Letting go!

Good morning everyone!
Last night was an interesting night around here. First and foremost, let me start by saying that I got everything that I wanted to get done yesterday accomplished.
On my way home from the grocery store I stopped and picked up our mail. When I looked inside I saw two identical letters that held the answer to a financial question that we have been waiting for. I wanted to open the letters right then and there. But, decided to get back to our apartment, put away the few things I bought and then open the letters. I couldn't avoid them any longer, I sat down and opened the letter addressed to me. I could hardly focus, I had to make myself read and reread the letter. I quickly ripped open the letter that had Tim's name on it to make sure it said the same thing, it did. What a blessing, our prayers had been answered and we were going to be able to move forward with out this looming over us. 
These two letters taught me a lesson yesterday. A lesson that my husband has been trying to teach me for quite some time, the power of letting go. For those of you who know me, you know that I always have a plan and I like things to go according to that plan, or at least I used to. Tim has helped me to realize that everything is "just right" even when it's not. You have to, "Go with the flow," is a sentence I used to hear often. When we sent off the information for those letters we prayed that it would be taken care of. That was it, it was out of our heads and out of our hands. There was nothing else we could do, so why worry about it. In being able to let go and give this up to God we were able to enjoy ourselves and receive an answer that is a big positive for us. 
Letting go, some say that it's easier said than done. I urge you all to let go. Know that there is always a bright side and that when something is out of your control there is no use in waisting your time worrying about it. 
I was up most of the night feeling our sweet baby as it pretended that I was a punching bag. Can't complain, feeling our baby move is one of the greatest pleasures I have ever known. Plus, when it moves, I'm not worried about it not moving! That being said, I'm a bit sleepy today but we are notorious for lazy Sunday's so it all works out. We are going to church today, we absolutely love Red Rocks Community Church. After church we will stop by and pick up a Sunday paper, have to clip coupons you know! On the menu for tonight is lasagna, cesar salad and garlic bread, this a favorite around here. I'm a big fan because it makes for a few nights of left overs. Make sure to jump over to the "Menu" tab for the recipe.
Thanks for stopping by!
