So far, this is what life has looked like:
All the switchbacks, all the random curves in the road, have led us here. I’m grateful, I really am.
But you know I’m impatient. I want the next step now. And I’d like it to be a step forward, if you please.
So, imagine my excitement when a Business Manager position opened up at a local Christian school. Is this it? A door for us to walk through? It seems a little too simple.
Suddenly, my mind explodes. If Thane got this job, our kids could attend the school at a major discount. We were considering sending them there anyway. And if Thane’s disability comes through, we could have enough money to put a down payment on a house in a cozy neighborhood close to the school. Still within 15 minutes of our church. And our families. We could actually have our life back together again by this time next year! I wouldn’t have to freak out about having to take time off work after this new baby is born.
Ok, this is just a step. We are attempting to walk through the door, and we trust that God will open the door, or close it. I am excited about the timing. It’s always fun to know when there is clear direction from God Almighty. It’s pretty cool.
Thane will apply for the job today. ?? The applying isn’t the nerve wracking part. What if Thane gets the job and can’t work full-time yet? He’s increased his hours at the church, volunteering 3 days this week! 3 hours per day on Monday and Tuesday, and 6 hours today! It’s still not full-time, but he’s only been at it for 5 weeks.
Either way, 2017 is looking up!
