Bear with us

Hey all...okay so obviously this year has started out to be not so good for me with the blogging updates. For those of you who haven't heard, Brock got laid off from his job on the 9th (interesting start to '09).
Well, things are going fantastic! Here is Brock's update he sent out:
"Dear Friends,
Thank you so much for your prayers over the last week! I know that I haven't provided any updates, but that's because I've been SO BUSY with new ventures and opportunities... PRAISE THE LORD!!! God is providing a miracle just as expected and prayed for.
Thanks to your prayers, and the faithfulness of the Lord, my phone and email have been flooded with job opportunities.
As I have been praying, I haven't been hearing, "Update your resume and get a job." Instead, it's been a message of, "Rely on me, and I will sustain you."
On Sunday (2 short days after my lay-off) I was approached with an opportunity to do some sales and marketing consulting for a business owner in our Church. This has gotten my wheels spinning and I'm praying about pursuing consulting as my steady form of income. This obviously carries significant risks, but I keep hearing, "Rely on me, and I will sustain you." So, I've begun this project as a step of faith. When it ends in a few months, I am trusting that the Lord will provide another project or opportunity. So... it looks like I'm self-employed... (gulp)
That leads me to my second BIG request for prayer in the last few weeks. Please pray that the Lord would make this current project a success, and future projects would come quickly. Pray that this transition is smooth for our family, and we work out the logistics quickly.
And... here comes the plug... PLEASE forward my information to anyone you know who could use my services. I'm focusing on innovative sales, marketing, and distribution techniques to help small businesses grow. I've gained a wealth of experience in these areas over the past decade. (Hey, I can't be a sales consultant without selling myself... right?? :-)
But most importantly, please continue to pray for us.
Thanks for your prayers and support!

-Brock Sheets"
Now, I tell you all this because, though having him working from home is a dream of mine, he is hogging the computer! That situation is in the process of getting fixed in the next couple of months, but until then it may keep my updates spotty...I even have a Christmas post ready and waiting for pictures to be added to it...just takes more time than I can have right now.
We'll work it out and you'll have more posts to enjoy soon.
Love to you all and a huge THANK YOU for your prayers!
