As 2016 comes to an end, I think it is important to reflect on the past and look towards the future in an attempt to learn from what has happened and plan for what will happen. It is incredible to me the amount of mistakes that happen repeatedly simply because people don't learn from what has gone wrong so they don't repeat it. As we move into 2017, I think it is a good time to look at a few basic life principles to take us into the new year with a fresh outlook on the future.
1. What has happend is in the past.
Whether you want to change the past or not, the fact is, you can't. the BEST think you can do for you and for those younlove is to learn from the past and make sure that ou don't repeat the same mistakes in the future.
2. What will happen is in the future.
You can control, to some degree, what happens in your future. When you look back at 2016, there are things that happened that ALL of us would have rather NOT, but the best things we can do it make sure that in 2017, those things are not duplicated.
3. What is happening is NOW!
You HAVE to learn to be present now! What is happening will never happen again! (As far as the same circumstances.) Your age, friends, activities and family will never be exactly who they all are now and it is vital that you live in the moment and enjoy all that God has given you.
So as we all move together into 2017, let's take a look at our past, use it to plan the future and enjoy the present that we are in now!
Many people think about church during December because growing up, Christmas and Easter may have been the only time they came to church. The familiar saying of "Jesus is the Reason for the Season" has passed through the lips of many people that I have met who I know full well do not believe in Jesus, and yet, during the Christmas season, they still utter the words. Have you ever stopped to think why that is? I propose to you that it is because Jesus is the reason for EVERY season, and it is just too overwhelming NOT to discuss it during the month where He was born.
Fact is, Jesus came to die for us too, and for that event we celebrate Good Friday, and then Easter for when He rose again. These celebrations are more than just words, gifts and Easter eggs though, they are THE reason for evwery season that we go through, both weather wise, and seasons of life. So during this month, make sure as you are making your resolutions for 2017 that you resolve to keep Jesus at the center of every season, all year long. He is worth giving EVERY day to, not just one specail day every year!
When you think about a shopping trip, you might not immedietly associate all 5 senses to your excursion. Sure, many of us might associate sore feet, or the smell of food. We might even think back and remember the way a shirt that caught our eye looked or even felt to the touch. A trip to the mall or to a big box grocery store doesn't encompass all of the senses though, but Davis Mercantile isn't your typical place. From Jo Jo's AMAZING tasting pretzels, to the soft quality fabrics found at Lolly's, to the equisite gems found at Sarah Davis; it is clear as you walk through our establishment that we are different, and we are proud of these differences!
Today let's focus on what you will hear on a trip to the Davis Mercantile. There are many familiar sounds at our facility. You will hear laughter, family conversations, excited children and adults...but one of the most unique sounds at our facility will be the sound of our carousel. It isn't everyday you come face to face with a childhood memory! We have, in the mercantile, a genuine 1908 Dentzel, WORKING, carousel. This isn't a miniature or a remake! You can ride the carousel alone or as a family, and it will bring a tear to your eye as you see your children experience the same exiliration you did when you were a kid riding a carousel for the first time.
We recommend you close your eyes, let the air hit your face and let your mind take you back to that first time you sat on a carousel horse. A trip to the Davis Mercantile is more than just a shopping excursion. It is more than just an amazing pretzel, soft fabrics, amazing jewelry or even a carousel ride. A trip to the Davis Mercantile is a memory in the making. A shared experience. A lifelong snapshot of what it is like to be a carefree kid. We hope you will come and experience this with us again and again!
