The inevitable end...

That's what my husband and I are feeling about his job right now. We need prayers. If you are the praying type, we would so greatly appreciate it if you can keep us in your prayers. I have faith and have been praying and hope that something positive will soon come of this.

My husband didn't sleep good last night. He works in a mall. In that mall were four major store anchors; Macy's, Sears, Mervyns and Gottschalks. We've already lost Mervyns. Yesterday we just got word that as of July 15th, we will be losing Gottschalks. This is why....they're going out of business. Anyone that knows this mall knows that it's already pathetic and slow. This hit will only make it worse.

Not only that, and to keep from saying too much cause my husband doesn't like his business all over the internet, there is a lot of inside issues (i.e. backstabbing) going on in the job that is proving who is friend and who is foe. My husband has continually looked for a job to get him out of the situation he is in and that has proved to be quite the challenge since no one is hiring due to the economy.

I have faith that God will direct us in the right direction. Whatever that may be. I am praying we can get by until things improve in this country. I just can't help but to stress a little. I still am not stressing that much at this point. Again, we have until July 15th until Gottschalks closes. Hopefully the economy will pick up by then and hopefully get another retailer to occupy either Mervyns space or Gottschalks space. Highly doubtful but I'll remain optimistic or just have pure faith in God that we can survive this.

I have high hopes for you guys. Paul has a lot of experience doing what he does...so I believe that he will be able to score himself a decent job. It may not pay as much as he earns right now....but I have faith that he will find something to keep you guys afloat! God always looks after you guys!!
If you EVER feel the need to just talk about your situation, you can always call me, I can totally relate to what you are going through.

XOXOXO,
Linda

Sometimes, faith is all you have, and sometimes, it's all you need. I trust in God that you will be just fine and I will definitely be praying for you and thinking of you. (((hugs)))
