Hi ya'll! I just wanted to pop in and ask for some prayers. I was pretty rocked tonight when my hubby came home and told me that the buzz at work is that there is going to be a big layoff in two to three weeks. They are planning on going from 50+ guys down to 15. What a cut! As you can probably guess, we are pretty nervous. But through it all, we are trusting our Heavenly Father knowing full well that he has us completely in his grip. I just want to ask you to pray for our little family. Please pray that either there won't be a layoff (what a miracle that would be!) and/or that Shane would not be cut from his job (another miracle!). Please also pray for the other workers and their families. I believe in the power of prayer. I believe that prayer moves the hand of God. And I totally 100% believe that prayer is what will keep us going in this situation.
As of right now, all home projects are on hold - including our laundry room. Shane will install the machines (can you believe we have had them for almost 2 months and they still aren't installed?!) and we will wait to see about demo-ing the rest of the room.
I'm going to give myself a bit of a blogging break for a week or two just until we get a better sense of what is going on. As our family manager, I'm kicking into over drive and really want to secure our home while we have an income coming in. Thankfully, we have been really blessed because Shane has been working a lot of overtime lately. Tomorrow will be his last day of it though.
Thanks so much for your patience ya'll! I know that there are still installments of the Kitchen Organization series I have left to do and projects I want to share. But for right now, I need to take care of my family. Maybe I'm being more dramatic than I need to be but I don't want to take any chances. I want to thank all my new followers as of late. Thanks so much ya'll!! It means so much that you are following me on this journey called life. I promise to be back soon with more bloggin'! And you'll definatly see me around commenting and such, reading blogs totally relaxes me! Take care, ya'll. I'll be praying for you and will keep you posted as to what is going on. Love you!
And, P.S. I wanted to tell you something that I do to make my housework a bit more enjoyable. I have downloaded podcasts onto my ipod and while doing dishes or sweeping, I listen to them. I've recently come across a website called OnePlace that offers Christian podcasts. There are some from popular authors like Kay Arthur and Lisa Lysa TerKeurst of Proverbs 31 Ministries. I also like to listen to Homemakers By Choice. These help me get through my day. Love to listen. And if you don't have an ipod, OnePlace also has other devices where you can listen online. Let me know if you take a listen!
