The question I am asked a million times- I bet you have your hands full? Is starting to get old but really hit me hard today. Sometimes I cannot believe I am even a “mama” or “mommy” let alone to 4. Max and Elizabeth are twins (obviously) and 9 months old, Alexander “Xander” is 21 months and Nevaeh 5. How do I do it? (another question I am asked a lot). Well read on.
As Friday’s roll around and my hubby gets paid we have nothing. After bills, diapers, wipes, food, gas- we have hardly anything. I am being real here in saying that sometimes we appreciate it when family members give us extra food, clothing for the kids and diapers. I don’t know where we would be without support sometimes. When tax refunds come each year that’s what we use for another vehicle or house fixings or to pay future house tax payments. But one thing is for sure and that is God is good and at least we have a house, food, no DEBT, A vehicle, a church family and friends/family. Thank you Becky for a glimpse to this reminder. (check out her blog post to get at what I am telling you). God has always provided so why do I doubt God’s provisions on Friday? Why do I trust Him on other days to provide?
I bet you have your hands full could be true- yes with childcare and keeping up with appointments, which child got a diaper change or not; but its more about I have my hands and heart full of love and needing God everyday to keep me full. He alone provides! That is how I do it!
