Daily Agenda

  • Shelby and I went bargain/ thrift store shopping for clothes, mostly for myself because I recently tossed out a bunch of clothes I either did not wear or like. It left me without much in the way of casual clothes.
    • We visited 3 stores and came away with quite a bit of good clothing. The stores we Ross, Family Thrift and Plato’s Closet.
    • We also stopped by JC Penny to see if they were having any sales, but the one thing I found was still quite expensive for this trip
    • I purchased a pair of grey canvas sneakers, pair of tan chinos, one golf polo, 3 pairs of dress socks and two pairs of shorts.
    • I previously had none of the above minus golf polo and pair of shorts (although the colors are different so that is a positive)
  • Shelby and I attended a wedding for one of her co-workers on Saturday night. We ate, we drank, we danced and then we left.

        • Distress
        • Deliverance – the Lord raised up judges ‘who saved them’

    3. Honor God in your life
