95 days

Well, we are down to less than 100 days until our married life begins, and as everyone has warned – things have gotten crazy. Turbulent rather. On day 99, God threw us a curve ball, one none of us could have foreseen. Sawyer was laid off (along with 1/5 of his office mates) from his job of the past 18 months. Stability is non existent. And nothing is eternal outside God, and the commitment between Sawyer + I.  its been a terrible struggle trying to continue to plan our wedding and hoping that God will provide a position for him. He has spent the last few days searching the internet for jobs + has applied to over 100 positions.

Please pray.

We have learned a hard lesson. Save.  Save.Save.Save. My parents have always said when we were growing up to have atleast 3 months of paychecks in the bank saved away for a rainy day. Well, here is our rainy day, and we surely didn’t have it. Thankfully, his company provided a pension plan, but who knows how long it will be before a position comes up…

I hate these lessons…

In retrospect, maybe it was a blessing in a horrible disquise.
