A lot of thought has gone into what I would name my blog. It was important to me to find a few words that could describe where I am in my life right now and not just spiritually but literally. Where am I ...I thought? Geographically speaking. I mean I know what my address is and I know I live in the Ozarks and I know I am not in California anymore, but I still cannot pin point where I am.
Soooooo..... I asked friends and boy did I get responses! I received text messages, FB comments, private messages and phone calls. Everyone seemed to know where I am, except for me!
I'm a city girl by every definition of the meaning and here I am in this country-ish life. I am learning so much about myself and I will continue to learn more as I live this new life. Life changes all the time and we change with it (or do we)??
Genesis 12:1-3 Now the LORD said to Abram, “Go from your country and your kindred and your father’s house to the land that I will show you. And I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you and make your name great, so that you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and him who dishonors you I will curse, and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”
There are times in our life when change is required. Change is necessary. When we repent, we are changing the way we think and we are realizing God's way is better than our own. How we embrace it depends on how we except God's plan for our lives. I am fully embracing the new life I have and give God all the glory for everything.
However, one thing I have not fully embraced are the BUGS!! I didn't like them in California and I don't like them here. They are bigger and there are more of them. I have tried many different home remedies to kill them and have even bought chemicals from the store and I finally found one that works. It is easy and inexpensive and safe and the bonus is it smells great (to us) not to those nasty little creatures!
Here it is...the best bug killer:
- peppermint oil
- cinnamon oil
- spray bottle
- Fill the spray bottle with water (I used 22 ounce).
- Pour a 1/3 of each oil into spray bottle.
- That's it!
Share and enjoy....
