Oh, how I have been counting the hours until Friday...you have no idea.
Since taking Financial Peace University, I have been learning things about money and myself. Sometimes I'm just learning about money. Other lessons pierce my heart. Usually both happen, I feel smarter about financial decisions and more convicted about my own spending habits.

|My fridge and freezer are emptier than they've been in ages.|
But the Lord is doing a new thing and when the money for groceries ran out this week, I didn't run out to the store or farmer's market. What a battle with my flesh to not go and get some food staples! Instead we have been surviving on what we have in our cupboards, freezer and fridge. No one is starving. No one is deprived. I live with a sweet and generous husband who isn't a tyrant. If I wanted to go to the store and buy bananas, asparagus, flour, quinoa, sweet potatoes, firm tofu, carrots, kiwi, agave nectar, applesauce, butternut squash, rice milk, mozzarella cheese, onions, lettuce, cinnamon, milk, kale, aluminum foil, pineapples, wakame seaweed, etc., etc. (can you notice the zeal with which I wrote this list???) I could have done that.

|I have about a tablespoon of gas in my car. Not complaining, just waiting until FRIDAY!!!!|
