In The Presence of the Almighty

I started this journal to express the many ways my life has been touched since I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord. I hope to share joys, struggles, testimonies and anything I might receive from the Lord. My prayer is that anyone who reads my entries may receive in a way that is necessary for where they are at in life. May the power of the Holy Spirit fill you as you come along my journey.

I am a full time wife and stay at home Mom. I am married to a man who places the Lord first above all else. I am embracing this season in my life to be a Mom and look forward to having more children. My husband and I will raise them in the ways of the Lord.

What a Disappointment!

My rant for the day:

I just found out I cannot have the summer intern position I applied for. Instead of homework, I worked on my resume and cover letter as I need the work and the experience. Reason why I could not get the position? I AM TOO OLD! Yikes! I am only 32 years old, but the cut off for the program is 30. The program is government funded. I mentioned to the woman that it was not fair as I was attending school the same as those that are younger.

On a good note, she commended me on the presentation and work on my resume. She told me she would keep it and keep her eyes and ears open to see if anything becomes available in the church. That is good to know! On another good note, when I met her last weekend she must have thought I was younger than 30...tee hee!

Well, I will leave all this in the Lord's hands. Yes, I am disappointed. However, I know God is in control. I am hoping perhaps that He has something in store. He knows I need the work and experience at this time in my life.

Thanks Jeannie. Last night I just found out that my hours at work are definitely cut, the same for everyone else there. I need a second job. It is not enough to meet expenses.

And we know that God causes all things to work together for good, to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.
You love God. I know that.
And He who gave up His own Son, delivering Him over for us all, will He not also with Him freely give us all things?
I knew there was a reason to put all that work into memorizing Romans Chapter.

I admire your strength and your ability to see some humour out of the situation.

Thank you chicky babe, means alot! I love to laugh, so finding humour in a sitaution comes quite easy. On another note, if I don't laugh right now, it will remind me how bad things are financially, so I choose joy and humour!
