brain back into "home" mode. I feel like I forgot how to do things! We have a busy next few weeks coming up so yesterday I sat down and did our weekly menu and calendar, but also one for the rest of the month. I keep things written down in my planner, but that still in a suitcase somewhere. My folks left enough frozen meat in the freezer and fruit and veggies in my fridge that I don't have to buy any major groceries this week. I did pick up some bread, milk, and eggs for this week though.
Tuesday- Chicken Pot Pie
Thursday- Sausage and cheese omlettes
Friday- Shepherds Pie
Saturday- eating out
Sunday- Crockpot BBQ chicken
In the tone of honesty that I value on this blog, I decided to share this with you guys. Some of you know me personally and would probably eventually ask me where the truck was anyways, but those of you that don't personally know me, I want you to know that this is real life. Stuff happens. We get behind on our bills. We struggle. Being a Christian doesn't mean that things aren't hard. Could we have managed our money better? Yes, definitely. Aaron and I made A LOT of mistakes early on in our marriage and now we're paying for them. Hindsight is always 20/20. I've done my fair share of "rescue praying" but there are consequences to every action.
But, with that being said, realize that everyone you come into contact with has things happening in thier life that you know nothing about. Our financial struggles have taught me that you just never know. The mom's I see in Target that I assume are so put together could be the complete opposite. I've tried to live in a way that no one would assume things really were the way they were. If there was anything I learned this last week in Canada, it's that if you're going to live Christlike, then you MUST see people the way God sees them. If you don't, then you're opinion/judgement/perception of them is jaded by your own sinful assumptions.
