Every day holds the possibility of a miracle.

  • Sometimes we don't know what path to take next. We are in this situation right now. My husband's company restructured last July and he was let go (along with many other employees). We have been unemployed since July. We own our home, we have four children, one dog, and three cats.
Sometimes I feel like the Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz. She is on the yellow brick road and asks, "Now which way do I go?"  The Scarecrow replies, "Now,  some folks say that-a-way,  but that's a nice way too." What has been amazing about this journey is the people who have helped us along the way. We have experienced true generosity from unexpected places. We have a strong faith in God and our Lord Jesus. We know that He has a plan for our lives. He knows our future and what it holds. He knows where we will land and what it looks like. Since we believe He loves us and cares for us, this helps us have a sweet peace about the whole situation. We have become creative in how we spend our time. The children love having Daddy at home. I do too. He is my beloved, my best friend. I cherish the times I have with him. We are in the midst of a remarkable time. My beloved asked the children if the glass was half full or half empty. They all replied that the glass was half full. I feel that my glass is overflowing. I have my moments where I feel panic. What if we lose our home?! What will we do if we can't pay our bills?!
Most of the time I have experienced a supernatural sense of peace. Our needs have been met. We are still in our home, our children are happy and healthy. We are hopeful for the future. We pray each day for a job. My beloved has been amazing in his search for a job. He is very talented and the company who lands him will be blessed. There are days when we feel discouraged.
There are days when we feel perplexed.
Today we feel hopeful and blessed. Every day holds the possibility of a miracle.

Rebecca dearest,
First, thank you for taking a silly moment of indulgence over at my birthday blog, and secondly, I am a believer as well, a very "colorful" one!!! I love imagining and playing and helping everyone take their minds off of what this world sometimes dishes out.....and I hope you had a little fun, but seeing your reality reminds me even more so to always trust in the Lord and to take His joy. His joy is our strength, isn't it? When both my parents died within 2 weeks of each other, His peace kept me together. There was nothing that could break the protective bubble around me that I literally felt around me.

You will survive, and I would love to know the developments as He takes you towards your needs being met.

Thanks again, and may each moment be filled with PEACE! Anita

Rebecca, The unemployment road is a scary one -- personal experience here:) But it really is true that when one door closes, another opens. And what a learning experience! I've thoroughly enjoyed reading your posts, looking at your gorgeous photos and beautiful children!
