encouragement

As we all know, this is one of the worst economic times, since the Depression era. We keep hearing how dismal things are, and will continue to be. Why is it then, that when I drive around and run errands, it looks like business as usual??? Is it just living in West county, USA, that makes it appear like all is the same?? Are others in the area being impacted like we are in our home?? Many of you know that Mike builds foundations for big homes.....so, as you can imagine, things have changed for our household. I know that some of you followers of this blog are in the same boat, and I just wanted to share some words of encouragement. Things here have gotten pretty dismal (to use a word of the times) at times, lately. But this I know, my continued faith in the Lord and His unending intercession, on our behalf, has kept us afloat. There have been some tears shed, anxiety felt, doubt, doubt and more doubt. But, with continued faith He has once again, given us all that we need and then some. I am working part time now at the hospital, Mike has been getting about half his normal hours, but we are excited about ANY hours he gets!! My classes for the next 2 months are FULL and we are continually blessed with the love and support of family and friends!! I am here to exclaim "God is GOOD". If you know Him already, don't forget to TRUST IN HIM, He loves and wants the best for those whom He calls his own!!! Are there more dismal days ahead, Oh, I'm quite sure there are, but with God on our side, whom or what shall we fear!!!!

Tell her I will think of her pretty smile every time I look at it.
Love and miss you all
