    My husband was laid off this morning, effective the ninth of January....HP is downsizing a bit, and he will be out of a job by then!

    Please pray that this experience will help our childrens' faith grow...our eleven year old daughter has alot of anxiety today, though I'm sure she will start to feel better by tomorrow.

    We are in good shape, though, nor mortgage, no debt....I've canned up a storm from the garden, and worse comes to worse my hubby can learn to hunt the game in our back woods, LOL!

    We would appreciate prayer for the Lord to open up another door of employment for him!

    Thank you,
    Your sis in Christ,
    Beth

    Praying God supplies all of your needs. Be blessed you are in the situation you are in. I got laid off in May, my wife lost her job in December 34 weeks pregnant (she starts her new job Monday), and we have a mountain of debt due to business deals.

    Thank you guys

    It is all in the Lord's hands....my husband has been working for 29 years, Digital to Compaq to HP, so for him I think this will be a big adjustment, when it all hits us completely.

    Yes, we will be praying that the Lord will meet all of your needs and that your
    husband will soon get a job.
    God promised that He would supply ALL of our needs.
