    I work at a factory that makes parts for the troubled auto industry.

    So my job has been hanging by a thread the last couple months.

    Went down to 4 days a week, then three days a week...The last couple weeks I have only got one day a week.

    Now basically I am on call when needed, may work a couple days a month if that.

    And to top that off we found out today my wife might have cancer, we will find out more next week.

    I would aprciate any prayers you guys would have for us.

    Thanks

    Jack

    Dear Lord, please give our brother Jack and his wife and family the diligence, courage and the faith that it takes to get through trials like these. In Jesus name I ask, amen

    Jack, my wife Tammy met, fought and beat cancer three years ago. I'm telling you now that it will bring you to the point of anguish and despair, but you must be steadfast in the Lord. There is mighty power in prayer and the good brothers and sisters of the BOC seem to have direct line to God's ear, never doubt it. I think that the good Lord gave cat fishermen a extra dose of patience and yours will be tested to the end brother, and if any one can get their family through this, I think it's you. :wink:

    Life definately does have a way of throwing you curveballs. The most important thing is taking it one day at a time. I can not stress enough how important it is to have a positive attitude when dealing with illness, for your wifesake. I am certain she will need encouragement in the upcoming days. Just remember to make as much of your time together as you can- always not just due to ilness. As people we sometimes get rapped up in the day to day struggles and forget about the truly important things, the ones who love and depend on us. I sincerely hope and pray for a positive outcome in this situation. My prayers are with you.
