Dual to single....

Priorities and beliefs are always tested.

And soon enough in the ensuing weeks my wife's and mine will be taking its share...

Thank God for the fact that we don't have that many financial obligations (although it would be really nice to have none what so ever).

For now the main ones are that of my wife's study loan and our car loan.

So now with the baby on the way (and really soon i might add) and the fact that we both stand by our principles of putting family first...we'll soon be converting from a dual income family to that of a single income.

Ling will be on 2 years unpaid leave (of which i am fully supportive of)... and that therefore means that i will play the role of being the 'sole bread winner' of the family.

So i was crunching some numbers and i realise... it's going to be quite the challenge.
So on top of our belief in building the family strong... our belief and faith in giving as well as God and His providence is also tried.

And to add icing to the cake... i'm not too sure what exactly my financial status will be like in the light of the possible changes my career may be taking (which i'm actually hoping for) in the near future.

It's going to be an 'exciting' road ahead.
Then again, since when it ever stopped being 'exciting'.

God, You be glorified.
