Just a short note today. Not about fashion or trends, but about a new step we are taking here at New For You. Today, after 20 years in business, we are officially launching our Facebook Page for the shop! This is something that I have been working on and planning for several months. Finally, just a few minutes ago, I uploaded our very first photo images to our facebook page!
Now, for everyone out there who is computer literate, this sounds like no big deal but, for me, who can do just a little more than turn the coomputer off and on, this is a very big deal! (Thank you Lord, for giving me a wonderful husband who is a computer/techno guru!!)
My goal is to post new photos of the great items we take in for our "friends" out there to see. My prayer is that this venue will bring more of you into our shop to become more than just our facebook friends -- we want you to become our "life" friends, or even better, our "Faith Friends!" (If you have ever come into the shop and been invited into an impromptu prayer circle for a fellow customer -- which happens quite often, you know exactly what this means!) :)
Many of you are familiar with The Prayer of Jabez. (I am not going to go into this prayer in detail but, if you are not familiar with it, I encourage you to google it and look it up.) One of the parts of this prayer is to ask God to extend your territories and to broaden your sphere of influnece for Him and it is part of a prayer that I pray each morning, together with the ladies at the shop, before we open. Ironically, just after I posted our first facebook pictures, I received an e-mail that had this excerpt in it.
'“Behold, I am doing something new! It’s already happening; don’t you recognize it? I will clear a way in the desert. I will make rivers on dry land.” Isaiah 43:19 Sometimes your business will need to move as the market pulls you in a different direction. Sometimes, your territories will be extended into areas or arenas that are totally outside of your comfort zone. You might need to reinvent your business, and you should not be afraid. God’s always got your back." '
I take this little blurb as confirmation that taking the plunge and moving our business into the world of Facebook is the right thing for us to do and that God will indeed, "Have our back" in this new arena. Yes, we do hope that it will increase our business and look forward to it as a way to reach beyond our walls. But, more importantly, we look at this new "territory" as a way to meet more people --- people like you --- who may need not only a new dress, but a kind word, a loving hug, or a heart felt prayer spoken over them. Yes, New For You is a business, but above that, it is a mission field given to us by The Lord to serve others for Him. Come . . . Let us serve you too. Until next time I am . . .
Praying for all of my readers daily,
