Warning this has a religous aspect to it.

this last week DH and i watched sermon videos on margins, and having limits in our life. Limits in our time, professional, finicial, and some others. Basically the margins are, having time unscheduled, living below your means, knowning you have weakness and deligating thhose, ect. ect. ect.BTW, after starting this, wow, what a change already!!!

The on the finicial side of the house, the sermon said finances are one of the last places that they let God into in thier lives, and by this they mean in giving in offerings. When you give to do Gods work, God will guide you to that finicial margin in your own life. This I believe.

DH and I just recently upped what we give in the offering plate. and it is so true that God is guiding us in this finicial path.

In the past couple of weeks, we have been discussing joining the YMCA. We weren't sure where the money was going to come from, as we both want to continue to save and pay off the motorcycle asap. We had DD in gymnastics and dance class. Gymnastics got put on hold because of speech being so often, and my little 2 year old was just doing to much. Today we decided to drop dance class, which I'm kind of upset about. The structure is just a little bit much for her, and is having complete melt downs durning class. So now we have the money for our family membership to the YMCA! We weren't sure, but God showed us and it will be benificial the the entire family, not just the tot.
