Lay off and BIG ETSY SALE ~

Just found out tonight that my husband is laid off and
we have no idea how long it will be so we must
really tighten down the hatches big time.
might be a week, or could be longer.
no more spending at all unless it is a necessity.
We have not been laid off in many , many years
and it is a scary thing.
Prayers would most certainly be appreciated .

I have marked almost everything in my Etsy store at 40% off.
{new things that I will be adding this week are excluded}
If there is something you have had your eye on
now is the time to snatch it up.
Thank you and
blessings ~

Sandi- I am so sorry to hear of your Hubby's layoff- I will be praying.

One of the things I said I wanted to do this year was read the Bible thru- a year is too long as I am somewhat ADD so I am reading about 35 pages a day in the OT. One thing about reading this much is the flow and reality of how God always provided for His people- They never went without- manna, clothes and shoes not wearing out- He will take care of you- You are precious to Him!

I am sorry to hear about your husband's job. That is never a good feeling. I worked for a company for many years that went out of business with about 3 months notice. I still had hard times as I went part time before it closed. You are in my prayers!
Hugs, Lisa

Oh Sandi... That adds so much stress to one's life... You and hubby are strong and have faith and will get through this time.... There are several places that are real iffy right now and more may be in the same position... I will be wishing the best for you and add you in my prayers.... Keep your chin up and I know you will come through this fine....
