Joe came home early from work on Wednesday with not too unexpected news..he was laid off. Luckily we hadn't put in new carpet in the house so we have a reserve-our biggest worry is Joe's health insurance-he has to have it. If you will please pray for us that we might find a job soon and that it will have benefits-at least for Joe. In the meantime we will finish tiling in our front rooms. We have already bought the materials-and ripped up the floor-so if we have to sell the house, it will help that the tile will be completed. It is a dissapointment I know for my parents-as we probably won't be coming home for Thanksgiving due to wanting to keep our expenses to a minimum. We do have a lot to be thankful for. I am most thankful for Faith. It has sustained our family through it's ups and downs. And I can't help but feel that as it says in the scriptures-all things will work towards our good, talking about or afflictions. It is a comfort and I feel that this was a necessary occurance for us-not something to feel upset and mad about. Just another stepping stone to make us stronger and test us. And maybe there will be a company out there that needs Joe more right now-or a better job for us possibly. One way or the other-we have traveled down this road before and know that it will all work out in the end.
