Post It Notes...Decisions

Lately I have been wondering again if I am indeed doing the right thing by staying home. Mr. Miller and I have had many a discussion on this period in our lives. Decisions and options have come to us and yes, God I am seeing the "post it notes" again. I am not at liberty to discuss in depth but I feel at peace for the first time with some of the options.

"Do you want to be counted wise? Here's what you do: Live well, live wisely, live humbly. It's the way you live, not the way you talk, that counts." James 3:13 The Message

"Our Lord understands our limits. He realizes our struggles. He knows how much pressure we can take. He knows what measures of grace and mercy and strength we'll require. He knows how we're put together. Frankly, His expectations are not nearly as unrealistic as ours. When we don't live up to the agenda we have set, we feel like He is going to dump a truckload of judgment on us. But that will not happen. So why do we fear it could?"

I am not sure but these passages out of one of my devotionals really spoke to me this morning. Thanks Chris. I felt that I need to share these with you as many of you might be feeling some of the same doubts in your day to day lives. I am asking for your thoughts and prayers during this time and transition in our lives here at Green Acres, there are some exciting things about to happen. Blessings to you all!
