Title?? I have nothing!

I'm seriously lacking in the blogging department. I have lacking motivation as far as the blog goes. My blogging has been on the decline ever since moving in with my parents, for various reasons. I'm praying for normal again someday. All I can say is that this has not been an easy journey.

On a positive, wonderfully fantastic note, the Hubs will soon be starting back to work!!! PRAISE GOD! Our prayer since he was laid off has been that he would get his old position back and God has answered that prayer!!! His start date will either be May 11th or the 22nd. Our prayer now is that God will show us how we can live on that job alone (outside my parents home). In thinking about this, the thought has crossed my mind, 'Was I really meant to stay home??" Because honestly, I've worked the numbers, and it really seems almost impossible. I know the answer to that question though and I know God will provide. I have no idea how or when though and that is the tough part. And as cliche as it sounds, it's true: I serve the God of the impossible.

He is my hope. He is my strength. I will trust in Him.


And now I must go to bed... I will attempt to post an update on the kids soon. And I use the term soon loosely.

First-yay! for the hubs getting a job!
Second - I am praying for you sweety! I completely understand the fear you are describing. Everytime we "crunch" the numbers, I go through fear, but yet God is always faithful to provide just exactly what we need. I am trusting and believing that He will do exactly that for you.

I am so glad he got the job. God does always provide.....even though we can't possibly understand. We have seen his faithfulness in our lives this past year. The crunching of the numbers is always a scary thing :) Still praying for you.

I am so glad about the job. Robby told us on Sunday. Praying for God's will in your lives! Much love to you all!

You don't know me, but I just wanted to let you know that I am a part of the Leah's recipe exchange and sometimes check out your blog. I said a prayer for you today. I am also a stay at home mom and I know all the little moments that you can't describe to anyone else regarding how precious it is to be at home with your kids. I'm praying that God meets your needs more than you handle! :)

This is similar to the situation we are facing. I really, really want to stay home with the kids, and that has been my prayer, but the numbers just don't work out. Not at all. It's hard to know what the next step is sometimes.
