So much & ProgressOh! Spark Giveaway

Wow! It has been quite awhile since I have been on this blog. Hoping to get started back up. A lot has happened since the last time I posted. We sold our acreage of 3 years & went to a small house that we are renting for now. Hubby lost his job, but then found another one right away, which was a huge blessing. Then tragedy struck our family. My brother-in-law & sister-in-law where in a horrible car accident. They both had brain injuries, but my sister-in-law did not make it. We rejoice that she is now in Heaven with her Savior, but mourn at our lose of her here on earth. We as Christians hold tight to knowing that we are not saying "goodbye" but rather "I'll see you soon" At her funeral the Pastor said- "someone is not lost if you know where that person is" We have not "lost" Becca because we know she is in Heaven. Becca will greatly be missed by her Husband of 9 years & her 3 small children ages 7, 4, & 2.
When my husband & I found out about the accident, we immediately went to the hospital to be with them. My husband and I stayed at the hospital for several days. My hubby also called into his work to tell them about the situation. When talking to his place of work, we were told to just keep them updated on when my husband would be able to return to work. Two days later we called again to let them know about funeral arrangements & were told then that he was fired. Since he was fired, we have now decided to help my brother-in-law out as much as possible. Currently my hubby is living with his twin brother & his 3 children to help them out during this time of transition from the loss of Becca. I am staying  home with our 5 kids & let me tell you, it has been quite an ordeal! I miss having my hubby with me, but know his brother needs him more right now.
Even though my husband lost his job from all of this, he had already put in an application at Vermeer and had been given a contract of employment to start on March 4th! We are so thankfully for God's provision for us! Vermeer is an excellent company & by him losing his previous job, my husband can help his brother out without feeling the need to have to go back to work. We also sold our house over a month ago, but received a check in the mail from our homeowners insurance just days before all of this happened! God was & is definitely in control of all of this.
With all this being said, I have a giveaway!! My Blog Spark has given me 2 Progresso soups & a makeup bag! I was very excited about getting this & the soup was amazing!! I tried the new Light Progresso Chicken Pot Pie & Light Creamy Potato with Bacon & Cheese!! I loved the Creamy Potato with Bacon & Cheese!! They also gave me the opportunity to pass this giveaway onto you! With everything that has gone on this past month, I decided to randomly pick someone out of all of my followers to receive this great giveaway!! The winner (at random) is...... Kathy Sothman!! Hope you enjoy your prize!
Thank you all for following my blog & for all of your prayers for my family. We truly appreciate everything!
