2 New Jars-Ideas I Am Doing in 2016-Joy Jar and Penny Challenge


The first is the 365 day penny challenge.  This is the jar I made to use in this challenge this year.  The idea is on day 1 you put a penny in the jar, on day 2 you put 2 pennies and on the 365th day you put 365 pennies .  or $3.65 If you do this for the year you will have saved $667.95.  I am thinking Christmas shopping money and since you do so little each day that it won't be a problem for me.

This 2nd one is more for the whole family.  The idea behind it is this;anytime something makes you happy, gives you joy, something you want to remember you write it down on a piece of paper.  You put the paper in the jar and on New Year's Eve we will take them all out and remember the joys, good things of 2016.

Just 2 little ideas that may seem silly to some but another something we are trying to have more positivity and joy in this year. What are you doing if anything?

God bless,
Pat

Happy 16th Birthday Stephen Austin Love!

From this little baby born on April 7, 1995 to the wonderful young man you have became April 7, 2011 Moma and Daddy were so blessed the day you were born and grow more blessed with each passing year.  I pray God will richly bless you this year.  Let Him be your guide and follow Him and do His will and you will be right where you need to be.  We love you! God bless, Moma & Daddy

What If?

Saw this on a friends blog and had to share-Before you gripe about another petty something about your spouse or child-think how how you would feel if you woke up without them tomorrow. Man this hit me in the face and really made me really think! :(
     Then, I found this quote above about what if you woke up today with only what you thanked God for yesterday.  Who or what would you still have?  Would you have your spouse, your kids, your friends, your home, car, anything?  Again, this really made me think and I ashamed to say I am not sure I like my answers to the above questions.
     I cannot change the past as none of us can but I am going to really work on changing my answers and my life.  I know I need to really work on this but I am sharing it in the hope it might help others as well.  
God bless,
Pat


Does Anyone? And a giveaway!

Sometimes I wonder does anyone even read here.  I wonder if this blogs time has come and gone.  I sometimes think, well I will just write for me and use it like a diary of sorts.  I am just not sure what to do.  I really enjoy writing the blog but......
     I decided I am going to continue for at least the month of February and see what happens.  Since February is the month of love and my last name is "Love" and I am trying to decide if I love this blog anymore, I am going to to have a "Love" giveaway. All you have to do to be entered to have a chance to win is leave a comment on this post on my blog.  I will choose a winner from all the comments.


Until next time or until I choose a winner of the giveaway, Pat
