Kroger Trip

Ah, it was nice to feel like I was back in the groove again.  I wish I could promise that updating this blog would be a daily thing but every time I say gets in the way.  My very, very part time job is no longer very, very part time.  I'm the office manager, regardless of how small the office is, when it's your job to keep everyone organized and on task it's a real job.  I've spent the last couple months pulling things together, cleaning things up, and getting things running as smoothly as possible around there.  I still haven't recovered from our Israel trip in the sense that I don't want to be here anymore.  I'm ready, right now, to move to Jerusalem to live until I die.  Will I ever be glad to be back here again?  :-)  Things at church have been great then really bad but now I think, and pray, it's on an uphill swing.  As long as everyone keeps their eyes on Jesus then no one will sink into the raging sea but continue to walk on the water!  That over simplifies things but it's the most I'll say about it on here.
I did go to Kroger today and I thought that it was a successful trip considering I haven't seriously done coupons since September.  We have been living off, for the most part, the stockpile I had created prior to going overseas!  What a blessing it has been to only have to run to the grocery store for fresh meat and produce!  It just goes to show how the Lord will bless when you use the money He gives you to glorify Him as much as possible.
