Something i’m learning…
Most things in life are a process.
Some things aren’t: jumping into a pool, screaming, tripping over steps, having the urge to squeeze a fluffy animal…those things don’t require a process.
Most everything else does.
. . .
I started working on my August meal plan yesterday…and it is hard.
I’ve never actually sat down and planned out an entire month’s worth of meals complete with recipes, ingredient lists, and what i’ll be eating each week. I’m hoping to add to that weekly list my exercise routine as well as Scripture memorization to help keep me motivated and accountable.
So why am i doing a meal plan for august?
Well, my girlfriends and I decided that we would make a “No fast-food August pact”.
We are going to donate our money that we would normally spend eating out to a local charity.
We will take the amount we’ve spent over the month of July (fast food AND restaurants) and use that to budget our individual donations for August.
Have you ever sat down and actually looked at how much money you spend eating out within a month?! It will make your jaw hit the floor.
So, once i get my binder made up would anyone be interested in seeing it?!
I’m not promising it’s going to be amazing, but hey you never know right?! haha just kidding.
. . .
I’m also learning how being a home owner and getting things fixed is a SLOW process.
Currently i’m having to get my roof replaced, replace the kitchen floors, and get a new oven. Why? Because all are rotting, leaking, and broken. As well as the stone walls in both showers are peeling off the walls so they have to be re-glued and re-caulked; both of which i know NOTHING about but i’m thankful to have family to help show me the ropes.
Yup so i will be absolutely broke in the next few months, but at least i am thankful to have a roof over my head and food in my pantry…it’s humbling.
So many of us have SO MUCH and yet we continue to WANT so much.
I think we’ve forgotten the difference between a need and a want, don’t you?
. . .
So those are just some of my thoughts and daily musings going on in my head.
If you would, please lift up my dear friend Stacy this morning; she is having her gallbladder removed today at one.

What have you found is a process in your life?
