Thankful Thursday

I am thankful that I was so successful last month with my 3 in 30. It was the first time I had done something like that and I managed to it. Even though I had a bit of a kink in it I managed to rally and get caught back up. In fact I am even doing better than I the goals I made for myself. So for this month I decided to do the 3 in 30 again.



1. Keep reading my Bible in 90 days.
I am not in Job and plan to stay on track with this. It has been inspirational for me and I find myself changing more and more everyday for the positive. I am working on making my life reflect Him more and more.

2. Stay with the plan to remain frugal and help pay off our debt.
I did up our monthly menu plan yesterday and it feels great to know I have plans on what to make for supper. That I will not be struggling to figure something at 4:30 and end up either making garbage or take out. Tonight we had bbq'ed salmon, rice and spinach salad. So yummy. Really easy, and made a great healthy meal that I did not have to struggle with deciding what to make.

3.Do some sewing.
I want to do some sewing and quilting. I love to sew and when we were first married with a couple of young ones I sewed quite a bit. I sewed lots of our clothing and some blankets for the boys, tableclothes, etc.. Although I have never attempted to actually make a quilt piece by piece before so looking forward to that. Also I have some baby gifts to give so I figure with my frugal plan combined with my sewing desire I decided to make some baby quilts. I would also like to make some little girl aprons and some homemade napkins.

I am thankful for the desire that God is putting in me to live more to His Word.
I am thankful that my husband is being supportive and loving me with my decisions.
I am thankful that my daughter and I are working on homeschooling. It is not easy but I truely believe that it will be worth it.
