I Didn't Need That!

I was pleased, today, to leave my new job with my first decent paycheck in nine years. However, on my way home, my brother-in-law calls me with the news that his wife has only a couple more days to live. So, I have to give my wife the news when I get home. So, we decide to run to town and pick something up for supper and the serpentine belt on my truck breaks. Guess the devil knows how to destroy a good day!

While you didn't need that, you could have all your troubles and a tiny paycheck.

Maybe I'm a glass half full sort of guy.

I'm sorry Gorges ! Sometimes one tough challenge clears making way for some new ones.
I am really glad that you will be in a far better position financially, as it may be easier to be supportive of family without the worry of finances.
It might also be a good time to start looking at who has good rates on homeowners insurance. There is a very large variation company to company, even when you compare like insurance levels !
I send prayers and good wishes,

I am happy to hear that your job is paying well for ya.
Am sorry to hear the other news.... God has a way in providing for our needs before we know we need it huh? We are very familiar with that concept.
Will pray that your sis in law goes peacefully with no pain...

Hang in there Gorges, you will get though this one.

So sorry about your sad news. Prayers for all.

That is terrible news. I am glad the job is working out OK and maybe it was just the right timing. It may have been more difficult to cover the expense at your old salary. With any luck you will get to put a little away over the next few checks.

You know the verse about the rain falling on the just and the unjust. I don't know how it worked for you but God seems to have a way of giving me flat tires just as I pull into my driveway instead of in the middle of the desert.

Maybe He figured you could afford a problem. Who knows.

Grace and peace.
