I was working on a project last night, while listening to Pastor Rick Warren’s podcast about a balanced life. He mentioned about “Enjoying the moment” “Enjoying the NOW” instead of enjoying life when our goals are accomplished already.
I can still recall that day that My husband and I are eating the simplest meal we had in our table- I can’t remember how it taste like, but what I can recall was our Joy in midst of that situation. I can still remember the words my husband told me “This too shall pass, season lang ‘to”
Instead of waiting for things to be back into normal, I am thankful that we chose Joy and thankfulness during those low times in our early parenting life.
Let me share with you some of the things I believe we should consider when we want to be contented in our current situations in life.
- Never Compare – Comparison is the thief of Joy as they say.
It’s our Little Home’s 5th anniversary. Yehey!
We are so grateful for the little shelter that God has given us to start our small family.
This little home witnessed our life without a baby, our first Christmas as family, Zee’s first walk, our laughters, dramas in life and thankful no action scenes so far! Haha..
We’re excited to create more memories in this home while praying and waiting for our dream house in God’s perfect time (if God’s will).
What we’re thankful about living in a small space in
Rural (ok, not-so-Rural Cavite) :
Affordable – yes, our home is still under mortgaged payable upto 186930272 of years ? which is equivalent to our monthly rent in Las Pinas City when we’re just newly weds. Good deal right? We call it God’s grace and favor especially both my husband and I are freelancers/small business owners our monthly income is project-based.
Low Cost of Living – Food is cheaper here, during busy days, we can go to the nearest Talipapa in our place. Our go-to lunch meal is “tortang talong” PHP 15 for the eggplant +PHP 24 for the eggs. Super budget friendly plus a healthy meal.
