The end of the tunnel

My Summer classes are ending this coming week, and I have two classes left!  The end is near, and I couldn't be happier.  I'm in the process of either going up to full time status at my current job or finding a new one with better pay.  Granted, I LOVE my job, and I honestly believe that I have found my niche, but I must pay bills.  I haven't been too worried about getting more hours the past month or so because of the time I have had to spend on school and homework, but the time has finally arrived.  I'm a week away from needing full time employment.  I am finally in a program at school that allows me to work full time and go to school, so I have been blessed.  I'll never refuse that God had His hand in this.  Despite the crummy situations I've been dealt the past year or so, I know that God will bring me through it, but it's a process.  A process where I'm learning to FULLY rely on Him and His word.  He's got my back.  He is my God!  I am blessed, and please don't ever think I take that for granted.   

On another note, my internet is fixed.  I know most of you didn't know that I even had a problem with it, but I did.  The whole month of July my internet cut in and out, and I couldn't hold a signal long enough to do anything.  I finally got tired of not being able to use my internet, so I called AT&T.  I got a hold of a man from Little Rock, AR.  It was funny because he had such a thick country accent.  The very same accent I forced off of myself when I moved to Springfield so people wouldn't think I was one of those "inbred rednecks from Arkansas."  When he asked for my address so that he could send a repair man to fix our net, I told him I lived in Springfield.  He used to live here too.  He said, "Springfield's a great place to live.  Especially since it's a college town, there are lots of ladies around."  I couldn't help but laugh.  I told him about it being a coincidence that he used to live here because I used to live just south of Little Rock.  He asked me where, and I told him Sheridan (because NO ONE knows where Leola is).  He was amazed.  He then went on to tell me that the neighbor he had in Springfield actually moved to Sheridan before he moved to Little Rock.  It amazes me that we live in such a big world, yet at times like that, it doesn't seem big at all.

I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend.  Blessing to you and your families!

  1. Isn't it crazy how small the world can be at times :) Pretty neat.

  2. So that made me giggle! It is indeed a small yet big world. You are sounding so much better lately. I'm so proud of you. Keep it up sweet girl.

  3. I'm trying to be better--I really am, but it's hard. I just need a big touch from God in my heart and mind. It's great to hear from you! :)
