Praise God and Hallelujah!!

Ed got his job!!! Yee haw! He starts Wednesday as the Assistant Dept Manager at Harris Teeter for the fresh foods department. I feel like a weight has been lifted from me. Please understand that I was not worried over the past two months. I have never once felt like we wouldn’t be able to get through this—I knew God had a plan. And today, God finally let us in (a tiny bit) on His plans for our family. These past couple of weeks have been really good for our relationship. Ed and I have never had this much time to spend together…and I know he has also loved being able to spend tons of time with Edwin. But he’s ready to get back to work. And I just know that the folks at Harris Teeter are going to be blown away by my husband. I truly think he is the hardest worker I have ever met. So thank you to everybody that has been praying for us, it is very much appreciated.

Now for those of you who know the whole story, you will remember that the day of Ed’s first interview, he said to me “If I get this job, I’ll start going to church with you.” I (gently) reminded him that God doesn’t make deals, but I’d be happy to hold him to it! Haha. Well today when Ed informed me that he got the job, I asked if he’d be going with me to church on Sunday. His answer? “We’ll see”. There was a little more to it, but I won’t bore you. So now your mission is to pray that Ed will stay true to his word. I’ll let you know how it goes!!

Yay! That is great, not only that Ed got his job, but that you have been given the opportunity to trust God and have more time together.

Are you going to get a discount @ Harris Teeter? That'd be awesome!

Congrats, Ed! We're happy for you!

When does Ed start?

He starts Wednesday at 10am. Which is great because we still have the weekend together and he'll have a couple of days to squeeze in all that relaxin'!
