Happy THursday!

Well, I spoke to my doctor today and my blood work is improving.  My cholestrol is down where it should be down and up where it should be up.  My fasting blood sugar was normal.  My A1C had gone down one decimal point.  So that isn't fabulous but it is definitely a step in the right direction.  I am so thrilled.  Now I want to search out some more fiber dense foods as that seems to be making a positive impact.  Hopefully, the weight will come off ~

Musings

As a mom to teens, life is never dull.  My husband is out of work but doing some side stuff.  Recently, God has given me peace with our financial situation.  I have begun to coupon.  I went to the grocery store yesterday and had $40 worth of savings!  I purchased several boxes of Fiber One bars to keep at my desk at the office.  Hopefully, having something sweet with a reasonable amount of calories will help.  I know that these bars have sugar but the fiber offsets it (somehow).

Today, I had a good day with food.  Resisted the temptation for unhealthy snacks.  I didn't even have a diet soda!

Discernment dilemma

My husband left his job in March.  I am a worrier.  These are not good combinations.  Our marriage had been going through a valley.  But...

God is good.

So things have begun to get better because we have looked to Him to fix things instead of each other.  We have both given up things that we want so that we can have what we need.  The latest is my husband's ATV.  So it sat in our garage in the suburbs of Atlanta and he would take it out and ride around the cul-de-sac to make sure the battery stayed charged.  We don't have a way to get it to the woods where it would used to its purpose.  So he sold it.  Three times.  And, so, we were able to pay our property tax bill for 2012.

What is God teaching me?  Am I supposed to be learning to be content with what I have?  What is my task now?  Is the Lord asking that I let go of whether my husband works or doesn't?  So...this is where I am today.  Trying to hear the Spirit.
