Gratituesday...God's goodness....

Living on the frugal side of life means everything is budgeted and even when extra comes in, it quickly gets budgeted!
Well, this past week, enough was finally able to be 'budgeted' for some new wheat!
Woo Hoo!
I've been out of it for months now and honestly, I'm quite spoiled to it!
God is so good to send a way for extra things in the budget!
And I honestly think that waiting on Him, makes us appreciate what He brings, all the more!

You are so right and I have found that most of the time when extra comes in it isn't just to have fun with no.It is sent in for a reason. We have so many times found that when my husband earns extra money it is because the Lord knew we would need it! What a blessing! We also had some extra come in and well I am feeling so blessed to be able to use it for things we need and maybe a couple of wants. God is so Good! I feel so blessed to be able to get a printer and new curriculum to use for "his glory". I hope I never lose sight of "him" with either items that he has allowed us the oppurtunity to afford right now. Thanks for the post and reminding me how Good God is!

Amen sister!
I love when the budget all come together and the EXTRA is sent to fill in the cracks!
We were blessed to have saved enough money with me working (I saved $10 a shift last year) that we were able to take a long honeymoon weekend this past weekend! It was great and well worth the savings!
We were blessed by the taxs again this year... (LOL 4 kids will do that! I am sure you know!) and we were able to pay our children back the money we had to borrow when a man decided to crash his truck into my hubbies car almost 2 yrs ago... Didn't get enough money to buy another one, so we had to borrow.... BUT now they all have their money back, and We even put some into an emergency fund.... OH, GOD IS SOOO GOOD!!!!
