This is my temporary home

I've had a lot of people ask me lately how we are doing in the midst of all of the changes that have occurred in our lives lately. I have to admit that often in the past I have been guilty of finding security in the comforts this world has to offer. I think it's human nature really, yet silly just the same. We all know money doesn't equal security- and yet we live like it does anyway.

As we transition into full time missions almost all of our comforts have slowly been stripped away. We are living in a temporary home, with temporary living room furniture, temporary table, temporary dressers and a temporary computer desk.




 I fully admit it hasn't been easy, and yet it has been a powerful reminder that regardless of where today has each and every one of us, we all need to remember that whether we have temporary lawn furniture in our living room or the sturdy, beautiful, name brand stuff...

it's ALL temporary.

If you want security in something that will last forever I can tell you exactly where to get it. It comes with a life time guarantee and never changes. It's solid as a rock -and not a better quality can be found. It has been here since the beginning and will last through the end. 

It's all right here, just waiting for you to come pick it up and get this~ it's FREE. :) 




Thank you Lord for your word, because in the midst of all of the changes-we know what we have invested in you will last forever. :)

Wow, Amy. That is all I can think to say except that ...we came into this world with nothing and we leave it the same way. How is it that we think we cannot live without so much stuff in between. What has been the hardest thing to let go of so far?

As I deal with a new critter showing up on our property today! This is all temporary - doesn't matter and I MUST count it all joy. YES, even the 5ft snake on my fence on our deck. Holy Moly am I being refined even in the comforts of this beautiful house!

XOXOXO

Absolutely true! Living without a sense of permanence just makes you long for your forever home, which is the best way to live anyways. Eyes on the goal. May He bless you!

PRAYING for soooo many more to find what is TRULY PERMANENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Great reminder Amy. As we deal with my husband's loss of his job....it was a great reminder that the comforts of this world are just that...of this world. Thanks for taking me back where I need to be heading during this time. Praying for you and your family!

So cool to read this right now as I scope my home for all of the non-essentials I can unload in a garage sale to start filling the pickle jar. ;o)

Love you, friend!!
