The question I am asked a million times- I bet you have your hands full? Is starting to get old but really hit me hard today.  Sometimes I cannot believe I am even a “mama” or “mommy” let alone to 4.  Max and Elizabeth are twins (obviously) and  9 months old, Alexander “Xander” is 21 months and Nevaeh 5. How do I do it? (another question I am asked a lot). Well read on.

As Friday’s roll around and my hubby gets paid we have nothing.  After bills, diapers, wipes, food, gas- we have hardly anything.  I am being real here in saying that sometimes we appreciate it when family members give us extra food, clothing for the kids and diapers.  I don’t know where we would be without support sometimes. When tax refunds come each year that’s what we use for another vehicle or house fixings or to pay future house tax payments. But one thing is for sure and that is God is good and at least we have a house, food, no DEBT, A vehicle, a church family and friends/family. Thank you Becky for a glimpse to this reminder. (check out her blog post to get at what I am telling you).  God has always provided so why do I doubt God’s provisions on Friday?  Why  do I trust Him on other days to provide?

I bet you have your hands full could be true- yes with childcare and keeping up with appointments, which child got a diaper change or not; but its more about I have my hands and heart full of love and needing God everyday to keep me full.  He alone provides! That is how I do it!

    Phew, girl! It is always amazing that gifts and hand me downs come just at the right moment. I have totally had some experiences like that lately. I actually have a blog post sitting in my drafts (since last summer) about that. I may have to roll it out soon. We go back and forth about 3 or 4 kids – a lot in my mind for financial reasons. I don’t want to look back and regret a choice just because we were worried about money. If God leads, He will provide. Thanks for sharing your heart.

    Such adorable little one’s! I bet you are busy, but so cool that God provides for your needs and they you have people in your life to be his instruments 🙂

    What a good reminder in this post! I’m from a family of 7 kids and not an extravagant lifestyle–but like you said, God has always provided, he’s always been faithful. We need to continue to trust him rather than relying more on our own efforts!

    […]   Lots of exciting things have happened this week, but God gets the credit for it. You get the credit for it! Yes I may be obsessed with blogging and getting inspired by other peoples blogs/pictures, getting to know others; but nothing is as important as my relationship with Christ. Thank you so much for your encouraging comments in this post and this post. […]
