Change is near

We are coming to the end of July already and I'm having to plan ideas to start off our new school year! We have a lot going on in our house--getting an SUV in the next week, starting to homeschool, expecting finances to make a positive change upward, and looking for a new home in the mountain community about 40 min. north of where we are now! All things I'm looking forward to but at the same time, stressful. Doctors say some stress is good for you, though. I believe this is the good kind. Everything is happening between now and Labor Day weekend, including my finishing my next book and getting started on the publishing road with that! Wow! I am glad I know my God is in control of all this because I don't know how I could handle it without Him. Well, the weekend is upon us and I'm looking forward to a bit of relaxation. . .I hope! :) At least it will be an enjoyable one! Hope everyone stays safe.

Someone told me today that with the way the world is today, and he proceeded to give examples of negative situations such as terrorists, devaluation of the dollar, high unemployment, etc., that there is no hope for the world. I was so sad to hear him say that because what is there for all of us then?; what do we tell our children-that there is no happy future for you? How do you go on and why would you want to if there is no hope? I immediately prayed for him, for that is a man who does not know God, or even worse, has given up on God. God is hope; He is there for us all the time; He is our eternity. We have a short time on earth and forever with Him. He is our hope and with Him, we can get through the most difficult times. Without Him, the man was right, there is no hope. Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved. Acts 16:31

Mid-Summer Blues

I just can't believe it is mid-July! School will be starting in a month for most kids; My son and I are homeschooling and so we basically learn all throughout the year. Right now, besides finishing up editing the book I'm working on (Think Your Way To Success!), my son has started football, and we're making plans to move to the mountain communities just north of Santa Clarita. I can hardly wait to get back to living in the mountain regions. Haven't ever been to that area but I have lived in several mountain communities before and really miss it. My son and I are going up there this coming weekend to look at some properties and check out the area. I will make sure to take pictures!
