Spoke to my neighbor yesterday. He's been with the Shipyard 35 years. He spoke with a buddy in HR who checked my online app and I got some pointers so hopeful for that interview I know is coming soon..
My neighbor is also a Church marriage counselor with his wife. I have not shared much with them about relationship issues the 20 years we've been neighbors and shared a BUNCH ( unfortunately my weakness) yesterday. So much crap. He was blown away. But just making lots of changes in MY life and feeling empowered and supported. God has plans and is in control so am comforted. Things will change dramatically and to quote a verse in the Bible:"I lift mine eyes unto the hills. From whence cometh my help (strength)? My help comes from the Lord who made both Heaven and Earth". I'm looking at a photo of DH from before we were married but dating. We had been on a back pack trip with our Church college group. He is standing on a rock over looking a vast expanse of hills we're hiking in. Many years ago I put that photo in a frame and added that verse onto the photo and gave it to him as a gift. It was a very cherished gift. I just wish he would take it to heart these days as I do. But life goes on and we each do with it as we see fit.
I also was reading in Joel Osteens book "It's Your Time". And one statement he wrote about has really stuck with me. He said "God doesn't do things TO you. He does them FOR you". So bad things that happen may be perceived as bad but when we keep ours eyes on God and keep the faith we will see that those bad things end up having a silver lining. "All things work together for good"
Soooo, so much for preaching but just wanted to point out no matter how bad my life may seem I KNOW I am taken care of. Ever hear the story of 'Footprints in the Sand"? God walks with you side by side in the sand so there a 2 sets of footprints. Then one day there is only one set of footprints and we assume they are ours and we question God about why he abandoned us only to hear the answer that the one set was Gods and He was carrying us. All I got to say is God is my ROCK. Thats my story and I'm stickin to it!
That explains why I have lived in a storage (over my life time) shed with 3 men (varioues times), and birthed several children...and never once had so much as a BAND of a wedding ring~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I had land, and raised produce & animals.....and my kids...................in the wildness of Idaho.
In the process, I attracted loosers.
Just attracted yet more "user friendly men" everytime I asked for someone to come help harvest timber~~~~~~
Or fire wood................. or help side the house..........
From one day to the next I am so GLAD it is being done FOR me.
My God, is not the same as yours, he is not.
And in this content, it would be nice if one would not shove another's religion on anyone else.
I know ya ain't "Shovin"
So I find it would be really nic e if we all got along & quit saying OURS was the best ??
Cuz there is a million bazillion people here, and they all have their GODS
and who are we to say their GOD is not THEE God ?
Makes me wanna stay in my own Cathredral~~~~~~
P.S. The best things in life have changed !!!
The best things in life are WHERE THERE IS NO PEOPLE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ha ha ha
The land is pure & relatively clean...animals native still mate & raise their young....Otters, Muskrats, Deer, Elk.
Coyotes & Fox..................WE need to STOP overbreeding...I have said this before.
