    I have found that there are a lot of us, who has or someone in their family that has lost their job or their pay reduced. My hubby lost his and my hours has been cut back. The brigth side of this is that I can send more time learning and chatting with you guys. I turst in the Lord and He and He alone will take care of His childern.

    I feel so blessed when I read how some people are having a hard time. My husband's hours were cut, but so far only by 5 hours a week and we can work with that. When he complained I reminded him that if everyone works 5 less hours a week, that for every 7 people with 5 less hours, someone else got to keep a 35 hour a week job.

    My DH just had a job change - same company, different project to supervise and with it the hourly wage stayed the same, but there is no bonus like on the other project so we are loosing nearly $500.00 a month!

    My husband lost his job almost 3 years ago. I had to go to work while he stayed home with the children. I lost my job, due to company cutbacks, in May. The Lord sent me an angel, a lady who works me two days a week. It barely pays the bills but I'm still hopeful of a full time job soon. The Lord does take care of us even though we are too stubborn to see it!

    I am truly sorry to hear about job losses and cut backs. My dh is working, thank the Lord but his supervisor seems to be on a rampaige writing everyone up for stupid little things like she is looking to fire a bunch of ppl. Bless you all, I hope things get better out there.

    My husband was laid off in May. I have been a stay at home mom for the past 9 year, but am currently looking for work along with DH.

    I feel like I have no skills, since I haven't been employed for so long.
