Things continue to be busy around here. Everyone is in school mode. Mariah is a freshman, the Lord has blessed and has allowed her to go here.
Devin is in the 7th grade and still playing the trombone. Hayden is already in the 4th grade. It's so strange to look back to when Mariah was in the 4th grade and she seemed so mature but really, she was just like he is, my baby! I have taken over as Nursery Director at our church. What an honor that the pastor would give me such a job. I'm praying that I will be a good testimony and that it will be a true ministry. My parents, God willing will be here on Sept. 28th for a visit. My sister will also becoming on Oct. 2nd for a few days. We are excited about the days ahead and are anticipating our wonderful visit.
The Lord has answered prayer and I will be going back to work very soon. For the last several years I have been a substitute teacher in our public school system but because of budget cuts, the county is limiting the number and frequency of subs. Last year, I could have worked every day, had a chosen to do so. I was also working 3 nights a week at a restaurant. I quit the restaurant in March because I didn't like being away from my family at night. I have been looking for a job since June. Nothing has come up, I was getting VERY discouraged and wondering why when the Lord knew I needed a job, I wasn't getting one. Yesterday, I was coming out of Wal-m@rt and I ran into the restaurant district manager and he asked me if I was working and I told him I was looking. He said, "You can always come back" I said, "Really, on days in Conyers" and he said "Yes". I'll be meeting with him later today to set up my schedule.
I'm so thankful that even in the valley's of life we can still be joyful. I'm looking forward to a very exciting month.
Oops, I almost forgot, I got to go to San Francisco last month.
