Being a wife and mother in addition to working full-time is not always easy. There were many years of struggling with my situation before God showed me I needed to step into my roles as wife, mother and home keeper now instead of later when I could be at home full-time. But in this moment, I'm truly seeing how all things work according to God's plan and in His perfect time. On Saturday, my husband was let go from his job. In this time of great economic uncertainty, our income has been cut in half. However, we are choosing to see this as an opportunity instead of a setback. My husband's job was very demanding and stressful on him as well as our family. Now he has the opportunity to find something better - and pretty much anything would be better!
I'm thankful in this time that we at least have my income to fall back on as well as our emergency fund (thanks Dave Ramsey!). God knows the desires of my heart. How I would love to be home more, even if on a part-time basis during the day. But He also knows our needs before we do. And sees our situations from a much larger vantage point. Right now, I am where God needs me to be in this season in our life. And I'm thankful for His provisions.
