I Did It Again!

I woke up late so only had time for a 10 minute walk but I knew I had to do it. If I didn't I'd risk loosing momentum. I am great at doing something once and then never doing it again. So I broke that habit. Now I just have to be determined to do it tomorrow.

I Did It

Last monday I said I would start walking. I didn't. The other day I saw this on another blog. This morning I got up at 7:30, and before I could change my mind I got up, dressed and quickly walked out the door. I walked briskly for 20 minutes.

It was refreshingly cold. I was glad I grabbed a hat just before I left. We are in the time of year where most of the sidwalks are almost clear of snow and ice and winter coats are no longer needed. I enjoyed it. But I did forget to "walk with the Lord".

At this moment I am determined to go tomorrow. We will see how determined I am in the morning.

I got a new job. Starting April 10th I will be an office assistant. It is a contract job; will run to the end of June. My boss is fine with me going to Winnipeg for a week in the middle of that, which is amazing. With my job I will be traveling to Dryden and I think Kenora, or somewhere like that. It will only be mornings, which leaves the afternoons to homeschool the girls. It just sounds so perfect. It fits my life.

It is definitely an answer to prayer.
Last Thursday morning I was complaining to God about our finances, something I have not done in all the years of financial struggle (and we have been struggling all our married life, more since Barry went back to school five years ago so I have always prayed about it, just not complained, not that I am saying that complaining was good. I don't know what the connection is, if any.) Two hours later the phone rings and out of the blue my old boss from an earlier temp. job calls and asks me to come in for an interview the next day. It was mostly a formality. She acted like I already had the job.

Since I took over control of the finances last fall I have really tried to be responsible with them,
paying tithes, not wasting it on stuff we don't absolutely need, and that means even the little stuff like magazines, candy and chocolate at the checkout. It doesn'’t matter if it is only a few dollars, "do I need it?"”

I plan on carrying that attitude of responsibility to the job.
I will go to work with the purpose to serve my boss, to work as unto the Lord. God does care about me and my and my family's needs but he also cares about souls. This job is not just about me but about those I will be working with.

So I have two weeks to get myself and home together.

My Girls

Bronwyn at 8. She likes Highland Dancing. Here she was on her way to her first performance at a local Celieh.
Sinead, at 10. Too cool for school. This was spring last year, around the time the camera broke. I guess I need to borrow one to get some recent pics.
