Happenings...

So many things have been going on lately. We recently got back from Springfield, MO. Which was a great trip. We headed back to work, my birthday was Friday, and I have been looking for a different job. I just got this job at Lone Star and unfortunately it isn't working out. I am not getting enough hours and I do not like how the co-workers treat eachother. Anyways, I had an interview at Hallmark today. Garrett works at a Hallmark warehouse and his "connection" got me this interview. I am glad to say that I got the job and she actually started training me on the spot! I also go in tomorrow, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday to train. I am so thankful to God! He is so faithful and keeps providing.
I think that Hallmark will have a much better enviornment. I won't have to deal with a lot of swearing, people spreading rumors about eachother nonstop, people coming in to work hung over, and customers drinking and being angry! I didn't like serving people alcohol, because I don't feel it is good to drink (even if you are of age.) I just felt like some of my values were being compromised by working there.

So, I just wanted to take a moment to praise God for all that He has done for me! I really don't deserve it, but He keeps on being faithful...I am so grateful we serve a faithful God!

Anyways, tonight Garrett and me are going to my dad's house for a BBQ to celebrate my birthday that was on Friday. I am feeling a little nervous, because I haven't been to that house since my wedding. I have seen my dad and talked to him, I just haven't been to the house. I hve a lot of hard memories from that house and I am afraid that everything will feel tense being there. God has done a lot in my heart since I have been married: my heart has softened towards my dad and step mom, I am learning to forgive them, I feel like I have a real home for the first time since my parents have been divorced, and I am happy. I just pray that things go well tonight. I am sure that they will, I just tend to worry. I need to hand this over to God and trust Him with it.

Anyways, I just needed to vent a little and update everyone on my endless job happenings... :)

Thanks for listening and I will write again soon!
