"Fret Not"

This has become my new motto. *Edit*: We are still going to do the house buying hunt. The more we look at renting, the more it seems it would be just as good for us in our situation to buy. So we will keep going and along with my new motto, I will not mention it again until whatever DOES happen, has happened already. I sure hope to be out of here before Christmas! We will have to see how things work out in our favor. As I am working through this, I read a really great talk by Elder Joseph B. Wirthlin about prayer and in the talk he says this:

"Fret not" is the first step. To Fret means to worry or to brood about something. The first thing we must do is to stop worrying. When we worry about the future, we create unhappiness in the present. Righteous concern may lead us to take appropriate action, but worrying about things we cannot control can paralyze and demoralize us. Instead of worrying, focus on all that you can, and then leave the worrying to your Heavenly Father. If your heart is right with Him, He will take care of the worry and fear."

Therefore, my motto is to "fret not". It will work out when it works out. Until then, wanna see what made me happy today? My awesome friend has an aunt who was selling tons of duplicate scrapbooking stickers for $1! Not $5 like normal, but $1! I was surprised at my discipline in only spending $21, but I do have kids to outfit for the winter and I will have THAT fun update when it comes! Here is just one of the kinds I got for- you guessed it ONE DOLLAR!

Yeah, fret not seems like a great motto! I am so jealous about the scrapbook stuff. I will keep my fingers crossed that the housing market will turn around
