One thing I love being able to do, is to pour into other peoples lives. I have found over the years that I am able to do that without a lot of money… My gift of photography gives me this ability… baking, even just reaching out with an email or phone call… the ability to touch someone can be as simple as that… but lately I have found it hard to do certain things I desire to do because we lack financially right now. After job loss… many many moves…. baby, after baby… the cost of living for us right now is very tight. We live paycheck to paycheck and there honestly is not much left.

I have never been one to worry about our finances regardless. I believe firmly that our God loves us and that He will provide what we need. One thing I am praying for however is financial freedom… and while I do not expect to ever win something as luxurious as $5,000 dollars a week, that sure would be nice. :) We budget… and learn to live within our means… but one day… I hope for more, for many reasons…

The ability to give… to serve… and do, will happen, regardless… it just may take a lot longer than I may want to wait :) – which… if that is what the Lord has planned for us, then that is totally fine.

Finding contentment in the midst of these struggles can be hard…. I don’t think any of us are alone in that.
