My daughter got fired today... she just can't keep up physically with the stress and busy schedule. At first she was the assistant, but when the senior accountant left the position, she took over.

It was a good job for her: a small family-owned company, not physical labor, they helped her learn all the "ins and outs" on the job, and she could set her own hours as long as the work got done.

They've been very happy with the quality of her work, and care for her like family, but she can't keep up with the growing demand as the company expands. They've given her a couple of warnings about needing more hours from her, but with this last bout of ill health...

She was upset and sad, as expected, but also relieved in a way. It was hard for her to feel as though she was letting them down.

I KNOW this is a necessary step towards something that will be a better fit for her. Please continue to pray for her! Thank you.

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.
Charles Stanley

For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in

Hello to all my wonderful Spark friends and teammates! How much I have missed you ALL. I havent been online not just not-on-SparkPeople, but not on the computer at all since last Thursday, January 24th.
Ive been very ill with Winter Respiratory Distress Syndrome, i.e. that really bad cold thats been going around. I started with symptoms two weeks ago, but thought I was getting better, so went out on the 25th for a fun time with Kaile. I dropped into bed that night and didnt get up for two days suffering a complete relapse and worse!
Most of the time, Ive simply been lying in bed or sitting in the living room, mentally spacey and physically drained by the simplest actions. These last two days Ive felt a little better, so have been catching up (dishes, laundry, food store, paying bills). Now at last I can face the computer and the 325 messages in my inbox
My next task, after posting this, is to catch up my trackers because, yes, Ive been keeping written records! They are on several scraps of paper, but I stuck to my program as best I could... Started slipping yesterday, so knew I had to get back on Spark a.s.a.p.!
Talk to you soon, Elizabeth

P.S. Please keep my daughter in your prayers! She is now developing similar symptoms, and with her impaired health and compromised immune system, it may become very serious for her. Even the simplest cold can be difficult for her system to handle, so I am very concerned for her. THANK YOU!
