have you ever been faced with a decision which should make perfect sense, but for some reason you just get a feeling that you can't ignore which says you should reconsider?

josh and i had that experience recently and i'm so grateful that Heavenly Father lets us go through these experiences to help us learn to trust him.

it's a long story and i'll spare most details, but basically we had the opportunity to re-finance our home loan to an INCREDIBLY low apr at NO COST to us. we had a lot of questions and felt like the whole process over the last month had been very rushed and, frankly, too good to be true. the situation has definitely helped us rely on the spirit's promptings. i'm thankful that sometimes the promptings are to take a step back and pause to think things through and reason things out. sometimes even after reasoning, it still doesn't feel right. don't always know why... and don't need to. "i know that [God] loveth his children, neverthless i do not know the meaning of all things" 1Ne 11:17.

anyhoo, it ended up that our re-fi actually worked out great and we feel so blessed that the opportunity came our way to lighten the financial burden. more importantly, though, we feel blessed to have the Holy Ghost and a Father in Heaven who is always waiting to teach us when we are listening.
