It's amazing how our lives can change in just one day. What we cling to for security is amazingly superficial. There has been alot of lay offs at Andy's work. Today a gentleman got layed off who was a good family friend of my family of origin and who had been there 10 years. We never thought he would be layed off but he was. He's in his 50s so starting all over again at a job from the bottom I couldn't even imagine. Just like that, he's gone. I saw the truck he use to drive parked back where there are rows and rows of vehicles that the company isn't using. It struck me as how empty it is what we cling to. Andy and I have said how we'd like to think that his job is secure enough that what he does can't be replaced, but that's just a security we put up in our mind. Whatever tomorrow brings it makes me grateful...
That Andy has a job to go to and that we serve a God that loves us and will provide, even if it's in a different way then we could ever imagine.
That what we see here right in front of us isn't all there is
That God has good things for our lives not based on how we perform but just because He loves us :0)
I'm also grateful that up till now, I have been able to stay home with my kids and I'm cherishing every moment.
