Nathan has been fast and furious in the job hunt and only a few nibbles so far. One of those nibbles was a big fiasco that made us BOTH a big ball of nerves. But, it is behind us now and we are moving ahead.
Nathan's parents have graciously opened their home to us, once again. And my parents offered space in their home, though I'm not sure much is left. We totally appreciate all the offers we have received. We are so excited to live close to our families again.
Living the unknown life (unemployment) is a tough gig. It messes with Nathan's mind. It messes with my spirit. It gives Marley the false sense that both parents belong at home nearly 24/7, and one stares at the computer a good portion of the day. At times it makes us second guess decisions we have made prayerfully. It makes us question the calm, peaceful answers we received.
And yet, those calm, peaceful answers are the anchors that keep us focused on the prize. The prize: A job! Self Reliance! Financial security! Growing our family! Buying a house, someday! Eternal Life! You know. We are always asking questions and seeking direction and I know more answers lie ahead. I have felt us being refined and purified. The Lord is blessing us with humility and teaching us patience. I truly feel that he is answering our prayers and molding our life to make it better than we can make it on our own.
