This Man

Recently my husband and I entered a new arena and season of life.  That of unemployment.  After 22 years of faithful service to IBM, Michael was part of a massive layoff action.  We have had many seasons and trials where we have needed God to perform miracles and meet our needs and we have always found God faithful.  Yet, in the area of employment, we have been quite comfy cozy and so this is a new, uncharted course for us and one which is requiring us to dig deep in our faith once again.

The process of sending out resumes and networking with other people has been an interesting one.  Someone asked me the other day to explain what exactly Michael did for IBM and what type of job he was looking to obtain.  Then she said, “tell me about him, what is he really like.”  So I began to describe him to her from my perspective.  And I realized that all to often we take those we love for granted.  The exercise of describing my husband allowed me time to reflect again on this man I am with whom I’m sharing life.

Just in case you didn’t know, let me tell you about THIS MAN.
