I'm thankful for my job today . . .
It has been a week! We still only have 4 of us running a 24/7 operation, and one has been calling in sick since Wednesday, I think. So, for now, there are 3 of us covering a 24/7 operation. The other two girls want to work 8 hour shifts, 7 days a week. Well, that's okay I guess for them--one of them works 6-2 and the other works 2-10. The idea of working 10pm-6am 7 days a week with no day off is rather daunting to me. I'd rather work 12 hour shifts and get a day off now and again to catch up on things at home. Sigh. But I guess I'm outnumbered. I know, I know. I just need to trust the heart of God when I can't see the hand of God (I can hear my Momma telling me). God is always faithful, and His timing is always perfect (I remind myself). Even when He waits until I'm at the end of my rope--He never lets me fall off without having a net appear from somewhere. I can see this intellectually in my past. But like the children of Israel, I conveniently forget that in the face of my challenges. And I'm feeling a little challenged. I've been up since 3am and worked from 4:30am to 6pm, and my thought processes are a little skewed. ; ) So, forgive me for whining--I'm mostly just tired and trying to talk my thought processes into working. I really ought to go to bed, but I hadn't written in so long, and I needed to remind myself of a few truths before I attempted to go to sleep. ; )
Please keep John in your prayers as he still has no job--and God is already working miracles stretching my check as far as it goes. But I know God has something in mind for John. I'm just impatient, I guess.
Thank You, God, for the edit buttons . . .
Blessings to you!
"But like the children of Israel, I conveniently forget that in the face of my challenges."
I so understand what you are saying! Like DJG I too hope John finds a great job and your job stress dwindles to none!
"We must be willing to get rid of the life we've planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us."
I had a great little life planned and didn't get it but, this one is so great, I certainly don't deserve it.
I know you didn't plan what you're going through but maybe what looks like the end of the road is just a really tight hairpin turn! Hang in there, it could get really fun in no time!
