Wait, is re-evaluation even a real word? Been in the legal biz too long cuz we just make 'em up as we go along.
After surviving (and I literally mean "survive" in every sense of the word) a horrible 2008-early 2009, we are now actually coming out of the darkness of those days. And with this emergence we have come to some new realizations. And just affirmed some old stuff we already knew.
First, the old news is that together we can make it through anything life throws at us. We're pretty damn tough. Sometimes even tougher than we think we're capable of.
Second old news is that even when our faith is weak, it is a lot stronger than others. And out of the difficult times we always come out more committed to our faith and our Lord. He truly never deserts us - - we just sometimes let the hard times block Him from our line of sight.
New news is that we have shuffled up our priorities so that enjoyment of life as a family makes it closer to the top of the list. In the past we have put too much emphasis on new stuff, better stuff, top of the line stuff. Well, we're gonna start livin' on the cheap from now on. Guess what? I don't need a new truck every two years. And neither does the Hubster. Because we have a new goal.
Something that brings our little family immense joy is a place. And our resources are going to be re-prioritized so that we will have a home at this place. It's not a goal that is going to be accomplished overnight but it is a goal that brings excitement just in its simple undertaking. I can only imagine the joy to be experienced in the actual work to get to the goal.
God is good all the time. All the time God is good.
