Tracy Jones Encouragements, For Life, Uncategorized

I sat in the passenger seat with my hands folded to preserve my freshly manicured nails. Usually they are a mess from house cleaning and craft projects and general neglect, but my mom had taken me for a much needed manicure just the day before. All morning I’d fidgeted and packed and repacked and removed things all while carefully preserving …

Home and Back Again

Tracy Jones Uncategorized

Three and a half years since my last blog!  That actually made me laugh out loud when I saw this tonight.  Three and a half years to start a business and get that tiny little frail sapling to be strong enough to carry our family.  Three and a half years of seeing miracles, and being stretched, and questioning and standing, …

… and back in again.

For some reason I decided to check my blog today. I don’t know why because if I haven’t been here, then no one else has either. However, just reading the title of my last blog made me laugh so hard that I just felt inspired to write. Actually, I feel inspired to write often lately, I just don’t. So anyway, …

Loving Life Again

Tracy Jones Uncategorized

I didn’t mean to disappear this week. I honestly thought I would be writing all week. I thought I would get a lot of other things accomplished as well. However, all week I have been struggling with headaches that have made it really hard to look at my computer screen. I very rarely have headaches, and so for me this …

The Week Off

Tracy Jones Uncategorized

I certainly didn’t intend to take the week off from blogging, but it is already Friday and that is exactly what I have done. It has been a very full week for me. I have had something on every evening which is usually when I have a moment to write. I even had several blogs in my heart and head …

Ten Trillion Dollars and Counting…

“Prosperity is when people buy things they can’t afford; recession is when they stop doing it.” ~H.E. Martz, The Wall Street Journal, 1963. It is a funny thought to me that due to what is happening in the economy, people have started doing what they should have been doing all along. They are saving their money, starting to budget, watching …

Coralling Your Credit Cards

Tracy Jones Uncategorized

This post is re-run from June of 2008. I started to write a new blog and went back and discovered I had already written what I wanted to say! Yea, I took the evening off and still get to say what I wanted to. Thank you Jesus 🙂 So I feel your heart torn… why give up the convenience of …

From my home to yours, have a wonderful New Year. I am excited to see what this new year holds and so grateful for what God did in 2008. I hope you enjoy the first day of the year today. Do something different. Celebrate your life and the people that you love. It is a good day to be alive …

The Father’s Love

Tracy Jones Uncategorized

Well, I can’t seem to get the blog written, but I am working on my book, so I think it’s just that I am doing what I am supposed to be doing. But I just have to share this video with you. Nothing to do with budgeting, but it also puts everything in perspective. Love and fear cannot co-exist. His …

Hey friends, I just wanted to give you an update since it has been a week. The Jones family is doing great. We are enjoying the Christmas season immensely. It is so fun to hear the kid’s questions and to focus our conversations with them so much on Jesus. I know you should always do that and we do, but …
