At the bottom I meant that I don't get the 27,000!

Jeremiah 29:11-13

This is my life verse. I know it is probably the most typical. I use it to remind myself that God is in control, I am not and that there is no point in trying to be. How could I have been so stupid? I use my life verse in all circumstances that I face. I am the one in my family that is the most content and able to rely on God in whatever my family faces. Except in this one area: job searching. As I continued to have doors closed I was the content one. I told myself that God is in control. But deep down I was letting where I wanted to work overshadow what God was putting in place for me. I have only interviewed at 2 places b/c of the approximately 9 grand that I would be receiving at the end of each year for three years to cover my tuition. I would justify it by saying that God doesn't want me to spend my whole life being in debt paying off school loans. I have come to realize that maybe God would rather me work else where to strengthen me in being a better steward with what he has given me and at the same time work in an area of nursing that he had given me a desire and still is that desire before I went back to school. I have realized this and begin to look at other opportunities. I now have an interview for Labor & delivery at the last place on earth that I think I would want to work. But it is in the area of my passion without getting tuition reimbursement, but I remind myself of Jeremiah 29:11 and I know God is in control and will provide for my family. I also know that in everything God works for the good even if it means I get that 27, 000 immediately to pay off my loans. But being a good steward I could still get those paid off in the same amount of time!!

For a Dear friend...

I have a precious friend who will be having her 2nd child in November and her 1st just turned 1. Along with others, I am trying to help win her a double stroller. If you would help out that would be great. just follow these instructions:
1. Go here
2. At the bottom leave a comment with at least a valid email address if you don't blog.
3. If you win, give me the stroller.
4. That's it.
5. Easy enough, right?

Thanks for reading!

Finding a job...

When I say desperately find a new job, I don't mean that I am worrying about it. Bryan is stressing about it, but I know that all things work out for the good... Just like me not being able to take the NCLEX until July 15th. But I am really not stressing out about it. I am leaving it in God's hands. I sometimes just wish He would reach down and smack my husband upside the head!

Why I call this my crazy life...

I just finished nursing school and desperately need to find a job! But before I can do that, I first must make time to study for the NCLEX so that I may practice as a nurse. My life also has to juggle in the fact that my husband for 6 days out of the week leaves for work around 8 am and does not return home most nights before 10 pm. This means that to balance my relationship with Christ, my family, my church, and work something must give. For me that is my housework!! B/c my home is a disaster everyone that lives here is CRANKY (mostly my husband). But what can I say: I am NOT perfect.
