So it’s 4:00 in the morning. I’ve been awake since 2:00. Gave up, got up, and turned on the computer. Yesterday I learned that I lost my job.

  1. Jon, dude, I am so sorry.
    I’ll pray for you and if I can do anything to help, let me know brother.

  2. Jon! No way!! I am so sorry to hear that Bro! Oh man…..:(
    Listen, like Andy said….if there’s anything I can do. I’ll certainly pray for a new job for you. And, may it be an even better one then before !!

  3. Sorry to hear the news. I can relate: I probably will face the same situation soon. Praying …

  4. Oh no! I’ll be praying.
    How much longer do you have at your job? Will you have some time to job hunt while you are still on the payroll?

  5. Wow, Jon. That is truly hard to believe, and I’m sorry to hear it. We still have rumors of layoffs around here at HP on a daily basis. We’ll be praying for you, and like a friend of ours says “sometimes when you pray for bread you get cake instead.”

  6. Oh Jon…I am so sorry. Like a stab to my own heart. Let me know if there’s anything at all that I can do. I will be praying for you, as will the community of the Bridge…

  7. ++Peace is what he needs through this time of unknowns. Light up the road before him to a new place of work and opportunities to glorify you. Help him see the good through the bad…and to know he’s not alone.++

  8. Amen w/ Jeph….still praying Jon…..:^)

  9. Jon, our prayers will be with you too. I’ll be looking forward to seeing what better plan He has for you.

  10. Sorry to hear about losing your job. That swirling in the head crap at all hours of the morning is the pits. I’ll be praying.

  11. Thank you everybody for your prayers and words of support (and phone calls, thanks Jared). I don’t feel like blogging much right now, and I’m not even wandering through your blogs. But I’ll be back before long. After all, I’ll have more time on my hands…

  13. I’ll pray for both of us. My last day was Friday. I thought I was doing just fine with it until this afternoon. I’m lost.
