The Chastisement Ceaseth

I just wanted to pop in for a quick post to thank those of you who offered words of encouragement and, far better, prayers, for the recent plight of my family. 

The great news is that just days after writing it, I got a job offer, and started right away. Through the generosity of friends, family, and even some anonymous donors, we managed to cover our bills and rent for the month so I could get us back on our feet. We’ve of course still got a ways to go, and a number of people to pay back, but I’m happy as anything just to be working again. So much for that whole stay-at-home dad thing. (It was fun while it lasted!)

I’ve been so busy at my new position, I haven’t had any time to read any content here, let alone post. It’s only the let down of the long weekend that’s given me a few minutes while I await my ride. 

So thank you, again. If you’ve been praying for us, we’ve been returning the favor.

    Happy to hear the good news.And, you know, in my own life I have often found out that events that seemed really negative when they happened were actually opening doors to things that were much better. This could be true for you too. Thanks to the Lord!
