On Sunday night, Robb woke me up talking in his sleep. He was talking about work, which has happened before. Insomnia ensued. Which has happened before. What has never happened to us before, however, was that he went to work and found out his company is closing in two months.
I'm not going to be all super pious Christian and say I'm not worried because God will take care of us. I'm going to tell you that I'm really scared. But that I know that God will take care of us.
Over the years, in our ministries, this has happened to folks we know and love. Now it is our turn. Into every life, rain does fall. I'm ok with that.
I don't know exactly what I will be doing soon. I may have to go get a "real job." But for now, I'm going to focus on making and selling what I can. It's the only thing I really know how to do well. I've never had to work outside our home since the kids were born. (I've worked my fanny off FROM home for quite some time now.) I came home from the show feeling like I was going in the right direction...in a direction I could grow and be successful with. I'm going to roll with that for now.
So we begin a new season. One with lots of questions. Lots of unknowns. Lots of dark shadows. It will be interesting to see what the God whom we have served all these years will do to carry us forward. I'm glad He already knows.
