5 Years of 401(k) Contributions - "Poof!"

In assessing the personal damage from the current "World has Changed" events - I realized that the past 2 months have erased (yes - erased) 5 years of contribution to our 401(k). Granted - that's before taxes - but still ... its a shock. And a loss.

That said (and felt ), I bless my God - who is not made of wood or stone, or even precious metals or jewels, or indeed any made thing, rather He is, and He who was, and is, and is to come, and who has provided for me and my family faithfully - beyond anything I can ask or think. And I expect no less of Him in this time.

"Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will keep your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus." Paul's letter to the Phillippian Church, Chapter 4, verses 6 & 7

So we are thankful that in Him we live, and breathe, and have our being. And our meals, and our house, car, dogs, school, music, church, friends, and work. And the living God Himself. We are excited to see the awesome things He does in our lives, our home, and in our community, in the midst these times that will try men's souls. And challenge ourselves.
