I am a stay at home mom who is fed up with spending a large portion of income on grocery bills. It is my job, according to God, to be a good help mate for my husband. I am trying to live up to my job description. I am starting a journey into the grocery coupon world and invite you to come with me. I have never used coupons for grocery shopping and as of January 1st 2008 I am diving in. I will be using http://www.thegrocerygame/ , http://www.moneysavingmom.com and the http://www.couponmom.com/ website to guide me on how to save money. I am going to treat this adventure as a part time job and put in the hours necessary to make it work. I am excited and nervous to get started.

Getting a little political

Emails have been swirling, phones have been ringing and people have been asking or trying to tell me who to vote for. Enough already, I say. My view of politics does not focus around issues such as abortion or gay marriage. When I think of America and the political system I try and remember why this country was founded in the first place. The pilgrims first came here get get away from Catholicism that had gone corrupt. They wanted to worship freely without persecution. I get it I am right there with that. Here is where I differ. There is a good reason for a division in religion and education. I am not going to pass laws to force people to believe my religion or my beliefs. Just because I live in a country where certain acts are legal and/or illegal I do not have to agree with these acts nor do I have to participate in these acts. Here is my burning question. If we pass laws making things we believe in illegal does that mean all the people doing the illegal act is going to stop? Obviously not! If we are in the mind set to pass laws to get people to stop doing illegal activities then drug use and/or addiction would not be an issue in this country.

I received an email today that totally hit my feelings on politics and religion. Here it is

Top 10 Predictions No Matter Who Wins the Election
1. The Bible will still have all the answers.
2. Prayer will still work.
3. The Holy Spirit will still move.
4. God will still inhabit the praises of His people.
5. There will still be God-anointed preaching.
6. There will still be singing of praise to God.
7. God will still pour out blessings upon His people.
8. There will still be room at the Cross!
9. Jesus will still love you.
10. Jesus will still save the lost when they come to Him.

O.k. rant over moving on.

Thanks to Grace for the email.

good reminder.God is in control.
and gov't should not have to make laws on certain things like you mentioned, unfortunately our society has gotten away from the word of God and what he says on those things. So, will God continue to bless a country that daily turns its back on Him and ignores what he says is wrong in his word?
