An interesting turn of events

Tuesday and Wednesday were my days off, and that’s when I did all the job hunting I wrote about in my last post.  I believe I have been hired at Tea Thyme In Door County which is owned by the women that live across the street from us.  I’m to meet with Karen on Monday morning at 10:00 to firm that up a bit.  So far, they are talking about needing me for ten hours a week in the mornings.

Progress!

Mark picked me up at work this evening and brought me home.  This is unusual because I have usually been getting a ride home with one of my co-workers named Kat, but she had to work later than me this evening.  Mark had to get back to work after he dropped me off, but first he and I had a look at our back yard.

Almost home!

Last fall, I wrote about how God opened the treasure houses of heaven and showered Mark and me with more blessings than we could have ever imagined.  Money was coming from multiple sources in unexpected ways.  But it wasn’t just monetary blessing.  I’ve been waiting for months to write about what God is doing for us… Continue reading
