Yes, I'm a pastor's wife, but I suspect not all of my readers are Christian. I won't hold back on my beliefs, but I also won't shove religion at you. I try not to accept things just because they're told to me but read and research in order to make up my own mind. You'll find a random mix of stuff here, depending on what interests me at the moment. I like to read others' opinions, whether they agree with me or not, which means I love comments on my posts!

Gratituesday: A Place to Call Home

It turns out my health problems were caused by mold in our home - which began with a water leak fixed by the previous owner and was worsened by a couple of water leaks since we moved in. We tried repairing the damage, but there's no way to get every single mold spore out, and I am now too sensitive to the fungus. Rather than focusing on the fact that my husband and I are currently homeless in a way, I'm so incredibly grateful for my family that welcomed us with open arms into their home. We're living in my mom's house until we figure out what in the world to do about a home of our own.

It's also been a blessing in disguise. I'm able to take the time to improve my health without having to worry about every single detail about running a household. I'm spending more time with my family and am watching my brother grow more every day. And my mom loves getting to know my husband and seeing why I love him so much.

Thank you God for such a family and for providing a place for us to live!

Verse of the Day

I've been reading through Psalms, and this one jumped out at me:

Cause me to hear Your lovingkindness in the morning,
For in You do I trust;
Cause me to know the way in which I should walk,
For I lift up my soul to You.
Psalm 143:8

Sometimes, I REALLY don't look forward to mornings because of various issues I know I will face at work. There are issues I don't have a clue how to handle and many that are out of my control. Outside of work, there are other decisions I'm facing where I need God's guidance. Knowing this verse puts me at peace in each situation and helps me to face the day with a smile. I hear His lovingkindness each morning and am trusting Him to show me which way to go.
