How neat to watch Carter play. What an awesome Creator we have!

Thankful Thursdays

I am so thankful today for the fact that I am so rich. Yes, that's right. I'm rich. And it's the greatest thing ever.

Am I rich by the world's standards? Probably not. We drive a car that is 10 years old and one that is 12 years old (we like our cars and they're both payed off!), our kids share a bedroom (and love it!), and we mostly eat at home.

But I am rich. Why? I have a husband who I love and he loves me no matter what and cares for me and our children. I have an almost 3-year old daughter who is a joy. She loves to talk, sing, and dance and is so happy! She wants to be a Mommy when she grows up. I have a 5-month old son who loves to smile, laugh, and give hugs. Really, he does hug us! It's great. We have a wonderful time together as a family. I am also blesssed by our decision and desire for me to be home with the kids, raising them to love the Lord, even if that means we don't have the newest cars and the biggest house. That's okay, because these things make me rich, and I wouldn't trade it for anything.

Proverbs 10:22
"The blessing of the Lord makes one rich, and He adds no sorrow with it."

Monday Meals
So, I usually plan my dinners out for a two week time period to help me keep budget and be more productive with my time at the grocery store. I don't always follow the plan exactly, but at least I have what I need for two weeks of inexpensive, tasty meals. I thought I would post what our plans are on a weekly basis, not because I know of any one is who interested, but because I thought it would help keep me accountable and keep us from spending money eating out! So here goes...

Monday: Tacos
(I usually make a pound of meat at a time and freeze it in 1/2 pound servings.)
Tuesday: Spaghetti and Meatballs
(I made a super easy big batch of meatballs and froze them.)
Wednesday: Dinner at Church
Thursday: Pot Roast
Friday: Dinner for Ten
(10 youth will be coming to our house for dinner)
Saturday: Grilled Pork Chops
Sunday: Chicken in the Crockpot
