Simplifying Sarah

Sorry for the strange title! That my friends, is the blowing sound I just made to get the dust off this blog!!

I have had a very strange year, indeed. Moving (again), falling in love with my husband (again), getting on medications for my diabetes (again), changing churches (again)…. lots of repeats of the last few years of marriage, but with better outcomes overall!!

Funny how you can just do something- or you can commit it to the Lord. Whenever I’ve just DONE something by myself, it’s never worked out… but after committing these things to God, they seem to work themselves out. I plan on ending this year well, sharing my thoughts with you all… and I plan on starting off 2012 even better, by keeping you all posted!

Overall, God is just really really good. I cannot type enough words of how good he has been to the W’s this year!! All I know is that I had ‘planned’ for me being pregnant in 2011, and afterall- it’s not happening, but guess what…. THAT’S OK! I’m starting a new journey… and that’s what I’m really excited about. Follow that journey here.

AND I’m still selling mark. cosmetics… I’d love some Christmas business!

So as I’m  sitting here writing this blog, I’m thinking about what kind of day I’m going to make today. A “manic Monday” our a “marvelous Monday”?

I woke up feeling fairly ill. Took a nap before work and woke up to a co-worker asking me to clock in due to a family emergency. I’m glad I was around to  help… Then after she came back clocked out for 2 more hours until it was my shift. (We only have one car so I spend early mornings at work since Mr. W works early).

Today started fairly manic and nuts but I’m trying to turn it marvelous. Sometimes life is making things happen earthside (putting faith into action), and praying for God to make happen what you can’t.

So what about you? Are you reinventing your moments? Your days? Weeks/months/years? How about your crappy/crabby attitudes?

Are you hoping for the impossible and enjoying the improbable? Are you standing on the edge of the valley looking at the horizon  and sunrise to come, or looking back at the troubles to climb?

Close your eyes, breathe, and remember Psalm 46:10- “Be still and  know that I am God…”

And, have a marvelous day.

xx Mrs. W

How many of us can really say we enjoy life, even a little (let alone to the fullest which would be everyone’s ideal)? I definitely don’t enjoy everything all of the time. But I will share my favorites from this week…

1- How beautiful the weather was when not rainy
2- Good ole’ fashioned thunderstorms
3- Iced coffee from burger king with whipped cream on top
4- Finding the perfect bowling ball for my finger size and ball weight- $5 from goodwill!!
5- Sitting out on the balcony before bed unwinding.
6- Wattpad app on my droid allowing me to read new fiction.
7- My job. I love it!
8- Having a great landlord who bought us a brand new stove!

What are you enjoying?

Happy 2011! I know theres a lot of dust on this blog and probably no more readers, and it’s already April… But Happy New Year! Haha. Life has been a wee bit crazy for me (us). But Mr. W and I are doing well. God is good! More later I suppose.

Totally haven’t felt like blogging in a very long time. Sorry ya’ll! Here’s a blurb from facebook that I just posted…

“Reflecting on 2010- moved again, lost 2 cats & gained one dog, FT permanent job for hubby, FT hours for me, said buh-bye to roommate, grieved over a lost baby, started as a mark. rep, started the year feeling completely STRESSED- ending the year feeling completely BLESSED… come on 2011, show me whatcha’ got!”

I promise I’ll blog a bit more in the near future!! Love you all,
