On the lookout for a new place to call home...

With marriage comes a lot of changes. When Matt and I got married we moved into a beautiful and quaint 3 bedroom 2 bath house in Petaluma with the best landlords (my in-laws) in which we currently live. As much as we love Petaluma we've decided to move ourselves to Santa Rosa in hopes of getting more involved with our Church and close married/single friends (and Petaluma friends, yes we will miss you I am so grateful for the abundance that God has provided for us but it's kind of scary moving into a home, being on a title, paying a mortgage and creating a new home elsewhere.  All of that in being only 6 months married can add a lot of stress and worry. I'm reminded of a verse that brings me comfort in times of stress, 
"Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint." (Isaiah 40:28-31)

This is an awesome reminder that God is faithful and strengthens me when I feel weak in all the craziness that is my life. It comforts me and gives me peace. In other news, in an attempt to be more healthy Matt and I have started a nutrition transformation 30 day program. It's made by a company called Isagenix and we have no complaints so far. We are excited to not only relocate but also to be healthier and to feel better most of all :). I hope you all have a lovely weekend.
