Faith Journey

My Dad & Mom<><><>Two of the most amazing people I know<><><>
They always have walked in Faith

I have just been hired for the job of my life time. I have worked in dentistry for the last 35 plus years. I really felt like when I started this journey of looking for work, that I had reached "burn out". Now I feel like I have revived my feelings that I can go forth in the same field. I have found a employer who has passion and compassion like no other that I have ever seen. She respects me as a professional as well as respecting her patients. I feel so encouraged.
My husband started a new job that he is happy and encouraged that he has finally found a positive environment to work in. He's not making the money he was almost 3 years ago, but the positive rebuild that has to take place will be the best in time. Thus our 
"Faith Journey".
These last 9 months have been a "Faith Journey" for me and my family. When I think about 9 months, I think about being pregnant, and how long that felt to me as the months went by, as I became more and more uncomfortable and anxious. 
This has truly been uncomfortable and as the time went by and I was really becoming anxious! This time it was not about giving birth and how I would feel and what would I feel. But it was all about 5 other people that now were counting on me to support them. 
I was becoming creative about paying the bills and making our resources go further. No one ever asked for extra's. If they wanted it they went out and mowed a lawn, or dug a ditch to finance it. They too were becoming creative with our resource's. 
We have been on a journey together as a family. I have worked temporary jobs here and there  and unemployment in-between. My husband has kept the family together as he has looked for a job for the last 2 1/2 years! Even though it has been hard for him to be 
home, he has created a bond with the boys that he would never have been able to get if he had been working.
We have prayed through some of the hardest of days, weeks, months, and years of our life. I truly believe God has been with us every step of the way. I know just a fraction of how Jesus felt on His journey of Faith. We are in the the season of Lent. I have felt as if my season of Lent has been for years. Not just a short season. 
I look forward to celebrating Easter this year more than ever! 
Thank you God for sending us your Son to show us the way to "Life Everlasting".  JOY! PEACE!

Tammie, I feel like you and I have been on very similar journeys, both in life and in faith. God HAS been with us, every step of the way. I too am in a job I love and my husband is finally working again too. But I totally understand what you were saying about that mounting anxious feeling. That difficult journey evidently led us to where we need to be.
