Mosaic Monday

If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant; if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome.  ~Anne Bradstreet

After three months of being laid off and struggling with everything from the finances to finding another job, my daughter is once more gainfully employed. With a little networking, a few phone calls, an immediate interview and she was hired on the spot Friday and is starting her first day on a new job today. Our God is so Awesome. Lots of prayers went up and God's abundant love came pouring down. A huge amount of Thanks to all those that kept those prayers going up.

  May you be wrapped in a quilt of God's warm blessings until your springtime arrives.
Join me at the Little Red House to visit more blogs taking part in Mosaic Monday.

What a lovely post, Jo! And you're so right ~ our God is an Awesome God! Congrats to your daughter. His timing is perfect but it's so hard to wait for Him sometimes. Glad it all worked out for your family. Thanks for visiting me at Cottage and Creek today.
Bless you ... Lynn

I'm so happy for your daughter. It took my youngest son almost two years to find another job after he was laid off from a health care provider in Sacramento. They had to give up their home, move and start over again.
This economy stinks. Life can really throw rocks sometimes.
I'm so thankful that we had my mother's house for them to live in and that things are getting back to normal. My little family had the faith that was needed to survive a rough couple of years and the ability to see ahead.
I'm still angry at a system that penalized hard working folks and gives money to people who don't work at all.
Thanks for the chance to whine.
You know I love ya,
Ellie Mae
