Needed prayers...

When my dad lost his job at Crown, Cork & Seal (remember, they closed last year) he had much difficulty finding another and eventually ended up with the jail. Well, for those who know anything about him, you know the jail is SOOOOOO not the place for my sweet little dad. He has held his own and is definitely respected, but he always has seen life through rose colored glasses and the jail is changing that. He interviewed for a job at Cintas about 6 mths ago and although they really, really wanted to hire him, something happened corporately and they weren't able to. At that point, they told my little brother, who works at Cintas, that they would find a way to hire my dad. Well, yesterday, they told my little bro that they were calling my dad TODAY! Please pray that the job is something my dad can take! I mean, at this point he would take just about anything, but he has to make more than he does at the jail, otherwise my parents cannot pay the bills. When my dad took the job at the jail he took at 30,000$$ a year pay cut (not that he had a choice... there are no jobs in Abilene) and this last year or two has been very hard on my parents. Anyway, pray, pray, pray...

Praying for the right job with the right pay! I can relate to the struggling to pay the bills. You will have to keep us posted about the job for your dad! Praying!
