Because life is a series of edits

May Update

In Family on May 1, 2007 at 4:45 pm

Megan and I are currently floating somewhere on the River Denial, just off the banks of the Island of Responsibility. As of today, it’s May, and (as is probably true in your part of the world), May is a month of many beginnings (weddings, events, the summer) and endings (semesters coming to a close, graduations, the spring). In other words, it’s a busy time.

In the midst of this, I’m reminded of what I taught my high schoolers a few weeks ago from Ecclesiastes 3. In it, Solomon says, “For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven.” Our challenge, I told them, is to walk with God through these seasons, choosing to make his priorities ours.

That said, and in the midst of everything else, we wanted to be sure to ask for prayer to this end as the semester winds down. We also wanted to communicate how God has answered your prayers for us (click here for the detailed – and exciting – update). It’s pretty cool.

Thanks to those of you who prayed…and thanks to the God who answers.

  1. are there any things at a temp agency that could work? you aren’t making a long term commitment to anyone, but often you can get your foot in the door with a company that likes your work ethic (very uncommon today to find people that show up, on time and actually WORK!) they will often ask for you with the agency if they have been happy with your work. it’s a tho’t. in different towns, different agencies are better bets than others. usually you will be paid higher per hr. wage than the people with whom you will work b/c you won’t get benefits.

  2. Your thoughts are along the lines of what we’re thinking right now, Martha. In the midst of trying to finish up the semester, I have contacted a couple different temp agencies and set up the required interviews to get on their lists. We’ll see what happens.
