No Words

I have been silent in my blog, because I just haven't had words to say. Craig and I have been experiencing some trials - small ones, to be sure, but enough to make it too hard for me to find words to write. I have been given notice that I will be laid off from my job at the end of the school year. I applied for another job, but did not get it after going through two interviews. Craig has had truck problems and it's taken a week to get it fixed. Now that he got it back he's found out that it hasn't been fixed completely. We are so discouraged. We have prayed for my job, and for Craig's truck to be fixed right. So now we wonder, why haven't our prayers been answered? How do we handle the discouragement? How do we have joy in the midst of trials?

And then my dad went into the hospital. He is being treated for dehydration and a UTI. I think he's gettting better, but he has become somewhat confused. It has been so hard to see my dad, once so sharp, so smart now confused. I am hoping (an d praying) that as he heals his mind will clear - and that when he gets back home to his place he will be even better.

God is faithful. He has met all our needs. Craig's truck can be fixed. And my dad knows Jesus - so whether he gets better or not, he's always in God's hand. I will hold on to the One who will not let me go - and look for the ways He will take care of us all.

I guess I haven't checked in here for a while. Sorry to hear all this, but your conclusion of this post is just what it should be. Praying for you all.
