My brother saw us on TBN and said that I was a movie star! You must know my brother to see how funny this is! After we talked and I shared with him that we purchased a new car, he watched the broadcast again. This time he tells my sister, “She is not practicing what she teaches!” He goes on to share that I spoke on budgeting your finances in marriage and not trying to be like the Jones by purchasing things that you are not able to afford. By now, I am ROTFLOL!! Well, my sister and I speak regularly and she shares with him that she knows the full story.
She shares, did you know that over the last four years that Danny (my husband) has brought home two cars that he was purchasing for her and she had him to take it back to the dealer because she felt that they were not ready for the increase financial burden. Did you know that she worked hard the last four years to pay for her current vehicle so that she could afford a new vehicle? He then shares that he feels much better and that he was glad to know that. He says, I thought that the next time I would see her she would be in a long mink coat and sunglasses! She shares that even if she does have on a long mink and sunglasses, she would still be down to earth! She assures him that we are grounded.
How about you?! Are you grounded on a firm, sure foundation?! Do you have a family budget?! Do you trust God to provide in your season?! Do you plan and wait to purchase large financial items when you can better afford them?! Something to think about!
