What is in a leap year? February 29th! Another day added to our calendar, in essence to keep time and seasons in sync with the earths orbit around the sun.
FUN FACT #1
Did you know that people born on this day are called, “LEAPLINGS“? No? Don’t feel bad, I didn’t either.
FUN FACT #2
Technically a person born on leap day, can’t celebrate their birthdays except for once every four years, although many choose to celebrate on Feb 28th or March 1st for the other years.
FUN FACT #3
Even though, I think most girls want their guy to do the proposing, did you know that it is customary for it to be ok for a woman to propose to a man on Leap Day? No? Me either!
The Bible says there is a reason for everything, (Ecclesiastes 3) so obviously, HE wanted someone to implement a leap day. I love fun facts and there are several out there about so many things!
Are you doing anything memorable for your LEAP DAY?
I got home a tad bit earlier today, than I do many days. For me, saying I got home early, usually means that I managed to get home before 8pm. If I say, “I’m working late.” it’s probably going to be 10pm or later. Today I was highly blessed that it was before 4pm!
Brad is in the middle of painting our back room for a rehab project. Which is also part of his quest on our family challenge. So I checked on his progress and decided a quick service meal was in order.
After I made it home, we sat down to eat and were talking money. Brad looked at me and said, “please don’t cuss!” I said, “We have to get on more strict of a budget, to get where we know that we want to go.”
He chuckled and said, “yep! I knew you were going to cuss! You said BUDGET.” We both giggled.
BUT how many of us think budget is a bad word? Yes I know it sucks because I personally don’t want to think about a budget. I want to just reach into the wallet, pull out the card, and swipey, swipey, without a second thought.
Without a map, we can’t blindly travel across country and get to our destination effectively. On the same token, without a budget, we won’t efficiently live out the life God intends for us to have.
So today I declare it to be a new day! I vow to do my part – Brad and I as a team – to get it right in our lives!
I’ll keep you posted as to how the story unfolds.
