There's still one area left to sort. If I get to it before the attic gets too hot, that's fine. If not, it'll keep til Fall. We will finish the garage (R & CJ started that on their own, WITHOUT any prodding from me...see, it's contagious!) I do have some things I want to fine-tune in the house, but I'm definitely winding down.
I've received comments from other bloggers who say I've been an inspiration, a "hero"...which makes me want to shout, "BUT YOU DON'T KNOW ME!"
I know me.
I know that it is all because of Him. Believe me...BELIEVE ME...when I tell you that absolutely none of the changes in my life would have happened without His guidance (and in some cases, I've gone kicking and screaming). I can't take any glory here, because I know myself too well.
This isn't false humility. It's the unvarnished truth. As I think back on the past year of my life, I can't believe what He has done.
The working wife has become the wife who happens to work.
The busybody has become a homebody.
The hoarder has become a minimalist.
The one who couldn't slow down (for fear of looking at herself) has become the one who cherishes and anticipates the Day of Rest.
And the one thing I hope each of you knows is that if He can do it for me, He can do it for anyone.
I will listen [with expectancy] to what God the Lord will say, for He will speak peace to His people, to His saints (those who are in right standing with Him)--but let them not turn again to [self-confident] folly.
~Psalm 85:8 (AMP)
