In all thy ways acknowledge him,
and he shall direct thy paths.
I'm enjoying how my efforts in grocery budgeting are blessing us to have a positive trajectory in food storage. By buying 6 jars of peanut butter from Walmart, and other bulk purchases of best price staples, we have an abundance of what we need. We are not very adventurous with condiments. We only need ranch, ketchup, mustard, mayo and bbq. Whenever I buy other condiments, they just sit in the door unused.
M and I are doing personal progress and the positive effect of this is that we have a very positive activity to do together. I'm working on noticing positive traits in others and making our home more peaceful. I can't really handle thinking about more than one behavior goal at a time. But I do love how just having a goal to forgive for 2 weeks can be on my thoughts and change my actions.
I'm encouraging M to take credit for good things she is already doing, like singing in the choir, participating in a book club and playing the piano. Yes, those were things we were already going to do, but we can invite the lord into our endeavors, and receive blessings of inspiration.
There are some goals like "Make something to display in your home" and I have no patience for those goals. My sister N did actually make a beautiful banner with the temple, and other YW symbols done in fabric, that was worthy of being displayed in a home. I'll have to show M some of those examples.
