wrapped up

Every night after Aiden's bath I wrap him up "like a burrito". I wrap him so tight that he can not get out of the towel without my help.
This picture of Aiden is how I have felt lately.
I feel wrapped up so tight that I can not get out, on my own atleast. The past few weeks have been so stressful and it's only because of the Lord that I have made it through. I have heard many times God will not give me more than I can handle, so I'm guessing he must think I am superwoman haha. Only kidding, I know I am his child and he has his hands gently on my shoulders protecting me.
So when my hard-working husband called me yesterday to inform me he is laid off from his job, I knew it's because God has a better plan. I'm not sure what that is and I'm not supposed to know these things only God does. I do know that last week before I went on my work furlough I mentioned to a co-worker, "I can not possibly take on anything else right now." God's plan was a little different. I am determined to make it through this rough time and I can't wait to see what God has in plan for my family now. Please pray for us over the next few weeks as we know take on the dreaded job hunt.

Matthew 6:25 "Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes?"
