Get out Murphy

If you follow Dave Ramsey, you know he says if you are not prepared, Murphy moves in. Well, we are prepared to a certain extent, but Murphy has moved in on us. New tires for the car (Thank you Lord for allowing the blow out on the freeway with all the kids in the car to happen on a clear - non-raining day), new spring for the garage door, car acting up and Chief's job getting worse and worse.

I see change ahead of us - me going back to work, new jobs, open to moving where a job may lead Chief, change for the kids... I am in a moment of complete panic right now, but yesterday I was very peaceful and calm about everything.

I think God is trying to show me how to rely on him in everything. My first reaction is not to go to God, not to pray. That is changing for me in a real way. Funny, when I go to Him first, I am calm and know everything will work out the way it is suppose to. It really isn't funny or a ironic -it is real faith and I am finally learning. Took me long enough, huh God.

Okay, it is cold here!  It is only mid-October and the heater has already been running since September and I have broken out the socks, PJ pants and long sleeve t-shirts to sleep in already (sexy, I know!).  I usually don't do that until January or so.  I haven't heard the official prediciton for the winter, but it sure seems like we are in for it again this year.

But I love this time of year - to me it is a fresh start (just like spring).  The colors are incredible - God made for sure.  So I will take the cold along with the beauty that comes with the changing of the season.
