My husband is now working a part-time job in the oilfield, which involves waiting for a phone call and then heading out of town to whatever site needs workers.
This part-time work has turned into a-lot-of-the-time work, so we are able to pay all of our bills and buy groceries and other things we need.
We are hoping (and being told) that this position will soon turn into a full time supervisory role that can be done locally and maybe even from home.
This isn't to say that we are planning our next vacation or buying everyone new shoes, but we are no longer relying on gifts from friends to make ends meet.
There are so many of you who have sent encouraging emails, prayers, gift cards, coupons, diapers, groceries, school supplies, flip flops, and more.
We are so thankful for each of you: Maureen, Linda, Toni, Amy, Joy, Mr. Martin, Dana, Tiffany, April, Nikki, Holly, Jennifer, Little Emma, Emily, Raegan, and many more.
We will never forget this time of difficulty and how you helped us through. You were there for us. You held us up when we were weak. Thank you so much for that!
Now that we are getting back on our feet, it feels so good to be able to buy the things we need ourselves. We have even been able to contribute to others in need!
If you have been moved to help us during our layoff, may God bless you for blessing us! Know that God has been glorified in what you have done for us.
Now, look around for others who need help and bless them in Jesus' name.
