Job Interview at 1:00 PM Eastern

I am amazed at God's faithfulness and mercy to me. John and I had decided that the best thing for me to do right now would be for me to go back to work. The plan was to begin the job hunt as soon as we got settled into the house, so sometime this week. I was dreading this job hunt because, to be honest, all I really want to do is be a stay at home mom. So I had asked God for His mercy in helping me to find a job quickly and easily. Well last Friday, before I even started looking, there was a picnic at John's school to welcome new students. Right before we left we ran into one of the faculty. She had wanted to meet John because one of his colleagues at Eglin (who was a friend of hers) had sent her a letter of introduction for John. She said she heard I would be looking for work also and asked me to tell her about my background. Turns out she is looking for a research associate. My skills and interests match up perfectly for the research she will be doing. This past weekend I updated my CV and sent it to her. She seemed pleased by it and so we arranged to meet today for an interview. On Tuesday, I received an employment offer from the contractor for the position. I don't know how firm the offer is since nothing has been signed yet. I am meeting with her today at 1:00 PM. Please pray that all goes well with the interview. I will give more details later about the position and how faithful God was in providing this for me.

Oh goodness, you're interviewing right now! I had two interviews last week. Not fun! I hope yours goes well, and you get the perfect job for you for right now. I know exactly what you mean about knowing it's best to get a job, but in you're heart you'd rather be at home with a little one. Praying for your heart right now.
