Could I please ask for your prayers? *a tad long* ** UPDATED ***

I'm having a bit of a pity party for myself, and I just feel like I could use some prayers.

My husband is in the Army, and when we had my son, we lived in Germany. Well, we're STILL trying to get his social security number a YEAR later, and we're living in the states again. So, that means that the Army isn't paying us anymore for having a dependant, and our 2008 tax return did not reflect us having any children. That's over $4000 that the goverment owes us. We've been doing ok, but the past couple of weeks have been hard. The brakes went out on our car, and a couple of bills were MUCH bigger than usual.

Things are VERY tight this month. Hubby and I were just looking at our budget and it's the day before payday... and our paycheck is nearly completely spent.

We're really trying hard not to ask anyone for money, because that's just a sure-fire way to get behind, ya know? We're trying to change some things around in our budget so that we're not so tight in the next couple of months... but this month is hard.

If you guys could just spare a couple of minutes to pray for my family, I would really appreciate it. I just feel like we need guidance in setting up a sucessful budget. (And sticking to it!)

Thanks for your time :) And sorry if this seems silly.


Thank you so much for your prayers last night. IT WORKED! I got an e-mail this morning from the Social Security office in Germany saying that they are sorry about it taking so long, and that it's going to take even longer. BUUUT... They gave me a document that I can take into a local social security office and by-pass the army. All I need is him, me and his passport.  This is amazing news! Now we can get the rest of our tax refund from last year, and if not by Christmas, then maybe right after.

Thank God, and thank all of you!! I so much appreciate your prayers and kind words last night! God Bless all of you :)

Thanks so much everyone. Like I said, I know it seems silly... but I'm praying, and it's a comfort knowing that others will do the same for me too :) Thank you all so much.

Thank you so much. I check the mail EVERYDAY waiting for his social security card to come in.. haha. Someday soon I hope. The worst part is, is that it all has to go through the army, so there's absolutely nothing I can do. It stinks! But thank you so much for your kind words :)
