The journey that I am on is not an easy one with all the ups and downs and the twists and turns but I know it is a journey that is worthwhile and I will gladly go through all that comes my way because I am a better person with all the things I am learning along the way.

Will I stumble and fall? YES!!! Will I get back up? YES!!! Will I give up? NO!!! Will I give in? Only to HIS WILL!!!

There will be detours on this journey and they may come in the form of my health, a relative or friend needing assistance, or even me waking up on the wrong side of the bed, as the saying goes. But the good thing about all detours is that you NEVER have to start over again, you just continue down the road because ALL detours end up back on the main road that you started on to begin with.

God is at the helm and He is working this plan for me and I am thankful that I have included Him as my partner. Yes, it would be nice to have a physical buddy to work with and see daily to give them encouragement as they do me but that is not the case, so I trust that God has walked before me to make my crooked places straight as we go through the ups and downs and the twists and turns of this journey which is like a roller coaster ride.

Lord, thank You, for ALWAYS being there for me and knowing what is best for me while You teach me how to get your temple in Divine Order, as I continue walking after You!!!! In the Matchless Name of Jesus the Christ, AMEN!

    Yes and No. LOL First time we sold our beautiful home after 20 some odd years it was due to wanting less work outside. Almost 2 acres and a lot to take care of PLUS we didn't have the finances to keep up all the expenses with the animals. We miss that place though. We bought small and have enjoyed the less work in and out very much. I won't miss the stairs! I want single level again. The work we did on this one was so needed to open it up due to the size of the kitchen and dining area and to put some storage in. When we moved in we only had the tiny closets upstairs and one downstairs for coats, the pantry and about 4 cupboards and 3 tiny drawers in the kitchen. Just crazy! Now it is a storage haven for such a small home while preserving the useable space! This next purchase we definitely may look at as a flip though. It's stating $115,000 (not sure if that is the minimum bid or what yet) and the houses on that cute culdesac sell for $170,000 or more. Could definitely make a profit on that one!

    It began Sunday.... "I want to go to the water party on Saturday....." LOL I guess the selfish part of me doesn't like us not together at church, but the goal is wanting them to enjoy being at church and learning about living for God.

    I like your comment "I am a POWERFUL woman of God". I strive to be that kind of woman. I'm a work in progress and thank God for His patience with me. I know I couldnt get through life without Him nor would I want to. God bless you.
