God sure is funny!

To update on the last most recent post... I did not get the job in Knox County. However the following weekend I was presented with another opportunity to use my talents and gifts (if you want to call them that) to work for the Lord. I don't want to elaborate much more on it because I want to be sure it's not my emotions running off with me.

Something else to think about concerning running. I have recently been running a lot. I am probley in the best running shape that I have ever been in distance wise. I am thinking about running my first half marathon next spring/ summer. Any thoughts for those who actually read this?

Waiting Patiently

I was a little apprehensive to post this on my blog because I wasn't really sure who read this thing and who did not. Well... anyway.... for the past two weeks I have been waiting very patiently for the Lord to reveal his future plans for me concerning work. Don't get me wrong, I like my job presently, but recently my sister-in-law called and told me that the state is cutting back on a lot of state grants. Turns out I work for a state grant and since it's a non-profit christian organization, if I loose my job I can't collect unemployment. With all that said, the same day Jenny (sister-in-law) called I also received a call from the Knox County DCBS Supervisor. This is also known as child protective services. She asked for an interview. So I went on February 16th, and am still waiting to hear if I was a candidate selected for hire. This process takes a while because it needs to be approved by the state. To sum it up... I ask that anyone who may read this to please pray for us concerning this matter. I don't know what is going to happen, however I really feel like the Lord has set this up to give me an out before things get potentially bad. It's difficult to be patient in this matter, however I will wait for the Lord to confirm what and where he wants to use me.
