we’ve got our love to pay the bills | all must be well

[old pictures, same faces 😉 ]

So, these days finances are pretty tight in this little Henry family,

we are blessed to still afford all of the necessities,

it’s just all of the other little spending that we’ve had to put to the wayside for a bit.

Yesterday we drove past Goodwill and Justin asked me if I wanted to go in to look around,

without thinking I responded that we probably shouldn’t because we can’t afford it right now,

as soon as I said it I had to laugh as I thought about how you know you are poor when you can’t afford to go to Goodwill 😀

To be honest, we are just in a transition time, jobs are being searched for, replies are being waited on, plans are being formed, but nothing is quite finalized yet,

so we are biding our time (and our funds) until we have come through this transition phase!

The first few lines of lyrics from the song You and I by Ingrid Michaelson capture well the sentiment of these days,

Don’t you worry there, my honey
We might not have any money
But we’ve got our love to pay the bills

and the lyrics of Through the Love of God our Savior speak well of the trust required in these days,

Through the love of God our Savior,
All will be well,
Free and changeless is His favor;
All is well.
Precious is the blood that healed us,
Perfect is the grace that sealed us,
Strong the hand stretched forth to shield us,
All must be well.

Though we pass through tribulation.
All will be well,
Ours is such a full salvation;
All is well.
Happy, still in God confiding,
Fruitful, if in Christ abiding,
Holy, through the Spirit’s guiding,
All must be well.

We expect a bright to-morrow;
All will be well,
Faith can sing through days of sorrow,
All is well.
On our Father’s love relying,
Christ our every need supplying,
Whether living now, or dying,
All must be well.

.

These days bring a lot of new and a lot of uncertainty,

they can be overwhelming at times and confusing at times,

but we are taking it one day at a time,

holding on to our young love, while growing up in an adult world. 

learning what it means to listen to God, while hearing so many other voices around us. 

being wise with our resources, while not sacrificing the opportunities we are being blessed with.

It is a somewhat nerve wracking balance, but I am grateful for a gracious God, good family, and a husband who would lose every worldly possession with me and still stand beside me.

I guess we will see what the future holds 🙂
