Hi Lovies! Can you believe it's the weekend again, already?! Last weekend, on the drive up to the beach- I was able to get my new iPhone 6 activated + new voicemail recorded and all of my favorite apps downloaded, so I have really been having fun playing around with it all week!

This morning I walked for an hour + talked to my Mom. The rest of the day, I have been in the kitchen, making chili and gluten-free rice crispy treats while the hubby is outside working on the exterior siding.

This week I got lots accomplished work wise||

I actually really enjoyed this week- it was so lovely having extra time to read a book, take a walk and pray + talk to God. I love the feeling of not being rushed + feeling overwhelmed in life. I have never been one to enjoy a chaotic life. 

Last night, I enjoyed picking up sushi (crunchy rolls are my new fave!) and watching movies with the hubby. I am feeling so blessed lately-God is so good and I am so happy to have him guiding my life. I only wished that I had trusted him and stepped out in faith sooner- He knew what was best for me, even when I was afraid.  It took me a few months to trust his plan fully, but at least I did finally say "Okay God, I'm trusting you & I'm going to jump now! I'm trusting you to catch me!" 

Unfortunately, so many people never learn to trust God when he gives them a vision & they never jump- I'm so glad that I wasn't one of those people. I can't imagine remaining in such a state of unhappiness or that God would want that for me or for anyone else, for that matter. I hope that if you are in an unhappy place in your life, that you will give it over to God & trust in him to help renew your life and bring you to a much better place:) "For I know the Plans I have for you", declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm  you, plans to give you a hope and a future." -- Jeremiah 29:11.

And since I am feeling so extremely blessed- I would like to share a giveaway with all of you on my upcoming blog post. I promise that I won't ask you to jump a bunch of annoying hoops to enter, but I will ask that you like my page on FB & Subscribe/Follow me here, on My Life Being Renewed.

  1. So glad your new path is coming together and your enjoying this time in your life. This week was a blur... very busy.Hubby even said this morning that he missed me. So were having a quiet weekend, the three of us went to dinner which was fun this evening. Tomorrow nothing planned other then relaxing over coffee in the morning. Pics from last week were the ocean. We rented a place for Thanksgiving week can't wait! Have a great rest of your weekend Melinda! :)

  2. Hi Deb! I agree- this week just flew by! Sounds like you are having the perfect weekend- glad that you were able to spend some time all together :)

    I love the ocean too- my goal for 2016 is to go to the beach more! Thanksgiving week isn't too far away- enjoy your week at the Beach! Hope you have lovely weekend as well :D
