SO. we live in 'affordable housing' if you will and we love it! There are a few things that one could say is an absolute must that we do not have. I say they are comforts, not necessities. Lately, I believe, God is relentless at killing my idol of comfort. Boyyyy do I loooove my comforts. Comfort foods, comfy clothes, no teething baby at 6 months old, more than one closet for an entire apartment (including clothes) yep we have no bedroom closet.... and the list could go on for a mile.
This morning I realized that I actually have a manual of this idol. It came to me as I threw another temper tantrum. This was a good one.. reality TV worthy. I would have been bleeped out for a good 30 seconds as I chucked a paper towel across the kitchen. *which landed in the sink, btw.. score!* Seriously though if I did have my own reality show, it wouldn't last more than an hour before breaking the camera persons arm shouting' turn that bleeping thing OFF '
anyway, coming back from the rabbit trail, i pray for patience ALL THE TIME. With my husband, with dear Oliver, with the free internet here that kicks me off every 2 minutes, and i think to myself.. once life slows down and our finances start looking up...then my attitude will change.... baaahaaahaaaa.. welcome to 90 % of AMERICA Jenny!!!!!
well, I feel better now, i think. Because in the midst of this chaos I have a Constant. The Holy Spirit does not cease to bring gentle reminders of his love and grace and sufficiency. That yes, I do not have it all together, or at times anything together ( i feel ) .. but God, the Creator, most Powerful... calls me by name and I am his beloved???? WHAAAAAA???????
amen, thank you Jesus.
oh and for Father's Day Ryan is getting a haircut at Del's Barber Shop .. that's how we roll.
He was stoked about it!
love my simple husband, what a treasure.
