God's timing (part 2)....

Randy found out yesterday he did not get called back for a 2nd interview with Arlington FD. We were both disappointed, but know that God has a plan. We just have to trust and obey. Not really sure what the next step will be now. We'll keep looking for other departments that are hiring in the meantime. We would appreciate your prayers in all this.

One thing that I did learn (again) from yesterday, is that we are blessed with more than we realize. Yes, this is the 2nd time the job/interview process hasn't worked out for us, but we do have so much to be thankful for. We have jobs, cars, a nice apartment, clothes to keep us warm, food in our pantry, friends and family who would do anything for us, a church that we love being a part of, and so much more that we don't deserve. A friend of a friend was diagnosed with Leukemia last week and started Chemo last Saturday. She is our age. Another friend of a friend is attending college in the US, while her family is in Africa. She is grateful for hand-me-down clothes that wouldn't be missed in someone else's closet. I could go on and on. The point being, God has blessed us with more than we need and deserve. We need to be thankful for it all, even when things don't go quite as planned. :)

And I close with the 1 picture I took when we went to the State Fair a few weekends ago....enjoy!
