Well, the time slot of ambiguity left in the wake of a vacant semester is quickly starting to take shape. When we were sure that we would be staying in Wisconsin for the next few months one of our main concerns had been that we would not have much to do, at least until I started my summer work and Stacie started increasing the world’s population by another child.
However our concerns have been laid to rest, as our idleness has given way to a variety of activities. Stacie was excited to find a plethora of ladies Bible studies (from various sources too none the less) for her to get involved in. It is really a nice opportunity for her to meet new people, and to develop old relationships. One of the best parts is that a lot of them have child care, which Stacie will be needing because I will be busy with *cue The Price is Right announcer voice* my new job!!!
Yep, I am working at a furniture factory. I thought for sure that having only a few months of working availability would turn off potential employers (since I still plan to drive buses for the summer) but the factory currently has a lot of orders and only needs someone for a few months. Pretty sweet huh? I mostly just sand and stain wood all day. I mentioned to a friend that if he ever goes to the Hilton in Ft. Worth I will have likely stained all of the beds there; he promptly replied that he will be sure to NEVER go to the Hilton in Ft. Worth. I guess I should be more careful with my wording.
I’ll be the first to admit that my first reaction to God temporarily shutting the door for school was to be a bit frustrated, but I was reminded by a lot of people to relax and see what He is doing, and now it is fun to see Him put a new plan in order. I am excited to see what He has in mind for us and can’t wait to find out how He will get us involved in people’s lives while we are here. He has already proven Himself to be so faithful!
