"Brand New Ending"!!!

'Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone
can start from now and make a brand new ending." Marcus Aurelius


Life is all about start overs.. Our life this year is a "Start over".. Not a bad thing.. in fact
it has truly been a blessing. We have had some rough times and we are the Better for it!
We will be moving in about 3 weeks.. We have lost our home.. It is o.k. We are sad.. a normal
emotion.. We have lived in our home for 10 years and have lots of memories there.. God has
other purposes for us now. Our life is in his hands.. We have been led out of the darkness and into the light.. I know what Peace feels like.. I don't care what HOME we live in as long as we are a Family together and a Family that Never gives up on each other, loves each other unconditionally and keeps forging ahead.. There is still a lot to learn and we all marvel how
God has guided our life.. every step of the way.. I feel truly loved!!!

Allyson.... You are getting some new neighbors :)....

You are an amazing example and I am happy for you. I like what you said - you don't care where you live as long as you live together as a family and family sticks together! it's a blessing and it is eternally true. all the worldly trappings mean nothing but the family ties that bind are the only solid cords to hang on to. It's actually the most beautiful thing in the world. thank you for reminding me again what it's all really all about. you're a great friend and we all love you so much. sooooo much! i love all the rest of you too. thank you to all of you, my friends.

I love going to your blog. It is so pretty and you always have inspirational thoughts and ideas. I'm trying to prepare a Sunday lesson and a talk for sunday but blog hopping is more fun, you have actually given me some idea for my talk. Thanks

I feel the peace in your post. I am so grateful for this huge blessing of the Brand new ending. Love the title. Speaks volumes. You are truly truly a remarkable lady that I can say has taught me so much. Love ya Caleen. Take care of you and your family. You lost just a house. Your family is your true home.

I am a friend of Kim's and have found your blog through hers.

Losing your is a great fear for many, especially in the current financial climate... and I really admire your faith and trust in our Heavenly Father. He really is the one we have to trust in... and he never lets us down if we just put our hand in his. I have learnt that peace can truly be ours if we just believe and trust in him.

Hope the move goes well and you have fun making your new house your home. I can see all your creations that you'll have no trouble... you are so talented.
