As you may remember, my husband, David, was placed on furlough, with benefits, Feb.25th and was assured it would only be for approximately 2-3 wks. His company was in the process of securing several new contracts and it appeared to be only a matter of time before he would be starting a new project. However, things have not gone so well.
Last Friday, all employees who did not already have an active site to manage were laid off indefinitely AND all benefits were discontinued. Their amazing benefit package included, but was definitely not limited to, an incredible FAMILY healthcare plan provided at absolutely no charge, and a brand new retirement plan they just established and signed employees up for in late January
Today is the end of the 4th week we have gone without David earning any income. The unemployment ‘benefit’ is barely ¼ of his usual bring home pay. He has been scouring Alabama and Georgia for work, but has been unsuccessful so far. We really are trying hard not to worry. However, after his lengthy furlough in November and December, my continued medical expenses, Morgan's college tuition and many other unexpected associated costs, a HUGE jump in our auto insurance premiums after Bekah's accident last Fall, and now this – we have pretty much exhausted ALL our savings. Therefore, it is very hard to fight our human flesh and NOT be a little afraid sometimes.
But we quickly remember that we serve a mighty Lord and we know none of this has taken Him by surprise!! We know scripture tells us that He has a wonderful, amazing plan for us and His timing is impeccable! How awesome is that?? If HE is for us, who can be against us? YES!
Thanks SO much for stopping by and taking the time to read. I know I haven’t been around much lately, but I am trying my best to get better and be here more often. I hope you will continue to keep my family and me in your prayers as we wait upon the Lord.
Thank you so much! Have a fantastic weekend.
