Yesterday, along with 500 other families, we were dealt the devastating news that as of the end of January my husband will be without work. We live in a very small community so news of this magnitude will be felt by the entire town. It is so hard to comprehend. When I sat my kids down to tell them I had bad news, my daughter immediately asked “did someone die?”. And right there the hand of perspective is dealt because while this job loss will be far reaching and painful, no one died. Not this time. We will get through this, that I have no doubt, and I draw strength from a God that provides hope in all circumstances.
There is no sense worrying about what we cannot control. What I do have some control over though is my gift closet. It’s gotten a little out of hand as I’ve started to prepare for Christmas and needs a bit of an overhaul. Today I welcome the distraction it provides. I’ll post the after pictures for you tomorrow.
PS: I’ll also be posting the Mr. Linky for Org Junkie’s Monthly Round-Up tomorrow. How are your drawers looking?
