i married well :)

for those of you who don't know my husband was laid off 4 1/2 weeks ago. this has been probably one of the hardest times of our lives. it has taught us so much about trusting in the Lord and about giving EVERYTHING to HIM. seth has been so strong, faithful, and diligent through this very hard trial. everyday he gets on the computer and looks for jobs. he has sent his resume out to so many places that we have lost count. he has been on numerous interviews and many we are still waiting to hear back on. i have yet to see him sulk or feel sorry for himself. i think i am doing enough of that for both of us. today i came home after picking the boys up from school and seth had steamed cleaned all the area rugs and carpet in our house. he had also taken the slip covers off of the sofa's and washed, dried, and put them all back on. right now he is outside cleaning all of our windows and screens. what a wonderful husband i have. he has faith that God is going to give him a job. he has been so incredible through this, and i have really seen that i have married such a wonderful man. i am married to a man of God.

my prayer:
dear lord, please bless seth for being so faithful and diligent. please bless him with a job that will be able to support our family of five. thank you for teaching us about patience, trust, and perserverance. thank you for being our provider and our comforter. please help me to be a good wife and mother and to support seth and to be strong for my family. help me to be patient through this very stressful time. thank you lord for my husband and my family. we love you.

Tell Seth that he is more than welcome to come next door and wash some windows :) All joking aside, we are praying for you too and we know that God is trustworthy and faithful and He will provide for your every need :)

seth, i just read this and i'm proud of you. i love you and know God will sustain you and prove Himself to be your Very Great Provider. embrace the pain - rejoice in the trial. you are sharing in the sufferings of Jesus which means you are truly & fully identified with Him!
