The honeymoon phase is over… But the house is still amazing!
Sometimes we think, oh, surely… surely if I get this or if that happens… surely then I will be happy, we will be better, things will be lovely... but the truth is, we bring ourselves into every new and better thing!
Even in a new home, the issues we face are those we brought with us; off kilter schedules, differing opinions, unpleasant habits…
So, the true method is to greet each day with a new measure of grace. Grace for ourselves and for one another.
And be thankful for all of the places we are in, the new and the old, the challenging and the exciting.
Truly grateful to live in the house that God built!
