So, where to begin? Where to begin?
My family and I were totally kept safe from Sandy. Our lights flickered a bit, but that's as bad as it got. We feel truly fortunate and grateful considering the horror stories we've heard in the news. Cities near both us and family members were flooded or experienced devastating damages, but we feel like we were kept in a safe, little pocket. I humbly thank the Lord and I pray for God to help all those who have suffered because of Sandy.
So, I told my supervisor that I might be interviewing for another position within the company. The next day, she and several higher-up supervisors asked to meet with me. They told me they really liked me, that I did excellent work, and that they'd like me to stay on.
I was really surprised and flattered by this--I certainly wasn't expecting that.
I thought on the situation, thought about the stress of dealing with a new job right now, and decided that perhaps I should remain in writing rather than analysis for now; I emailed the HR person and notified her that I would not be pursuing the other position.
Did I make the right decision? Hmmm...I'm not sure...I'm still chewing on that.
My supervisors are, however, working on softening the door slamming!
Mom and I also probably won't be able to move until around February 2013! Grrrr!!!
I voted for Jesus yesterday! It might not have made a major difference in the election, but at least I don't have to be ashamed before God about what I did at the polls.
School is going OK, I guess: One of my teachers is very disorganized! It's not clear which texts are required, which ones are optional. I'm usually exhausted, so I kind of rush through my assignments rather than savoring them. Oh well!
But, other than that, all is well, I guess...for now!
I've been praying Psalm 119:176 a bit lately: "I have gone astray like a lost sheep; seek thy servant; for I do not forget thy commandments."
I'm not backsliding or anything, I just start to feel a little lost when I'm overtired and a bit stressed: rushed prayers, rushed Bible reading--sometimes I just start to feel like Jesus and I are becoming a bit disconnected.
I need Him to help us reconnect...
