a measuring stick for my journey

Occasionally (and it should occur more frequently) the blessings in my life pile up to an extent that I feel completely undeserving and inadequate for all of the "good things" that God has entrusted me with. Even in the middle of all of this economic upheaval, we Americans are so blessed. D and I spent the weekend looking at houses. Buying property seems like such an adult endeavour, yet God's direction seems very clear to me. Putting down roots, building a home, pouring out our blessings on others...I'm excited to see the results of this! As a side not, I'm so excitied at the ease with which D and I make big decisions! :)

Forgive me, it's on my mind a lot these days. I had an expectation that wearing an engagement ring would feel like a tether, that I would somehow feel more tied down. I have been given, however, a new lightness. I almost feel more purposeful in life. Looking forward to this whole marriage thing!

I had no idea how all consuming wedding planning, wedding details, wedding decisions would be. I am a little shocked at how quickly I was sucked in, as it's quite frequently the focus of my thoughts. This all translates into being all that I talk about...which is the recipe for boring relationships! :) I'm not sure how to balance this new aspect of my life into my current busy-ness. Ahhh back again to the process, the journey vs conclusion...! A theme in my life nearly!
