My son John was having dinner at James house, his brother, when a storm moved in the roof collapsed my sons are dead. I am so devastated, I can't believe this happened. I was so grateful A few years ago; they helped build an addition to my house.
My hired hands were working in the field on my farm. They were robbed and killed. How could someone do this to me? I had such a close relationship with them that they were like brothers to me I am so sad. I am thankful for their many years of service they have given me. I believe that the Lord will help me find new workers.
I don’t know why the fifteenth of the month is so bad. I was mad when I woke up to find out that all my cattle were gone. First it was my hired hands, now my cattle. Why are people stealing from me? Lord, I don't understand why this happening to me. Then again, I need to remember that they are just animals.
A few months ago I lost my sons. This morning I lost my one and only daughter. At age seventeen who appeared to have died in her sleep. I loved her so much. I'll miss all the hugs and the smiles. I cried all day. I know the Lord will appreciate her sweetness.
It happened on the fifteenth again. I found out today that I have a skin disease. The sores on my body hurt so much. I have a hard time sleeping at night I have had so much pain. I wonder what sin I have done to deserve this. I came into this world with nothing, when I die I won't be able to take my possessions with me. I need to trust that the Lord will get me through this.
Four years later on January 15
My wife just gave birth to a baby daughter on the fifteenth. I proclaim that the curse of the fifteenth is over. Last year on February 15 my son Matthew was born the year before that my son Mark was born. The times have been hard but God has untimely been good. I'm so happy that he has restored me.
