    I would really appreciate some prayers from anyone.

    My husband works for a company that hasn't paid us in almost a month now. We maintain two households - our own and his dad's. We're about to lose our house in Montana (the one his dad is staying in).
    Plus the company my husband works for is now about to go out of business. So, more than likely we wont ever see all those paychecks that we have yet to receive...
    Our landlord just recently informed us that he's been seeing a fox on the property (we share about 30 acres with our landlord)...great cause two of our emu babies (of course, the females) have been missing. I had some hope that they'd be back, but now that I know there's a fox....

    So, all of this is really starting to put stress on our marriage as well. For the first year of our marriage, his dad lived with us and my mom (who is fairly crazy...) lived three blocks away. We FINALLY move to Texas, only to have a ton of sudden financial problems happen out of the blue. Somehow my financial aid in college even got screwed up and I owe about $1k to the school. I have artwork in galleries, but nothing is selling. i don't have any friends...I can't drive (random, I know, but it makes feel silly about myself)...I'm living in a weird, metal, science experiment looking dome of a house...and I just can't seem to get motivated to do anything right now.

    I know things could be soooo much worse and that I'm probably getting too upset about all this, but it just seemed like things were going to get easier and better right before we moved =/ Then it all just fell apart...

    And now that I have done something...laundry specifically...all my clothes (and my husband's) has come out pink! GUH! I don't even know what I put in there that caused that. Guess I'll find out in a minute.

    My heart goes out to you. I'm going thru some things myself so I do understand. Keep praying. God is able!

    At this Easter time, please hold fast and keep Believing. God works in mysterious ways and what cen see like an endless dark road can suddenly turn a corner. That might sound trite, it's not meant to do so. Healing via prayer doesn't just have to be just for physical problems, but those of the emotions too. Something will happen, probably in the most unexpected way. It can and does happen, I know because it happened to me. God Bless you, your husband and his Dad. Your prayers will be answered.

    You're in our prayers and thoughts,
