DH has been unemployed for 6 months now. He has sent out hundreds of resumes. He has only had 3 interviews and hasn't gotten any of the jobs. He did get offered an opportunity for a post doctoral temporary position but it is only 6 months. We need prayers so that DH will be able to find a more permanent job after these 6 months. I am terrified that we will go years before DH gets a job. I am terrified that I will have to teach another year...I don't know if I could mentally handle that. We both feel like it is about time for us to TTC but it doesn't seem like it is the best idea at this point. Sorry, I am rambling, but we could use some prayers.

Thank you *kiliki* for my beautiful siggy!

If you had known what life has brought you since your husband graduated, I bet you wouldn't have tried to get pregnant with Marsi. It wouldn't have made "sense" to have her and him be unemployed and you having to work. So even though it doesn't seem like the best idea to TTC #2 right now, if you are both feeling it's time, I'd go with that. Always trust the Lord's timing.

Thanks Heather. Sometimes it is just hard to have faith. We shall see what happens on the TTC front in the next couple of months.

Thank you *kiliki* for my beautiful siggy!

Whenever I find myself in a time of hard trial I always go back to the book of James in the Bible. The Lord gives us trials so that we learn to lean on him more. You have my prayers and I hope you find peace even in trials.
