This young man shold be commended!

He had a hard choice here but he made the right decision. Co-ed wrestling is becoming more and more popular. Should this be allowed at all?

coffee with a friend

Today I had coffee with a friend and it made my day. I was feeling down. I was in the dumps. Then a wonderful christian friend came over. Sometimes all we need is fellowship. Thank you God for sending me a friend!

cost of food

Have you ever looked at the USDA website to find what the "cost of food" in your area is? I have looked at the thrifty alaska plan and I definitely go over it. I would like to see how close I can get to their estimated cost.
Do you think your family is on the thrifty or moderate plan? What do you think of their free cookbook? Some of these things I already do. I do use powdered milk. I do buy fruit and vegetables in season. I do buy economy amounts if possible. I wonder if the plan for Alaska is rural or urban. That would make a difference.

New Years Prayer

Guess what? My resolutionis to work much more on my blog. To learn more about frugal living and to offer tips and educate as I learn as well.
Currently I am planning on spending Sabbath enjoying doing just that. I am looking forward to it in fact.
Here is a New Years Prayer I came across:

A New Year Prayer

Holy Father,

God of our yesterdays, our today, and our tomorrows.

We praise You for Your unequaled greatness.

Thank You for the year behind us and for the year ahead.

Help us in Your new year, Father, to fret less and laugh more.

To teach our children to laugh by laughing with them.

To teach others to love by loving them.

Knowing, when Love came to the stable in Bethlehem, He came for us.

So that Love could be with us, and we could know You.

That we could share Love with others.

Help us, Father, to hear Your love song in every sunrise,

in the chriping of sparrows in our backyards,

in the stories of our old folks, and the fantasies of our children.

Help us to stop and listen to Your love songs,

so that we may know You better and better.

We rejoice in the world You loved into being.

Thank You for another new year and for new chances every day.

We pray for peace, for light, and for hope, that we might spread them to others.

Forgive us for falling short this past year.

We leave the irreparable past in your hands, and step out into the unknown new year knowing You will go with us.

We accept Your gift of a new year and we rejoice in what's ahead, depending on You to help us do exactly what You want..

I say it again, we rejoice!

In Jesus name,
