Heart : Keeping it all in perspective...or at least trying to.



Hello Friends,

What an eventful few days it's been!  A packed weekend, with lots of fun things, followed by a little disaster and frustration on the home front.  

Lets start with the good, shall we? 



This weekend I had the privilege of hearing Joyce Meyer in San Jose - what an encouragement that was!  Her book Battlefield of the Mind was the topic of the weekend.  We can control our attitude and outlook on life...always a good reminder.  Little did I know, I would have plenty opportunity to exercise this only a few short days later. 


Sunday evening we had an almost front row experience at a Carrie Underwood show with friends of ours...she was spectacular.  What a voice!  I can only dream of having the vocal chops she has!  Maybe in heaven, right?? ;)






{I'm not much of a country music fan [but I do love Carrie], I don't even own cowgirl boots [gasp! I know!] So my blonde curly locks was the most "country" I could muster.}

Sounds like a great weekend?  I know... it truly was.  But yesterday afternoon we came home to a small drip from our bathroom ceiling and didn't have time to mess with it cause we had a concert to be at.  So we called maintenance, left a vm and put a bucket under it.  Problem temporarily solved, right?

Well, this morning we woke up to soggy carpets, a musty smell and water dripping from several areas of our ceiling.  I don't know what it is with me and flooding apartments.  This isn't the first time I've been through this.  

While we love the little place we call home, we're rethinking the situation.  In the mean time, I'm trying to keep my Joyce Meyer advice in the forefront of my mind.  Attitude and outlook has everything to do with this.  Lord help me...

XO

  4. oh that sounds horrible! our street recently flooded and I had to wake up at 5am to bucket some water out of our garage, it didn't get into the house but when we lifted the floorboards there was a mini lake underneath! hope you get dry soon!

    1. Rebecca - oh no! That's awful...nothing worse than discovering water anywhere it shouldn't be. This is my fourth flooding experience - I'm totally over it! Everything is drying out today though...I'm glad we live in a dry place ...it's really helping the process along. :) -d
