You alone are the Lord.
You made the skies and the heavens and all the stars.
You made the earth and the seas and everything in them.
You preserve them all, and the angels of heaven worship you. ~Nehemiah 9:6

Welcome Back

Who hasn't shopped at or at least heard of Hobby Lobby. My hubby reviews books and posts his reviews on his blog. One of the books he recently reviewed was a book called Giving It All Away and Getting It All Back Again by David Green, founder of Hobby Lobby. I read the book last week. I was really impressed. They started out by making picture frames in their garage in Altas, Oklahoma. I believe it grew into the billion dollar business because God was blessing it. I really like the following quote found on page 123.
"I believe with all my heart that these are the reasons—along with the good business sense God also gave us—that Hobby Lobby is as successful as it is. It was God's idea. It is God's company. It was only entrusted to the Green family. Our job has been to lead it to the best of our ability in a manner that honors Jesus Christ and touches as many lives as possible for eternity."
I totally enjoy shopping at Hobby Lobby. I appreciate it even more after reading the book. Most of us will never do things on the grand scale of David Green, but it is a good reminder that everything we own actually does belong to God and we are just stewards of it. It is my prayer that we will all be good stewards.

It occurred to me that some of you might like to check out my hubby's blog and read some of the dozens of reviews he has posted there.
