Today is my wife's birthday and for 17 days she will be older than me. It feels like that I have been left behind. It is also the day for our annual family Christmas party which will take place at our place. Up to 30 people will be crammed in here. A few of the family members will spend the night so the sleeping arrangements may prove interesting if not problematic. On Christmas Day will just be my wife, her daughter Melisa and our friend Dan for dinner and opening of gifts. It is going to be a chaotic few days that's for sure. I pray that all goes well especially to today's party as my wife has put forth tremendous effort to pull this off. She will be the star of the show.
2017was a very busy year but went really well and a lot was accomplished and all of the bills were paid on time.
This year I am determined to quit smoking, attend to my dental needs, gain some weight, and established an overall healthier lifestyle. Sometime before summer my wife and I will finish our complete reading of the bible from cover to cover and begin another complete reading. Each time we do this we use a different bible version to gain a better perspective of spiritual matters. Today we will start also with a new daily devotional and a bible study guide. Sometime this month I hope to change my work schedule so I can attend weekly church services on Saturday morning.
I pray also for God to provide extra financial income and will do my part to accomplish this.
My wife has her own personal goals she hopes to meet and work on and I am fully supportive of this. God has blessed my with a wonderful wife and with His grace I will work on to becoming a better husband and to be more attentive to her physical and spiritual needs.
I thank God for the opportunity to humbly serve Him each day in whatever capacity or situation that He places me for the work that He has prepared for me to accomplish.
I pray for all of my CC peeps to have a prosperous 2018 in their humble service to the Lord, to keep fighting the good fight and to keep their eyes on the prize.
oh my, what an awesome POST to share with everyone: you have honored us with your
confessions and goals and Love...you are an awesome man, obviously called and Blessed
by our Saviour - our prayers are with you for the strength and courage to accomplish what
God has convicted for you to accomplish, dear one...
My prayer for us both is to put into Action what we both have spoken in words. My goals for this year are to loose some weight because if I don't I'm not sure how many years, months or days I will remain here on earth as I did not age well last year and had trouble breathing, right knee was in pain so walking was a problem also and most of this has to do with too much weight. My other goal for the year is to be much more thrifty and conservative with finances as we have too much debt for an older couple and need to shave off some of our debt so finding ways to spend less and save more.
That is enough to work on for one year. Other than continuing a closer walk with God and my honey. I am truly thankful and blessed that God allowed tourist entry into my life as it is so much better to have a partner to continue the journey of this adventurous life.
Tomorrow is my 4th anniversary as a member of the community and I'm looking forward to spending another active and edifying year with my CC friends and family. It has been quite an adventure thus far and I'm looking forward to what may come next. There are quite a few quality members on this site and it has been my privilege to get to know you all and to share little tidbits about myself that shows how I tick. God bless you all and everyone.
It's always good to enjoy God's great outdoors. Maybe in our new life we can take a fishing trip up the Amazon, catch some piranha's and fry them over a campfire. I have found that it is the simple things that give us the most pleasure.
I have just accomplished the task of replacing a defective on / off switch that controls the fan and the lights in our dining room. What I did was swap the switch with the one in our half / bath downstairs that turns the fan on and off. The fan hasn't worked since I arrived here almost 4 years ago.
Now, I have fixed quite a few things already in our house including all of the toilet floats, an upstairs walk-in closet light, a complete light fixture in the kitchen and some broken tiles on our staircase. I will also replace that fan in the half-bath but not at this moment.The whole swap process only took 30 minutes yet I waited 6 weeks until fixing it. My wife is out doing an errand and I wanted to surprise her by having our fan and light in the dining room working again. While I was at it I also repaired a broken chain that controls the fan at the fixture.
My next household project is to get the water / icemaker in the fridge working again as it has been down for over 3 months. I suspect that the water filter may be clogged so I will go to Lowe's to get a new one, install it, and see if that solves the problem. Even if it didn't the filter still needs replacing regardless and this is the most likely cause of the problem. Besides that, I miss having crushed ice in my beverages, while my wife prefers cubes. In this we are different. Actually, we are different in many ways and yet we compliment each other's qualities.
These are just little things but also necessary things that a husband does to keep the home in order. I got a little closure too and a small feeling of accomplishment. My motto has always been why do today what you can do tomorrow. That must change as that is not a wise policy. God will help me in this as He has always helped me.
The biggest help that He has provided is trusting in my care the wonderful woman who is my faithful and loving wife. I'm the one in the marriage that is a piece of work. Like it says in Isaiah, "...a little here, a little there." Such is life.
