Just wondering

I've hit a slump.  Is there really a reason for me to keep sewing items for White Satin Ribbon?  Lately I've been feeling like I'm pushing and pushing, thinking I'll go miles, but when I turn around I've moved an inch.  *ugghhh*  I like to think that I'm investing my time, effort, and money for something worthy, but in reality, maybe I'm just spending my time, effort, and money.  People often use those two words interchangeably in regard to time, but everyone knows that you can spend money and missed out completely on an investment.  I LOVE making and sewing new items for people, but at what cost?  

Will this ever become a full-time business?  Is this realistic?  Do I want it to?  What are my expectations?  I'll be brewing on that one for a while longer.  

I suppose this has really come about due to me losing a wholesale client.  It was so close I could almost taste it and then.. POOF!  It left as quickly as it came.  I'm going to set my sights on my Lord and His Word that He's given to us:

Isaiah 55:8-9 (NASB)

    8"For My thoughts are not your thoughts,
         Nor are your ways My ways," declares the LORD.
9"For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
         So are My ways higher than your ways
         And My thoughts than your thoughts.

He has something planned for me.  Something even better than I dream of.
