Change is a good thing, Sometimes things change due to circumstances beyond our control. Sometimes we are resistant to it, but change is inevitable. Our lives go through so many changes that we hardly notice and other times change forces us to do things we were not aware we could.I like change. It means we are growing.

Okay, so what is changing now?

My employment status.

I find I have to leave a job that I have grown to like very much. This job has been an experience I will always be grateful for. I have learned so much about myself. I have been stretched. I have overcome fears, learned a lot of new skills and found that my ability to solve problems and "Get er done" is a amazing quality. I did not always enjoy the work but mostly enjoyed the challenges.

I have also come to know things come in seasons and I was able to fill a need for a season. The season I just came out of can only be described as spring. I bloomed and blossomed and had a few things pruned. All for the better and now I am entering summer. Taking all that helped me grow and am now basking in the sun. I have peace and joy in my life like never before. Not because of where I worked but because of the people I had the privilege to work with.

Pastor Brian took a chance on me. He saw something in me I was not able to see. I have to believe that, other wise I would not have been given the opportunity in the first place. I felt totally unworthy. I said what the heck I'll try it, if you think I can then maybe I can.

I did! I did it well. 50,000 sq ft. and twelve acres. Massive I know, a little intimidating...? sure, impossible?, No. Staying organized and lots of to do lists and en extra pair of eyes helped me get things done. 35 Volunteers helped too.

So now I have the daunting task of finding employment again. I have already filled out three applications and drew up a new resume. I am positive that whatever happens will be for the best. God has this, and I am at peace about the whole thing.
