Underground Gardens, Fresno CA
 Those of you who we talk to on a regular basis know that since December Aaron has been looking for a new job. It's been pretty stressful. We have had our ups and downs as we have hoped for certain opportunities to work out only to find that they aren't going to.

While it's frustrating and stressful, it's also a chance to really trust God and what He has for us. There have been moments where I thought (and told people, lol) "If he doesn't get this job I'm really going to wonder where God is in all this!" I have my Debbie-downer moments, but really overall we are both really excited for the future.

The knowledge that this life and these trials and blessings are His very best for us is a constant comfort. In our worldly perspective a trial is never perceived as a blessing, but he know that God's promises are so much better than our own and that we don't always understand what He is doing in our lives until later.

All we know now is that we have much to be thankful for. We are healthy, our kids are healthy. We have a roof over our heads and food on the table. We have friends and family who love us. We have never truly experienced want. Our needs have always been met.

It would be nice to have that dream job, but until then we will be patient and praise God for what we do have.
