The only person who has a 100% record of hitting the mark with surprises is, well, God. And when He wants to rock my world, it's completely perfect and I never see it coming. Why do I mention this? Because this past weekend, we got two pieces of mail at the same time:
- The first package was a tax voucher for the huge chunk of change we owe the IRS. Since getting married, we've always managed to get tax refunds, but this year we had to sell a bunch of stock to pay for our new house and therefore the government is going to take its share.
- The second envelope contained a bonus check from K's last company before he got laid off. We knew it would be coming in around March, but the surprise was how much it ended up being!
K is so sweet. When he saw that bonus check, he asked if he could use some of it to buy the PS Vita (the first console he hasn't bought on launch day). I was like, "Of course! You earned it after all. Thanks for taking care of this family, silly." So yeah, last night we spent about 2 hours bouncing between 1 Target, 3 Wal-marts, and 3 Game Stops to get his full gaming package:
Thanks to K's old company for being so generous even to their ex-employees, but more importantly, I'm so grateful to God for continuing to fully provide for us. While I don't a clear of view what He has in store for us, I'm learning to trust in Him a little more each day (Proverbs 3:5-6). ^_^
