Jumping In With Both Feet

Today I am truly jumping in with Faith.  I have begun to tithe my 10%.  For me this is about the scariest thing I have ever done.  Being a single mom with six children has meant that we have never had enough money.  I was always scraping to just get by.  This is a huge step in my walk with Christ.

To be completely honest.  I sat down and really looked at what I spent in 2016 on my bad habits and surprise!  It was way more than 10% of my income.  I have done an amazing job at cutting back on my smoking and not spending that $8.00 a day on inhaled suicide has helped my finances a lot.  Not stopping for those happy hour beers everyday.  Another $8.00 a day savings.  Not stopping at Wawa every morning for that coffee?  Another $2.00 a day.

I continue to hope and pray that things within the family will fall back into place, but for now that doesn’t seem to be happening.  Years of pain has it’s way of rearing it’s ugly head from time to time and the holiday’s always seems to make it worse.  I am just looking to the positives and praying for the rest.

It looks like we are going to get snow here in PA so I am going to finish collecting pine cones and settle in for the evening.  Today has been a good day 🙂  Hope yours was too.
