Thanks Jeremy!

My sweet husband sent out this quote I thought it was excellent.

God is not who you think He is; He is who He says He is.

Staying on Course

I loved this post about settling into a routine and just keeping on with the business of school. It is tempting to always be looking for something better, newer, more fun, easier, or faster. But, sometimes it is nice to just get down to business and do what you are doing. Thanks for the link, Angie!

You Can't Do It All

Kendra re-posted this terrific message that her husband wrote her a while back. It was really encouraging and I wanted to pass it along! Find it here.

The Cooking Tip That Changed My Life

Well, it's not really that dramatic, but I want to share it with you. Tricia mentioned that she does "Big Shop Cooking." The part that I have latched onto is buying a huge amount of ground beef and putting it in the crock pot as soon as I get home. I buy 10 pounds at Sam's, put half in the crock pot, turn it on high and add salt, pepper, and onion powder. I stir it now and then, keeping an eye on it. I usually get 80/20 so there is enough grease to keep it moist. Then when it is done I bag it up (using a slotted spoon to get it out of the grease) and freeze it. I just did 5 pounds tonight and now it is ready for a quick evening meal. I love that!
