Rely On God
Sigh. We knew becoming parents would change our lives, and that kids are expensive, but I didn’t think it would be this financially painful. 🙂 I hope (I really hope) now that we caved and bought the last (I hope it’s the last) of the essentials for the baby’s room, we can return to not using our credit card so much. It’s just really hard to have all your family in Canada, and most of your friends in Canada or California. People always tell you that people will be giving you free stuff all the time. I don’t know where these people are. Everyone I know has given away their baby stuff because they are done having kids, or they just had a kid in the last year.
This coming year will truly be a time for us to rely on God to get us through. And we can trust Him, because he’s lead us this far. And He’s always come through in the past. Like when we moved to CA, and had an apartment we couldn’t afford, and I couldn’t work, and we had to take a loan from the Armstrong bank to get by. We wondered how we would survive. Then God came through and we were able to move into student housing, break our lease with no consequences with the expensive place, and live off of Geoff’s paycheck. See, God delivered.
Please just keep us in your prayers. For God’s will to be done, for us to trust in Him to provide for us. And while we’re at it, for God to bless our family and friends, whatever they may be going through.
Psalm 67:1 May God be gracious to us and bless us, and make his face shine upon us.
