Being Strong






That's the choice I have right now. Being strong. Maybe I didn't know how strong before, when we made the choice to move in with my in-laws, but I know now.

I love them. They are amazing.

Being a wife in someone else's house..not so amazing. Especially with Christmas approaching. I want to decorate my tree & put up my decorations. It's just hard.

And that's where I've been lately. Trying not to be glued to the computer all night and instead spend time with my hubby & his parents. I promise I'm not gone forever. Just long enough to get used to my new "situation."

So today, I pray that you all know just how strong you are when you are pushed to the limit.
Your strength will be incredible.
You'll get through it.

Just like I am.

What a great reminder in that picture. My link up was also on finding strength. I will pray for you in your situation. I can't imagine it's easy.

You are so right. Sometimes our only option is to just be strong. We've been living with my family for a few weeks while we get ready to move... I love them so much but it really IS hard being a wife in someone else's house! Love you and praying for you.

oh girl I can relate - the Lord has had us live with my in laws, AND with my parents over the last 8 years. while it was not the easiest thing (and I totally understand about not being in your own house - we were at my in laws over Christmas too), looking back, I am SO thankful for the time we had with them. like we truly cherish it now. we had no idea and could not see it at the time, but it was truly a season that the Lord blessed US with and ALSO blessed our parents with. Prayers for you for patience and grace! blessings today friend!
