God is Faithful~

God is forever faithful; in the big and small things of life.  Tom lost his job two weeks ago Friday..and to say this didn't send me into a tailspin would not be honest.  I saw it coming...and yet when it happens~well that is something all together different.  I began to pray...there are times throughout the day when my munchkins are napping and it is quiet and I sit there and pray and just talk to the Lord...telling him what is going on and how if it were  not for him; I would have lost it a long time ago.  So I began a job search and found one at a Christian school and I thought ok this is what God has for me.  Not the perfect school but more money.  Well~the Lord had other plans...plans that I could not see....I was offered a good raise to stay right where I am with a job that is five minutes from my home.  God is good!  He is faithful; even when I have lost hope.  I know that I cannot see the big picture and the reason for all the twists and turns but he does and in his time; it will be revealed.  I ask each day for the strength and energy I need to get through and he has provided.  I have asked for continued provision and he has provided...I know that he will continue to walk with me through this bumpy ride and he will continue to guide and direct me steps.  It hasn't been easy and there are days I am overwhelmed but he continues to provide me the comfort that can only be given by him...and for that I am so very thankful.

Oh Vikki..... I'm so sorry about the loss of Tom's job..... I pray there will be something better for him. It's so good to hear about your raise and that you can continue working where you are.
You're ALWAYS such an inspiration to me...... your faith is like a mountain.
Hugs and prayers,
