Prayer Update

I'm headed out the door but something made me stop and pause a moment. When I read my devotional this morning, I thought about the many prayers being said on behalf of my family for the needs we are experiencing right now.

When we pray for others, we don't always hear when and how God is working. But He is!

I just wanted to share some of the ways He is answering my prayers and yours.

This week we learned that employees who are on COBRA and who were let go during last Sept. through this year might be eligible for a 65% subsidy on their cost for nine months. I happened to read it in the newspaper and I'm pretty sure we qualify. It also will back date to Feb. 17th, the day the bill was put into effect. I pay almost $800 a month for medical benefits so you can imagine the savings!

God is answering prayers in ways we can't even begin to imagine.

Yesterday, we ate out at Red Lobster compliments of a gift card from a neighbor for watching her pets one weekend.

Today another friend is taking me out for lunch for my birthday.

I'm counting my blessings. I wanted to share them with you and also say thank you. The day is quickly approaching when I will be able to announce we are employed again. And it might be closer than I think!

Keep chasing the doubt away and enjoy your day writing!

Happy Birthday! Hope you enjoy your lunch with your friend!

Still steadfast in prayer for both you and Curt for lots of blessings and healings through this time of trials and tribulations. So good to hear that prayers are being answered in His way and in His time.

Terri, this is so wondeful! Testimonies about His work in our lives lift me up like nothing else.

Is today your birthday? Happy Day! I don't want to miss it.

Looks to me like you're fitted well with the hind's feet (hoofs) needed to navigate the high places you're headed. I couldn't be happier, or more grateful. God is so-o-o-o good!

Happy Birthday.

Happy Birthday!
I'm so glad you're able to see how God is taking care of you. Yikes! Eight hundred a month??? Have you guys thought about just a surgical plan? It's good if you don't already have any problems that you'd need full coverage for.
Enjoy your lunch!
