My Dear Hubby was told today!

That the company he interviewed with was wanting to hire him!!! Praise the Good Lord! He won't start for about 2 more weeks but.....we now know he has a job. I am so Thankful! I know it made him feel good too when the one lady that he had spoke with a few times about the job said she knew he would do well on the interview!

I just had to update you. :0)

Thank you so much for your prayers. I'm still praying that everything goes well.

Yesterday was our last day......

We cleaned out the office and finished up at work. I sit with my sewing things around me. I wonder what we'll do and how we'll do it. I know God has a plan. I'm just not sure what his plan is. I know I've been praying that God would make a way for me to be at home with our kids again. Is this part of that plan? I don't know. I will just try to do what I know God wants me to and wait.... God is good even in the valley. :0) I know that he has promised we would never do without. Those of you that know God know what I am talking about. You have probably seen it over and over again in your own life. I know I have seen it countless times. Please just remember our family as you pray.

Hugs to anyone that reads this.

A Very Trying Week and what our future holds....

Ok, Just to let anyone reading this know.....this week has been a very trying one. We have wondered if DH and I would both have a job or not come the end of the week. Contract negotiations have been going on and we just were not sure of our standing. Well, we have heard rumors, we have been told by others that none of us had a job, I have gotten phone calls. One phone call was from a company that is wanting to take over. Very bold on their part to call. So, I have been praying and praying. I don't know what God holds for our future. I can't totally say that I'm not afraid. I do know that we will get through it, God has always made a path. It may not have been the path that I thought we would be taking but it was a path that worked out. So, I'm just trusting that this new path that God has for us will be what he wants.

I checked my e-mail this morning and a friend of ours sent this:

Concentrate on this sentence......

'To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did.' When God takes something from your grasp, He's not punishing you, but merely opening your hands to receive something better. Concentrate on this sentence... 'The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you'

He didn't know what we had going on. Isn't it amazing how God works. So, today even though things are uncertain and I would just love to sit and cry I know we will be carried all the way as long as we are doing what God wants us to do.

Hugs to you all.

Update: The Surgery went well.

Just wanted to update anyone that might be wondering. MG is doing well since her surgery. It only took about 10 minutes once they got in there. Since then she is now sick with a cold and an ugly cough so please continue to pray for her. Some of the other kids are sick and I am getting it too I believe. So, as you pray please keep us in your prayers. :0) Thank you.

Cold weather here. Very very cold!

Warm hugs to all.

Needing Your Prayers for Our 2 Year Old!!

Tonight as I was changing MG's diaper I looked up at her and noticed something in her nose. I got to looking was one of those plastic beads! It was lodged in her nose. I tried getting her to blow her nose and it wouldn't come out. She said it hurt. Well, I called my DMIL and she said to try sucking it out with one of those bulb suringe things.....wouldn't come out. So, I called my DH which was on his way home. He said take her and go........ So, I ran out the door to the urgent care and they immediately took us back. They tried to get it out but she fought so hard that it just made it go further back into the nose.

They decided to call one of the ENT's and thankfully Dr. Dave came in and took us upstairs. With much restraint yet again MG was held down and finally God gave that bead to Dr. Dave! Well, as he looked closer he saw something else. He tugged on it and it wouldn't come out. 5:30 am MG will have to be at the Same Day Surgery to have whatever it is taken out.

Please keep our baby in your prayers. I will be by myself as DH has to be at work. My DMIL will be taking the kids to school for us. Her surgery is scheduled for 7:10 am. Please pray that God will guide the Dr.'s hands and that our precious baby will be ok.

As soon as I am able to post again I will. I just have to make sure she's going to be ok. Thank you all.


Anyone that does Christmas Projects....

For any of you that do any type of projects for Christmas don't forget to check for fabric sales! I got fabric for 61 cents a yard the other day! WHEW! What a nice treat! Needless to say I was very excited!

Hope everyone had a nice Christmas. We did....even though we were all sick with the stomach bug. I can't complain. We were blessed and still are. We are all staying warm and have food in our bellies. God supplies all of our needs and a lot of our wants. He's has been so good to us.

I'll try to post more often, I have just been very busy lately.
