Beth, thank you so much for your continued support and prayers. We still need them very much. We again thought over the weekend we were able to get things going with this business and got some news just a few minutes ago to put things on hold. So....we are waiting again and are in limbo. I just don't know what we will do if things don't finally come through for us. We have been in dire situations before but never this desparate. Thank you so much. Linda

Linda I too am still praying for you and your husband and am so glad that the work has come through. I will continue to pray for your husbands health and keep you both in my thoughts as well. You are such a wonderful person to be so thoughtful to not want to hurt those who had hurt you and God will reward for your kindness. Stay strong and keep your faith.

linda,
my computer went off today before i could post. i have been praying for you all day. i just got to log back on and what a blessing to see you have such great news. you know JESUS said where 2 or more are gathered in my name, there i am in the midst. well we your friends gathered together in prayer for you and he diffinately let you know he was in the midst. i wish you the best luck with your new business and pray that God will continue to bless you and heal your husband's back. it really shows that you are such a wonderful person to not say anything so as to not hurt your sister when her husband has hurt you so badly. keeping up with your SP program must've been so hard, but yet you have. that is something to be so proud of. emoticon emoticon

Thank you all so much for your prayers and kind thoughts and encouragement. GOD listens....we received good news this afternoon and it looks like the business we have been planning and working on for 2 months is finally coming together and is going to happen.

It means so much to have friends like you who care so much. We appreciate it so much. Thank you. Linda

My heart and prayers go out to you . There is a light at the end of the tunnel....even though you may not see it right now. My husband and I went through something similar in 08-09 and understand greatly. Ours finally is starting to look up after over almost 2 years later and a move across country. Never think that you are alone, we are here for you!

Linda,
I, too, will be praying for you. Know that God cares for you deeply and has not abandoned His plan for your lives. I'm sorry that you are struggling with so many things at once. I pray that you will feel the Lord's peace in the midst of your trials.

Linda,
Most certainly I will pray for you. What a terrible situation your brother in law put you in. When bad things happen our pastor's wife asks us what good can we see through this or what have we learned? I commend you for holding fast to your faith. I'm so sorry that your husband is having problems with his back. Keep holding onto that faith, God never fails. Feel free to post anytime you need us.

Linda, I'm so glad you reached out to us. I'm praying for you and your husband. I know how important hope is and I pray that God helps you to maintain it.

You have done so well and I am really impressed that you have done this with all of the stress.

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to pray for you.

Hello all of my Westie Friends. Hope everyone is doing great. I am writing to you today asking for your prayers. My husband and I need them desperately. A year and a half ago we lost our income. I have never talked about it because it is difficult to talk about. We are self employed and were doing work through my brother in law. After the work stopped, we waited around for months thinking that things were going to start back up. The excuse was the economy and that may have been partly true but it turns out that my brother in law found another company and started using them instead of us. Of course this creates tension and hurt feelings and I can't say anything because I would never do anything to hurt my sister. Then the last part of 09 my husband started having serious problems with his back and we were having to go for injections etc. He will never be able to do the same work again. Things finally ended with our work arrangement with the brother in law so we started grasping at straws to figure out how we would create some income for ourselves. All the while what savings we had has dwindled to nothing.

Please pray for us. We are both so depressed and desparate and need all the prayers we can get that something good will come through for us.

I don't know how I have managed to lose the weight I have lost. I have SP and my SP friends to thank for that. I am not one of those lucky people who lose weight when they get stressed and depressed. Thank goodness for SP! Linda
