What a Month!

Hey All! Happy to say that settling in the new castle and territory has been a behemoth of itself! Like WOW! Who would have thought that transitioning and moving would take its toll. So wonderful and tiring all at the same time. I had never been so busy in all my life, worked up and inner rested if that makes any sense. It’s just so peaceful to know this is MINE! This is OURS! This is what God gave me and its so doggone beautiful!

Like how long has it been since I slept with a smile on my face! OMG if you only knew the sleepless nights we have had. Those sleepless nights! My heart is so full. I am so grateful and I would have never known how awesome this feeling is until now.

Friday night I did some more organizing and settling in — hanging a new picture here and adding a trinket there until I got to lie down in my HUGE room with my favorite burgundy Ugg bedding. It was the most peaceful and restful feeling. I just laid there and I cried. Tears of joy. Tears of gratitude. Tears of pure bliss in this moment. I am so thankful to God for making this way.

It wasn’t easy peasy! NO! Not at all… it was a fight just like everything else in life is when you want something so bad. You have to believe God. You have to trust Him. You have to WAIT! And when you get there to that moment and He opens up that door — how sweet that is. Because it was WORTH IT ALL! It was worth the fight. It was worth all the sleepless nights. It was worth the work we had to put in to get to this place.

I love being an “official” homeowner! I had a house before that was given just to hubby but signing that dotted line to say Christina Cruz-Mendez TOO! Yes! I was so grateful. Because the time finally arrived for me to have ownership and entitlement. God is good. And I will say that I appreciate EVERY season we went through. Because even in our old place God still provided all the time — He showed up and showed off. He helped us, provided for us, gave us favor and grace for that season too.

So it is a smiling season right now. As I type this closing up this month. I enjoyed the move (even though I hurt my knee a bit) LOL! I enjoyed shopping for things that I wanted. I enjoyed decorating this new season too — especially to our liking where we can all reap the benefits. I enjoyed cooking in my new massive kitchen. I enjoyed meeting new neighbors and new friends. Most of all I enjoyed knowing that God is still with me every step of the way still blessing us daily.

More to come here. So in love with this place. ❤
Thank You JESUS!

Blessed be the Lord,
Who daily loads us with benefits,
Psalm 68:19
