December Blog - Come Thou Fount

Have you stopped to think about just how much happens in a year? I was scrolling through our Instagram feed the other day looking for a picture I posted to show a client. I kept realizing “Oh yeah! I forgot we did that this year too!”

As a creative and businesswoman, I can truly get bogged down in measuring success, but every year I love to reflect on the story in 1 Samuel 7. The Israelites in that story were no longer slaves in bondage in Egypt, but they also were not in Canaan (The Promised Land) yet.

In verse 12 it says they took a stone and set it up between Mizpah and Shen and called its name Ebenezer. I want to sit right here with you all, Flower Momma’s! Whether you had the best year of your life or the worst, life isn’t free of it’s challenges, but where we can find comfort is in the meaning of Ebenezer - "This far the Lord has helped us". He has brought you this far, friend. He isn't going anywhere. You are not alone. You are not forgotten. Where has he helped you this year? What moments did he show up for you? Celebrate and remember, sweet momma.

“Come, thou Fount of every blessing,
tune my heart to sing thy grace;
streams of mercy, never ceasing,
call for songs of loudest praise.
Teach me some melodious sonnet,
sung by flaming tongues above.
Praise the mount! I'm fixed upon it,
mount of thy redeeming love.
Here I raise mine Ebenezer;
hither by thy help I'm come;
and I hope, by thy good pleasure,
safely to arrive at home.”

 

Love you all! Merry Christmas
