Thanks to Seniors For Living and their speedy heads up at Facebook on this important news. According to CBS News and their Political Hot Sheet, Obama says he cannot guarantee Social Security checks will go out on August 3, "if Democrats and Republicans in Washington do not reach an agreement on reducing the deficit in the coming weeks!"

Did you notice that it's not just social security – it could impact veterans and disability checks as well! This will certainly add to the stress load of many of us in the Sandwich Generation caring for elderly parents! I'm guessing it will be just a delay but for seniors who are living paycheck to paycheck, that can be so difficult.
This is definitely a time to be calling our representatives, praying for wisdom for all of our government leaders, and trusting God for His provision for our beloved seniors because: "Trust in the LORD with all your heart And do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He will make your paths straight." We may not know what the future holds, but PRAISE GOD, we KNOW Who holds the future!
