Now Serving Freshly Squeezed Lemonade

Many of you know that I have been actively searching for a job for seven months since losing my last job exactly two weeks before Bryce was born. Needless to say that situation created some extra stress for me and Brett. I didn't understand why I was treated so unfairly, and I still don't. But looking back, I am so thankful for the time I have had with my baby! I've been trusting that the Lord would continue to provide for us, which He has.

Two days ago I posted about a great job offer, and my heartache of leaving Bryce. Well, one day after verbally accepting the position I received another job offer from an organization that I interviewed with in the Fall. They were calling to offer me a job! SO, to make a long story short(ish)... I accepted the second offer. I will be working for the Lorain County Health Department as a Health Education Specialist. The major pro in taking this position is that my commute will literally be cut in half, allowing me more time with Bryce. After worrying and stressing for more than a year about possibly losing my job and then that nightmare becoming reality... everything has fallen into place.

God is so good. And I'm not saying that because I now have a job. Rather because His will and plan are perfect! Even when life is sour and all you seem to get are lemons... don't worry... God is preparing sweet lemonade for us to enjoy!
