If "retired, your prayers to stregnthen my resolve that this God's will for me and that I am able to accept it graciously and with thanksgiving.

Lord have mercy!

I think though, that you have the correct attitude on this situation, given what you have written. If the Lord is arranging things for you to serve Him, I pray you do so with joy!

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Excellence of character, then, is a state concerned with choice, lying in a mean relative to us, this being determined by reason and in the way in which the man of practical wisdom would determine it. Now it is a mean between two vices, that which depends on excess and that which depends on defect.

Glory to God in all things.  I am now "retired " from my previous job and looking for work. Thank you for your prayers about the specific situation and I would welcome your continued Prayers while I start my job hunt today.

Your former employer's short sightedness will be your future employer's gain!

Please keep us informed on developments, as I can hardly wait to learn just where God wants you to be to serve Him!

Joining the roll call of those who are losing their jobs and need prayers.  Mine is ending in August.

I'm still in the upbeat "aw, shucks, everything's gonna be fine!" phase, so I'd like prayers that I'll be able to put that positive attitude to work now so things will be easier when I inevitably start getting depressed about it, say around July.   Shocked

Thank you! And I will pray for my fellow los-ees too!

(P.S. My husband says not to worry and is giving me lots of help.  So prayers of THANKSGIVING also for such a wonderful, supportive husband!  angel)
