Will I ever catch up

with all of you….I am hoping too.  There just doesn’t seem to be enough hours in the day to get everything done that needs doing.  Like the old sayin goes, “the faster I go, the behinder I get”.

"Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God." Phil 4:6 NKJV

It's perfect for hubby and I and we can sit back and re evaluate our priorities and decisions we need to make without all the pressures of owning our own home.  I am finally starting to feel  like I can breathe again.
It’s hard to believe that I was away from my blog for over 5 weeks, but so much has happened in that timeframe.  Moving day finally arrived.

Let’s just say without the goodness of alot of friends, I would still be moving.  We made the initial haul to our new home on the 18th of December, but we continued to move for the next 8 days.  Yep…you heard me right.  8 days and on the 9th day we closed on house.  Closing was on the 27th. 

Whew, so you know what that means, we had Christmas in our new little apt. amongst boxes and all.

I must admit that during the time I wasn’t in the most festive mood.  My mood and attitude was anything but cheerful.  I hurt and my whole body ached.  Now looking back, I hate that I let this move take the joy out my holiday.  Even though we had one little tree( I normally have around 7-8), it was decorated and there were presents under it.  Which wasn’t easy to do.  Have you ever tried moving and shopping for presents and decorating for Christmas ALL at the same time.  If not, I DON”T RECOMMEND IT!!! 

After the holidays and the closing, hubby put me on a plane and sent me to Kentucky for a week.  To spend with family and just to regroup.  I can’t tell you how relaxing it was to just “do nothing”.
airplane So now I have been back home for over a week and I am trying to get myself on a schedule and back in the groove….making my list and checking them twice. 

I hope everyone’s new year has started off good.  Did you make any new year’s resolutions?  I didn’t.

However there is one thing that I want to achieve.  I am reading the bible in 90 days.  Several years ago, I made a goal to read the bible, something I had never done completely.  And I am pleased to say that I did it.  So this time I thought it might be a good idea to do it in 90 days. 

Yesterday I spent some time changing a few things on my blog….I plan to make a few more changes in the near future.  Nothing big, but just want a fresh new look…

I received a email from a anonymous reader who asked me “Now that you have taken the apron picture down, is it possible to see it again?”   Yes, it is, thanks for your email and for stopping in and dropping me a line.  I was going to email you back but no return address.  P.S.  This is one of my favorite pictures too.

2 Corinthians 5:19-20“that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God.”
