====================================

“A bad attitude is like a flat tire; you can’t get where you want to go until you change it!”
Author Unknown

Ephesians 4:21-24 NLT
Since you have heard about Jesus and have learned the truth that comes from him, throw off your old sinful nature and your former way of life, which is corrupted by lust and deception. Instead, let the Spirit renew your thoughts and attitudes. Put on your new nature, created to be like God—truly righteous and holy.

House shopping, the end

While looking through my tags, I realized that my house shopping years (its been 8 so far) are finally over!  We sign on Wednesday, and close escrow Thursday!  I am so excited about my new home. Not super excited about the husband working 3 to 4 days a week in Manteca though.  

These are pictures from November, but will begin to update when it is empty for some life long, before and afters.  

Sometimes, life is…

Sometimes, life is a breeze, we sail right through things. It is easy to have joy, and smile. Other times, life sucks the wind right out of you.  And then there are times, when you not really in one place or the other. Just tired, going through the motions, not really anything.  I tend to be more reflective in times like this.

I created this this picture verse collage, after reading Jesus Always, last week.  I have a dear family, that I love, whose 25 year older daughter took her on life on the 12th. So very hard to wrap my mind around this.  Lord, please touch them. Please love them. Please give me the words when I visit with them this week.  Thank you for my children, and grandchildren.  B0C44755-10C0-43AE-810B-39B29E9A72A7.JPG
