Bad News

My husband lost his job yesterday.  His position was eliminated.  It was completely unexpected.  I have complete faith that God will take care of us, and he has a plan for my husband's next job.  That doesn't mean that I'm not experiencing a myriad of emotions though.  Fear, anger, bitterness, etc.  I feel so bad for him.  It's so hard for him not to take this personally.  Even though he knows that the economy is still bad, and that he was told that his performance was wonderful, I'm sure it's still a blow to his ego.

I'm trying to get past the negative emotions and move on to the practical matters of tightening the budget, distinguishing our needs between our wants, and helping him look for a new job.

I need to be careful that this stressful situation doesn't become an excuse to use food in ways that food shouldn't be used.  Food is nourishment.  It is not comfort.


  1. I'm so sorry. That's such a hard thing for the whole family to deal with. I can already see how you've turned the situation around by coming up with ways to be positive and helpful. It will work out, just differently that you expected, right?

  2. I am sorry to hear this.
    It will pass, sometimes we do not know what He has planned for us.
    I think he is a very lucky man to have someone so very supportive :) Stay strong, something better is around the corner :)
