My Job

I work in sales. I have worked in the same company for 11 years. I've done a multitude of different jobs. I have loved probably about 10 of the years total that I worked there.

I just transferred to a new group, doing the same thing, just selling to different people, and I have a new boss. It's the first time in 7 years I haven't worked for the same person. I loved my old boss, she was great. but it really was time for a change. I prayed, and I thought there was an open door, and just as I was about to walk through it, it shut. And can I tell you, thank God for closed doors because I have been rejuvenated since being in this new group.

Yesterday was my dad's birthday, and I couldn't go out to eat with them because they left early, and I couldn't leave work. I was bummed but because Phyllis went with them, I worked late. And most people would complain they had to work late, and tomorrow I am going in for an hour or two, and even though I am not paid by the hour, I'm ok with it. I actually left work (at 6:45) yesterday and thought, "man, How blessed am I that I love my job". And in the peacefulness of the parking lot (because only the cleaning people were there), I gave profs to God for leading me here, and placing me exaclty where I am supposed to be.

We got a new VP starting Monday, and it's going to be a time of adjustment, because they all like things a different way, but really, I'm excited. A lot has already happened in 2008, but I am so excited to see the wonders God has in store for the rest of the year. I can't wait to see Him move in BIG ways, and in little ways. I can't wait to see His beauty in sunsets and in macaroni and cheese.

He's amazing, and I am forever greatful for His love. He knows way better than I.

Psalms 20:4 May he give you the desire of your heart and make all your plans succeed.

How much more sparkle reflects off of our glass when we choose to see it as half full? That's the choice you're making and that sparkle is reflective in your writing - how beautiful!
