A little gravy…

Well, it’s been about three weeks since my last post and obviously there have  been A LOT of changes for our little family in that time. That last week in the old apartment, I was not motivated to cook or clean! For someone who vacuums religiously everyday, it was quite the departure from my normal routine.

My parents and younger brother came over to help us move.  Before loading up the truck we enjoyed a delicious lunch at Sandcastle Cafe on St. Simon’s Island, GA.  Yet,  all the fresh fried flounder (try saying that five times fast!)  in the world couldn’t repay my brother for taking over a lot of the heaviest lifting for me! Thank the good Lord we were not moving across the country and the move in itself was fairly uneventful.

I spent  last week setting up housekeeping here.  Do you know how much I worried about this apartment? Is it going to be big enough? Clean enough? Safe enough? Enough is enough and looking back at my despair over not having ENOUGH seems rather silly! We picked this apartment because of the convenient location. There were not a lot of options for us in the area so whether or not we have a view here is irrelevant. Worrying over all of the above didn’t change a single thing. This past week has been a good reminder for me to not only adjust my priorities, but to just quit worrying so much!

Now that all the boxes are unpacked and the storage closet is very packed,  I can happily report that we are settled in and making our home here.  Sometimes we  just have to focus on the big picture and make the best of a situation. Our family is healthy and my husband has a job he enjoys. Everything else is just gravy.

Since I’m nosy ;)  and love to see other people’s homes I thought I would share a quick (It IS small!) tour of our new home.

Dining Area

The dining area is away from the TV, thus forcing us to enjoy each other’s company while we eat, rather than the evening news. :)

Knick Knack Knook

I’m calling this the Knick Knack Knook, rather than the oddball place for a family portrait, AKA family shrine.

I love how pretty my antique dresser looks by the window. The blue glass knobs are lovely in the sunlight.

We gave the boys the "Master" bedroom. They LOVE the large garden tub and there's room for the school desk and computer.

Cozy. I'll leave it at that.

“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?…
… But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

Matthew 6:25-34

 

One thought on “A little gravy…

  1. It’s so easy to forget that verse at times when we think our problem or situation is too big NOT to worry about. Its funny how the enemy can trick us into feeling like bad mothers and wives if we aren’t worried! He tries to tell us that not worrying is not caring. All of a sudden we begin to think “To be good mother/wife I have to figure out every detail?” The truth is that we serve a God that is so much BIGGER and has already figured out the details!! We just have to pray and obey. Thanks for the reminder ;)

    I love you and your “little family” and am very happy for you. Love the new location too…We might actually get caught up on some of those beach trips we always talk about ;)
