Well…I hope your 2018 has started out well. Mine was uneventful I guess. New Year’s Eve found me in bed and asleep by 10:30. Hey! Don’t mock me! That is one hour later than normal. 🙂 🙂  I knew I didn’t have to get up at my normal 3:45 time so I actually stayed up to read some. But alas! I am not an all-nighter. Never have been…never will be (unless pressed). In fact, I’m not even a late-nighter. My girls laugh at me. Okay…Tami does. I’d say, “She’s a school teacher what does she know?” but I’d get thumped pretty good by all the teachers (and her). Seriously, I have never been a late night person except on rare occasions. Getting older hasn’t changed that one bit…except going to bed earlier.

Speaking of Tami…she is moving out this weekend into her own apartment. 2 1/2 years ago she moved back to be closer to us and Janna (really Braden but same family). 🙂  But she took a very significant pay cut to do so. She moved in with us until she could sort some things out, plus find a place she could afford. They are distant in Bloomington and Elletsville, as well as few and far between in Spencer. But thanks to the generosity of a couple who built their own house, they are renting Tami their old apartment. It has some big rooms, nostalgic points (it is a renovated apartment in “downtown” Spencer). Downside? A million steps to get there. But I’m happy for her. She will have her own place, a place to call her own. And space she doesn’t have at our house.

Teaser: “I don’t have to have it all figured out. He does. There is no way for me to know all that will happen anyway, so why work myself up over that? Why worry and be fearful over what I cannot control? I cannot understand it all so why spend my days and valuable time in fear and misery because I don’t and won’t? No…I need to rest in His perfect, sovereign knowledge.” For more check out my other blog here.

Have a good day my friends. Here it is -9. So stay warm also.

  1. So happy for Tami, Bill! It’s great she can finally have her own space and place. Now off I go to visit your new blog!

    Always good when adult children are able to be independent from us. I think it will be us moving out instead of our son and family since we rent a house together. It works well since we usually travel a lot and they are always with friends and we have seperate living quarters. But, we want them to buy their own house someday and then we probably will not live with them. It’s so costly out here in southern Ca , need to move somewhere else when we retire if we ever do..I hate to tell you this but it was a wonderful 77 today…beautiful…but a few more months and you will be sweating in that Ind humidity.

    What a blessing to see good things happen for our children. God does provide.

      i agree Floyd. I’m sure you have the same idea for your children as I have for Tami: she needs this plus in her life. I’m thrilled for her. And yes, he does provide.

    Well, my hat’s off to you with 2 blog’s going, Bill! Will you keep this one going …


    • cycleguy says:

      Yes I plan to keep this one going Linda. The other one is more of a devotional one based on my thoughts on New Morning Mercies. Hope you will join in. As for this one, it will continue to be my “flagship” one.
