Sorry I Have Not Been Around Much

But I have been quite busy, and life has been drawing my attention in other ways. It has been a lot of Good things going on actually and as I can see it things are only going to continue to get better from here. I truly believe that sometimes God does allow time to see how much we can handle and then he steps in seeing how much we will continue and believe to Trust him from there. As many of you know I have been frustrated at my Job lately, and then with the high cost of Gas, etc. it just seems like it has been one thing financially after another lately to where I feel the only way out of all of this stress is to get a different job closer to home, and move on. So personally since Monday night this is where my focus has been and I have been busy getting my resume out there everywhere, and even filling out online applications, making phone calls, etc. This along side in sleeping and trying to go work my job as well. I have had one Job interview this week which I did not get the job, and then have another one this coming Monday, which looks quite promising and sure I will get. So even though it could be Less pay at first, it should be a lot better for me and actually my husband and I in the end. It is really close to where we live, and full time days so that is a Big plus for sure. Only thing is I will be without Medical for about 3 months so let's hope nothing serious happens. But I know God is in control. So if you are a Praying person prayers are still appreciated, and I will continue to keep you updated on what is going on as I can. ~~TINA~~

I don't pray myself but I will send you some amazing positive vibes across the Pond! I have such a good feeling about your up-coming interview and wish you all the luck in the world. You deserve it my friend.

Thanks for the Well wishes my friend. I am sure everything will be alright, and I know God is in control. I am a little nervous, but excited as well. I am keeping positive and promise to post on here if I get the job as well.

Hello Tina. Yes, they say God doesn't give you more than you can handle. I am glad you looked elsewhere for work and that you feel you have found something. And it is so close! Great! And you usually have to take some cuts in the beginning. It is all for the good. Sounds like it is full speed ahead!

Well, I still have the Job interview tomorrow to deal with to prove I have another job closer to home. We went and drove by there yesterday to make sure we knew where to go, and check out the Bus route if needed, etc. as well. It would really be nice if I do get hired on there, and nervous and excited for sure.

I don't know if I am a prayer person. Usually I would only say: "God, you know what is my problem and what is my expectation. And you know what is best for me. So, I would accept anything you deem is the best for me." If hat is as good as being a prayer, then I would pray for you, too to be given the best for your situation right now. Good luck and never give up.

I do hope you get that job and just said a prayer for you that things work out as God has willed. Gas isn't going down and it's a real concern. I can't help but think you should be applying for disability instead of trying to work. Is that a possibility? It would be better for you, I think, and better for your health.

Well, due to being Married, being on Disability would not be much of a help and if anything be more expensive, and have a lot less $$ coming in for sure. I actually enjoy working though, and really trying to get my Own Business off the ground as well, but I know no matter what happens, God is in control.

You certainly have my prayers KrauseHome! I am sure that if this is the right job you will be successful. I haven’t been around very much either because, just like you I’ve had to deal with other life matters. At the moment I am looking for a small business that I can start so I can save some money to eventually build the cattery I have been dreaming about. Let’s hope that God will assist us both with our endeavors. Good luck!

Good Luck on your Business venture. I know that one of the main reasons I want to get a job with day hours, and closer to home is so that I can consider doing more Events, Shows, and get my Business going more from my home like need be. It is hard to do anything lately with such a busy schedule. Maybe we should message each other about what you are looking for and what I am doing, and see if we can possibly help each other. Thanks for the Prayers.

If you are unhappy in your job and get one that you like it'll be worth a cut in pay. Also you will save a lot of money in traveling. I am getting disability and maybe you could get it also. I understand if you want to work as long as you can. When you are not working, it feels like you are not making a contribution to society and you have no purpose at first. If you want the job on Monday, I pray you get it, and it is everything you hope it is.

Well, if you have followed the other discussions, you know I did not get the other job I was hoping for, and things at my job are not really getting any better. I know in time God will work things out, and things will be OK. As for disability, since I am Married it is almost impossible to get, and I really want to work, and get my online/offline business to become more successful as well.

Tina, I hope that you are able to get the new job. I don't know how far you have to commute each day, but if it is far it is not good with the price of gas these days. I know with the efforts you have been making that something good will happen soon. Is there a way you can be put on your husband's insurance until yours kicks in? Good luck with the interviews!

Tina, I am so excited for you. Perhaps your medical condition will actually improve if you get to change jobs. Can you order a three month supply of your medications before you leave the cab company?

That's really awesome Tina! I bet you get that job! However, like you said, God is in control and if He sees fit that you get this job, you will! God will see you through the three months too. You do what you think is right for you and your husband and God will see to the rest! God bless you!

Hello Tina. Our prayers from Romania are with you and hope for a good turn out of events. I have been less active as well because i am nearing my deadline for my MBA paper, and i also have been writing some articles for my brothers to make a little extra on the spur of the moment. Hoping that all will turn out okay for all of us, Alex.

Wow, sounds like things are going pretty well for you. I, on the other hand, am having financial problems, and since I am retired, well, I can't work outside the home. I am on a fixed income every month, but it only goes so far, and I come up short after paying the bills. That is why I am trying so hard to find different ways to make money, so that I don't have that problem. I do some sties, but they just don't make all that much, and trying to find ways of making money without having to pay out is quite difficult. My daughter got me started in Chacha, and that amounts to $150 a month, which does help, but still it isn't enough to get by on. I just hope that I can find other ways to make money fast without putting any money out. I am a christian, and I will pray for you, and do keep me in your prayers as well. God bless you and have a very good day.

I am a firm believer in prayer and do hope things get better for you. Sometimes when they do not work out as we plan, know that it was not right for us. I will keep my prayers strong for you and hope all works out for the best. Sounds like convenience would be best especially if you will not be spending much more to get to the job. So my prayers and fingers will be tight for you. Best of luck and do not worry about not being able to be here, you catch up eventually.
