Ask and you shall recieve...

So, I was driving myself nutso last week trying to figure out what I was going to do now that I'm back in Columbia and we're out of the Army life.

I knew from the start that I would need to find a full time job to help support our lifestyle...so I pulled out the old resume gave it a little polishing and updating and put it out there for Columbia to see. My first interview was yesterday and while it went well...I know in my heart it is not what I want to do. I'm tired of retail...I want to do more with my major. I want to use my creativity. The interview was for a management position with Pier 1.
During our Super Bowl party I was talking about how I was currently job searching and a friend started telling me about her job and how they are looking for new people. I sent her company my resume and so far they have liked what they have read...so I am excited to interview with them in the up coming weeks (hopefully soon!!). I was really looking forward to the possibilty of that job when I woke up this morning and my old supervisor from The State had emailed me saying "YOU MUST COME BACK!!!" Now, I loved working for The State....but not because I enjoyed my job so much but because I LOVED my co-workers and my supervisor is THE BEST...so I promised her I would come in tomorrow and talk to them about my possibly coming back. **sigh** God is Great, he has really started opening doors for me...now I just need his guidance in WHAT door to walk through. I don't want to disapoint my old supervisor, she is SUCH a sweet, awesome person to work with...but this other job would be new and I could learn a different career field. On top of these two jobs I also got another email from another potential employer, its another account executive position (same as what I did at The State) but its a different product...so it would be all new people, same type job just a different product....what to do what to do.

Well, whatever happens I am TRUELY blessed to be a christian living in America...why?? because I have the CHOICE to choose one of these jobs and I have GOD leading the way............what could be better??

God is Good

Same here! Keith and I got the note last night and we really appreciated both the note from Ali and the note from you and Sev. We can't wait to see you guys in TWO weeks! :) It's so surreal to have you BOTH home! Ok, I gotta stop or I will cry.
