In June, we had to return home. Jimmy lost his job due to a warrant he had to return home to take care of. So we returned, with no solid plans of where to park and stay. With intentions of returning to Carson City when the issues were resolved. well…it didn’t quit work out that way…. because Life changes.
It is now 3 months later, and during the passing time, we began to help the homeless like ourselves. That has sparked a life and feeling of a new love and hope for me. As I help them, I am helping myself while being able to help my new friends. Attend my home church regularly, attend a few different bible studies, and attend Celebrate Recovery weekly! My faith and love for our Heavenly Father has grown beyond words! I am in a ‘WOW’ mode in amazement of how our lives has changed!
A new brother in Christ, has helped with money by having Jimmy do some odd jobs like painting, roofing, etc. That was such a blessing!
Jimmy went to court yesterday, and well, suffice it to say that we will be staying at least a year, probably more!
A brother from one of our bible studies, needed to hire someone at his job, and he called to ask if Jimmy was interested. Are you kidding me? YES,YES,YES!!!!! The normal drug screen and physical, and today, he began his new job!!! His daughter let us buy her car that has a broken CV axle (easy fix) on payments, we were given a gift of money to fix it and get his licenses!! My son, is taking Jimmy to work until it gets the needed repairs.
We never felt a sense of hopelessness, we knew God has a plan for our lives. so we just clunked on…. now the beginning of our new life, a start of obtaining housing (I want to be able to WALK in my home someday) is begining to develop! For now, we are safely parked at a ranch, with loving people around! If housing never comes, or if the job ends faster than expected, whatever happens, with eyes on Christ, and by faith we will endure! Because Life Changes for the better when you have God in it!!
