So lucky, so blessed

(Disclaimer: I debated even hitting publish on this post...but this is my blog and hence my thoughts...)

Lately, I have been feeling very lucky and blessed.

The hubby and I have been on the same page for a while now. We are in sync with each other and it's been very nice. We no longer argue about money. Almost a year ago we started on the Dave Ramsey Plan and our life has gotten better and better ever since. In October, we started going to church. We have been married for almost 10 years and I have been wanting us to go to church ever since we got married. I swore I would not be that woman at church who brought her kids but her husband didn't come with her. Besides, once we got married and moved to our current city, I lost my home church (driving 2.5 hours one way was not gonna happen). So anyway, we started going to church in October...we don't argue about money anymore b/c we live on a (gasp!) budget and our life is generally good.

We've been blessed with DH having a good job. I have been at my job for almost 10 years...and working from home for almost 7 years. My job also provides our health insurance and it's better than what a lot of people have so I won't complain about it.

We have 2 wonderful healthy boys that adore each other. They have blessed and enriched our lives so much. We adore them and love spending time with them. How did we get so lucky?'s my question. And I will be 100% honest here, I am SCARED TO DEATH to even say this. I feel like things are going so well....when will the other shoe drop?? Yeah, we had some major car issues this last week but b/c of our budget and our savings, it wasn't a problem at all money wise. But I mean....I feel like I'm so lucky and we've been so blessed especially in the last year. I know there is a higher power at work here too and to that I am thankful.

I'm trying to get closer in my walk with God but I'm new at this too. The hubby and I have never prayed together before...ever. Every time we go to church (so every Sunday now), it's such an emotional experience for me. I think hubby thinks I'm crazy b/c I cry every time we are in the church service. :)

I don't know where I am going with this. Just trying to get my thoughts down on proverbial paper. Lately, I feel like things are going so well. It looks like there IS a reason for all of that.

I'll be back to your regularly scheduled blogging after this. Promise! ;P

mmm.... I know the feeling about life being so good you wonder what's gonna happen to make it stop.

That's great about your new walk with the Lord. And being emotional is totally okay, its likely the Holy Spirit at work in your heart, so don't be embarrassed! I'm glad you found a church!

I am the same way at church with crying. I feel like I cry every time. The Lord is amazing and when He's in your life, your life is AMAZING. God provides, so don't look for the bad stuff. If the bad stuff shows up, God will get you through it. I'm sure you already know this stuff, but a reminder never hurts. :)
