Kroger WILL NOT be accepting Commpetitor's Coups

Hi Ladies...
I have some bad news...I went to Kroger yesterday to my weekly shop and when the manager came to override my competitor's coupons...he said "have you been told already that when we move into our new store (meaning by TSC and Heritage) that we will no longer be accepting these?" I was shocked...he said that they were the only Kroger in middle Tn that accepted comp. coups and they have decided not to any longer. He was unaware if the one on Port Royal would take them. SO as of Jan 11th when they move, they will take them...but after that they will not. We will have to see if the other store decides to continue...I would suggest, since we have close to 100 women who have taken the class, that we all email Kroger or better yet when in the store personally ask to speak with the manager and let him know how disappointed we are that they have decided to stop taking the comp. coups. Maybe if enough of us express concern they will reconsider. Please keep in mind that Publix will still honor comp. coups, however only for Kroger, Food Lion and Target...NOT GFS, CVS, WAGS, or Family Dollar. Which is why it is vital that Kroger continue accepting them :-)
I will be posting this on the blog and sending this out via email also to all of the ladies, so if you get this more than once I do apologize...but I want everyone to be in the loop.

Much Love...Happy couponing!

Good Choice

From Proverbs 31 devotional

Good Choice
26 Jan 2009
Rachel Olsen
"If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you." James 1:5a (NLT)I have a tween-age daughter. She told me the other day she wants to begin babysitting for others. She is quite good with young kids, and a natural born leader, but I'm not certain she is ready for this. It's a lot of responsibility to be totally in charge, even if only for a few hours.Solomon was the son of King David. Born nearly a thousand years before Christ, Solomon was installed as king just before his father's death. He was a tween-ager at the time. Only twelve years-old and now in charge of an entire nation; can you imagine? Makes babysitting for a few hours sound simple.A while after Solomon's ordination, God appeared to the young king in a dream and invited him to make any request. "God said, ‘What do you want? Ask, and I will give it to you!'" (1 Kings 3:5b NLT). Imagine your tween-aged or even teen-aged self from years ago. Now imagine God; in almost genie-like fashion, though God is most certainly not a genie #8220; asking you to make a request. What would you ask for? My young self might have asked for a pony, new roller skates, a little sister, a car, or maybe a date with singer Shawn Cassidy.However, none of this is what Solomon asked for. He replied:"Now, O Lord my God, you have made me king instead of my father, David, but I am like a little child who doesn't know his way around. And here I am in the midst of your own chosen people; a nation so great and numerous they cannot be counted! Give me an understanding heart so that I can govern your people well and know the difference between right and wrong. For who by himself is able to govern this great people of yours?" (2 Kings 3:7-9, NLT)Good choice! Feeling the weight of his responsibilities, Solomon asked God for the knowledge he would need to fulfill his purpose; to lead the people and judge fairly between them. Approving of Solomon's request, God answered:"Because you have asked for wisdom in governing my people with justice and have not asked for a long life or wealth or the death of your enemies; I will give you what you asked for! I will give you a wise and understanding heart such as no one else has had or ever will have! And I will also give you what you did not ask for; riches and fame! No other king in all the world will be compared to you for the rest of your life! And if you follow me and obey my decrees and my commands as your father, David, did, I will give you a long life." (1 Kings 3:11-14, NLT)Solomon was granted wisdom from God, and as he followed it, all God promised came true. In short order, Solomon's wealth grew tremendously. In today's market, he would be a multi-millionaire, or even a trillionarie. He owned property, livestock, and mines. He had 12,000 horsemen alone on his payroll, to drive his 4,000 chariots.His reputation was renowned. Kings from all over the world came to listen and learn from Solomon. Indeed Solomon still holds the title of the wisest man that ever lived. (Jesus not included in a list of mere men.)Solomon's wisdom; flowing from the throne of God; brought the nation peace and prosperity like it had never known before. The forty years that Solomon sat as king were the best years in all of Israel's Old Testament history. All because he asked God for the wisdom he would need to fulfill his purpose, and then he followed that wisdom.My purpose on this earth isn't to lead my nation like Solomon, but nonetheless I have a purpose. And I have people I‘ll lead. And responsibilities. And you do too! So, we need to make good choices. Let's take our cue from the wisest man to ever live and ask God today for the knowledge we'll need to fulfill our purposes well.
Dear Lord, today I eagerly ask You for wisdom for my life. Please give me knowledge, understanding, discernment, and the heart-set needed to follow it. May I rightly fulfill Your purposes for me today, and each day. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
