I was reading over at Vox Nova an article on tithing this week. I was thinking as I was reading it that we have seen God looking after us since we started tithing.
Today is pay day and I was going through our bills. After paying them all we were going to have about $100.00 to feed our family and get petrol for the fortnight. We do have savings for bills from previous fortnights when we haven't had a lot of bills but I was hoping that a fair bit of that would be used for Christmas presents and some more renovations. With the bills that we have our savings were going to be pretty insignificant.
I finished of going through our paper work and found a tax notice down the bottom. I thought what is this? We haven't received anything recently from the tax office. It was a refund cheque from 2003. I couldn't believe it. I cannot believe it has been in the bottom of our paper work for so long and shown up when we have an expensive fortnight of bills. There was much rejoicing when I told Steve and the children. It has come at just the right time.
Praise God for small miracles.
