I am not usually one to write about my religious views on this blog, because as much as I am open about my beliefs, I am not one to shout from the rooftops about how I feel.

This post is going to be an exception because something very good happened to me this week, and I just have to say, the Lord is Good.

I will begin by letting you know that we ave been financially tight ever since we got married. I have not had a full time job since June of 2009. I have been a stay at home mom, with only 2 very small jobs since- a few hours a weekend at a small bistro- which only lasted a few months, and a day or two now and again as a substitute paraprofessional.

My husband has been primary breadwinner for myself, our daughter, and my in laws since January 2009.. he was steady at one job for a year and a half, which was his longest position ever, but decided to take a risk and leave to go back into the hotel management field. This disasterous choice cost us a lot, and he ended up job hopping for the past 6 months, where he would realize he was not happy, find another job, and switch with due notice. He was laid off this week and we were devastated. We had very little income coming in from his mom, and could not support this family without one or both of us working. Back in December he began getting cues that he would no longer be employed, so he began applying like crazy, with lots of out of town interest, but not much around here.

This morning we got a miracle. Less than 2 days after he was officially let go, he called a potential employer who had given him an informal interview Wednesday, and he was offered a full time position. This job has slightly less pay, but offers commision, unlike the hotel business. It also is about 30 seconds from our home! I too received a call from an employer and was hired full time in a school system just 10 minutes away.

I feel like shouting from rooftops! God is Good and took a rough time for us, and gave us better opportunities!
