I’m working on a more theological post, but today’s post needs to be about the best part of my day–by far. My wife and I don’t have a lot of money. We are not “poor,” per se, but (as of yesterday) were living mostly off of student loans. Not so great for two people. We were beginning to worry some about our finances, but today, my wife got a job! Not only that, but the tuition support from my home church was processed. We are not rich or anything, but it feels so good to not stress over our finances. We still have a financial plan and have to be somewhat frugal, but we’re so blessed to have employment and support from friends, family, and other communities.

Discovering that my home church had sent in a check and we didn’t have to worry anymore nearly brought a tear to mine and my wife’s eyes. It made us realize how truly blessed we are. I apologize if some of this post felt like whining, because I really wanted it to be about rejoicing and realizing our blessings. I know that, as we grow older (and hopefully more financially secure), Kirsten and I will be generous with our gifts, sharing them with others, just as many have shared with us. We give thanks every day, but sometimes have special reason to rejoice. Today is truly one of those days.
