Good News!

I got a full-time permanent job today!!!! I start on November 30th-the Feast of the Patronal Saint of my Parish: St. Andrew! Coincidentally (or is it?), I've been working really hard the last few weeks on our parish stewardship campaign. St. Andrew, pray for us!

I want to take a moment to thank, with my entire heart, all those who have prayed for me during these several months of underemployment and unemployment that I've had. At no time, did anyone ever complain that I requested prayers AGAIN. I've found that praying for others is no chore to me. I see any prayer as an opportunity for conversation with God and I welcome it. However, I recognize my own unworthiness and I am humbled by the many kindnesses I've received.

I prayed for the intentions of all who have prayed for me at Adoration and Novena this evening.

Bacon all 'round, I think....

Wonderful, JCM! I'm so happy for you. It's been a long time a-coming.

Is it with your parish? I didn't quite follow that.

Now you and Adoro will have even more things to talk about besides pets and the AOTM-W.

Ter: I'm not sure cornering the Infant Jesus is the tack you should be taking! LOL! Thanks for prayers,my friend.

Bede: It's ALWAYS time for bacon. Now, maybe I just need to double the consumption of it in celebration!

Ray: No, not with my parish. I just found the tie-in interesting.

I'm so happy foy you!! I hope this path is only the beginning for greater success down the future.

Sorry for staying away from your blog for so long. The classes I'm taking right now are a pain in the posterior. I wish I had selected a different class or a different proffesor;0)

Cath - Today at adoration I apologized for scaring him, and thanked him instead. He told me I don't scare him when I do that stuff anyway.

Thanks, Melody, Anna B, Tara, Katie and Swissy.

Argent: Probably cube city. I was in an office in that building before but I'll be on a different floor and I recall they don't have that many enclosed offices on that floor. That's ok. More people around for me to evangelize when I set up my full creche. Heh. Kidding. Sort of. LOL!

Ter: I know. I fully expected retaliation of some kind. I'm back, baby!

Larry: Wait, you were holding back? You mean you have an even longer list than the one you already faxed?!?

Thanks Father and L!

Larry: Yeah, don't wait by the mailbox. However, he may offer to pray for you and that is a gift worth receiving!
