Putting Our Eggs in The Basket Carrier

While we’re over here rejoicing that we survived camp week, I have dear friends in the midst of a precarious and precedent-setting job situation.

While praying that Sweetboy would be able to stick it out each day from eight in the morning until five at night, we were also praying that there would be a resolution in this acrimonious situation that our friends find themselves in the midst of. A situation that, supposedly, business schools across the country are intently observing.

Sometimes, it’s hard to realize that there is a whole world beyond what goes on within our Sweetfamily’s four walls.

Despite the media attention being drawn to the circumstances surrounding their plight, our friends have been faithful to pray. And, even though there have been, and continue to be, underhanded schemes at work, I’m asking the God Who Cares About People to make Himself known here.

Would you join me?

I don’t often ask folks to jump on the bandwagon with me. But I’ve watched this family put their livelihood on the line for what they believe to be right.  I’m honored to be able to gather some prayer warriors on their behalf.

  1. This is so very, very sad. Sad because it involves family members (Aurthur T. and Aurthur S.) and now the employees siding for who/what they believe in. Praying alongside you and these employees who are standing up for what is right.

    2 Samuel 22:26
    To the faithful you show yourself faithful; to those with integrity you show integrity. (NLT)

    1 Chronicles 29:17
    I know, my God, that you examine our hearts and rejoice when you find integrity there. You know I have done all this with good motives, and I have watched your people offer their gifts willingly and joyously. (NLT)

    Sorry it took me awhile to respond. I had to do research to understand what is going on with Market Basket because I’m not familiar with them. You are so right….there IS a whole world beyond what goes on within our own walls and we need to be in prayer for friends and others the LORD puts in our paths. I do believe that sometimes He shows us situations like this to help us be grateful that our own problems are so minor in comparison.
