Did We Make The Right Decision?

It is hard to believe we have been in our new location for about 4 months now.  Time has flown and we have savored every second of being here!  Still no regrets!

The last time I posted about this, I showed you a picture of what the front of our house looked like right after the mOvE.

Since that time, we had the front addition built back on!  We L O V E it!

I will paint the house in the spring (hopefully!) and when we re-roof the house (someday) we’ll move the pipes and attic fans to the other side to make things a little prettier :)  We will also extend our garage and make a porch that connects the garage and new addition .  Of course, lots of pRojeCts here and there, but nothing that can’t get accomplished in a lifetime (and if you know me well…you know that I LOVE a GoOd project)!  What a trooper of a husband I have :)

After reflecting on our crazy 6-month experience, I want to eNcouRaGe you to make steps in your life that YOU feel are right.  If we would have listened to some people, we may not have moved our home.  We would have made poor financial decisions because we felt the pressure of others.  We would have missed out on the fAiTh journey we experienced during the moving process.  I’m not saying that is was always easy, but when you feel confident in your gut, you’ll sleep better at night…regardless of what everyone else is thinks.

If you are considering making some big life decisions, don’t be distracted by the rest of the world.  Team up with God and the other person you are making the decision with, and you’ll be able to enjoy living life the way you want.  After all, it is YOUR life to live!

Stop Staring at Me!

Are you ever trying to break a bad habit, but the hAbit is always staring you down?  I was having this issue over the weekend with a red velvet cake.  Although I knew there were a tremendous number of calories in every slice and how sluggish it made me feel AFTER I ate it…I still wanted more.My solution?  The cake went in the trash.  I eNjoYed two small slices over the weekend, but I won’t feel guilty for throwing something away that is only going to make me feel worse.  Back
in the day and I would have never thought to do such a thing.  Knowing that there are people in the world in nEEd of something to eat would have kept me from tossing it.  However, keeping unnecessary snacks and junk food around the house would just be contributing to another big problem in this country, weight management.

Sometimes we have to take eXtreMe measures to avoid being stared down by our tEmptAtions.  In the end, we need to do whatever it takes to set ourselves up to SuCCeeD.
