Rumors of layoffs
« on: November 07, 2011, 01:32:06 AM »
Just got out of a corporate meeting on Friday, layoffs going to hit all our offices. Not sure who is going to be axed yet.

If it's going to be me, I am royally screwed and will probably be homeless after my savings is depleted in one month to maintain my decadent lifestyle. Maybe it's for the best.

Anyway please keep me and everyone who is currently employed in your prayers, Lord knows I need more than a prayer to survive maybe mercy so things don't get too bad.

Prayers for our brother and for all whose employment is at risk in these harsh economic times.

Lord have mercy.
He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.

Lord have mercy!
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

To God be the Glory in all things! Amen!

Only pray for me, that God would give me both inward and outward strength, that I may not only speak, but truly will; and that I may not merely be called a Christian, but really be found to be one. St.Ignatius of Antioch.Epistle to the Romans.

I hope the "cuts" missed you.    I am all too familiar with that "dread" feeling.  (goosebumps)

May the Lord have mercy, preserve you and your employment, and help those who find themselves without a job and a means to pay their bills.

Lord, have mercy!
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.

Lord, have mercy!
“But I say to you who hear: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, and pray for those who spitefully use you. To him who strikes you on the one cheek, offer the other also. And from him who takes away your cloak, do not withhold your tunic either.” +Luke 6:27-29
