Do you worry?
It's been quite the month where expenses seem to soar out of sight, and then somehow they settle into something more manageable.
This month it was new glasses for me! I love getting new ones, this time I picked a purple frame. Sounds pretty out-there but it's surprisingly neutral. So there was that expense.
We planned on the trip to Michigan for a good friends wedding.
What we didn't expect was my computer to DIE. That has brought a lot of stress. Do we buy a new one, but I want a MAC! Can't afford one of those, maybe I can get mine fixed, but how many programs will I need to repurchase?
Then there are tires to buy for the car, truck and two trailers.
The more I thought of all the money needed to do these things my heart rate would rise, my stomach would clench and I wanted to lie on the couch and cover my head with a blanket.
Then I remembered. I'm not in charge of my life. God is. He's said so many times, even given me verses to remind me not to worry.

So I went to the wedding and let God take charge.
The computer has been fixed, a few tires purchased and my glasses are perched on my nose.
God is in control.
