Thankful Thursday, Take 75

Thanking God this week for...
  • time with some friends on Sunday night and Wednesday
  • our new iPod
  • sunshine when the forecast called for a week of rain
  • this fantastic CD (really a 2-EP set)
  • finally coming in under budget this month for groceries
  • the glorious truth of unconditional election
  • John Piper's sermon series on Romans 9 that's helping me and Steve to understand and embrace this truth more deeply
  • faraway friends coming to visit this weekend!

I like that EP too. I am very impressed that you came in under budget for your groceries. I am having the hardest time...they have gone up so much. I am no longer shopping Vons online and have switched to Trader Joes almost exclusively except for the few things I can't get there. I have even stopped going to Target often. So all that to say you deserve a big hand because staying in the grocery budget is hard now

Groceries are ridiculous. Praise God for Aldi!

yeah, don't be too impressed--I'm under (barely) this month but it doesn't make up for being (a lot) over the last several months! we definitely need to re-evaluate our budget (and/or our eating habits) with grocery prices the way they are.

Ditto on the food budget (er, the overall budget). Can you please email me again? I can't access your email via the email link on your sidebar using this computer.
