Where do we even start? And the weirdest part is, I am not even talking about the medical stuff.
Friday at work, I found out that the Children’s Director resigned on Thursday effective immediately. Wow. Ok, that probably means more work for my boss, since that is her boss. Then I found out that the youth director also resigned, but he gave them until the end of confirmation which is the 18th of May. (and I was being good and not writing about any of this until today since the kids weren’t suppose to find out until today). Yes, I am still trying to decide what I want to do, but actually neither of these 2 things effect me or my job unless they decide to get rid of our program or something.
Yesterday was our Emmaus Team meeting. Well the one thing we have always known is that Satan does NOT like these weekends to happen, and the one thing that I have learned, the more he fights us, the more that the weekend is going to be amazing!! (and that there are people there who God has plans for!!) With the amount that out teams have been attacked, I am just so excited about the weekend. I can’t believe the last team meeting is over and that there is only 2.5 weeks until we leave. Then they also announced how bad that he is attacking the summer walks. We have not had summer walks in our community for so many years, I know that they are needed so badly, and, like I said, the attack that the teams are coming under is just confirming that fact. They are needing to replace a lot of team members in key positions, so I did send an email and said if she needs me, to hollar… cuz the cool part about me is, I can do ANY job there is except clergy (and it isn’t that I don’t think I could do that one, but I think we could get into a little trouble with the fact I am not even in seminary… but I think I could do a good job with one of their talks!!) Guess we will see what happens. I haven’t even heard anything.
Then today I get to church and found out that our Sr. youth pastor had resigned (I apparently missed the message or something) so our Jr. Hi youth pastor is now the Sr. and he is trying to get it all transitioned nicely and hire a new Jr. Hi youth pastor. I am going to sure miss Pastor Sam, but I know God will definitely use him somewhere. He has gifted that young man, and he can sure preach!! I hope he is moving up in a church where ever he goes!!!
Then the icing on the cake is that Ken has been offered a job. It is with a company he has done freelance stuff for, so he already knows the program, and they had approached him about a year ago, but I don’t think that the time was right. He met with them on Saturday (yes, while I was in Canon City at the team meeting), and then he and I will be going to dinner with everyone from the company tomorrow night. They are a small company (which is a good fit for Ken) and not everyone works here in town, but they are all in town from today through Wednesday, so this worked well.
Ken also has a meeting at work on Wednesday about the job he was applying for. They are currently going through re-organization in their department and everyone is having to apply and interview and the whole nine yards for the positions they want. The job he is interested in would hopefully be a raise as well, but I don’t know. I am just praying that if this is the time for the move, than every door be opened. If this is not, than God please shut every door and make it very clear what he is supposed to do.
Oh, and did I mention, if he takes the new job, yah, he will be working from home. Thus the more motivation for me to get a job OUT of the house or we will end up killing each other!!! (although I have suggested that we make him an actual office in the basement so he can ‘go’ to work… probably even put the door back on down there!)
I got my peony planted today. It is so beautiful outside. I didn’t get any of the rocks moved for my garden today… but that is because I fell asleep. (isn’t that what you are supposed to do on a Sunday afternoon?). All my veggies are starting to poke in. I have them started in the little jiffy gardens in the front window. It is much cheaper this way than buying plants.
So, how was your weekend??? Oh, and I got the RSS link put in the side bar if you want to have my posts in a reader or I think there is even an option to email them to you
