Uncertainty

There is so much uncertainty in life, so much to worry about. Life itself, even, is so uncertain. We don't know where we'll be tomorrow or the next day or the next. Our little family has been through quite a bit of a uncertainty in the last year, quite a bit of change.

It started with the much-anticipated birth of our precious baby girl, and continued on with hubby losing his job of 8 years just two weeks later. We've struggled through unemployment and the job search, financial insecurity and elation and hope in finding another job. Through it all, there have been constants.

Here is one of those:



Another one is sleeping away blissfully (for both of us) in her bed.

My precious hubby has been a HUGE constant. Despite the fact that most of this has affected him, who he is as a man and a provider, he has continued to be the steady, wonderful man that I am so in love with.

And then, most of all, there was this assurance:



Philippians 4:5-6

Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Praise the LORD!!

Anna, what a wonderful blog entry. It's very insightful and very true. I think everyone can relate to this in one point in their life. It's those constants that make it all worth it though. *Hugs*
