So, yesterday, I engaged in my full-blown pity-party … complete with pj’s, coffee, my bed, and a book. It didn’t last too long because after a while, I just felt like I was wasting time!! 🙂
I had an errand to run – and my husband and I went grocery shopping. During that time, we missed a phone call on the cell phone, which was buried deep in the recesses of my purse. The message was from a location where Daniel had applied for a job – “to please call back.”
This morning Daniel did call … and it was a job offer!! While it isn’t as good of a job as the one here locally that he missed out on, it is a JOB! It is income as well as a foot in the door to an organization that Daniel is VERY interested in working for – somewhere he can fulfill his goal of “making a difference”.
We are getting some paperwork emailed to us later today which will help them evaluate what salary level Daniel would qualify for … and after we hear that, we can accept or reject the position.
Meanwhile, I don’t want to give too much away as things may not work out after all … but just being honest, I think we’re very very very much leaning towards going with this! 🙂 I’m cautiously excited … but also praying that God would show us clearly if this is THE open door He would have us enter. I realize we have the free will to shut the door too – but I just am thankful for the opportunity!
And……….as I alluded to yesterday in my HodgePodge post, this job would involve a move – to not only a different city but a different state! It isn’t a state I’ve ever considered living in … but … after looking up some information about this city, I’m a little excited! It is a university town like the one I grew up in (Knoxville) – and is also in the SEC. This is a BIG DEAL if you are a college sports fan, I guess, and I will have to swear my allegiance to the Tennessee Volunteers if we do end up moving here!! 🙂
More soon … thanks for the prayers on our behalf – we still need to wisdom in making this life-changing decision for our family.
