I am asking for prayer for my dear Uncle Henry Toro. He is such a strong man of God. He was raised for quite sometime by my parents...so I grew up having him as a big brother~I have so many wonderful memories of my him. Since dad's passing he has stepped up and been a real sounding board for me and Tom. He suffered his fourth heart attack this past Saturday and was to have an angioplasty today but the tests came back with very bad news of extensive damage to most of his valves....so tomorrow morning at five am he will be having open heart surgery. I would so appreciate prayer for him. He has a fifteen year old son and two precious grandchildren as well as another son and daughter. He has been married for over thirty years to my Aunt Sharon. I am praying for guidance and wisdom for the doctors. Strength for his family and complete healing for him. Thank you all so much!

So very thankful~ Tom got the job!! He starts training on Monday. He was told they would like to train him to be a sales manager....so I am sending the Lord before..praying that he would find favor with fellow employees and of course his bosses. He is a hard worker and simply needs a chance. I continue to work at the bank~ everyone is pleasant though it is hard for me to be standing for hours on end. I just get up everyday and send the Lord before~ he has given me the ability to get through each day. I am going to be looking into taking some classes~ so many avenues out there...going to pray and see where the Lord opens doors. Gabby had a wonderful time this this weekend at the student leadership conference. Austin and Amanda spent the weekend at Titi Sylvia's house watching movies..playing Pokeno and snacking. Going to spend the next day resting up for the week of work ahead. So thankful for God's continued provision.

Life has been moving at a frantic pace as of late~ the days just seem to blend together. I have working a great deal....six days a week...But! so thankful as Tom is still looking for work. God is good giving me the strength I need each day. So looking forward to Sunday~the day of rest. Tom is excited; he has a job interview on Monday! The job is in his field and last year this company had offered him a position but it was as a contractor..now the terms of employment have changed and they are offering a base and commissions as well as expense allowance..so we will see what transpires. It is in Gods hands! God continues to be faithful to our family~ and I continue to pray for direction and guidance in our lives. There are days when I wonder when the Lord will deliver us from this season in our lives but on those days I just really try to remember that I have to trust~ its not easy but I was reminded this morning during my quiet time that we are no meant for this world...it is not our home. A thought I have to tell you I find comforting. I am trying to relax in my Father's arms~ reminding myself I am not in control and you know what I am learning; I don't have to be! and this is a really freeing realization.
