Talents of Women

I am amazed. I have been working on the Christmas Bazaar for just about 3 months now. One of my vendors backed out last night and all evening I was calling around to people I knew that may have an idea for a replacement for me. I sit here this morning, praying, knowing, God has all the little details covered, I am at peace. I start thanking Him for that fact: 22 Vendors, 50 donations, 15 volunteers, and lot's of cool products. I thank God for the chance I have had to see such diversity in talent also. My vendors are so cool: women are so diverse! There are young women who sell high end shoes, jewelry, and clothing that are so generous with their profits, using the business as a way to help others. We have local artists that make shoes, jewelry, candles, nativity sets, clothing, hats, headbands, photography, stationary, yummy food. My volunteers are so cool as well: their talents have become so obvious: some decorate, some administrate, some give practical help, some network..this event has gone far beyond being just a fund raiser, it has brought women from all over together to work toward a common goal/good. How can I not be Thankful? This event has something for everyone: sports equipment, toys, clothing, accessories, ornaments, spa packages, starbucks gift basket, and everything listed above! This is an open event, all are welcome!
