It is hard to believe 1 year ago I was talking to my friend Suzette Allen (amazing photographer BTW ... check her out on the right side) on the phone when Jim walked in the door. He was home about 2 hours earlier than normal from work. I hung up the phone only to have my world turned upside down. Jim was one of the thousands that lost his job. That weekend we had planned to go to my sister and brother in-laws cabin for the weekend. I remember sitting there trying to keep a happy face wondering what life would be like a year from now. Would we loose our home? Would Jim ever find a new job in the economy as bad as it was? I knew God would provide for us, but how? I KNEW I had to keep my faith and not waiver ... but oh the doubts I faced.
1 year later, almost to the exact time he walked in the door, I am soooo grateful. First off to Jesus Christ. He is our everything. Our Rock. Our El Shaddai. Second, to family. They supported us in prayer, food, money, helping Jim out with side jobs, etc. I am not sure how we made it, but we still have our home, and the only thing shut off were our cell phones. We are truly blessed. I remember looking in Jim's eyes and prophetically telling him it would all be alright. And it is. He now has a job that he loves and because he is happy, I am happy.
Lesson to be learned? God will provide for ALL your needs. He is our loving Daddy. I would not want to do it again, but I am very thankful for all the He did for us.
So, moving on ... here is some recent pages I created. ;)
