Getting all the ducks lined up

Jason and I finally found out when we can move in to our new apartment. We are moving on Friday!!! It's very exciting news, BUT we are already needing to look at the next step which is finding jobs. Jason has applied to several retail jobs online and I have just finished my substitute teaching orientation in Independence, MO. However, I still have to wait until all my paperwork and fingerprints clear and once I do begin working, I won't get a paycheck for almost a month after I do any work. This means that Jason needs to begin working as soon as possible. We would really appreciate your prayers!

We know that God will take care of us, he takes care of the sparrows after all (Matthew 10:31). I'm trying not to worry about money, and just trust that God will provide Jason with a job quickly.

In times like these, I like to remember the lyrics of the great blue psalm book Psalty:

I cast all my cares upon You
I lay all of my burdens down at Your feet
And anytime I don't know, whaaaat to do,
I will cast all my cares upon You.

And when I say "times like these" I sing that song in my head every time I lose my keys, which is everyday.


  1. We'll be praying for your upcoming move and Jason's job situation. Please let us know if we can help you guys out in any way!
    P.S. I used to LOVE Psalty the singing songbook!! I'm pretty sure I knew every word to every one of his songs by the time I was 4! LOL I need to find those for Parker! :)

  2. I haven't looked yet, but if I find anything Psalty for my girls, I'll let you know! :)

  3. I googled it and found a site where you can order tons of Psalty stuff! The site is: http://psaltyskidsstore.stores.yahoo.net/index.html
