Dinner Ideas for the Week

Happy new week!  It’s like a mini fresh start, and sometimes we really need one, don’t we?  I’ve had a lot on my mind this past week, and yet I had such a good admonition in my devotions one day, that when I worry about things, I’m not trusting God, or the fact that He will be with me always, even in the future which is often what I worry about. Isn’t that good news great news!  It’s something to meditate on when our minds start to wander into dangerous worrying territory.  Since it was such an encouraging reminder to me, I just had to share it with you too, so you might be encouraged as well!  🙂

How are you doing with meal planning?  It helps lessen the stress and chaos of busy days so much!  Here are some delicious dinner ideas to help you get started!
