Shop ALDI For Your Holiday Grocery Items!

I have shopped at ALDI a few times before and have always been pleasantly surprised with their selection of products. The store itself isn’t big, but they have LOTS of stuff and all at a reasonable price. The Captain loves to put the quarter in the shopping cart and then retrieve it later. This is just one way that ALDI saves customers’ money, by having us return our carts so they don’t have to pay someone else to do it.

ALDI always has a great selection of seasonal items, as well. Upon entering the [...]

“Love Came Down” – The True Meaning of Christmas

Everyone knows that Christmas has become a commercialized holiday.  While it has Christ's name in it, Christmas isn't about Christ to so many people in this world.  That's why it's that much harder for Christians to teach our kids the true meaning of Christmas.  But I'm up for the challenge because really, it is the greatest story ever told and the reason that we are who we are.  Jesus Christ came down to this earth as an infant, pure and innocent, as a gift to the world so we might be forgiven of our sins and get [...]
