Lessons Learned in 2007

Lessons Learned in 2007

about life:
  • Forgiveness takes a lot of work
  • consider the source of the criticism before you take it to heart
  • God does not do things to us out of spite.
  • Ultimately God's opinion of me matters far more than others.
  • Move on from past hurts. Dwelling on them keeps you in the past and hinders growth.
  • You can only spend so much time worrying about others before it leads to stress. Pray is far more effective.
  • God's timing in perfect.
in marriage:
  • admit when you are wrong
  • an apology can go a long way towards a good relationship
  • sometimes it doesn't matter who was right and who was wrong, the important thing is to move on.
  • forgive your spouse
  • when you keep God first in your relationship, everything else falls into place
  • friendship and communication (and God of course) keep a relationship strong
  • dedication to working through conflict only makes you stronger.

Some of these lessons I have learned, I am still in the process of putting them into practice.

Moving time is almost here. Close to half of the house is packed. We have a moving truck reserved, and this weekend starts the moving process. I am excited, nervous, anxious, and scared all at the same time. I can't believe how limited the time we have here is.
