Budgeting, Rice and Beans, and Jehovah Jireh!
Check out this pantry that was blessed by God beyond its boundaries today! Mark came home from seminary today with a truck full of groceries someone anonymously gave to us. We have been eating beans and rice, beans and rice, beans and rice...etc. for the last 3 weeks trying to stay within our budget and today...WOW!! What a humble reminder that God sees our needs. Sure I could have gone out and put the groceries on the credit card since we needed them...but how much better to stand in the kitchen and weep for joy over God's obvious provision to our growing family! Mark and I kept unloading more and more into the pantry praying and thanking God with eyes filled with tears and hearts filled with praise...and Titus walked around clapping and squealing repeating us in saying Hallelujah! Needless to say, my pantry has never looked so awful......but yummy!!
