“Trust whatever He has for you. It will be better than anything you can plan for yourself.”
— Francis Chan (Crazy Love)

I’m grateful to know this. I haven’t read this book. Though, now I think I’d like to! Anyone out there read this book? Crazy Love: Overwhelmed by a Relentless God (This is the full title.) I’d like to know what you thought about it!

Psalm 143
New Living Translation (NLT)

A psalm of David.

1 Hear my prayer, O Lord;
listen to my plea!
Answer me because you are faithful and righteous.
2 Don’t put your servant on trial,
for no one is innocent before you.
3 My enemy has chased me.
He has knocked me to the ground
and forces me to live in darkness like those in the grave.
4 I am losing all hope;
I am paralyzed with fear.
5 I remember the days of old.
I ponder all your great works
and think about what you have done.
6 I lift my hands to you in prayer.
I thirst for you as parched land thirsts for rain. Interlude
7 Come quickly, Lord, and answer me,
for my depression deepens.
Don’t turn away from me,
or I will die.
8 Let me hear of your unfailing love each morning,
for I am trusting you.
Show me where to walk,
for I give myself to you.
9 Rescue me from my enemies, Lord;
I run to you to hide me.
10 Teach me to do your will,
for you are my God.
May your gracious Spirit lead me forward
on a firm footing.
11 For the glory of your name, O Lord, preserve my life.
Because of your faithfulness, bring me out of this distress.
12 In your unfailing love, silence all my enemies
and destroy all my foes,
for I am your servant.

Who knew planning the vacation of a families dreams could be so stressful? When you go on a vacation that you have never had before, or may not get to do again, you tend to want to squeeze all of the important stuff in. I don’t think we will get to this point. I have planned as much as I possibly can. Now, I am so anxious about it all. It has gotten to the point that I think I am going to be happy when it is over! We are all SO excited. But, It’s been about a year of saving and planning for this. It will be nice to have control over our finances again, and not have to worry about whether that will leave us with enough money for food and the occasional souvenir there. Continue reading


Weight Watcher cheese DEAL!!

weightwatcherwedges

I had never used this cheese before starting on the Trim Healthy Mama plan. But we use it to spread on toast or a few crackers. We also make broccoli and cheese with it! It is kind of pricey, $1.98 for 6 small wedges. But with the deal I pulled off yesterday made them roughly half price.

So what is the big deal? Well, I found on The Krazy Coupon Lady website a plethora of weight watcher coupons. If you print out these:
$1.00 off Any weight watchers cheese or cream cheese product (will take you to the specific coupons.com coupon page) (print it twice!)
$0.75 off $5 weight watcher products (I tried to get you directly to the coupon but it wouldn’t let me) I only had printed one of these. Wish I’d thought to print this one twice!

I picked up three packages of the Weight Watcher cheese wedges at Walmart. At this particular walmart, the cheese is $1.98 per package. This brought the total to equal $5.94. Used my $0.75 off $5 coupon FIRST! (If you do it after the other coupons, the register will see that your total of weight watcher products is now below $5) This brings the total for all three to $5.19. Then, the $1 off any cheese for the two packages. Bringing your total to $3.19. Divide that by three, readers!! Yay! This makes them about $1.06 each. Super! I wish it would have let me print just one more $1 off coupon. they would’ve been under a buck then! haha! Enjoy!
