I am in awe today of how GRAND He is.
I know this is a rare Tuesday post here, but I couldn’t wait!
I think my hubby has finally found a job! A full-time one… with benefits and a set, regular schedule. One that he can still work his part-time job with (although, honestly, I’m praying God still provides a way to do away with that part of the equation eventually… so I can actually, like see my husband from time to time and kiddos can see their daddy!)
He goes to orientation this week then training Monday/Tuesday, then should hopefully start full-time on Wednesday, as long as the other days go well.
I am going back to work.
My previous employer asked me if I would come back temporarily for just a few days a week. After praying about it shortly, I said yes.
Honestly, God had been preparing my heart for this.
It is just through January, and only a few days a week, but it will help our financial situation a lot. And honesty, without going into details, it needed a LOT of help. Not in the least the issue of our poor, limping along vehicles!
So yes, we are celebrating this, even while I’m in a lot of prayer about it. I struggle to handle everything as it is, so adding working 2 days a week to the pile will be… interesting.
But God’s timing is never wrong, and I’m trusting Him to work it all out!
Originally when I accepted, the idea was that Scott would just not work his current full-time job those days. His job was one that is super seasonable, so during late December and all of January, they have hardly any work anyway, so the part-time job would help to make up for the lost income.
So when he got news of his full-time, every day job, that left us with a decision, since we had no one to watch Annabelle those two days that I work.
Well, God answered that one too, like He always does!
A sweet friend of mine who lives just about two minutes from my house has offered to keep Annabelle for me. She has a little boy with special needs as well, so is totally used to giving meds and feeding with G-tubes. She is truly a blessing from God.
I know… could there be MORE??
My book is on sale. The ebook version on Amazon anyway. For $3.99.
And while that is cool in itself, I’ve had this crazy dumb dream (you know me and dreams…) of seeing my book, I really didn’t care which version, to show at some point in the “top 100” of a genre.
Maybe that’s dumb, but I’m a numbers girl, and it was just my personal dream.
And yesterday… would you liked to know what Jesus did in the evening, just as icing on a really cool day?
Yup. #98!!!!!!! (What’s even cooler, is that I looked about 20 minutes later and the #98 was no longer there… SO SO SO glad I captured it when I did, HA!!!)
I guess I need to make a new “dream” now, huh? (thinking maybe the paperback being in top 100 would be cool. or ebook in top 10? a girl can dream, right???)
Regardless… yup, big smile on my face today.
Thank you, Jesus, for much needed smiles.
