Don't Quit 5 minutes before the miracle


LOve this room, and the draperies are  right up my alley.

The unusual wood paneling behind the bed is fabulous.

This kitch i love the casement windows, the ceiling, and the view. :)

Maybe you’ve had this experience too…
you’ve waited for something…
you’ve prayed for something to happen…
and it seems like forever…
and you feel like giving up…

God’s timing is better than our timing…

for me...
that is where the faith I have worked so hard on developing
comes into play.
Just when people tell me to throw in the towel,
close the shop, cut your losses,

How dare anyone to tell me to give up.
Insensitive, I say. 
This is my real Fu--ing job, and has been all of my life.
I am DIGGING my heals in now!!!

Maybe you've had this experience too…
you’ve waited for something…
you’ve prayed for something to happen…
and it seems like forever…and you feel like giving up…

God’s timing is better than our timing…
I had one of those days today...
a customer from an old firm I worked for 
looked me up!
To finish her home.
I am all smiles.
How about you?

Listen to your inner voice.
That inner voice IS DIRECTLY placed inside us from G-d.

    children are born with an inner voice
    and 'well meaning adults' drive it out of us.

    i have had a few hard lessons in my life....
    and it was because i listened to someone else's advice for me.

    my g-d voice is clear...and he didn't bring me this far to drop me now.
    xxxx thankyou tina

    I move forward through change.

    While change is inevitable, my response or reaction to change is up to me. How can I best prepare myself for change, and how can I make the most of it?

    Change is a transition from one thing, one place, one state of mind to another. I am evolving from what was to what is. I am becoming more than I was before.

    Just as my view changed as I transitioned from childhood to adulthood, I now see that I am gaining a new perspective during this transition.

    I may be stepping into unfamiliar territory, but this step is an opportunity to grow in spiritual awareness. With each shift or change in my life, I am moving forward.

    When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child ...; when I became an adult, I put an end to childish ways.--1 Corinthians 13:11

  8. Me too, absolutely love those draperies!! Miracles happen when we don't give up..., and keep doing what feels right, and what we love! And it's best to surrender to that... and give up attachment to results then the ride is even more enjoyable. Happy for you!!!

  9. People sometimes misunderstand our desire to do something we long. I learned a long time ago to listen to my own heart as long as it didn't hurt anyone else, and God does put that voice in our heart.
    Keep up the great work.

  10. I love those curtains, too. Fabulous! You are so right about God's timing. There are so many moments in my life where the time was on God's clock, not my own. And in the end, all worked out they it's supposed to. Congrats on the call from the client - clearly they know how talented you are!

  11. Oh Renée,
    I am so pleased for you. You have worked so hard and deserve to now reap the benefits.
    This is just the beginning .... you had better get some rest, as I think you are going to be very busy from now on.
    Thinking of you. XXXX

  12. My sweet Renee Sistah...
    I am sooo proud of are learning to trust the One who breathed life into you. Good things DO come.

    (now about that f-word.....hehe)

    ( I am in TN with an ailing MIL...I know you can relate)

  13. Renee,

    If you truly believe it, it will work, your destiny is in your own hands! Don't let others doubts creep in to your mindset. If I gave up everytime someone told me "you can't do that", I would be standing in a different place now. Follow your inner guide, it won't let you down.

    2012 will be a great year for you and remember, no matter what, everything has a reason. Keep moving forward dear friend!

  14. Renee,
    You have an amazing talent, be strong, and know that you deserve to succeed!

  15. How wonderful for you. It does make you feel justified for sticking to it, doesn't it? Congrats!

  16. Congratulations!!! I know there are many more clients to follow too.

  17. jax

    i wish i weren't across the pond....i would give you a big hug!!

About Renée Finberg

I have been in this business since the age of 22.

I love what I do and cannot imagine my life without Design.

Design Challenges are great.

And because of those challenges

I have imported fine antique pieces from Paris,

Designed and Manufactured Furniture,

Created Fantastic Window Treatments,

And solved all kinds of spatial & architectural issues

With my unique style.

If I can't find it, I create it.

My rooms would make excellent movie sets.

I am a visual, tactile and audio sensitive individual.

Creating is what I live for, not math, not spelling, not science.

Just Great Design.

Just imagine how it would be if each of us,

If only for a few hours of everyday,We could be in a space that is our very own.A place that is exactly the way we want it to be

Surrounded by all the things we wanted to see,

The atmosphere we wanted feel, smell and the sound we wanted to listen to.
