First of all, I want to thank all of you who have prayed for our family since my husband received his layoff notice from General Motors on Christmas Eve. We have been blown away by the emails, comments, prayers, and well wishes that came to us through cyberspace and humbled by the handwritten notes, store and gas gift cards and anonymous money that we sent into Proverbs 31 Ministries to be forwarded to us. Your prayers and tangible gifts have gotten us through the past three and a half months and have blessed our hearts deeply.
Now….so you can see that God indeed answers prayer. Let me tell you what my handsome hubby did this morning.
Put on a uniform, packed a lunch and headed out the door at 5:00 a.m.
Yep. He got called back to work!!!!
We received a certified letter in the mail a week ago Friday letting us know he was to report back. Seems twice the number of people they expected decided to take a buyout (a new car and roughly $12,000 cash after taxes) to leave GM or retire early. That meant that Todd’s name bumped up the line enough that he is needed back at work.
Now, he just called and has already been told he may only work 2-3 weeks at a time and then be laid off for 1-2 weeks, but he is on the rolls again!!! And, to top it all off, since the economy is so slow, they are only running one shift, so for nearly the first time in 12 years, he will work days. Yipppeee!! We can eat supper as a family like the rest of the world! And Todd will be able to go to the boys’ baseball games too!!!!
We are thrilled!!!
Thanks again to all of you for your care. You mean soooooo much to our family!!
Now, I’m off to start some homemade spaghetti sauce simmering on the stove; Todd’s favorite supper.
He’ll be tired after a full day’s work.
Thank you Jesus!
Sweet Factory-Father Blessings,
