Layoffs at the company I work for...
« on: January 13, 2009, 05:24:17 PM »
Grace and Peace,

Tomorrow will be layoffs at the company I work for.

I humbly ask for prayers for the well being of all those who might loose their jobs. May God guide us all during this troubled time. Amen.  :(

Lord have mercy!

I know how you feel.  We have them here, ALL the time!

I've gotten to the point that I have a box under my desk and backup my pc every evening....just in case.
It's a rather "unhealthy" environment.  Everyone is so stressed about their job, that their work is suffering.

May the good Lord preserve you and may you retain your employment until the day you choose to change jobs.

You are in my prayers!


Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
—St. Isaac of Syria

Lord, have mercy!

I know how you feel, too. We just received a message from our university's President that the university has to cut its budget by $800,000 in the nearest future, which certainly means layoffs.
