Well, it’s happened again.
It’s beginning to not even phase us anymore. This is the fourth time in the past two years.
Jerry was laid off this past Friday.
I don’t think I told you about the last couple of jobs he’s lost. I hate to be like, “He lost his job.” “He found a job!” “He lost a job.” “Oh, he found a job again!”
It seems like the companies hiring him just can’t seem to keep enough work to justify his position for very long. At one point he was working three part-time jobs just to keep us afloat. I hope it doesn’t come to that again.
The poor guy. He’s always the last one hired, first let go.
It’s incredibly frustrating having nothing financially solid to stand on. And realizing that everything could be pulled out from under us at a moment’s notice.
We know that there is a reason why this keeps happening to us. What is YHWH’s plan? We’ve really been praying about becoming self-employed, so that Jerry can be home more to help around the homestead. Is this the motivation we need to start getting creative?
I really think it is.
Once again, I ask that you pray for our feet to be guided. There are a lot of things up in the air for us right now. A lot that we have been praying about. We just want to make sure that we are in YHWH’s will.
Don’t you worry. Something good will come from this. And as soon as I figure it out I’ll be sure to let you know! *smile*
