Major Decisions

As you can tell, I have been very quiet about non-spiritual and superficial issues around the world. I had deeper matters at hand like buying a house. I have been thinking spiritual thoughts (I have been posting in my other blog) and sorting out making major decisions that my wife and I are about to make.

Well...... after meeting with 3 different mortgage companies and we got all 3 approvals that we decided to accept one of them. Today, we made an offer on a house that we were looking at. It looks like we are buying a house very soon. Buying a home is an investment because we have been renting a home for the past 4 1/2 years. I am nervous big time and I know I should not be. I have a great job and great pay. My wife has a nice job but do not pay that well since it is a small non-profit organization. My family is one of those America’s working middle-class families who are facing a wave of economic insecurity even though we do have secured jobs and we are able to pay all of our bills without problems. I take the bus to work daily which means I saved over $250 a month of wear/tear,fuel and parking costs just by paying for a simple bus pass. We have used all of our tax refunds and rebates towards our debts.

I am fretting over issues as I have in the past. The word "fret" comes to us from the Anglo-Saxon that fret often expose our true self and bring us out from behind our disguises. Often I do fret about issues and other matters. I am still fretting about my life because I am a sinful human being (still) and trying to remember the power of God's grace. No matter what I do, God is always guiding me through my circumstances. Nothing is impossible for Him. No matter what I do, God will direct me if I aware of it or not. I am learning that God will always lead me to His providential circumstances for my own good, in His will and for His glory.

We are able to afford to buy a house and we do have other resources that will help us our lives easier.

I will keep you posted. I can't wait to get back to "normal life" again. LOL
