Well, we have been bracing ourselves for the effects of the economy on our family. My husband works in construction management, and the job he has been working on for 1 1/2 years was supposed to continue another 2 years. Unfortunately, the project was changed and cut to end in the next couple of weeks.
Cory loves the company for which he has been working. Not only are they a company with ethics and morals, but the owners are friends of ours.
They have been looking for any more jobs for a while now, and as you might guess, nothing has come up. So, this means that Cory is in the process of looking for a new job.
Again, being in the construction industry is not the best market for job hunting right now, but we are trusting that God is going to do something great. He may not provide in exactly the way we would like Him to or in our timing. But, He will provide. We have walked this road before and have been amazed at the way He chooses to take care of us.
It's not a fun lesson of trust, or an easy one for that matter. But...
I have noticed already how God is using this experience in my life to remind me of everything we have and how spoiled I am to live in America. It also has brought me to a better understanding of how much I need my God and how lazy I have been in my relationship with Him. It's so easy to take things for granted when everything is going well and easy. We are reluctantly thankful for this opportunity to learn in the tough times as well.
