Where to now, Lord?


My husband learned recently that the company who owns the plant he supervises is closing. They can't run the plant at a loss any more, who could!! When your only making 7 cents per pound on product that takes $'s to process, it makes sense to get out while you can.

The company has been great to all the people, giving them a 2 month notice, paid time off, severance packages and will cash in any vacation time left. I pray that all the people get other jobs easily and that things go well for them, with Christmas coming up it is a scary time to loose a job.

My husband has been offered a possible job in another state, so far we don't know any of the details or if it will be available for sure. He has been asked to stay until the plant is completely closed then oversee the removal of all the equipment, so we have some time to look over the options. I was thinking how nice it would be if God would just write us a quick note, telling us where to go and what He wants us to do. :-) I do know though, that He does have a plan for us and whatever that plan is He will reveal it to us in His time. Faith, Trust and Obey. I don't have to worry or go nuts, just wait. The Sunday school song " Read your Bible pray everyday, pray everyday, pray everyday. Read your Bible pray everyday and you'll "Know, know, know" " keeps going through my head. :-) I changed grow to know, if ya didn't catch it.

So if anyone can spare a few minutes to say a prayer for us we would greatly appreciate it, who knows we might soon be you new neighbors!!! Thanks!! :-D

Good luck! At least it wasn't an unexpected layoff or anything and they want to keep him on until the end! That'll give you guys plenty of time to start looking around! Oh and btw you've been tagged :) Check out my blog!

Thanks! Appreciate the prayers and thoughts. I would love it if he joined the Army so we could live in Hawaii near you, we would probably end up in Germany or something though. That is IF they would even accept my chubby hubby :-) ! Thanks, I'll keep ya'll posted if anything happens.

Wow, Mia and I prayed for you this morning. We will keep praying as you discern what God wants y'all to do. We were thanking God for your friendship and we've never met in person, just through this blog. God has a neat way of bringing people together. Please keep us posted on the happenings!
