Job/family update

I wanted to do a quick update in case anyone has come back from the CrAzY loVe blog party that linny hosted.... We were given our verbal notice on April 6th and were told April 18th we would have it in writing. In the meantime many changes have taken place and I can't but hope that God is moving mtns on my behalf... we were then told Friday we won't know till May 3rd.... I am reminded deep down that this is just as much as the process as the answer for me.. its about me Trusting God and dwelling with Him and not trying to do something on my own. This Psalm says a lot to me, I hope it is good for you as well Psalm 27

4 I'm asking God for one thing,
only one thing:
To live with him in his house
my whole life long.
I'll contemplate his beauty;
I'll study at his feet.

5 That's the only quiet, secure place
in a noisy world,
The perfect getaway,
far from the buzz of traffic.

6 God holds me head and shoulders
above all who try to pull me down.
I'm headed for his place to offer anthems
that will raise the roof!
Already I'm singing God-songs;
I'm making music to God.

7-9 Listen, God, I'm calling at the top of my lungs:
"Be good to me! Answer me!"
When my heart whispered, "Seek God,"
my whole being replied,
"I'm seeking him!"
Don't hide from me now!

9-10 You've always been right there for me;
don't turn your back on me now.
Don't throw me out, don't abandon me;
you've always kept the door open.
My father and mother walked out and left me,
but God took me in.

11-12 Point me down your highway, God;
direct me along a well-lighted street;
show my enemies whose side you're on.
Don't throw me to the dogs,
those liars who are out to get me,
filling the air with their threats.

13-14 I'm sure now I'll see God's goodness
in the exuberant earth.
Stay with God!
Take heart. Don't quit.
I'll say it again:
Stay with God. -The Message

Thanks for stopping by and praying, its not over and I so appreciate you being on this journey with me

Long time no post. Please forgive me.... I seem to spend time updating Facebook and neglecting this lovely blog that has been so important to me...

My dear pal Linny at A Place call simplicity... is having a party. I decided to play... here are a rules..... please do a blog post asking for prayer. In case you are feeling shy about sharing your prayer need, you can start your post by telling your bloggy friends that your post is in response to this Crazy Love Challenge.

My request is pretty simple. April 8th me and my 16 co workers were notified that our jobs were ending in our little town on May 18th. We were all offered jobs in Boise which is 6 hrs from home. We would have to learn a new business and be placed in a call center setting with very strict and unpleasant work issues. Though I am grateful for the continued job. It isn't going to work out for my family. My husband suffers from serious major depression and can't be alone for long periods of time. Moving 6 hours away isn't really an option when we are rooted here, own a home, I own a scrapbooking store and more. There is a chance that I could work just 2 hours away in No Idaho Coeur d'alene and do my same job. Our boss is trying to get some positions approved. My hearts desire is to stay here, make the same or better money and have excellent health insurance. I am open to what God has. My second choice is Coeur dalene and my last choice is Boise during the week and home every other weekend.

I want what God wants. I want His best. I am listening to his heart. It would be such a stretch for us financially to have two places to live. I want to support more orphans and give more to those God wants us too. Just today I stepped out and helped two families... I hope that I was listening to him heart. We didn't have the funds but I knew that I needed to give.

Would you pray with us? Would you pray that a decision would come soon, that there were be Peace, that the Father would speak clearly to my family my management team and more.. Thank you. I look forward to praying with you all playing this Crazy Love game. I can't wait to report back a praise!!!!!
