Sunday News

What a blessed Sunday - very busy but blessed! The only bummer is that the weather is still 95 degrees and supposed to be 90 tomorrow. I don't want any more hot weather. I seriously need a 70 degree, cloudy, drizzly day!! Looks like I won't get my wish until about Friday.

Yesterday my husband's 95 year old grandmother, Grandma Jerry, fell and broke the lower bone in her hip and her femur bone. This lady still lives in her own little apartment, cleans, cooks, and keeps house! She lives in a retirement center and was at the dining room getting a sandwich to take home to eat. She turned her foot the wrong way and fell flat on the floor. Grandma had surgery this morning at 8 and came through with flying colors. The doctor put a steel rod from her hip down to her knee. She was doing fine and resting comfortably when we left the hospital this afternoon. It's going to be a long recovery and there is a possibility that she may not be able to live alone anymore. But we've thought that twice before and Grandma proved us wrong.

At 5 am this morning I was having a serious talk with the Lord. I was praying for Grandma and many other people when I just felt so convicted. Like there was something that I needed to confess before I could continue praying for others. I asked God's forgiveness for my worry about my job situation and that I was trying to take the control away from him ( a constant problem that I have). Anyway, I gave it all up to Him. I said that whatever He had in mind for me, wherever He wanted me to be - I would follow and do it with my whole heart! If I still didn't have a job when my unemployment runs out in November that I was not going to worry because I knew that He would provide. I left all this at the foot of the cross and walked away.

While at the hospital waiting for Grandma to get out of surgery I got a phone call. At first I thought it was a prank call as the person said they were calling about a job that I had applied for. There are so many scammers out there that I get suspicious when I don't know the person. Not to mention that it is Sunday morning and you don't get many calls about a job on Sunday.

The call was from a doctor who wanted to speak with me about a resume I sent a month ago!! She is a pediatrician in Portland who is opening a holistic pediatric office! She will combine both kinds of medicine in order to treat kids the best way possible - focus being on natural medicine. We chatted for about 15 minutes and I have an interview tomorrow at 1! I am so excited. She wants to keep her practice on a very personal level and will only be seeing about 10 patients a day. That way she can really get to know her patients and their families.

It's exciting for me to just be able to talk to someone about a job - I've only had one other interview in the last 15 months. Just to have an interview is such a blessing! I don't know if the job will work out or not - God is in control of that. But at least I have an interview!! I will keep you posted on the outcome.

I hope your Sunday was blessed too!

I'm praying, Kay! Maybe this is the right job for you :)
About the heat thing - all I can say is I REALLY know exactly how you feel! :( We are back up in the 100's again and I'm hurting, so hard to breath.
Hopefully it will cool down soon!
The showings on our house has picked up but no offers yet :( I'm really getting tired of living in "limbo".

Hope your week is as great as it started out!!
