trusting God

Trusting in God to me is not an act I have to do, nor is it something I do because I have no other choice. Trusting God, to me, is simply a response to the fact he is Good & the work he is doing in my life (even if the process hurts) is good. When God created the world it was a process, and each day even though the world was not yet complete, he would see it as good. He knew the Earth, and exactly what it was missing. He knew the dark, formless, & empty Earth needed light, living things, and beauty. He provided all those things in an orderly, creative, and perfect way.

I trust in God who is in control of his work, and is so creative about it. I trust in God who knows exactly what is coming next in this process.

I trust in God because I am his creation.

tacky or trendy?

Today is December 1st. It is officially okay to play Christmas music without annoying certain people. If it were up to me, I'd play Christmas music all year long! This Christmas will be incredibly different for me. It will be the first Christmas away from my mom, sisters, in-laws, and nieces/nephews. However, my husband will be coming down to Mexico to spend it with me & my family. *MUST FIND MISTLETOE!*

Anyway, since we are on the topic of Christmas...have you ever been to a "tacky Christmas sweater" party? They are so much fun! Although most Christmas patterned sweaters can be pretty gaudy and well, tacky...I have found some to be wearable. And by wearable I mean out to the store without being looked at funny.

You see, not all Christmas sweaters are tacky :)
