Facing the Giants, Part 1

We went to see this wonderful movie last Sunday. Our neighbors had gone on Friday night and came home just "beaming" about it. I've never seen them like they were that night. Anyway, we got our friends together (there were 25 of us) and went Sunday night. It was a VERY encouraging movie and I've been thinking about it all week. The movie is called "Facing the Giants," but I thought it an appropriate title for my entire blog today.

I feel like we've been facing our own "giants" lately. Trying to keep up with homeschooling, parenting, and the past couple of weeks we've been holding down 5 different jobs!!! Yikes! That's way TOO BIG for us puny little weaklings! Fortunatley, we serve a BIGGER GOD! He has seen us through all of this and will continue to work on our behalf. I am thankful for that! He's been working mightily while I was too weak to even blog over these past couple of months.

Last night was my last night at the grocery store. I never did really figure out what food I would be if I could be a food, but I did learn a lot and loved interacting with the people....both the customers and the other employees. I did, however, hate being away from my family in the evenings. I had been praying that God would show me how to get through this time and that it would be temporary and that He would work out something else I could do to help out with the finances and still be home more. That prayer had barely left my lips when I got a call from someone I hadn't talked to in over a year with a job opportunity!!

They tracked me down and found me and I was hired within a couple of days. I will be working for an marketing company for attorneys and will be working with the internet part of that. I am so excited because that means I get to work from home...more money, more hours...flexible enough that I can do homeschool. It seems too perfect. But that is my bigger-than-giant-God for you!!

I accidently posted this before I was finished, but I don't have time to finish it now, so I will just write a PART 2 post later.

Hi, it's Snoskred here. I've recently become a blogging chick and have set myself a challenge to comment on as many Blogging Chick blogs as I can. So that's why I'm here. ;)

The job coming to you as a surprise like that really is very cool. I wish you well with it. ;) Working from home sounds perfect!
