My plans......... That about sums it up. We are nearing the end of the school year (last day for Riley is next Wed.) and life for the summer is just starting to rev up! We have LOTS planned for our summer: our church family camp, Vacation Bible School, family vacation, doing a preschool dvd/homeschool with the three older kids, and LOTS of walks, picnics, and days at the park are hopefully ahead too!

So - here's the deal: Total $avings is taking a summer break! Mr. T.$. and I have talked about this and we think I'd better just pause on the blog until next fall. By then our two oldest will be in school and I'll have time to blog again. BUT for the time being, I want to enjoy summer, play outside a LOT with my kids and enjoy being able to just pick up and go (since it will be above freezing temps for a few short months). I know I "just started", but it was enough to get me going and I'm looking forward to being back again next fall.

Thanks for following my blog these past few months.

Happy bargain shopping and happy summer!

I'll be back in August! - See you then!! :)

Tell It To Jesus

I'm teaching this song to our 2-5yr olds at church....I've been singing it all day. What a blessing to know that the Lord hears and answers prayer!

Tell It To Jesus

Are you weary, are you heavy hearted?
Tell it to Jesus, tell it to Jesus
Are you grieving over joys departed?
Tell it to Jesus alone.

Do the tears flow down your cheeks unbidden?
Tell it to Jesus, tell it to Jesus
Have you sins that to men's eyes are hidden?
Tell it to Jesus alone.

Do you fear the gathering clouds of sorrow?
Tell it to Jesus, tell it to Jesus
Are you anxious what shall be tomorrow?
Tell it to Jesus alone.

Are you troubled at the thought of dying?
Tell it to Jesus, tell it to Jesus
For Christ's coming kingdom are you sighing?
Tell it to Jesus alone.

Tell it to Jesus, tell it to Jesus
He is a Friend that's well known
You've no other such a friend or brother
Tell it to Jesus alone.
