Bad Week in the News - Good Week for Me

I have been working so hard on finishing the entryway and to have it finally done feels good.  I can cross something off my to do list.  While I have been painting I have been listening to the news.  So much is happening all around the world and I find myself drawn to the latest news.  There is more and more to pray about. 

Yesterday I stopped by the grocery store where I purchased the $1.99 a lb. butter last week.  Yesterday it was knocked down to 99 cents since it was now 2 days away from the sell by date.  They had quite a bit left.  I bought another 15 lbs. for my freezer.  I have plenty of butter.

Tonight it was just my husband and me for supper so I fixed salmon, whole grain rice mixture, broccoli and a tossed salad.  I baked a salmon fillet with a little bit of oil brushed on it, sprinkled it with a Mrs. Dash mixture and baked it for 14 minutes.  It was moist and flaky and delicious.  I also poured a little bit of low fat italian dressing on the salmon for a little more flavor.  My husband loves fish and so do I.  Our son does not like fish at all so when he is gone for supper, it is fish night. 

Tomorrow I will take a look at the receipts to see where I am on the No Spend Month.  I have done pretty good this week.  Also I need to catch up on my blog reading and I will spend some time trying to get the gold paint off of my finger nails!!!

I felt completely overwhelmed on the day of the New Zealand earthquake, which was the main news topic on the same day as trouble blew up in Libya.

Where is ths leading too and when will it end, I was in tears, after listening to the news in my car on the way home from work.???

Unfortunately we cannot control natural disasters or uprisings in other countries. We can pray for these people and look for opportunities to help those around us in need.

As to where is this leading and when will it end ... well I don't have an answer but I will be addressing this in a post later today.
