Monthly Update

Hmmm, I'm surprised there aren't cobwebs hanging from the HTML tags here. Has it really been over a month since my last post? I've been letting this and my other blog linger for a while...haven't really felt like blogging. I was sick for a week and, well, I just haven't been too inspired lately.

I got my formal notice the other day that my current job position is being eliminated at the school, so I'll be officially unemployed effective July 1. I've been brushing up my resume and getting ready to hit the road looking for another job of some sort. I'd appreciate your prayers on this matter, I'm afraid I've got a few strikes against me in the job market what with my age and weight. I do have plenty of experience and talent though, so hopefully potential employers will pick up on those.

It's easy to get depressed over a situation like this, and I do have short bouts of it, but overall I think I've been pretty positive about it so far. I'm sure God has something in store for me, I just haven't gotten the memo about it yet.

Well, that's about it for this round.

Al -- I'm sorry about the news, I know that must be a struggle. But I agree with you on a couple of things. You are very talented, and God has a plan for you. I'm praying He makes it known soon. You're a blessing...

Love you brother...

Al, I'll be praying for your job situation as well. I'm living proof that God can bless you with a great job that you never knew you even wanted. I was recently hired as an instructor at Shawnee. I'm teaching two classes a week and so far so good. This allows our family extra income and still allows me to be home with Kendall. I know God will do something similiar for you. You're in my prayers.

If someone doesn't hire you because of your weight and age....well, you just let me know about it. I'll slap them around a bit and bring them to their senses....hahaha! They just don't know what they're missing out on if they don't hire someone with your great talent and charming disposition. ;) You WILL get a job. Just like I WILL get Zoe. The part is the long, long wait!!
