Aussie, I have been out of full time work for too long. I have found that God meets all of my needs out of His abundance so I do not worry. I know He will meet all of yours including opening the exact right door for your husband at exactly the right time. Trust in God and He will supply all of your needs.

I showed my husband all your comments and he was quite overwhelmed that people he has never seen or met are there to encourage and pray for him. He said to let you know that he was very grateful and thankful. God bless all of you. Hugs.

Don't give up. I do not do volunteer work, because so many of them could be jobs for people who need to work. Knowing people is the best way to get one, from a friend or someone who knows what you are capable of. tell everyone you know. It is nothing to be ashamed of, it is politics, not a persons fault.

Our Christmas cheer took a beating today. My husband has been out of work for a year and in that time has applied for over 300 jobs for which he was fully qualified. He finally got an interview with Centacare, a Catholic organization here where we live, and was to go in to see them tomorrow at 10:00am. He was absolutely delighted that at last he had an interview. At 3:30pm today they called him and cancelled the interview and said the position had been filled. He came home a shattered man and my estimation of this catholic organization hit rock bottom. It is probably not illegal for them to do this, but I think it is highly unethical.

However, I believe that God has something better in store for him, just have to get over this hurdle and keep believing.

"Why don't you start believing that no matter what you have or haven't done, that your best days are still out in front of you." Joel Osteen

And I am believing this for my darling husband. God bless all of you - hugs all around.

Aussie what a blow to amans confidence, How do they know they have the best man if they do not see them all. I pray that something will come along soon. God bless you both.

I'm sorry that happened to your husband. I've been out of work a lot longer and have applied for way too many jobs than I can count and they always say they always come back later and say they've already filled the position or that they are going with a better fit.

I've had to keep picking myself back up and believe that God has something good in store for me too. God bless your husband and all who are trying to get back to working again. God bless you too and I hope you have a Merry Christmas still. I hope for incredible blessings in 2014 for so many people worldwide.

Dear Aussie and Hubby:
My heart breaks for you. I will pray you find a really good job--but please don't decide not to apply to any more Catholic institutions. You may hit one that is just what you need. I can understand your disappointment but at least they didn't keep you in suspense or pretend that they would still be considering your hubby and waste his time. Another opportunity could be coming which he might not grab thinking the other job would be better. I have had little luck landing jobs and after looking for 6 yrs for a public school job, during which time it was made clear nothing I could do would get one for me w/o political connections--at least in this area--a principal in the Catholic school of our Diocese read my application and called and gave me a job on the spot. My husband also got his job right at the interview which I know is unusual but that is how they operate. On the other hand he thought he had already landed a job and was supposed to have been confirmed in it 2 weeks after they indicated he would get it only to not contact him and when he called them they said he would not get it. It was another Catholic school at the other end of the Diocese. So you see they all operate differently.
I hope this helps.

KNadine, I am sorry for your job search lack of success, too.
For all you puzzlers searching for work--Every night I pray for those who want to work to find jobs. Try and remember the parable of the farmer who hired the crop pickers in the morning afternoon and evening and gave them all the same wage. God knows what you need and will get you there. He feels your sorry at being passed over time after time.

That's sorrow not sorry.
I have to meet with my pastor today about my one hour a week job. I could write a long essay on this telling you my struggle but I will just ask you to remember me--that I speak only the truth with wisdom and mercy.

God works in mysterious ways His wonders to perform.
May you soon look back on this setback as one of those mysterious ways. I pray you will soon be able to say, "We had to go through this and that to reach this positive outcome."

Thank you so much for your kindness and loving thoughts. It is very much appreciated and I will pass all this on to my husband who needs to be encouraged right now. I am so blessed to be amongst such a wonderful group of people. As the song says "you can feel the love". Thank you seems hardly adequate. Here is a virtual hug for all of you.

Is he a handy man? My cousins boyfriend was out of work for a while started to do odd jobs and decorating (he is a highly trained aircraft mechanic by trade) has always kept busy until he finally got a job.

Aussie, may God hold you ever closer in His arms to comfort and strengthen you and your husband. Same to you KNadineM, and Pixipixel. In the meantime, I am sure He is somehow meeting all your needs for His people will never do without.

Thank you nlb. I don't have financial problems but after singing at this church for 7 years it's hard to be told you no longer meet the needs of the parish because paying for the organ (the pastor decided to buy one that was exorbitant) is the important thing which requires having the organ at all masses and no guitar. They have cantors to sing for free. I want to be where I'm needed and wanted and not be removed over a piece of equipment.

Hi pixi, so sorry to hear of the challenges you now face. We can all do without some of them :( Take care and God bless.

Thank you Aussie. I was expecting it but it still hurts. God actually told me in a dream it would happen. I had just hoped the pastor would hold off until the New Year but no such mercy. Your situation is so much more serious. I will offer up my loss for your husband to get a job soon.

Hi Aussie, just read of your heartbreaking experience, my son has been in the same situation as your husband for nearly two years, he was applying for about 200 jobs a week on the internet and any other way he could; nothing much happened. rarely even an acknowledgement, but a friend of his let him know about a vacancy about to come up, he applied, researched, studdied any technical stuff he thought he might need, then did brilliantly at the interview. Jan 6th, he starts work for a decent salary, doing a job he will love with his best friend who he has always called "bruv". Please let your husband know it can really pay to persevere. Take heart and keep on keeping on.

I just read your message to my son (an unbeliever at the moment), and he sends his commiserations to your husband saying he knows how he feels and added that he still can't believe his luck and wakes up every morning thanking whatever is out there in the universe for his luck.....!

Hi megat - thank you so much, I will pass it on to my husband. And will pray for your son that he will come to a personal knowledge of our Saviour. God is good and as my husband frequently says, God is faithful. Hugs.

Pixipixil, did you get a new job?
pixipixil

No. The market for paid singers in the Catholic church is very small. I may just not do this any more. I am saddled with a needy son and will soon have another grandchild whose mother refuses to do housework or take my son around in her car so I have to drive to his place, pick him up and keep grandchild #1 busy while he meets his legal obligations, then take him shopping etc etc. Also help in home renovation. I scarcely have energy for my own home even though he tries to keep things to a minimum. Her family helps by buying her things but she is very demanding for someone who doesn't have any job at all. She didn't start out that way so we are hoping once the baby comes she will do more after the 6 weeks recup (which she will take full advantage of) for her c-section. She bosses him around when she is at the apartment to the point where he is glad when she stays at her mother's so he can get something done or watch a movie he likes. He is paying the piper for the life he has lead but we are also caught up in it. Of course he's no prize to live with either.
Still he's our son and we have to do what we can to help. He has many good qualities, too and is quite handsome. He works full time but only at minimum wage. Thankfully the girlfriend's mother is delighted about the grandchild and has many sisters and sisters-in-law who are just as delighted. They have bought everything under the sun for her and gave her a shower to give her even more.

I'm sorry to hear that. My brother has a wife that doesn't like to work. They've been married for about 24 or 25 years. They met when they were both in the Navy. We actually didn't get to meet her initially because they were both stationed in Australia at the time. When they returned to the United States, they were stationed in Illinois near Chicago and eventually got out of the service but stayed in Illinois.
I think she got out because she was pregnant. She has barely worked ever since. They got into a car accident one time and she claimed to have hurt her back to keep her from working but also has used it as an excuse to really not try to do much of anything else. My brother has had to take on doing everything including work. When my nephew was a baby, he got out of the house several times because my sister in-law would be sleeping a lot. Fortunately, he was never taken away as had been threatened by the police. He is now in the Navy himself.
My brother has long distanced himself emotionally from her but one of the times he was planning to leave her, she got pregnant again to keep him. He has told her that once my niece is out of school (she is now in high school), he will leave. Hopefully, she doesn't try to get pregnant again (she is 46 now so it's possible).

KnadineM, Just how did she ever expect to keep a marriage alive? it takes two.
KNadineM
Mar 15, 2014
Exactly, Barbaranne. It's always been interesting dealing with her. We had to accept her because my brother really loved her at one time and she isn't a bad person. We've all gotten along except at times she could be paranoid when it came to my brother and the kids. I think in her family or where she is from, people might get with family members because she was very possessive of my brother when they would be around us. We're not that type of people in my family. She's also been paranoid that the kids would like us more than her. Again, she can be a nice person though, she just has issues.

I suppose I'm never happy! I am really eager for spring and we still have some months to go. Spring is my very favorite season. Summer is too hot and fall makes a mess with leaves falling and casts a shadow about the coming winter. I'm going to celebrate and really enjoy spring. Join me, please!
