The news of twins last week has really turned our nice little plan for our family upside down. There are many financial, physical, time, and emotional concerns.
I was feeling sorry for myself because we also don't have parents who can help us financially. I was driving along getting pretty angry at my parents for the poor financial decisions they have made; and how now in a time of need there is no financial support. (I still love them despite that.) Then God let me know that he is also my Father and that he can provide everything I need.
At that point I decided that I needed to put my faith in God and make our finances a matter of prayer. I talked to DH about it and he thought it was a good idea. So we started praying. Yesterday, DH looked at his bank account and found extra money from his work. It seems that he won some big award that he didn't even know about.
I felt very grateful to God for providing this extra boost to us. It showed me that he is aware of the stress twins is going to put on us. But God sent the twins and He will provide.
