Finally, suddenly, I have a job that is beyond what I asked for, and that I am completely excited about! I'll be working for a Christian organization in a group home for children and teens with developmental disabilities. The schedule is not what I had hoped for, but Loris and I both feel a peace about it and will just make the necessary adjustments.
A quote I saw on a friend's facebook wall the other day rings true:
"I'm reminded that I am not the author of my life, God is. And when He brings something along that is different than what I would have planned, I know it is the better thing.
Sometimes it's the tension of knowing that without seeing it, but sometimes I think He likes to bless us with something so obviously good and beyond what we were asking. To remind of us - just a little bit - of how much He really is capable of.
And for that, I am so grateful.
