Thanks to all of you who commented or emailed to say you are praying and to ask how Curt's job interview went. My prayer for him was that he would walk away saying that he felt like he did well and didn't have regrets about answering questions a certain way. Well I am happy to report that he said he felt like it went as well as it could possibly go. That's a big praise for me because now no matter what happens he won't be able to wonder if he could have done better, answered a question more effectively, etc. I am thankful to the men in his life who stepped in and prayed for him, offered resume and interview tips, and just encouraged him in general. He received several texts just before the interview from men saying they were praying for him. That was huge. If you are one of those men, thank you.
So now we wait. They said it could take a week or two. We have peace. We feel God's protection and provision. We know He holds us in the palm of His hands and, as several of you suggested, that He has plans to give us a hope and a future. Thanks to all of you who have prayed, written or called. Your care and concern have been a big part of the peace we are surrounded with. Yesterday I put this verse on an index card and posted it on our refrigerator as a reminder during this time:
Isaiah 26:12, "Lord, you establish peace for us; all that we have accomplished you have done for us." (NIV)
