Invest in your marriage

Most married couples don't put any money into their marriage until there are problems. After problems arise, they frantically start trying to invest time and money into their relationship with hopes to make it good again. 
DON'T wait until things are bad to start focusing on your marriage. If you will choose to invest in your marriage when things are good, there will be less bad times. Make investments like ... 
* Go on weekly dates.
* Go to a marriage retreat, conference or seminar together.
* Go for walks together.
* Take a trip together.
* Read a book together.
* Spend 20 minutes in conversation every day. 
God didn't create marriage so we could have a roommate, He created marriage so we could have a soulmate. Marriage is so much more than paying bills and raising kids together ... marriage is about being soulmates, not roommates. 
Make 2017 the year you invest in your marriage!

New Beginnings

I have some big news and an answer to prayer

On Monday ( one week ago) I received a call from Buick GMC, they were given my resume and were looking to have me come in for an interview, I went for the interview yesterday, they hired me on the spot for an appointment coordinator, Monday-Friday, 8-5 and more money than I make now plus a monthly bonus which he said it is the first time ever offered. I was so thankful for the 8-5 as I have been working night shifts and needed this situation to change.  

I am so thankful for this opportunity and thankful for all the prayers that have been prayed over this situation. It has been a long time in coming, this is my career field, this is what I did for 5 years in NL and to see God work this out for me this way just blows me away because when I came for the interview, the manager is like I have no idea where this resume came from ( well I do ;) ) God is just that good right. 

I am so thankful, I just can't stop thanking him.  I now feel like a normal person with a normal job  ;) 

So they wanted me to start on Wednesday ( last week), so I worked there from 8 am - 12 noon, then I went to my other job from 12:30 pm to 9 pm= 13 hour days x 3 days = 39 hours worked in 3 days.... Yep I was tired, but it was so worth it. 

Thank you again for the prayers, I am so thankful.
