Dallas and I do our budget using mostly cash envelopes. We're pretty strict and do our very best not to go over our budget. At the beginning of the month I refill the envelopes, and I always hope that I can fill them entirely with the money I made at the restaurant. When I did the envelopes this morning, I realized that we were going to have to withdraw $140 from our checking account to make the money balance.
But then I realized that today is the 31st! And I worked tonight!
It was busy at the restaraunt tonight because of Swiss Days and the Sheep Dog competition at Soldier Hollow. I was slammed from 5:00 until 8:30- at one point I wondered if I would even be able to catch my breath. Before I knew it I didn't have any tables and my manager was sending me home. I tipped out the busers, and when I got home I counted my tips.
Amazing. This has happened to us so many times over the last few years. We always have enough. I know this is because Dallas and I pay or tithing faithfully- without even giving it a second thought. I'm so thankful for how our Heavenly Father watches over us. It was such a wonderful tender mercy tonight.
