I was browsing through Amazon and came across the title of a book called Renovation of the Heart by Dallas Willard. The reviews were very strong for the book and there were 65 of them. Seems like it was written to help you through exactly what it says...renovation of your heart as you find what is truly in line with where you should be with God.

Definition for renovation:
|Breakfast Room at our Lake House|
Thankfully living there was a joy and a time in our lives we will celebrate and remember, but the selling was a total demolition of our retirement plans. Yet, was it part of His Plan?
How often do we have to renovate 'ourselves' to get where we are renewed and restored? I found this one blog by Rick Warren called Renovation Begins with Demolition. It is a short but solid read.
During this time of Lent, you may have to go through a type of demolition of who you are and how you think and then slowly begin your renovation with the Carpenter, the Son of God. He will help you rebuild so you will be renewed and restored.
Words of my heart, Laurie
"For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart." Hebrews 4:12
Post Note: Our CPA held us to two years and not renovations at our lake house... I have exactly two weeks left to hit that two year mark...but for some reason it is no longer important. When you are at home in yourself, the things around you are not as urgent to change. Peace in the heart brings a smile. So did golden yellow paint in the kitchen. see picture above.
