Hope


I decided not to take a picture for the challenge today because I was supposed to take a picture of my phone. I have already done that and I just wasn't "feeling" it!! :) Instead I decided to take a picture of one of my favorite ornaments. I can't wait to move and decorate for the holidays.

Yesterday was a pretty tough day....Eddie lost his job. I wasn't sure if I wanted to write about it on here but I know this project is supposed to document my year--the good AND the bad. Yesterday I was pretty devastated but today I have HOPE. I know God has a plan and He will take care of us. Sometimes we don't understand His plan at first, but He does know what He's doing. :)

Through all this, I pray for patience and for understanding. I also pray that I'm able to be a supportive wife...that I find the right words to encourage Eddie and let him know I am proud of him... no matter what....

Hugs! I understand how devastated you would feel. It's difficult but as always I adrmire your faith and strength to have hope. I am here in the good and the bad...!

Beautiful picture to give you hope as well. And...another hug!

Yes, the timing seems very bad, but as you said, He does have a plan, its just not in view yet, and it is always hard waiting and trying to understand.

Della, I'm sorry to hear your news....I can imagine how hard it was to share with us here...by your words, you've already done the first step in being the supportive and loving wife. You will get through this difficult time. Thank you for sharing with your 365 family. You're in my thoughts and prayers.

I'm sorry to read that--something else will come along, though, it always does.
This ornament is very colourful and pretty.

The ornament is beautiful, and perfect for your title. What keeps me going, through the hard times, so knowing that when God closes a door, he opens a window. Sometimes it takes longer than I think it should for the window to open, but it always does open. I will pray that that window opens soon.
