Last year, we went through a lot of tough stuff. A lot of it was little things, but as we all know, little things can add up to big things.
Our cars landed in the shop multiple times.
Our septic tank went out.
Our tv stopped working.
Our attic needed repairs.
On and on it went. It felt like once we tackled one project, something else would break. As soon as we paid off one bill, another crept up. We were also trying so hard to make life "perfect" for the arrival of Evie Grace (go ahead, you can laugh at that one...). It may seem trivial, but when you are paying out $$$$ that's a lot in just a few months time. It was stressful.
But, now, even as we face an entirely new set of trials, I see how "all things work together".
Because, during those times of "tough stuff" we realized that the only way we would make it through was to trust God.
It's amazing that He cares for us. Even in the tiniest of details.
I remember shortly after co-hosting a yard sale with one of my close friends, we sat down to count the money. We had both made a VERY nice sum.
Well, the very next day, my husband's car broke down. I remember hemming and hawing about how life wasn't fair, yadda yadda. That's when we found out the amount of repairs was for the exact amount that we had left over from our yard sale money.
He cares, and provides for every little detail. And for that I'll be eternally grateful.
