A New Look for a New Chapter in Life

I truly believe that God provides different chapters in a person’s life for different reasons (ones that we may never know). Sometimes the content of the chapter may be similar but details or the reason behind the change is different. Those of you who read my last post (and thank you all of the encouragement) know that I have been having mixed feeling about this new chapter. But after a lot of praying and letting go I am starting to really settle in and enjoy what God has in store for us.

Today in bible study we talked about how God can throw interruptions into our lives and it is how we respond to those interruptions that God uses. These interruptions can be anything that causes the course of our self-planned life to detour. For me, I always thought that when we were ready to have kids we would have them. Well we all know that God has detoured my plans in that area. But it is not up to me to question why he does things, instead I have to chose to look at it as His divine intervention. He may have other methods for us to have kids or He may a have a specific time for me to get pregnant, whatever it may be I am going to joyfully (although sometimes I may not sound so joyful) settle into these detours because God is the one who is driving here :)

Okay so now onto a lighter note…I have entered the domestic world again and I have missed it!! I decided last night after really enjoying my first day work free that my blog need a make-over to reflect this new change. It feels really nice to have the house all clean and be able to meet the hubs for lunch. I am also proud to announce that I finally started cooking again …by the way if you are looking for really flavorful Pasta recipes Giada De Laurentiis has some really yummy stuff! I actually made a  menu for the week and went real grocery shopping (not just picking up diet soda and frozen dinners). So here is to embracing change and really trying to listen to what God is doing in our life.


  1. that is awesome about making a menu and cooking more! i love cooking, and i love making a menu! it makes me feel organized :) have fun being domestic!! :)
