I have decided to try to use my blog to be more useful to you. I know most of you care at some level for me and my family, but you are way to busy to read each day about our activities (unless it’s very unique). I am going to attempt to provide either useful information or a format for dialogue (my Facebook posts have been the best for dialogue). This week, I want to give some simple observations on the economy, because our economy is something that effects each of us.
The greatest thing we will all get from this difficult financial time is wisdom. We will get wisdom only if we take time to think, reflect, learn and respond. I believe good times will come again, but I for one want to be much wiser when they do.
I am going to share some things I am learning during these times, but what about you? Beat me to the punch, and let me know what you are learning.

How encouraging to read about Cindy and Ryan’s experiences.
Ryan, I appreciate your perspective – this isn’t about a formula, but God still works supernaturally.
i am learning about God’s economy…and how it doesn’t make “economic” sense. Recently we made some conscious decisions about living more simply and being more generous. (Not so much as a reaction to the economy, but because of some inner feelings about my level of generosity) Since that time, we have found ourselves blessed in very big ways….raises, promotions, gifts, etc. I’m not trying to provide a formula here, I don’t think it always happens this way, but for us, the desire to be more generous resulted in us having more to be generous with. Doesn’t make sense, but it sure does work!
I am learning to trust God more, even when it looks like things are going to be worse. He always provides just what we need, never too much, never too little, & always on time, using different people & different means to do it. Praise Him! When I am faithful, He is faithful, & even when I’m not, He’s still faithful!
