".....and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest"


This night I have a heavy heart, my sweet husband called with the news this afternoon that he no longer has a job. While the thoughts of what and how and where are all there, most of my focus is on Jimmy and how this turn of events is effecting him and his spirit. He is a good man who has always wanted nothing more than to provide for his family and here he finds himself powerless. We know the Lord is watching over us and that whatever is to come will be ok. We have each other and there is nothing more important than that. I love him and pray that for his sake the Lord might take this burden sooner than later from his shoulders but we trust in our Heavenly Father that His will be done.



Matthew 11:28
"Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest."

Oh I'm so sorry... we went through this a few months ago (darn economy) and a job that was much better and less stressful came along and things are even better than before. Things will definitely work out. Just hang in there!
