On Grocery Shopping

I was baking and ran out of eggs, so I drove to the grocery.

I returned with much more than eggs — frozen pizzas and veggies, drinks, chips, cookies, apple crisps, and a lottery ticket!

Well, I had to buy six "Mix and Match" items to save 50 cents per item. That was a no-brainer.

But I got distracted and bought things that I didn’t really need nor want.

Life's like grocery shopping. We set goals, plan our journey and yet we find ourselves in situations where we weren’t planning to go.

As long as the detour isn't something that'll derail our entire journey, that’s all right. But let's be wary of things that'll derail our spiritual journey. Permanently.

The world's full of sale items out there.

My name's Anna Maria! I publish a new blog post every Monday and Friday, two of my favorite days! If you want to learn more about my journey, my book "Touched by Grace: The Journey" will be released late summer through Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

In the meantime, check out my website touchedbygrace.today and subscribe for book updates and more blog posts! If you've been #tbgtoday, feel free to share your story of grace here.
