Saw this in the sky moments after an F-5 tornado blew through the communities around us. There is total devastation around our friends, but this is a great reminder that God is still in control.

Extreme Couponing

Found this article about the new TLC show Extreme Couponing. It pretty much nails how I feel about the whole concept.

I've only watched one episode so far, but the couple featured uses a $5 0ff/1 Maalox (which costs $5.35 in store). Cool.. I was pleased with that.... until they got 35 stinkin' bottles. How in the world can a household of two people ever use 35 bottles of Maalox before they expire? Even if you only spend .35/bottle, how are you "saving" money on something that will expire before you can even begin to use it? I'm guessing the only way to use that much Maalox is by purchasing/eating all these prepackaged foods that should really only be eaten in moderation, rather than all the time because of the massive stockpiles.

Use some sense, folks. There are tons of great coupons each week, but if you're buying something because it's on sale and you've got coupons for it... and only because of those reasons, who cares? The amazing deal doesn't matter if the product ends up in the trash.

Music Monday-"I Need Thee (Hear My Cry)" - Live Album Recording

I fell in love with this song two years ago when I heard it for the first time. It was awesome to hear it again live! I'm telling you, I've lived every word of this song! My God has been there and been everything I need each and every time I need it. All glory to Him!
