Sharing My Sweet Gifts ~ Prayer Request

Hi Friends!

Oh I was the very happy winner of a giveaway. 
really makes this so special, Vickie is not
only a fellow blogger but she's in a very wonderful
ebay group of girls whom I love dearly.
AND...I have had the priviledge of meeting
Vickie and her sweet hubby Larry this past July.
My hubby and I were in Austin, Texas checking
out a potential business opportunity.  They were
such gracious hosts and we spent a whole afternoon
and into the evening sight seeing, visiting and I
got to see her charming home!
So, without further ado...here's what I received!






Such a pretty Tea Cup for MOI who adores
Tea Cups...and such lovely napkins too!

She wrote the sweetest note in the Kitty Card.




In the past, I have been sharing what my hubby and I have
been going through.  He is still without a job almost 1.5 years now. 
We have had many opportunities open, but alas nothing yet. 

God is so faithful. 
We have been careful savers and that
is how we have been surviving now.  But...our
cobra on our Insurance will run out mid-February.
OH My, this make us so aware of the great benefits
we have enjoyed...and also what is out there for
those like us who are not with a company or employed.
I am more sensitive to those less fortunate.

Would you please pray for a job this year
for my hubby.  I am praying for a miracle.
God KNOWs my specific requests.
He's been by our side.
He' been my constant source of strength.
He's been my ROCK.
He is GOD.
He is in Control.
He loves me and will take care of my families needs.

Thanks so much for your continuing Love and Prayers.

Lorena

Praying for God's perfect will to be revealed to you quickly my friend. He has the answer and they always come to those who wait patiently upon Him.

Your spirit is so loving and gracious my friend. I wish you lived here...we'd have a wonderful time sharing our stories I am quite sure.
