Hello all my very missed blogging buddies!
I can’t believe it has been a week since I have been online.
I have been checking in as often as possible, although I do admit, I haven't been leaving many comments.
My internet has been down since last Tuesday, just got it up and going today and it is too difficult for my chubby fingers to type on my phone. :)
Plus it has been a hectic, Crazy, exhausting week!!
We were able to have our yard sale Saturday and we did pretty good. I was able to clear a lot of
junk hidden treasures from the the house.
I really thought it would be difficult to let go of some of the things, but surprisingly, it wasn't.
I was actually glad to see them sell, even though I can admit, it was mostly because I didn't want to have to move it all back in. :)
I worked on getting things set up from 9AM on Friday morning and didn't finish until 10:30PM that night.
OMGoodness, I don't think I have ever been so tired and sore as I have been since the sale.
Yes, I’m still super sore!!
Mostly my legs. Ouch!
I keep asking myself, Are you Really that Out of Shape??
YEP, I SURE AM!!! LoL!
Now onto the title of this post…
While I was cleaning out some things I came across some old photos of my house.
We moved into our home April of 2003 and these were taken later that year.
I actually giggled when I looked at these. Oh my, how my taste has changed, IMO for the better. Heehee!
So lets step back in time…
The dining room…
My goodness, I sure had a lot of stuff! When I was looking at these I kept thinking,
“Oh wow, I remember that”,
“I had forgotten about that”, etc.
And yes, sometime’s…
“Man, I wish I still had that.” Heehee
Things are starting to come together…
Dining Room Present Day 2012…
Now onto the kitchen…
Present Day 2012 …
Present Day 2012
And one more final look back….
The living room.
Present Day 2012
I hope you got as big of a kick out these photos as I did.
I was talking to my daughter about them and saying something like, I can’t believe how I had the house decorated, it’s funny to look back.
And she said,
Yes, and years from now you will see pictures of how it looks now and think the same thing.
Of course, I profusely denied that!!
Now onto the second part of the post…
I’m actually doing a lot better.
I give all the credit to God and all you wonderful people who have been surrounding me in prayers!
I feel so much lighter these days.
Yes, all the same situations surround us, as they did before, but everything feels different now.
Different since I surrendered everything to God.
No more worrying, no more dreading, no more pity party.
I know it may roll up on me again, especially when we get a buyer and I actually have to move.
But I’m going to try not to let it.
I’m going to try to stay faithful and strong.
I decided to look at all of this as an adventure.
I don't know where I’m going, how I'm going to get there, but I’m going to release trying to control everything and let God lead us.
This might sound silly to some but something that I found that helps me, is asking myself this…
If Jesus arrived at my front door and said,
“Come with me. I want to take you somewhere. I have a journey for you.”
Would I be afraid?
Would I question his decisions?
Would I tell him, that I don't want to do this or that?
Would I take his hand and trust that no matter where we went I would be taken care of?
So that is my view on life right now.
Walking with God and letting him lead me. Not me tugging and pulling, trying to control the journey.
What a relief it is!!!
I don’t have a clue where I’ll be a year from now, a month from now, or heck even tomorrow, but that’s okay.
Because I know without any doubt we will be okay and that God will lead us to where he wants us to be. Where ever that is, I know it will be so much better than anything I could have planned.
So once again, I ask that all my wonderful blogging friends please forgive me if I am not around much.
Please don’t forget about me! :)
*Or think that I have forgotten about you all, because that will never happen!
We do have a couple coming to view the house Memorial Day Weekend.
They live up north and will be down this way for the holiday.
They have seen photos of the house, exchanged emails and Brett spoke with them on the phone.
Yes, I still have all those half finished projects to get done.
So that is what I am going to get started on tomorrow.
I have a feeling my body aches are only just beginning! LOL!
I’ll be sure to let you know how it goes.
Thanks so much for stopping by to visit!
Until next time…
Take care and Prim Filled Blessings to you All!
Marie, what’cha think about Tea’ being in town?? :)
