pennies from heaven

Remember that time I quit my awesome job?
And then realized insurance cost a bazillion dollars and doesn't cover anything?
And then thought ohmygoshicantbelievewejustdidthat???????????

We had a breakdown last week - the entire fam.
Once we figured out private insurance cost literally as much as our house payment and "more than likely" won't cover anything, we lost it.
Did you know you can't buy insurance that covers pregnancies? Unless you have a group plan...
That's kind of important if you have to have major abdominal surgery to have babies.
(oh, don't worry, the self pay is only like, $5000 or so bucks, no big deal)

I was in tears.
Jared was hacked off.
And CK was laughing and playing with the "boo-ful" girl in the mirror without a care in the world.

Sadly, it took me a couple of days to realize, but I should have been doing the same thing. 
(not really laughing at myself in the mirror, but you get my drift)
It's funny how God can use our kids to teach us so much. 
She doesn't have to worry. 
She knows we will take care of her. 
Why should I worry?
I have someone much more dependable than me on my side. 

Since that day, and even before then now that I look back with a little less emotion and a little more perspective, God has presented us with more "job" opportunities than we can even get done! We are so unbelievable blessed, and I know that the Lord will continue to send things our way. 

"And in your book were all written
the days that were ordained for me,
when as yet there was not one of them."
Psalm 139:16

He's got us covered. 

She's got her tape measure on and she's ready to work if you need anything. 
She is especially great at spilling and then picking up her own cheerios...sometimes.


  1. Love your faith and your ability to trust that God is going to work this out for your family because He will. Your little one is precious!
