Soooo...Jesse and I were talking the other night about how things seem to happen at just the right moments. I know it's not funny, it's God working and bringing things to you when you are ready, but Jesse and I are finding this to almost start looking like a game, a puzzle to be exact.

I feel like I have been on a journey searching for something. I want to surround myself with people I want to be like, good people, good people with morals, and positive attitudes. I was discouraged with my church and all the politics that seemed to go into it. I had a friend who had been telling me about her church and I just felt like it wasn't right at that time. A chain of events happened where we wound up taking this financial class with this friend. We met more people through them who fit the above description. My mind started to change. I wanted to see what else was out there. We decided to go to this new church on Sunday. I LOVED it. Not only did I feel like I received a message from God telling me, take it slow, relax, trust in me, I know the way, but I also felt energized and actually excited to learn about God! I have only felt this way one other time from a sermon or mass. Pretty pathetic when you think that I'm 29 and have been going to church EVERY Sunday for most of my life.

Jesse and I just feel like everything REALLY does happen for a reason. I totally believe in that overused saying, but at the same time, I HATE believing in that saying. However, I am slowly realizing that it IS all in God's hands. Who am I to judge where I am? Yes, I would love to have a child and be a mommy right now, but obviously it's just not right for us at this time. I believe whole heartily that our time will come. Call me naive, dumb or clueless, I have faith that our lives are turning around. Things are going to get better.

Who would have ever thought a year ago, Jess would not be working at you know where? Who would have thought we'd be partners with a pizzeria with a partner we BOTH trust and believe in? Who would have thought we'd be taking a financial course to help us plan our lives and future? Who would have thought we'd be as happy and close as two people could be?

See, things do happen for a reason and I have restored my faith and hope. It WILL happen, and it all begins with changing your outlook. I am truly blessed and know I have many things to be grateful for. So, I guess what I'm trying to say is...Thanks!
