I did not write a single blog entry in 2016.  You could say I was speechless.  It was a year of learning hard things.  I did not feel qualified to say anything about anything.  But now I am writing again, for me, for fun.

Pretty much all of last year was taken up with us moving across the country, from Illinois--where we had lived our whole lives--to Texas.  It took all year because there were job interviews (for Ron), visits, and waiting for the right time for Ron to resign from his old job.  Then there was getting the house ready, selling it, trying to find somewhere to live, actually moving--at first to temporary housing--and then finally to the new house.

But then it turned into a nightmare as the house we bought needed a lot of work, something we had not counted on.  So basically we have spent every spare minute, dollar, and bit of energy since then dealing with fixing up the place. Not what we had planned.  So that was 2016.

I am ready for a new year.  And I have learned something important.  I have to not care about money anymore.

Labor not to be rich: cease from thine own wisdom. --Proverbs 23:4

But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition.  --1Timothy 6:9

Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.  --Proverbs 3:5-6
