God is good!

Wow...I've been AWOL for a long time! Life has been rather busy...with all the regular daily stuff of work and household chores...and then all the spring chores of mowing, planting garden, etc...and in the time left over, I've still been searching the help wanted ads and sending out resumes hoping to get full-time employment...I've been working part-time as cashier/deli worker in a local market (6 days a week) while looking for something more permanent (if you've recently found my blog, here are a couple of posts reflecting on our situation "Waiting" and "Amazing Grace").

Economic times are tough all around and there are tons of applicants for each open position...I've been praying (along with the prayers of my church family) for a door to open...well, God flung one wide open this weekend! I interviewed for an office position Saturday morning and praise God, they called me Sunday afternoon and offered me the job! Full-time with benefits!

The whole story is a lot more involved--how things came about and other circumstances--but all I can say is that it was definitely a God thing--orchestrated by His hand. It has been a roller coaster ride since last year when hubby lost his job...sometimes hard to keep the faith...sometimes it feels as though we are engulfed in the fog of our circumstances but we can be sure that when we finally step through--back into the sunshine--we can look back and see how God worked for our good and carried us through it all.
This weekend we had one prayer answered, now we're just waiting for a door to open for my hubby--I'm confidant that God has something great in store...we just need to continue keeping the faith! Just wanted to share my good news with you all and also share the following link...I received the following in an email and I realized it is a reflection of my philosophy on life also...choose the good!!!
Help Choosing to Live Fully -- A Kindness Story

Hope you all have a great day--I know I will!
Smiles and sunshine to you...


  1. Congrats on the job! Things always work out in His time!


  2. Glad to see you back!
    Saying lots of prayers for you, hoping that door opens soon!
