~And Now We Know~

Lenox, Georgia
July 6, 2017 6:07pm CST
All of the problems we were having with our truck have now been explained. The radiator in our truck is toast. My husband just called to tell me that... Well, at least we know what is wrong with it. What now? I have no idea. No idea how much this costs, hopefully my husband does. What's that saying? Oh yeah, that's right when it rains it POURS!! At least for us... I need to pray a lot right now, I feel like something is sitting on my chest at the moment. We can't win.

I'm going through the same thing at work right now. When it rains it pours. Seems like I can't do anything right this week. I really hope things will work out well for you and your family. It breaks my heart to hear that things keep piling up on you. You need some good news thrown in there somewhere. I will keeping praying for you.

@LovingMyBabies I just think maybe it's time for a change in jobs for me. Things at my current job will run smoothly for a while, and then all hell breaks loose. Then they'll get good again for a short time, and then go downhill again. It's a vicious cycle, and it's very stressful for all of us. We're continually losing good people who are just tired of dealing with all the crap. I've already lost several great employees in the last few months because they don't want to deal with the stress anymore. Including my boss, who walked out abruptly and unannounced last week. It's just a culture of fear in our department, and that's no way to run a business.

@moffittjc Oh my gosh, I'm so sorry to hear that. =( Maybe it is time to look elsewhere. If you do, I hope you find an amazing job with a whole lot less stress!

Prayers going out maybe could get a cheap one at the wrecking yard or something, probably be a job though in the heat.

I know how that goes as we have been there where every time we turned around we were moving cause of one thing or another & this went on for like 5 yrs I thought we were NEVER going to find a place to call home so I know what your dealing with. just take time to go out side sit by a small fire & put ALL your stress in the fire cause believe me you do this every night the fire takes it ALL away & at the same time talk to god. Take like 2 hrs to yourself & after a bit you will feel the change I did this for like a yr every night that I could & I felt SO much better.

@sugartoes Yeah, unfortunately this has been going on with us for 13 years now. I hope it changes for us one day... I remember doing that at a youth camp retreat and it does help so much! Thanks for reminding me of that. =)

@LovingMyBabies you welcome it has helped me in SO many ways O M G, you get on a schedule with it & like right after everyone (kids) is gone to bed & then you take some time out sit by a fire & put ALL your thought's into the fire & it takes them away. IF you don't have a fire pit here's a EASY/ CHEAP way to make one as long as you clean it after every use the next day & keep it dry it will last you a while. you can get a cheap one at a flea market or scrap yard

Thank you for your comment, you know, I've spent most of my life in the financial dumps off and on. Sometimes it helps every couple of years to just clear out what isn't working for ya, kind of like an inventory. Plus the reality check that most of society is simply just surviving. Not many are thriving. I'm at another rough patch right now (as stated in my post yesterday), but I know that this is just a small moment and things will get better again as we get a bit more wiggle room. Again, thanks for the fire idea, as I do have a fireplace, but can't burn outside at the moment due to the hot dry desert weather in the area.

Radiator is important part. I guess it will cost you bit higher. Not sure though. Hope it will be solved soon with less cost.

With so many people praying He is s sure to know how special you and your family really are but am sure He already knows!mai se m case mamnager to get a heart test and will ask her to pray and my good friend who calls on an almost daily basis who also prays a lot to pray for your family, Both pray really hard and are genuinely good people

I feel for ya'll, Jennifer. We have been faced with almost impossible struggles over the years. The only thing that got us through some of them was trying to cling to the promise in James 1: 2&3. "My Brethren, count it all Joy when ye fall into diverse temptations; Knowing this, that the trying of your Faith worketh patience." That "Count it all Joy" part was awfully hard to do sometimes.

@UncleJoe Thank you. When I prayed last night, I thanked God for the struggles we are going through. It was hard but I know that's what God tells us to do-thank Him for everything.
