God has a plan


Well, I must say that God's plans are not always our plans. However, I know that God offers more than we can even ask or imagine. Yesterday I got a call from my boss (which is weird since I am on Maternity Leave) anyway, I answered. I knew that he was not one to just call and chat, so I knew something was up. After some chit chat he let me know that my position was no longer going to be in the budget for 2009. Yeah, nice. I have been having a hard time trying to wrap my head around the idea of going back to work anyway since my little boy has arrived and I have been praying that God would show me what to do or to make an opportunity available where I could work from home. Well, God answered one part of the prayer...I won't have to worry about going back to work, now just for the $$ part of the equation. I am looking for some way to make a little extra money from home, so I am praying that God will open that door and lead me in the right direction. 
I have no doubt that this will all work out because God opened the door for me to be at Bentley exactly when I needed it, and now that he is closing that door I know  that he will provide. Life is such a learning process, and I have learned to take one step at a time. If I get ahead of my self, or try to make my own path God will quickly show me that I can not do it on my own. My goal right now is to enjoy my little boy. Enjoy every moment I have with him and to be thankful that I have this time to spend taking care and loving on him.

Amie, sorry about your job. =( Your mom told me you had been laid off. Job opportunity... the census bureau. They've been advertising it in the church bulletin. A lot of people have gone to take the test, including my mom. Hours are flexible, and money is good. ??? Just a thought. =) God will reward you for putting Liam first!
