Perspective

Somewhere along the way my dreams got too big for me. I've drawn them back in and reminded them what they are supposed to be. Even when dreaming we have to be true to ourselves. A big house with a fancy car and all the things that will make the Jones drool is not what I want. It's never been what I wanted. All of the stress and worry over our upcomming move was created because I lost perspective. I forgot what it is we're trying to do by moving away. We are tired of the bigger, better, more mentality. We crave simplicity, peace, and quiet.

there is MUCH to be said for peace... go after it at all cost.

In the end, stuff is just the estate sale that you leave behind, and the debt that stresses you out while you are alive.

All you have are the ones you love and the day you are living in now.

I am glad you are re-centering.

Peace and quiet with a contented heart is the strength and power that most never find,,,,,,,,

Peace within is the shelter that we have found long before the storm,,,,,,,

I pray that your move is an adventure that will bring a smile to your face when the grandchildren are seated on your lap,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, What a thought,,,,,,,,,,,,,

1 Timothy 6:5 Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself.

6 But godliness with contentment is great gain.

I was too tired last night to remember this scripture,, but now that I have had my coffee this morning the fog has lifted,, hahhaah
