Have you ever heard that expression, "I have good news and bad news, which would you like to hear first"? And since I can't hear your response, I will share the good news....It seems like it should be first.
The sale of the house is as final as it can be pre-closing. Everything is signed and delivered, and our closing date is January 15. We are very grateful that God saw fit to sell it, and his timing is perfect, as you will see in the bad news.
Michael has been let go, layed off, fired, eliminated.....is there a nice way to say it? He is no longer employed! Their words were,"We just can't afford you anymore, but we will gladly give you our best of referrals". It was a tad shocking, a bit disconcerting, and at best disappointing. It will be fun to see what God has in store next on this roller coaster he calls life, and I will be right here to tell it all to you! He is so in control, and we are so thankful for his provision so far. We are also thankful for His timing, and confident that he has a plan. That is comforting, as we don't!
So, if you think of it, and you can find some time in this Holiday frenzy, send a prayer up for us. It would be very encouraging!
"Consider the ravens, for they neither sow nor reap,and they have no storeroom or barn: and yet God feeds them: how much more valuable you are than the birds! And which of you by being anxious can add a single cubit to his life's span? "
the words of Jesus, as recorded by Luke chapter 12 verse 24 - 25
