Trying to be Patient

We have received a lot of positive feedback about David going back to school. He is working on getting all of his paperwork in before classes start in early October. We are excited about the new opportunities that it will lead us into.

We are also really tired of him working swing shift right now. The evenings apart are really hard on us. We have lived this way for the last 3 years (except for that one month that he switched shifts before his co-worker quit). There is a person who has potentially been hired from the soon-to-be closing BHU (Behavioral Health Unit at Mercy) but she can't start until they close over there, which is not until the end of October. I say potentially hired because I know that all those people have put in a lot of applications for jobs and I'm sure if she gets a better one, she won't take this one.

I'm not being pessimistic, it is just how things have been going lately and I want to be prepared. I just don't want to get my hopes up. I really miss David in the evenings and I can only imagine how hard it is for him to go in every day, not wanting to be there. I am so appreciative of his dedication. He is looking for other opportunities, and we are trying to be patient.

"From one man he made every nation of men, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he determined the times set for them and the exact places where they should live." Acts 17:26

It helps to learn this verse by heart - it reminds me that God has already determined the exact times and places in my life. Everything from Proudfoot being in Iraq to the next red light. :-)

I hope this encourages you the way it's encouraging me right now.
