I quit my job. Lost more than half our income. BUT! We now have our children on State Assistance and FINALLY got baby Valorie her surgery scheduled. We had to file bankruptcy. We are losing everything except the house. Well...maybe even the house. We are 3 payments behind and we got the forclosure notice in the mail. But it's not over yet. Surgery is the 27th. I am hopeful that everything is going to go smoothly. We have each other and that is all we need. And a nap...
We have been so blessed. I have felt so comforted and loved and sustained through all of this. Prayer, Scripture and going to church has kept our minds clear and has given us peace. I know my Heavenly Father loves each one of us. I know that Jesus gave his life for us.
I think of our bankruptcy. We don't deserve not to pay our debt. But under the circumstances here we are. We have been wiped clean of our debt and our credit.
It made me think of what Jesus has done for each one of us. I do not deserve to have my sins forgiven but it is by His grace that I can repent and be forgiven. Grace and Mercy. I have a new understanding.
I have been given the gift of time. I am spending it on my family. Every last drop of it.
