True Story: Homeowners

We just can't hide it anymore! And by "we" I really mean "I" because I'm pretty sure Edu would be okay with hiding it from everyone until we found ourselves 100% settled in and fully-furnished (in other words: about a year from the actual move in date!). Tomorrow we become actual homeowners (!!!) with keys, and a garage, and a doorbell - everything you could ever imagine and dream of! Say it isn't so?!

So the many hours of this:

is so going to be worth every drop of sweat, and every strained back, because of this:All the thanks goes straight to God! We never expected this all to happen so quickly. I remember the day my hubby told me it was time to start the somewhat dreaded house hunt. But I knew it would all go smoothly if we gave it to God. And honestly, it fell into place so calmly I can hardly believe it - or remember any of it. We only stepped foot in one house - no fixer-upers, no fancy 6 bedroom-ers, or cute cottages with picket fences and green pastures, none of the above. Just a model home in a new community, less than 2 miles from what we have been calling home since we got married.

Leave it all in God's hands. He knows what He is doing, He has a time for every big moment in your life, and things go so much smoother if you don't try to carry heavy loads on your own. Stress can so be avoided! Cast your cares, prayers, and petitions to Jesus Christ, you will find complete peace when you do!

Anywho. Among all the cardboard box hoarding, I have also consumed some pretty delicious bites along side my hubby. We watched (part) of the best movie I have ever heard and immediately sung along to before he said "enough 'tis enough" and I found myself in the kitchen, willing and ready to finish this goodness-awesome film tomorrow, sans spouse that for some reason can't stand movies where every other scene is full of song and dance. Go figure. Ooh and do I have the pictures to prove all that FOOD!? yes. why yes I do.

  • Exhibit A: breakfast [spinach, coconut water, frozen 'nanner, strawberries, blueberries, wheat germ, ground flaxseed, 1/3 block of tofu, rolled oats, chia seed raisin almond sunflower seed topping]

  • Exhibit D: tommorow lunch [filling for tofu + dumplings]
  • Exhibit E: tomorrow dinner [rainbow bean delight with pinto beans, tomatoes, onion, green beans, corn, summer squash bits, brown rice, serrano chili and red cabbage joy]
  • Exhibit F: dessert [zucchini squash loaf, almond butter drizzle, fig jam for dippage, apple banana frozen blueberry cinnamon bowl]
Today was wonderful.

So was reading at church this morn' about how pumped we should all be about working this week! And by "working" I really mean going to our 8-something to 5-something jobs and loving what we are doing and serving those in need and working our hardest 'till we are borderline exhausted and keeping in mind that we are at that specific job because God placed us there for a reason even if we have no idea what it is (even though His Word tends to make it pretty clear: give to those in need with however much you earn)! I'm pretty excited.

Anyone who has been stealing must steal no longer, but must work, doing something useful with their own hands, that they may have something to share with those in need. Ephesians 4:28

PS: "stealing" doesn't necessarily mean taking money out of someone's wallet at work, it can also be referred to as sitting lifelessly at your desk, twiddling thy thumbs, or picking your nose while getting paid. We're all guilty, let's not hide it.
