LIFE UPDATE & some encouragement.

Hello world! Gosh it’s been a while since I’ve written anything but I’m back and I’m feeling inspired. A little life update is our house that is being built is extremely close to being finished! We need a fence around the property, countertops, flooring and light fixtures! We have been living with Shane’s parents since May 15, 2017 & it has been SO great; his mom is like one of my closest friends now and I love it. It has been amazing but we are SO excited for our new home. I’ve been planning and getting everything ready to move in. I’ve picked up a new gardening hobby so I plan on doing blogs about that soon so I can share everything I’ve learned. I’m SO excited for the content I’ll be able to create in our new space; there is so much room for creativity. My time has been full of photography & I LOVE it. Shane has been working his butt off and I couldn't be more proud. I've never seen someone work as hard as he works. I love this post-grad life where we can both work hard and save up our money. It was tough for me to transition out of school life into work life at first but thanks to God & friends talking me through my feelings I feel really good now! The future is so bright and this is such a rad time to prepare. Emy (our pup) is doing really good as well; I can't wait for her to have a little backyard to call her own although I know she is going to miss my in-laws house so much. I think that’s everything I wanted to catch up on so now I’ll write out a little about what God has been teaching me lately:)

Our life is full of transitions, everything is always changing and sometimes change is hard. We get so used to things being a certain way that it feels uncomfortable if anything seems different. I want to be a person that doesn’t fear change; I want to be a person who isn't afraid of transitions but I’m just a human. I know that I need God in every stage of life and I know I can’t do it on my own and I’m so thankful to have a God who works with me through change. God will prepare you for life change before you are even aware that a transition is coming. He takes care of His children so as long as you are following after Him you don’t have to worry. Change is good and it might be exactly what you need right now. Don’t be afraid of it but if you are having a hard time adjusting talk to God, read His word, and talk to other people around you who love God and who love you. The number one thing to do is to keep your priorities in order; Love God & Love others. 

Thank you so much for reading through all these thoughts that are in my brain! 

Love, Kristen LemMon
