Pixie Dust and Prayer Request

Hi everyone. Another request for pixie dust and prayers. I know some people have much bigger problems but I'm really worried right now. The company I work forks going through a rough spell and may need to cut some people. The last time this happened I was let go but was lucky enough to be brought back and have worked hard to consistently be one of their top performers. What makes things more stressful is that I'm getting married next week. I'm excited to be getting married and go on our honeymoon, but while we are gone the company will be making decisions about its future. My fiancé and I planned to try to start a family this fall, but will have to put that I hold if I have to get a job at a new company (need 12 months before I could get leave) and I'm reaching that age 35 high risk threshold. I do love the company I work for and have a hard time seeing myself any where else. Please pray that hints work out and we can start our family as planned. I appreciate it.

I thought getting a new box of crayons and a pad of paper was cool...

Quick update - a lot more people took the voluntary layoff than expected, but there will still be some people let go next Wednesday. Wish me luck!

Update - I kept my job! Our team actually lost very few involuntarily. I found out I am very highly "ranked" and wasn't in much danger. I'm definitely motivated to keep working my butt off and stay in good standing.
