Light at the end of the tunnel?

I see a glimmer of hope at the end of the tunnel. There may be a job for Bear as a Chaplain. Things are still pretty undecided and up in the air, but for now there is hope.

I'm convinced that God never gives us more than we can handle. Yet, it is never an easy road, for what good would an easy path do for you, there would be no growth, no stretching, and no muscle toning.

This past year has been very hard, with unemployment, deaths, reposseessed vehicles, utilities disconnected. But it has also been sprinkled with grace. He has been there in the midst of the storm, gifts from friends, assistance with bills, gifts of food, and much much heartfelt prayers for our situation.

Bear was ordained in February, he graduated from seminary in June and was commissioned as a Chaplain in the Individual Ready Reserve last month.

I'll keep you updated as soon as we know the situation for sure, in the meantime, we would covet yur prayers on our behalf.

I can't imagine the year you have experienced, but I always remember that my mom would respond:
"If God brings you through it, He will bring you through it. " I believe it and try to always hold that thought in my head and heart. I am sending out prayers and hope for all of you.
