one of those weeks..

The past few days have been some rough ones. I try to keep my posts positive a majority of the time, but lets be honest people blog about their lives and life isn't rainbows and butterflies all the time. Life isn't rainbows or butterflies this week.

We knew this time of year would come. The time when we would be basically living off of the income of the summer/fall as we entered the dry season of weddings, winter. All of a sudden life seems so much more expensive. I'm not sure if it's because we don't have a constant income at the moment or because life is really more expensive.

This week we've been hit with some pretty big financial adjustments. It's time to begin paying back my student loans and after I set up my payment plan last week it seems that our payments will be $200 more PER MONTH than we were anticipating, ouch. We are also in the process of switching our policy to another car insurance company who just called to inform us this morning that there is still a citation on my record (speeding ticket a few weeks before our wedding). Therefore our premium was increases $300, ouch again. It seems like these hits have been non-stop the past couple weeks. Needless to say, we're over it. But regardless of all that has been going on I know that God provides. He has been unbelievably faithful in growing our business in the past year and a half and allowed us to take that leap of faith in making this our full-time jobs which has been a HUGE blessing. If anything this time has allowing us to rest our trust and faith in the Lord even more than ever.

“Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow...." Matthew 6:31-34


  1. My husband and I are in that same position with getting the ouch's out of the way. You got it right on though when you say that God will provide. =) He is always on your side and won't hand you anything you cannot handle. =)
