Feeling Relaxed and Big Purchases

As you can tell by my blog, I have been have a rough time lately. I'm not sure I completely love my new job, I've been feeling really pressured and stressed (even though I didn't realize it at the time) and I am constantly thinking about bad things happening (such as bad health and such). So, I haven't been having the best last few weeks.

I have been praying about all of this and my worrying for awhile now. However, I still seem to have the anxiety and problems. Everyday I seem to feel a little bit more like myself, but then sometimes that slides away again. So, I continue to pray and ask for God to not let the devil put these toughts in my head.

Today, I took a walk at lunch. I went outside my office and there is a trail along the river for bikers, runners, walkers and I started walking. I've been trying to get outside every pretty day, but today I just started walking. I stopped and talked with God and to be honest, I feel much more relaxed right now.

Thank you God for granting me some peace! I pray that you watch over me and everyone struggling with worry and anxiety and help us turn our worries to you and get past this. In Jesus' name, Amen.

On a lighter note, Mr. McB and I now both have higher paying permanent positions. This is exciting. So, to celebrate, we purchased:

A Sanyo 42" flat-screen LCD....blah, blah, blah...I don't know everything about it. I just know that it looks great in our living room and it is so nice to sit down and watch with the hubby. To make it even better, we weren't planning on this. We just happened to be at Wal*mart walking around when we came upon this beauty. It was marked down over $300-not a bad deal. So, we bit the bullet and got it.

We bit the bullet and bought a new tv awhile back too...and we love it! We watch a lot of movies though-so this was a good move for us! I struggle with worry and anxiety every day..I've been on meds for anxiety since I was sixteen! A lot of people don't understand it, but it is an every day struggle sometimes....praying for you!

Thank you for your sweet comments. Looks like you need a little pray and love your way too. I'll be praying peace for you!! Sometimes all we need is more peace in our lives to take away the worry. I know it is so much easier said then done, but keep your heart and mind focused on him. Keep doing what your doing, girl; because I can see you are chasing after God heart. :)

We just bought a LCD, too. It was the one thing that the hubs wanted to get after the wedding. Good luck with the job. :)

I'll keep you in my thoughts and prayers. I'm sorry you've been having a hard time as of late, but I assure you that it always gets better. My work situation hasn't been so great lately either.

On the positive side, I love your new TV! We have the same size, but plasma. We camped out on black friday 3 years ago and that is how we got it!
