Hey there, dear friends. Still here.
Access ( Budget concerns? Internet is, by practicality, often first to go), time, and inclination are all terribly spotty, but things converged well enough today to try this again.
Just thought I should report things are…well…about status quo.
As much as they can be in this life, that is.
So maybe status quoish is a better description.
My father-in-law is hanging in there pretty well, some rough health issues have developed with my uncle and aunt (my mother’s siblings), my older boys are prepping for their upcoming moves next month, and the nice job we were all set for that would provide stability?
Well, due to some painfully unfair circumstances I care not to go into here, my dear husband recently found the offer very suddenly snatched off the table.
But…we are not wholly without. God always provides, even when it is not the most convenient or pretty picture that we imagined.
Restaurant work has become the main gig now. It was certainly never in my husband’s dreams. The pay and the hours are certainly not the most thrilling. It also is an odd hearkening to the past for me, as this was my first husband’s work prior to the end, where he found the one he was willing to leave me and our kids for.
Now, I am striving to keep proper perspective, lay those triggers at God’s feet, and trust Him with all things.
Trust that one situation is not at all like the other.
It’s hard at times, but so important to both my marriage and my walk with the Lord.
So… that is all to report really. I suppose I could try for profoundness, but my brain is falling short. No message have I save this:
Despite all, in Him, we go on. And all things have purpose, even the ones that are hard to see at present. Gratitude for the way His hand guides must be paramount above all other feelings.
Beyond that…not much to say at present.
I hope you all are doing well.
Blessings and prayers. ❤
