    Would like some prayers if possible!

    We have some major decisions to make regarding my job situation and our living arrangements and I am having a terrible time with clarity about it.

    Briefly - we were going to buy my mom's house from her, but that fell apart because she has decided she wants to stay on the property and have us live there too. Not the most ideal situation for us for a few reasons and at first I said absolutely not, but we are now trying to make it work. We have to come up with a way to make an apartment or suite or something on the property or in the house or something so that she and her husband can continue to live there indefinitely, but so that we can have the majority (or all) of the house for our use.

    Cost is a factor, my mom smoking like a dirty chimney is a factor - many things are a factor. It's on the other side of town (about 45 - 50 minutes away on a good travel day) and we really want to be over there, but it's much more expensive there than it is where we live now. In addition, my job has not been ideal for many reasons, but mostly because my income has gone down about $20,000 in the last two years. There is always the possibility it will go up, but it seems like now is a good time to find a new job since I don't make much. It won't be much of a loss financially to go start over. The job I'd like to go for is over by my mom's house - a long commute. If we move in with mom or buy something else, it will make sense, but if we stay here that is a terribly long commute with two young children when I could probably find something more nearby. (And I have GOT to do something job wise because I am just not making enough money - and I don't like what I'm doing. If I loved it or it meant something intrinsically, I would overlook the lack of pay. Instead it's a stressfull, draining job and I'm not sure that I'm really suited for it.)

    I want to do what God wants me to do, but I am having trouble knowing what that is.

    Any prayers would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

    May God guide you in the right direction and give you the strength to overcome any obstacles that you may face with your present and/or new job and present and/or new living conditions.

    As one of the songs my 5 year olds sing in our Sunday School class, "The Lord is good. He cares for those who trust in him."
