We made it! A whole month! No restaurants or fast food.
I have been stretched in new ways, both spiritually and physically. I have come up with some inventive and yummy (and some not so yummy :-/ ) meals. I'm usually one to follow a recipe, but sometimes I was pressed for time to come up with something healthy and quick.
Spiritually, I have rejoiced, questioned, and had to resubmit to the Lord's will for our lives. I know that this is going to be our lives from now on.
Hubby and I pray and discuss what our next step is. We are continuing on the no restaurants/fast food. We will be treating restaurant meals the way we need to, special occasion only. And I mean super special! Most likely anniversary and that's it.
So far I have only shared with our close circle of friends this journey. Literally 4 people know the story and that's it. I wrestle with sharing with more people, but I don't want to come across as bragging or boasting our own successes. I want to highlight and raise my voice about the Lord's accomplishments in our lives. I feel like the Lord wants me to share, but am not comfortable with it. More on that next week. ;-)
