Default What an exciting week

This week is going to be an exciting one.

Hubby had a very good interview today so that's just a good start to any week...

Tomorrow I have an interview for a job that just fell into my lap. Our Pastors wife works at a preschool and they are looking for a Teachers assistant for their tuesday and thursday morning class. The director called me the other day to see if I was interested. She said that Wendy (our pastors wife) spoke so highly of me and felt that I was the right person for the position so the director called me to arrange a time to meet and talk about it. It's only 8 hours a week but it's a few extra bucks that will help out and it sounds amazingly fun. The best part is... Hannah gets to come to work with me for free

I talked to Wendy on Sunday at church and she said the director is super excited to meet me and told me I basically already have the job if I want it lol. so that's very exciting.

Then on Sunday I am getting BAPTIZED!!!!!! SO excited about that. Pastor mentioned that he has some people wanting to be baptized and if anyone else was interested to just let him know. I had been thinking a lot about doing it for a while now even though I was baptized as an infant but I wanted to be baptized as an adult since I've been Saved. So this Sunday is the big day. I can't wait.

Wonder what other wonderful things this week will bring. it is only Monday afterall

Thats so awesome congrats to both of you. And congrats to the up coming baptism, that in itself is super exciting. I'm hoping to get baptized in the future, but have not even started looking for a new church since moving. And I am not looking forward to church shopping.

Thank you

Church shopping can be difficult lol. We searched for the longest time and couldn't find the one I felt was the right one for us. I actually ended up finding this church when I wasn't even looking. My moms group was having a playdate and it was being held in this church. The church is so small that I drove right by it the first time lol. When I finally found it I walked and immediately asked my friend if this was her church and can we come LOL. I just knew as soon as I walked through the doors that this was the church we had been searching for... Hidden in a little converted house behind the Dairy Queen lol.

It's the tiniest church with a small congregation and the Pastor is the most dedicated and caring person and so is his wife. When Brian had his surgery at 6:30 am our pastor met us there to pray with us before he went in. He is so down to earth, funny and engaging.

I always call our church the Island of misfit toys lol. We are a small group but incredibly diverse. We are basically all the ones that didn't fit in anywhere else lol

Good luck in your search. It can be tiring but SO worth when you finally find THE ONE.

Thanks guys Brian has a call back interview tomorrow

it really is an awesome church. We love it there so much. I don't know how many times a week something makes us say "I love our church". We look forward to every sunday.

today at the grocery store we ran into another lady from our church who was really in need of someone to vent to and pray for her and her family. it just felt so good to stand around and talk her down and let her let it all out in the middle of the grocery store parking lot and when she left she felt a lot better than she did going in. Running into each other was not an accident

A little more about my job status....

For the longest time, I coveted my old job. It ruled me. Yes, I was making fantastic money, had good benefits and all that. But it consumed me. It was the primary catalyst for my panic attack. It brought out the worst in me; anger, frustration, impatience, stress... So I just up and quit.

FF to now. After a few weeks of wondering if I made a mistake, it now looks like there will be 3, hopefully 4 offers to choose from, which is another kind of thing to worry about. LOL I figured God would show me the job I was to have by it being the only offer. WRONG. But I reckon its a good kind of thing to have to worry about.

Tomorrow is the interview for the job that I want the most. Its the one that is most nearby and right in the wheelhouse of my skill set. I just need to be wary of listening only to what I want.

Thank you all for the well wishes. I had forgotten how stressful and tedious the job search process is. LOL
