|Grocery shopping? Ugh! No thanks. You'll do what you can to avoid this chore. That's why I let hubby grocery shop even though he goes over-budget
Of course, you need to eat like everyone else - so you'll pick up something easy and convenient to tide you over.
If you had your way (or won the lottery), you wouldn't have to worry about groceries at all. You'd love to eat out for every meal. Well, we already pretty much do that!
Bible in a Year : Psalms 8990; Romans 14
You do not even know what will happen tomorrow. James 4:14 Ellen Langers 1975 study titled The Illusion of Control examined the level of influence we exert over lifes events. She found that we overestimate our degree of control in most situations. The study also demonstrated how reality nearly always shatters our illusion.
Langers conclusions are supported by experiments carried out by others since the study was published. However, James identified the phenomenon long before she named it. In James 4, he wrote, Now listen, you who say, Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money. Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes (vv. 1314).
Then James provides a cure for the delusion, pointing to the One whos in absolute control: Instead, you ought to say, If it is the Lords will, we will live and do this or that (v. 15). In these few verses, James summarized both a key failing of the human condition and its antidote.
May we understand that our fate doesnt rest in our own hands. Because God holds all things in His capable hands, we can trust His plans!
In what ways have you given in to the illusion that youre in control of your fate? How can you turn over your plans to God and leave your future in His hands?
Heavenly Father, I place all of my life in Your loving hands. Thank You for Your good plans for me.

Says I’m Walmart. But I never go to Walmart. Thanks for the entertainment.

But until then, you're happy to make to with a frozen pizza or some mac and cheese! Maybe even a banana if you're feeling healthy.
LOL, the only time I go to a 7-11 is to buy ice.
Like many on this thread...I’m 7-11.

I stick to my list, avoid pricey organic, shop early in the morning on the weekend and do my bulk shopping at the Walmart Market (not the big box Walmart). And the answer was Walmart.
I know huh! But since I let hubby shop, I steer clear of all of them. LOL!
Looks like none of us like to shop for groceries. LOL!
Mine said Walmart, but we don’t grocery shop at Walmart. We shop at Krogers, which wasn’t one of the answers.
I’m Trader Joe’s too.
Hi Luv. Sez here this week that I am a store in which I have not visited in about seven years. Maybe Two Buck Chuck needs a long-lost friend. :-)
You Are Trader Joes
You consider grocery shopping an adventure. You like to go out there and see what you can find.
You are definitely a foodie, but you keep to a budget. You want as many of the finer things as you can afford.
You have a taste for the exotic and novel. You love a new twist on an old favorite.
And while you aren’t a health nut, you prefer to go the more natural route. You love to eat well while still making healthy choices.
Lets see what I am.
Ill bet Im something cool.
You are an empty gumball machine
Its been one of those days.
Oooo...that’s pricey! LOL!
