Coupon Update

Bad News....there will be NO coupon inserts this Sunday. I kinda expected it and will take the extra time to clean out expired coupons and check out possible deals for those that will expire 12/31 (there's only a TON of those)!!!!

An Interesting Conversation

When I was standing in line at Meijers, the lady behind me was commenting on my coupon organizer. We had a lot of time to chat, as the line was long and Meijers was slow. She said she could NEVER do all that. I reassured her that it was not a talent, just a desire to save money. She understood once I said I had four kids. Interestingly though, she commented that I was probably buying things we wouldn't eat. Looking at my groceries of frozen veggies, waffles, cereal, and salad dressing, I replied that I don't buy things that we won't eat unless I give it away. It just makes sense!!
She next proceeded to tell the people waiting behind her in the line to look at this lady up here with all these coupons!! And of course, she was very curious as I was being checked out as to my savings. The last thing I heard her say was, "And she bought a coat too for someone!!" I think I floored her, but most importantly I hope I helped her to see that saving is for everyone. It just takes time and organization.
Before I left, the cashier apologized for being so slow. "This is my second day. I hope you have items for all these coupons, because I don't have time to check. I just hope your honest or I could get fired." I looked her right in the eyes and replied, "The Lord would not bless if I tried to do something dishonest."
That must have appeased her.
I left the store hoping that in some way I had influenced two persons for Jesus. Isn't that what we are called to do.

Colossians 3:17 "And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him."

Jesus is the Reason

This is a busy time of the year, yes. But, remember to keep the focus on the important things. It's easy to be so overwhelmed and busy with shopping, baking, and the like that we fail to remember the real reason for the season...Jesus. The Babe born in Bethlehem is why we celebrate!! Take time to remember. Read the Christmas story found in the second chapter of Luke. Keep Christ in Christmas for without Him, there would be no Christmas.
