God has blessed me....

God has blessed me with a great job! I am currently employed as an account coordinator for a marketing firm. I am super excited. I am on the phone a lot, but I love the job. I started on Tuesday of last week.
There is so much more I want to say, but all I am can manage at the moment is that I am truly blessed indeed! God is good, and he hears our prayers!

Trusting God

God is teaching me to trust him now more than ever! I am learning to trust God with my family, friendships, finances, my future, and marriage. I have always been so quick to say that I trust God and I put my faith in him, but I am actually learning now that there is so much more to that! I am honestly learning to trust God with everything. I have so much joy now! It is hard to let go and totally let God, but the benefits are so great! I am not saying that I there yet, but I am learning. God is dealing with me, and I am giving it to him! I have always been a planner. My ducks had to always be in a row, and there was always plan to get things done! Well, my friends God has shown me that my plans are not always his plans! There are many things going on right now, but God is in control! Jonathan and I are right where we are suppose to be! Thank God for his love, mercy, and certainly his grace!
Jon and I have talked, and while I have been able to slow down some since I have been laid off; God has be totally revolutionizing my love for him and my relationship with him.
I am not perfect, and neither is Jon, but God is defiantly working on us. He is molding us! Praise God for that! He is so faithful! Praise him for what he is doing in us, through us, and for us!

Happy Valentine's Day

Hey Guys!
Happy Valentine's Day! I know a lot of people do not like Valentine's, but I love the holiday. I am very aware that we are to show the ones we love that we love them everyday, but I love having a holiday to show a little extra affection! So, I just wanted to say Happy Valentine's Day to everyone. Whether you are celebrating or not I hope you all know how much you are loved, and how much your creator loves you! So...relax and enjoy the day!

On the job front....still unemployed...I have sent my resume to so many places, but still no word. I did get a call from American Family Care this week asking me to come in right away to fill out an application and to interview, but the lady doing the interview got tied up and had to cancel. She said she would call to reschedule, but no word yet.
Jon and I are praying that God brings the right job, and we believe that he is our provider so he will meet our needs. He has been faithful thus far, and he will continue to be! We just count our blessing every day for all he has done for us. We are so fortunate, and he has richly blessed us. We hear stories all the time of families that have lost one or more of their incomes, in the process of losing their homes, and who are struggling to put food on the table! That is not us, and we are so grateful!
I trust the Lord, and I know that if he can provide for the birds of the air then he can certainly provided greatly for his children! If you are struggling right now with the economy or just in general, just remember that God loves you and he will always take care of you. He knows your every need, and he does not ever leave you or forget you! God is God, and he will provide!
It reminds me of the song "We are Blessed". It says,"We are blessed in the city, we are blessed in the field, we are blessed when we come and when we go! We cast down every stronghold; sickness and poverty must flee! For the devil is defeated....we are blessed!" Those words have been so powerful for me in the past couple weeks! No matter what happens....God remains the same!

I hope everyone has a WONDERFUL weekend, and I will check back in Monday!

I'mmmmmmm back!

Well, it has been almost two months since I last updated, and a lot has changed! I never went on that Christmas vacation that I had been so excited about. It has been for the best, but a lot happened within a 15 minute time span the morning that we were leaving. Just a few...
  • I got laid off from my job.
  • Sarah Bear (our precious baby) was at the vet, and little did we know that she had been turned lose, hit by a truck, and was no where to be found! Thank God for keeping her safe because the vet had already told us the thought she was dead. She came home a week later bruised, but ok.
  • Blue Cross cancelled my insurance due to a "glitch" in the system.....and so on....

A few other things happened, and so life goes on. I have been looking for a job. I have been putting in several resumes, and i have been on quite a few interviews, but everyone is saying the same thing....we just aren't hiring right now. in a lot of ways things have never been better! Praise be to God!

Well, I just wanted to update everyone...I have not fallen off the face of the earth! Plus, Valentine's Day is coming up...I love that holiday because everything in PINK, and no one complains about it! I LOVE PINK!

So how have you all been? Please tell!
