ok I cannot tell you HOW HAPPY I am to be back on line....oh yeah baby....I'm back!!!
Big thanks to my sista Shash for writing my blog for me this week while I was stuck in the dark ages!! you rock sis!
I got a comment a couple of days ago from Yellow Mama about not having to beg for our bread and then Sandra (friend/neighbor) said the EXACT same thing to me and you know what we were given today???? A HUGE BOX OF BREAD! so it happened literally! a friend from PAC gave us a very large box of bread, muffins, tortillas, and boboli pizza bread(we are having that for dinner tonight). What a blessing. I know that God is looking out for us.
My parents have also stepped up in a big way and are covering us financially, which made both J and I cry. We are blessed cuz I know his parents would also step in for us as well.
I still haven't heard from any potential job opportunities but I am believing our steps are being ordered so it will come.
Last night was the worst night for J. He was throwing up quite a lot and was so sick I wondered if I needed to take him to the hospital. He is better this afternoon, they gave him extra fluids today at the hospital to keep him hydrated. They told him that he should start feeling better in about a week. They also told him that he might not be able to work for 1-2 years.......GULP.....so our faith is being stretched beyond our comfort zone and that is putting it mildly.
I really felt the Lord telling me awhile ago to "get your head in the game", I wish I had listened more, wish I had been more obedient. I know He is still faithful even when we are not! phew!! Anyways to state the obvious it is SO important to be prepared BEFORE troubles hit! I had this picture of me standing in the mud up to me knees and the winds and storm hit and I was moving but not being blown away.....if my legs were not in so deep I would have......and I thought wow, if I was even deeper I would have felt it even less. I know that my God is a good God and that He knows the plans that He has for us and they are FOR GOOD and NOT FOR EVIL!!! AMEN!!! so we are standing with our feet planted in His promises and His Word.....the winds are blowing and debris is flying....but we will not be moved.
We do feel the emotional end and I know it is important to go through all those, you just can't stay there. So we are angry and scared at times and still in a form of shock, but our core faith is still that God is seeing us through.
Thanks again for all your kind words, prayers and encouragements! and now that I am back on line I can come visit you again! since I have a new computer I lost my favorites, so if you are not on my side bar you have to leave me a comment so I can save you to my new computer!
EDITED: by the way.....this is my 300th post!
