A True TGIF!!!

Finally the news we have been waiting for 2 months to get. We close on our house on Monday!!! It has been a very exciting and stressful time for us. I am so glad that it is all coming to a close. Now the fun part more packing and then the moving. It is our first home and we are so excited and can't wait to get started decorating and even unpacking, I guess that will have to be in reverse order though. I have been on the phone switching over and setting things up. There is so much to get done and so little time!! Happy Friday everyone!

Here we are at the beginning of another week, a fresh start. This past week I have learned or at least been reminded of somethings. There are things we can't control no matter how much we want to or how hard we try. All we can do is our part and we have to let God have the rest. For a control freak this is very hard at times. Everyone needs strength and confidence that things will turn out the way they are supposed to. It is really easy to remember this when things are good but when things are not going so good it is harder, at least for me anyway. It makes me think of that saying be nice to everyone because everyone is going through something. That is so true your stuff might be way worse than mine but to the person going through it, it is everything to them. Your extended kindness could make a difference that you never realize. Pray for your friends and family and all those who need strength sometimes people are too afraid to ask for prayers when they need them most.

Update on Life

Well a lot has been going on around here since my last post on Colton's birthday. We have all taken turns being sick. We found out we were going to have to move and started looking for a house to buy. We have found one and after a few bumps in the road it seems as though everything is on track and we should close on the 21st. We are very excited and can't wait to get in it, except for all the packing. We have started but still have tons left to do. This is our first house to buy and boy is it fun!! The end result is fun but the whole process has been so stressful. I was making myself sick with all the worry, stress and anxiety so I am so thankful that things have turned out good and that it is settled for the most part. Colton is playing soccer and loving it. I have pictures to post but I have been so busy that I have not even put them on the computer yet. I hope everyone is doing well. I will try to post pictures later.

Change and Worry

Change this word can bring many different feelings and emotions. Changes can be good or bad and with either can also be scary but exciting at the same time. I am not big on change I like things to stay the same, I guess I am boring that way but I for sure like a comfort zone. I am also a big worrier about big and small things, it is just my nature. My husband however is a go for it kind of guy and is very care free about stuff, I guess that is why we fit together so well. Not that we always understand where the other is coming from but we compliment each other well. We are about to have some changes in our household and I am trying so hard to not worry and stress about every little thing. ( Just to stop the rumor mill before it starts I am not having a baby!!) In times when I worry I think of the bible verses below:

25"Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? 26Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?28"And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? 31So do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?' 32For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. Matthew 6:25-34

I really struggle with the letting go and letting God. I am trying and hopefully one day I will conquer this or as close to it as I can get. It is so hard to let go of the control and believe that everything will still turn out alright. How willing would I be to give up everything for my faith? I am so thankful that we don't have to find that out like so many around the world do. Are all of my worries really that important when you look at it like that? Just some food for thought that was on my mind and heart today.

I haven't posted at all this week, even though I have thought about it. I have pictures from last weekend at Korbin's party to post that I will eventually get loaded. It has been a pretty good week. Wednesday was cold weather with ice so we all got to stay home. We did some organizing and took care of some stuff, which was great. It is now Saturday and for some reason I am up at 8 a.m., crazy I know. I tend to do this on Saturdays unless I am really tired. We have a day of errands and then going to some friends house tonight to visit. I am excited about spending the day with my boys. We are so blessed. I hope you all have a great Saturday!!
