"Take a lesson from the ants, you lazy fellow. Learn from their ways and be wise! For though they have no king to make them work, yet they labor hard all summer,
gathering food for the winter."
Busy, busy times. Putting up food for the winter, catching up on outdoor chores before it is too cold to be outside,
Times are hard for alot of people right now. We are all having to stretch our dollars and pinch our pennies. I am so glad I can be home to work on those very things. It takes more "home time" on my part. Doing things like baking our bread, making good meals that may take just a little more time.....keeping our home bright and cheery and comfortable.
It is a great time of year to eat more soup...that is a good dollar stretcher. Buying basic things in bulk or through a food co-op saves money, things like flour, rice, sugar....Knowing ahead what we are eating also saves me time and money of last minute purchases.
Being content and happy is a big part of my family being comfortable, especially my husband. Keeping him well fed and making our home a place of retreat for him helps him to not worry about us and
wishing he could do more.
What message are you sending your family and husbands today?? Trust God and lean on Him and do your best with what you have........send a message of Love, Contenment and Gratefulness!
Thank God for His provision
and what we do have!!
