New Directions

Today I think I must have hacked up a lung due to sinus infection and cried a million tears.

Thank You Jesus for giving someone the knowledge of the Z-pack!  Double dose tonight as directed.

And thank You Jesus for the ability to cry.  I have always been a crier, and there is a good chance I’ll always be a crier.  I know that sometimes people see it as a weakness, I see it as being strong enough in knowing who God is, and who He made me, and to express the feelings I have, so I cry.

Today I gave my notice at my job.  And I think a few people may have fallen off their chairs, including me. It was not an easy decision, one I did not take lightly, but feel that I was completely directed by God to go down a different path.  I look back on 15 years and I could tell you that some of those times were difficult, but most of those times where AMAZING, there are people there that I love more than I could ever say, and this side of heaven, they will never really know how much they meant to me.  You know, I’ve been there a long time, and I have weathered many a storm, and when things get tough, people band together and they pull each other up.  They laugh, and they cry, they encourage other, they eat cupcakes, and sometimes, they just say “suck it up” and move on.  I’ve seen families grow, and sobbed at the loss of our own. Each name forever etched on my heart.  I know that there were days that maybe I wasn’t the easiest to work with, and that saddens me. 

I’ve made countless cupcakes and cakes, and probably, I can tell you everyone’s favorite that I’ve ever made (it really is true).  I’ve been supported and loved for a really long time. 

This job was more than just a place I went to everyday for 15 years, it was a place where I met friends, where God’s provision was super abundant (even in the tough times), it’s where I learned, and man, do I love to learn!

Oh man, today was rough, but tomorrow will be so much worse, I don’t even think I will put on makeup tomorrow. 

I’m so very thankful for the path God has put before me, and I just pray that everyday, in that path, I make a difference towards Good.

I absolutely love your heart of passion for the leading of the HOly Spirit in your life!!! You make me smile, laugh and cry all at the same time! I know this must have been a huge decision, considering all the ends and outs~ trusting that you heard God correctly~
I know today is probably mixed up with a lot of emotions~ but ahhhhh later you will breathe a sigh of peace and gratitude to the Lord for His plan is not always easy but always perfectly hand designed just for you. I have made a couple of huge decisions in my life time and because I knew it was God leading I felt perfect peace and excitement and never once looked back. Keep looking forward to the new adventure~ walk each day as God leads you~ learn and grow~ celebrate this new chapter in your life~ God is for you~
love you much xoxo

As always---I am amazed by your willingness to follow the Lord's lead with complete abandon! I a praying for you as you embark on this new chapter of your life! And as for crying--I love that you equate it to your ability to know who God is---I'm stealing that!--for I am a crier too!
