Surprise, Surprise!

I got a new job! It started this morning, and this afternoon, i quit my old one! I didn't want to say it before because I showed my coworker my blog once and I don't know if she checks it. No one from my job knew except for my 1 friend. It is such a relief to get away from such a toxic environment.
I am not going to get into detail about my job because it is federal, but I'm sooo happy.

Oh and guess what????

I had gotten special permission to wear a skirt as part of my uniform (you have to have religious reasons). I had worn today a shin-length skirt and an oxford shirt as my pseudo uniform, and as i got measured for my new uniform, the lady asked if i would like my skirt the same length! I said yes, and she said it was no problem. I am SOOOO happy that the skirt is going to be long. You have no idea my relief. I can do my job MUCH easier when i don't have to worry about the wind blowing my skirt, or bending over (even though i bend like a lady), or anything!

And, it's part-time, but the pay is going to equal what i was making full time at my old job. So it's equal, but i will still have more time at home. What a blessing.

I may not be at home, but the Lord provided me with a job that will allow me to have
1) a fresh start, so I will have a worry-free heart
2) more time at home, so i can still enjoy being a mom and wife
3) a step up toward financial independence so that in these unstable times, i can still provide for my family

I thank you all for your prayers, and most of all I thank the Lord.

Thank you Jesus, Thank you!!!!!!!!!!

Wow Lisa, that was quick. It seems that you have blogger etched into your brain. lol.

Ya know Lisa, I read your prayer for me via my phone before i started work today, and i called my dad and asked that he pray for me, and
I truly felt more calm. Not to mention i read the Bible all the way there. Sometimes i have an issue with anxiety, so i prayed to combat that, and the Lord made all the difference, like He always does!

You are such an encouragement Lisa. Lots of love.

Aww, bless you sweetie. I actually am not a huge blogger person uh??? hmmm??? Let me think about that! But I do go where I feel the Lord is leading me.

I praise God for his bringing calm to you when you need it. Pray the Word over yourself. I used to struggle with a spirit of fear from my childhood all the way until about 2000. It's a horrible bondage.

It's such a blessing that you have a Dad you can call to pray for you. I don't have that and now that my Grandpa is with the Lord he was really like my Daddy but I thank God for a hubby who prays hard. Bless you sweetie.
