Due to some accounting error, I have miscalculated our budget this month. I have but twenty dollars for shopping today. That will last us until Monday, when another paycheck arrives. August will be a lesson in frugality and economic management. We will have to make due on half a month's funds, instead of a month's. I might have dismayed or despaired or torn my hair years ago. However, we have changed our methods in the past year or so. I no longer stress or worry about money. I have financial peace through walking with our Lord Jesus Christ. For more specifics about our plan, check out Dave Ramsey's website. I accept these set backs as opportunities to learn and to pay some stupid tax.
