I have learned a lot over the last few days. For example, I learned how to spell stimulus. It's U-L-U-S.
What I still don't know is if this stimulus package is the right way to go about helping our economy.
And if it's not the best way is it better than any other way?
And if there is another, better way, do we have time to find it before our economy goes into the "tailspin" our new president is predicting.
These are a lot of things that I don't know.
At this point I am just praying that those in power in our government are making good choices that will actually make a positive difference.
Every week I talk to another friend who is getting laid off.
My teenager can't get a job because no one is hiring. And the jobs that are available are going to adults who got laid off from their other jobs. I guess I am scared. This could go really badly.
So everyone please pray for our lawmakers.
Pray for our country.
Pray that the plans that are being made will make a positive difference.
Pray for the people who don't have jobs. I know that harder times are ahead, but I also know that God will take care of his children.
