings that have already come my way in 2015. Small simple things and reassurances that I am headed in the right direction. Thank you Lord! And I mean that with all my heart 🙂 If it weren’t for the good Lord constantly watching over me I am not sure where I would be…staying on track is a conscious daily effort. It’s daily reminding myself to stop and take my vitamins, to eat healthy and read my devotion, say my prayers…whew…I am serious, some days it will be 10pm and I don’t even know where the day has gone.

I have had people from time to time say to me that my life looks easy, that things just seem to happen or come together for me…(my mouth drops open) Seriously??? No way…

As anyone who works, owns their own business or is raising children can attest…this ain’t no easy thang! In fact, it’s crazy hard and stressful and overwhelming at times. It’s almost more than I can take some days. BUT….thank the Lord, I have faith in the good Lord and he is with me every step of the way. He holds me up when I can’t stand anymore and spurs me on when I am spent and feel like I just can’t keep going. I honestly don’t know where I would be if I didn’t have him holding me up everyday…scary thought. So easy? Heck no! Raising a family and working, building a business is a beast!! It’s like climbing a mountain while carrying several 50 pound bags of potatoes! My oh my!

sack-of-potatoes

The truth is…life is hard and we aren’t perfect…we are broken. We were created broken and will remain broken because it is in that brokenness that we need Jesus. It’s his way of bringing us back to him so that he can love us. If I could say one thing about Jesus that I think most people misinterpret it would be that he is all about rules, that he expects us to be perfect, not to make mistakes; that if we don’t follow the rules and behave perfectly he looks down on us and we are unworthy of his love. That couldn’t be further from the truth!!

Yes, we are unworthy, yes, we are sinners and we make mistakes BUT he already knew we would. He is the one who gave us free will. He knows we will be imperfect and fall occasionally. And every time we do, there he is to pick us up, brush off our knees and help us to stand again. Every time. I find peace in that. I find strength in that. And I live my life KNOWING he will be there when I fall and when I am so weak and exhausted from my crazy life that I can’t stand on my own anymore.

Here’s another thought for you…how much does that bag of potatoes you are carrying really weigh? What are you really carrying in that sack? Is it worth it? I get it. No one wants to appear weak or unsuccessful. No one wants for others to see that they are tired and worn out, that they are sick to death of keeping up with everyone else and pretending to be something we are not. I get it. I do it. I am the worst at staying busy because in the stillness I can see ALL of me. Yep, all of me and I don’t always like what I see. If I keep busy, I don’t have time to look at me or the path I am on too closely. Can you relate?

Are you busy? Are you carrying loads of potatoes up mountains everyday? Are you pushing and pushing for success that meets the expectations of others? Success that looks good and even feels right but do you wonder where the path is leading you?

It is in this pursuit of this perfect life and perfect Facebook posts, SnapChat stories and Instagram posts, that we have to ask ourselves, are we living the lie? We have become masters at concealing our own heartache and disillusionment with this life. And there will come a day when we just can’t do it anymore. We will fall on our knees or our flat on our faces because we are spent, we are exhausted. Are you there yet? I am and I am over it and it feels soooo good!!

I will still have mountains to climb with sacks of potatoes on my back…that’s just how I am wired but I will be more conscious of what type of potatoes I am carrying and if those potatoes are worth the time, effort and energy. Life’s too short and my Jesus has so many plans for me that I am afraid I might miss if I don’t lay down a few bags of potatoes 🙂

Here’s to eliminating a few extra bags of potatoes and only carrying those that will make a difference in the lives of others. After all, we are here to serve others not ourselves.

In his name,

Kim Hoegger

On Your Mark, Get Set, GO! | Jan, 14 2015

Ever noticed the stance of a runner as he gets into position before a race? I never really thought about it because it’s just what runners do, right? But as I journeyed through my devotion this morning, “Dare To Be Devoted” by Natalie Grant and Charlotte Gambill, I was able to see the stance in a totally different light. Think about how they crouch down with their feet on the blocks, hands on the ground out in front of them, it’s awkward and looks really uncomfortable. I never really considered why they were in this position. I just assumed that it was “the way” to start a race.

Prompted by a gentleman with a flag they follow a command of “On Your Mark, Get set, Go”. Ever thought about what those commands mean? On Your Mark, Get Set, Go….and how might that apply to your life? After reading my devotional, it sure made sense to me. I have a new found respect for the runner’s pre-race stance.

So how do the commands given to a runner and his pre-race stance have anything to do with us and the way we live our lives? Allow me to explain what I learned.

So many times, like right now for me, we are busy trying to figure out what we are doing next, making changes and moving in a different direction. We fix our eyes on the goal and we tear out to make it happen. Right? See the goal, make it happen. I am a doer!!! My sweet Daddy, God rest his soul, used to say, “If you want something to happen, let Kim handle it. She’ll get it done and she’ll do it right.” And true to that, that’s how I roll. BUT…sometimes, I jump out of the starting block before I have allowed myself the time to get ready and that’s when mistakes happen. That’s when God gently pulls me back and declares a “foot fault”. He wants to let me know that my start was invalid and I need to rethink it. I need to regroup and start again.

I can be in such a hurry to get on to the next task that I fail to pay attention to the way in which I started. My lack of internal posture directly affects my starting position. “It’s the ability to control the starting process that determines the pace and power of our performance once the starter gun is sounded. In a professional race the smallest error in that starting line up can throw the whole race out. An incorrect starting position can even mean disqualification.” from Dare To Be. Isn’t that the truth?! Why are we in such a hurry? Why not take the time in the beginning to get ourselves into the right starting position so that we can run a good race? Doesn’t it just make more sense to “Get On Our Mark” first? Then, “Get settled into the position” and THEN GO?

In this season of my life, I think it’s especially important to think before I act…to get on my mark first, settle in and then take the first step. I want to make sure that my eyes are fixed on Jesus and what he has in store for me. I want to be spiritually ready and have a proper internal posture that puts me at His feet first. Time doesn’t stand still as we wait for His direction but as I have experienced so many times in my life, His timing is always better than mine and I will be rewarded for my patience in waiting for His direction.

From Dare To Be:

1. Is your spiritual posture aligned correctly?

2. What do you need to re-align so you can run with greater strength?

3. What agenda do you need to surrender at His feet first?

 

“On Your Mark, Get Set, GO!!! Here’s to a brilliant 2015!!!

We’re Going Mobile in 2015!!! | Jan, 02 2015

We’re Going Mobile in 2015!!!

So where do we go from here? That was the question that consumed my mind throughout the Christmas holiday. How do I remain accessible to my clients in the Dallas area without a brick & mortar location?

Go Mobile, of course!!!

It makes perfect sense! Online shopping and delivery services are all the rage! It’s the wave of the future, so why not jump on the train or in our case, maybe a MERCEDES SPRINTER?? Sounds good to me! Why not bring the studio to our customers? Why not eliminate the hustle bustle and stress(and parking nightmares) associated with shopping the brick & mortar and make the design process a breeze! New upholstery for an old sofa made as simple as selecting a fabric(in your own home with the proper lighting and all of your other gorgeous things) and having someone come and pick it up and then deliver it when it’s finished? Sign me up!! I never have to leave the house?? It doesn’t get any better than that, right?
