Life Brings Changes

Life is taking our family down a new road... the good Lord must have wonderful plans ahead for us, I just don't know what those are right now.  After six years of teaching at the same school they laid me off last month.  Since then I have been trying my best to put my faith and trust in Christ and not myself-- it is HARD!  I have thought about all the things that weren't fair in what happened or I can focus on what's ahead.  For my sake, I am trying my best to do the latter. 

Right now I am in the process of trying to figure out what to do with my life, now that there are other possibilities.  I LOVE being creative and making art, so that is an option.  I also love teaching and could try to find another job doing that.  But I also want to do what the Lord has planned and not try to make decisions on my own.  Where is the balance?  I haven't gotten any real direction yet and I am not one who likes to sit around and wait.

My husband has been wonderful during this time and continues to offer support.  This is one of those "tests" of a marriage where we can come out stronger or fall apart.  I have no intention of letting us do anything but come out stronger than before.  I'll keep you updated on the journey.  For now I just wanted you to know I haven't fallen off the face of the earth.  More to come...
