Ready for a Christmas party
Four – Let others in on your adventure…
Being builders we are often living in temporary digs. And with that comes the temptation to pull back from having people in our home – waiting until we are in our new house etc. One day a very long time ago when I was in one of these temporary living situations and having these tempting thoughts about taking a rest from hospitality, I felt the Lord speak clearly to my heart. He gently reminded me that I did not know what tomorrow might bring, and that we may never move into that new home we were building. To be truthful, I did not like to think about that. As my heart began to open back up – so did the door of our rickety little house on 9th street in Huntington Beach, California. Over the period of time that we lived there we had more people over to share a meal, and even live with us than we had previously experienced! I am so thankful that we did not miss out on the fun times we had making all of those memories! Many have joined us in our garage for a meal, and some have even slept over in our guest room:)
#3 – Less is best! While living with less (of my stuff around) I have come to realize that I really don’t need everything I thought I did. Don’t get me wrong I enjoy nice things – just less of them. Being forced to choose what I really like best and want to use daily, has given me a sense of freedom. Using everything I have also makes me feel like I am being a good steward.
Two – Be thankful for what you have…
When I turn the spotlight away from illuminating what I don’t have – and focus it on what I do have, thanksgiving fills my heart. Contentment is a gift, and a natural result from this shift in focus. The basics of life often go unnoticed and unappreciated too. I know God is smiling when I thank Him for the food I have to prepare for my family, the shelter over my head (especially when it is raining) and the hot water in my shower! In thanking the Lord for my basic needs that are met on a daily basis, when others go without – brings me to my knees and causes my heart to well up with humble gratitude!
Four Things I Learned While Living in a Garage
My husband Len and I had the opportunity of living in our garage/shop while building our home. With the economy woes our stay was longer than expected! This experience changed my life more than I could have ever imagined. Each day I will share with you one of the four things I learned; I hope they inspire you…
One – It really doesn’t matter what people think! I can’t tell you how much time I have wasted on worrying about what other people think. When I shift my focus back to what I sense God is telling me to do, instead of others are saying I am on the right path! I am not talking about wise counsel – that is something that is always welcome. There is true freedom when I can share that “I live in a garage,” and not feel embarrassed about it!
For those of you that have shown interest in writing a review for Home Matters on Amazon it’s easy:
– click on the “purchase now” button on the right side & scroll to the bottom of the reviews – click write a review. It doesn’t take long and you can edit your review, even after you have posted it – you will receive an email from Amazon allowing you that opportunity.
Because Home Matters was written to be a life time resource for you, many of you have just worked in the area(s) that you rated high on your stress test, (which you are encouraged to do). Why not write about the areas (chapters) you have applied, if you feel differently about your home, or if your stress is lower. A review does not have to be long 🙂 I hope this helps!
This is my current screen saver, and one of my favorite photos I have taken. I love being reminded to “scoot in close” to God and He will “scoot in close to me:)
For more Scripture photos:
1- just click on the “printable scripture card collection” in the dashboard.
2- Choose the card you would like (you can choose them all).

4- Choose “save image”
Now you can use the photo as a screen saver, or print the card and place it in a frame. This is a fun way to remember God’s amazing promises for you!
