Steve and I had a wonderful date tonight. We drove into Washington, DC and went to Georgetown. It is always fun to have a change of scenery and get away on a "mini vacation." We enjoyed each other's company just walking up and down the main street in Georgetown. It has some amazing old, old cobblestone streets, beautiful architecture and there are lots of interesting people to watch! We went into an upscale grocery store where the price of all the food was astronomical! I thought our local store selling bananas for $.59 cents is too much, but the bananas there were $2.00 a pound! We took some fun pictures of each other on an old bridge and then later sitting on, or standing by a big stone lion! Sometimes it's fun just to do things out of the ordinary! And as I am on my journey, of learning to trust God, tonight I was reminded again of the fact that I am so glad God is teaching me to be content with what I have. It is easy to look at stores and fancy food and become covetous of wanting bigger and better and more things. But tonight I was totally content with just being with my husband and knowing God has supplied all my needs, and will continue to do so. He is teaching me to be content and trust Him!
Learning to trust God. . . and be content. . . One day at a time.
This is a brand new blog as I am now on a new type of journey! I am learning more and more each day what it truly means to trust God. This journey is taking me deeper and deeper into what it means to surrender my all to Him. I would love to have you come along with me as I share my ups and downs, my joys and sorrows and as I seek a closer relationship and walk with my Saviour.
I need to add that I am beginning the blog again after almost a year and a half. I am still on a journey to learn to trust God and seek to know His will for me. I write mainly for myself, but anyone is welcome to join me on this journey.
