Our New Home

27 Jun

I was thinking of making a point to blog about the progress of our move.  I missed out on that though.  We are here, unpacked and all decorated – NOT!  We are here….we are 92% unpacked I’d say…and the decorating is a work in progress and of course the most fun part!  I have enjoyed dreaming (pinning on Pinterest) and shopping (very little) and seeing a room come together (okay, one bathroom) more than I realized I would.

Let’s sum up the last few weeks….

June 14th – Friday

8:30 am – movers arrived at old house, started loading

9 am – walk through of new house

9:30 – close on new house

10:30 am – keys in hand, met movers at new house

12:30 pm – movers done, we started unpacking (with help and moral support from lots of family….my fave part)

1:00 pm – new furniture arrived followed by Windstream, Dish Network…Mike hung blinds….

June 15 – 16 – Saturday & Sunday

Unpacked, cleaned, more family came over….Dad hung ceiling fan in living room…assembled a few things….

June 17 – 18 – Monday & Tuesday

Both of us worked and came home to pack…again…for vacation.  Yes, we did that.

June 19 – Wednesday

4 am – Departed for Disney World, we drove (ok, Mike did)….stayed until Monday, June 24th….FAST FORWARD

June 24 – Monday

Christian’s 15th birthday….

4 pm – Returned home from Disney

6 pm – party for Christian at our house (FUN!)

June 25 – Tuesday

Both Mike and myself took vacation for this day as well to recover a bit.  We ended up spending it shopping, picking up the last of the TVs, finishing a bathroom decor….and enjoying the company of my sweet Zoe (family friend that we are blessed enough to live so so so close to now!)….great day!

June 26 – Wednesday

Back to reality.  Worked today and came home to cook my first meal.  HA!  Hot dogs and french fries – nothing but the best!  🙂

I really feel like the last few weeks have been a blur…an absolute blur…but it’s been so awesome and all for the best.  I’ve enjoyed seeing more of my family, starting a new chapter as we make this house a home and celebrating my baby boy’s birthday….life is so awesome!  God has blessed us so so so much and I’m ever so grateful for these blessings…

Forgiveness

7 Jun

A couple of weeks ago, one of our pastors preached on FORGIVENESS.  I walked away with many thoughts about this topic.  I find it interesting that so many people throw around the request to be forgiven as well as the words “I forgive you.”….funny how it becomes easy to SAY.  How good are we at actually DOING it?  Pastor Murr talked about how when we are presented an opportunity to forgive, we should remember how WE WERE FORGIVEN.  And we were.  And are.  Over and over.  Because we sin.  Daily.  Our Lord forgives us.  He already has.  He paid the debt for all of our sins and we are FORGIVEN.  Who are we to not forgive someone for hurting us, for lying to us, for letting us down.  How many times have you done that to Jesus?  Jesus isn’t bitter.  He doesn’t love us less or treat us differently.  He forgives and forgets it.  Try it.
