There is nothing better to put you in your place, bring your head out of the clouds and totally wake you up from la la land than paying bills. Depressing! I don't think it matters how much money I have in the bank... it could be a good week or a very, very, very sad week as far as the bank statement goes and I still can't find "joy" in writing those checks.
Where does it all go? I know gas has been high. Milk is high. Doing anything for fun these days costs an arm and a leg (unless your my sister and live next to the "free to enjoy" lake!). It seems like our paycheck is spent before I've even have a chance to deposit it! Ugh! What else can I say?
If you haven't already guessed... it was payday for us today, which means I payed bills. Which means I was definitely not the "fun" mom today!!! My son is ready to go back to his aunt's house...
However, the silver lining is that, just when I think things seem about hopeless, God sends me a hug! I really can't share what form my "hug from God" took today, but let me say this... I serve a MIGHTY God, who takes care of his own! (And no, I didn't win the lottery!!!)
Matthew 6: 19-34 ... Read this and remind yourself how much the Lord cares!
