How Good is God/My Beautiful Son!

This isn't a boo-hoo story, but a public Thank You to God.

This has been the "tightest" fortnight for us financially that we have ever had. It's not that bigger deal, we are very fortunate and have another paycheque coming in next week, but it just means we have to stick to what's in the pantry and the odd loaf of bread. It has been a little stressful, but we are a lot better off than many people in our town, let alone country.

Sean was playing with my travel coin purse this morning. When I got him out of the car at daycare I found it had just over $4 in it! I was able to get more than just the bread that I had planned!

Praise God – I knew He wouldn’t let me down, and he sent such a smiley little messenger!

What's good for you...

How many times have we been told to do something because it's good for us? Reading Dr Vale's blog yesterday ( reminded me of things we do because of habit, or in the case of children, because we are told we must.

Lately Sean and I have been cleaning our teeth together in the morning. I take my part of this task for granted, after all I have been cleaning my own teeth for near on 30 years. For Sean it is a new habit. I didn't realise how much he has taken note until he produced his toothbrush (with "paste") mid afternoon yesterday.

Reading Dr Vale's blog made me ponder on our habits - however simple, like the soap we use. It also made me think about those things that we don't really notice, but are part of our habits (ie we file them under "routine"). Coffee, email reading, etc make up part of my mornings. How often are our routines (especially if you are house-based) really productive? I will tell you after my 2nd cup of coffee...
