I have often wondered how honest I should be on my blog, like should I be writing down all my deepest darkest fears and talking about some of our private stuff? But then I thought, isn't this what this blog thing is all about? So I have decided to lay it all out, everything. So here is my very first, very personal post, I don't usually talk about this kinda stuff.
So the husband and I made it to Church on Sunday, and it was great. Without getting all religious on you, I think there might be something to this.
Now don't get me wrong, I have always been religious and believed in the man upstairs and everything in the bible, but if I am honest with myself, I think I was just going through the motions. On Sunday, after having an amazing time in Church, I (we) decided to make a conscious effort to live a Christian life, yes I am saying it out aloud!
Like I said, it's not like I haven't being, but its now just more of a concerted effort. I know its only been like two days, but what a difference already, I just feel completely at ease and relaxed, I am thinking about what I say before I speak, and yes the foul mouth has stopped! But seriously its been good. The biggest change though, has been the small things that have happened in just two days.
Firstly, due to some work issues we are on a extremely tight budget these days. We are fine (thanks to my wonderful parents), but we are watching every single penny (literally!). So the idea of us going away is out of the question at this stage. However, a good friend of ours offered us his holiday home, how amazing is that?. We really need to get away and forget all the worries for a weekend.
Secondly, we got a call from Francois' family yesterday morning, with an unbelievable gesture. I won't go into all the details here, but know that it was amazing.
Which has got me wondering, all these great things have happened since Sunday, coincidence, I think not.
