You would think...

Oh you would think that life would be awful with less than $100 in the bank at all times. You would think that life would be awful when I hardly ever see my husband anymore. You would THINK that life would be awful when you can't get a full night's sleep and don't see it happening in the next 18 years...

You would think.

But, I have a hope.

It reminds me of a song we sang when I travelled with my college:

I have a hope
That will never fade away
It's alive in me
Living day to day

I have a hope
And my hope has a name
His name is JESUS!

Praise God He's put this hope in my heart that there is relief on the horizon. I'm not sure when it will come or in what form, but He has proven faithful time and time again and I just have to rely on that hope.

But friends, you're not in the dark, so how could you be taken off guard by any of this? You're sons of Light, daughters of Day. We live under wide open skies and know where we stand. So let's not sleepwalk through life like those others. Let's keep our eyes open and be smart. People sleep at night and get drunk at night. But not us! Since we're creatures of Day, let's act like it. Walk out into the daylight sober, dressed up in faith, love, and the hope of salvation.

~I Thessalonians 5:4 (The Message)

Oh my goodness, I know the stress that that can give...but I also know exactly how weirdly content no money, no time, etc can be when faced together in a marriage. You have shared just in the most casual, not topic-driven comments that you are so tied to your husband, that I'm sure God is pleased.
