This morning I was making pot roast in the Crockpot. I do my best thinking while my hands are busy hahaha. Cooking is a necessity for me, not something I really enjoy. When my husband smiles, it makes me happy. I have collected several quick fix, nutritious recipes (I might post some on the side of my blog).
As I sliced carrots and celery, I was thinking about our economy. I mentioned working for The Boeing Company before. The upcoming defense contract cuts are going to raise unemployment and can cause some serious damage in the states. There was a time when Seattle lost so many jobs a billboard was put up which read, "Will the last one out turn off the lights please?"
So, Romney is right, investing in defense helps in more ways than just military status. The fact that Seattle and Boeing, are still here is a good reminder that our stubborn, hard-working people are survivors. We've been here before and we'll get through this. Remember Rosie the Riveter? This was used in World War II and still inspires me. Yeah! I know God, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." Philippians 4:13

Unemployment is hard on people. Even though I've graduated from NYIP, at age 52, I catch myself feeling unemployed. It's different from business for sure, much more relaxing and satisfying. The truth is I have a career, just need to keep at it. I've earned some money so far. "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." Philippians 4:13
My heart goes out to those who are unemployed. I know what it is to have to look through the Want Ads one more time, each day. I contracted a lot, which meant lots of searching between jobs. It's not fun. God hasn't forgotten you, He has a plan. You are not a failure, just out of work. Never give up. We all need to think new thoughts, and come up with creative ideas for careers these days. One guy started a snow shoveling business. He was out of work and got busy shoveling.
3 cheers for the cheerleaders who are putting up banners with Bible verses on them, at football games! That's great! It seems God is getting His Word out in all sorts of places : ) They never thought they couldn't do it, so they did.
