a bad winter....

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? 

Sometimes it does feel like His love has disappeared if we only look at our circumstances. We are not being persecuted, we are not naked or in danger and we don't have famine in the worse sense although our circumstances are certainly causing me to have to make different grocery choices than I would normally make, but I do feel like we are in distress. Distress in the sense of work and jobs and finances. The guys have literally worked possibly 2-3 maybe 4 days in a months time. Terry is so stressed and it's affecting his health, Elijah is at the point of trying to figure out if he can keep doing this failing business any longer. The other two son workers are just disappointed because they have bills to pay but since they don't get paid, it's making it difficult for them. It really is a big mess. This is my space on this blog to share and I guess to kind of go behind the scenes and just say "Jesus please help!" I don't know how it's all going to pan out. I am doing the only thing I know to do, pray! Plus I'm trying to find a job. Cleaning houses is something I can do on my own time and hopefully the interviews I have been doing, at least one will be successful. This weather has got to break soon. That's been the biggest hinderence. Winter is the worse for construction i realize that. 8 years ago the guys started this company. It's not been an easy 8 years. There's been more struggle than it flourishing. Maybe 2015 will be the year. The year for it to turn the corner. 

Thanks for praying with us. 

March is here, Spring is sure to come, warmth is around the corner so that is happy news. May the God of peace hold
us and show himself strong. These girls make me smile and help me keep my chin up.

It has been a tough winter for us as well. I pray for for your family as well as mine. Spring will be here soon.

Cindy, praying for all of you. I do believe our blogs are the journals that we can share... I know there is a fine line but it helps to know how to pray and to see that we all struggle at times. I love you. Asking God to open doors and make a way. Asking Him to bless Terry's business abundantly this year!! PLEASE, keep us posted. Hugs
