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 cancer..so 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.
Congrats on the job! That’s awesome! It seems that God has opened this door for you at just the right time. He really does have an awesome way of working! I hope that you have a great time with Linda while she is visiting and hopefully you both will be able to have a great holiday season. I wish you the best!
Good for you, Brenda. It does sound like the perfect way to ease yourself back into a routine. They are lucky to have you back!
