Chasing Contentment

Tuesday, August 2

It's a testament to God's grace and to my feeling of being all cozy in His love this summer that the continuing financial stresses we encounter haven't dampened my current contentment.

We bought Griff this lovely boy bedroom furniture that meets his growing-up needs, and we got a payment plan that made the whole thing very reasonable. Mere days later, Mike's hearing tests went farther awry than we had expected, and we were presented with a $4,200 estimate for the hearing aids he needs. And today, we discovered we have termites under our old, wooden home. Another $1,100 to take care of those.

It's one of those times when it seems like it's one thing after another, but it's also a time when I am confident that we can make it work if we rearrange our budget and tighten our belts for a time. I'm not a very good belt-tightener, in all honesty, but I know that we can do what is necessary. There has never been a time in our lives when God didn't provide exactly what we needed when we needed it, so I do not fear this. Remarkable, indeed.
