Better

Thursday, August 4th, 2011

Thank you for praying for me yesterday! I could tell! I went outside with my Bible and my devotion books and a big cup of stevia lemonade (with ice!). It helped a lot. I’m reading Francis Chan’s Forgotten God and the section I read yesterday said to stop and read John 14-16 and think about […]

Today

Wednesday, August 3rd, 2011

Today I feel like I’m fighting a heavy spirit. I’m asking the Lord to help me trust about the job/ money situation. That seems to be an hourly battle. I feel like I’m carrying burdens about a lot of things and I don’t know why today is harder than any other day. My heavy spirit […]

Job

Wednesday, July 27th, 2011

Well, the job hasn’t started it. I’m fighting worry! It was too wet to be in the fields (farm truck job) and now it’s raining today. The guy said he was definitely bringing Lee on and at the last check in said to Lee that he’d call when he was ready to have him start. […]

Job~Prayer Request

Friday, July 22nd, 2011

Lee had an interview yesterday for a trucking job! They weren’t explicit in saying, “You have the job.” But they said, “If it doesn’t rain, you’ll start on Monday. I’ll call you.” So we’re sitting around waiting for a call and hoping it’s really going to happen. You can pray. This would be ideal. It […]

Overwhelmed

Wednesday, June 8th, 2011

The past few days, I’ve felt so overwhelmed. I’m overwhelmed at the changes I need to make in my own life and actions. I’m overwhelmed at things that James needs to work on. 10 has sprouted into quite an age (oh my!) I sat down with Sonya Shaefer’s Laying Down The Rails book and almost […]

Job Stuff

Wednesday, March 16th, 2011

1. The temp job only lasted for 3 days. It was a check though! 2. The “big” job that would have put us an easy street (ok not quite but….) did not pan out. 3. Lee has an interview tomorrow at a locally owned auto glass company. Praying! 4. He’s applying and applying and applying! […]

Weld Test

Tuesday, February 22nd, 2011

Lee said he feels the weld test went well. He knew all the things he was asked to do. He had to read blueprints and assemble some parts. He said that his booth didn’t have a square (not 100% sure what that is) so he went to the man administering the test and asked for […]

Interview

Wednesday, February 16th, 2011

Lee felt the job interview went well. He did a lot of preparing and studying to make his interview go better. This manufacturer is hiring several hundred workers. So that’s good news right? He is scheduled for a weld test next week. One of Lee’s childhood friends works at this plant. Today, Lee called him […]

The Big Interview

Tuesday, February 15th, 2011

Lee’s big interview is tomorrow. If you don’t mind, please pray for him to do well on his interview. If this isn’t THE job, I’m praying that THE job will show up soon! Thanks for your kindness in praying for us!

Trusting (at Least Trying To)

Wednesday, February 2nd, 2011

This morning, I hung up Lee’s dress shirt. He wore it to 4 interviews last week. We praise God for those 4 chances, but none of them yielded a job. As I hung it up, I prayed for the Lord to help me trust and have peace. Last time Lee was jobless for 5 months […]
