Still Numb

I don't know how to write this except to just write it. On Thursday night we had a record-breaking snowstorm for our area, and during the night the snow caused the roof of my husband's cabinet shop to collapse and somehow started an electrical fire. The fire department put it out before morning, but we didn't hear Justin's phone while we were asleep, and we didn't know about it until yesterday morning.

Some of the cabinets, the computer, the van and the covered trailer were, thankfully, salvageable. The main thing is to finish the couple of jobs that were in progress (one of them involves three complicated cabinets that the builder is withholding $45,000 until they are installed). It looks like Justin and his partner may be able to lease a shop from a man in our church to finish these jobs. We were down to almost no money in the company due to this builder refusing to release any money, so it's only thanks to family that we are able to even take this step. We could really use your prayers for strength and peace and hope that better things are coming.



  1. Oh man, that really sucks! Here's hoping you're able to get through it okay.

  2. Goodness I am so sorry! I will be praying for y'all!

  3. Oh Alison, I am so sorry! I will remember to pray! Praise God for the help you've got!

    I've got a stack of cabinets I need made, and am on the search for a good cabinet maker. If you and I didn't live on opposite sides of the world, I'd be calling Justin in a flash!

  4. I am so sorry that you are going through this. I will be thinking of you, keeping you and Hubby in my prayers.

  5. OMG!
    I know such moments...
    *Super Super hugs*

    Keeping you and your family in prayers!

  6. What a scary and devastating thing! I'm so sorry this happened to your family. Look for the silver lining... it's sure to show up when you least expect it. Take care!

  7. Oh Goodness... just getting caught up. Prayers for you! I hope things are slowly bouncing back for your husband's business!
