A lot can happen in 6 months

I started blogging again when I was let go from my previous job 6 months ago. It was devastating to me, especially because at that time my spouse was working a minimum-wage, hourly job with no potential of better job offers coming in ("enuf" said about that!).

From that point on, it was a downward slide for me. It was one devastating blow after another. I would shout out, "God! What ever happened to your promise that you wouldn't give me more than I can handle, uh? I can't take it anymore!" It was during that season of my life, I realized I could continue to wallow in my grief, pain, and self-pity or I could "weep for the night" and allow God to do something extraordinary in my life. Something that I would have never guessed.

And so He did. Within ONE month--yes, 1, uno--I had found not only another job, but one that was way better than the one I had. Better pay, greater job satisfaction; healthier work environment; closer to home. In a time when so many are out of work or were without work for over a year, God gave me a job that was suited just for me. He is so awesome that God created that position just for me! 

So that's the main reason I haven't blogged in 6 months. That's a good reason, too!
This Good Friday, I just want to say "thank you" God for sending your Son to die on a cross for me. I'm so grateful for that sacrifice.

Thank you, God, for taking me to another level in you--in trusting and believing in you. Forgive me for the times I doubted you. I'm so glad you are a loving and forgiving Father.

This is such a great testimony, Lillian. Truly an encouragement to all that God has not forgotten them. He is faithful to His folks. I am thankful He shakes us up a bit so that when we do receive the good things in life, we can appreciate them that much more!

Keep writing. I can't wait to hear more! :)
