I heard this song tonight at LCBC’s christmas service..and for the life of me, I can’t remember the name, but it talks about eternity, life, death, and the beauty of salvation. And I cried..and it was beautiful.

I’m doing ok-I’m looking forward to Linda’s arrival later tomorrow night. She’ll be visiting for a week, so I may not be on here blogging as much as I usually am. I hope to have some FUN TIMES with her and to enjoy the holidays together.

The big announcement: I HAVE A JOB. IT’S OFFICIAL!

In Nov ’06 I took a job doing childcare and other household duties for family friend’s of ours. They had lost their mother/wife/grandmother, who cared for her grandchildren while her daughter worked. She passed from just weeks after her passing, I took a job helping them.

I worked there for just under a year..and now…almost a year after leaving that position, I am going back to work taking care of the children again. It’s an unfortunate irony at our situations, but I think it’s a great move on both of our parts. I love the kids, they’re fun, and friendly, and full of energy and ZEST for life. It’s familiar, and comfortable, and it will be a great transition back to the workin world, part time. I don’t know how long I’ll do it for, but for now, it’s a great fit for both of us.

I am also looking into some other part time opportunities to supplement my part time hours doing childcare, and I think I have a possibility at a really great spot as well. God is working awesome things right now, and opening amazing doors.

I haven’t had much time to focus on novel writing, but I am still plugging away, only 6 pages in though :(. It’s hard to focus and just write. I have to be at a really good spot emotionally to push forward with the memories. It will come in time….

Wishing you all SAFE WONDERFUL travels and a wonderful Christmas holiday. Embrace those around you….and love beyond belief.
