Hubs is an Employee



Hubs has finished the probational period at his job.  He is now considered an employee of a good company with benefits.  Yay!

After 8 months of unemployment we had many things working out for the good.

One nice benefit is that we qualified for the "Make Your Home Affordable" program for our house.

We learned that we can live without many things  we had thought were necessities.

I feel for those still looking for work.  I have a new compassion for them.

Romans 8:28
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him.....

This song has helped me through tough times since 1983.  The words come back to my mind when I  face them.

This is a good song, I haven't heard it before. I'm so glad for your husband's job and benefits! I'm almost afraid to ask, but what are some of the things you discovered you can do without?

i love this song and it has been a while since i heard it. so happy you have an employee in your family. my son lives in rural TN and i do mean rural, as in 30 miles to a walmart or anything else. he was laid off and found nothing for 2 years then found a job for a few months and is now without work. they live on his wife's disability check, or exist is the word. you are right, there is a lot we can do without when we have to

Great news! And, yes, we gain more compassion for others when we've been in their circumstances, be it joblessness or illness, flooding or tornadoes, you name it.

Stacey Dawn said...

Congratulations!!

And, I can relate about learning to live without the things one knew one absolutely needed - til they were gone... ;o)

Glenda said...

Wonderful news, Kim!! Your grateful heart spills over in your words!

I love the Russ Taff song!

Debbie said...

Praises going up with yours!

I came yesterday and left a post, but my computer or blogger ate it just as I was posting. Oh well... it was probably way too long anyway.

I'll summarize by saying that that was one very videos that kept me through our unemployment months. I kept it in my favorites and clicked it regularly. The other one was a Gaither version of "Leaning on the Everlasting Arms."
