Reasons to celebrate

We got a Christmas gift a little early this year...!!

Yep, after a SOLID YEAR of my husband not having a permanent full time job, he was offered a position last night by the district fire station TWO MILES from our house.

We have a job!

And not just any job, but his dream job, in his dream location. God is SO good and His timing SO perfect. I kept saying that all year, even though some days it was harder to feel than others, but I knew it to be true despite the occasional doubt clouds.

My husband has been volunteering at this station and working part time shifts for them off and on these past few months, while going through their hiring process against tough competition and performing other part time jobs to see us through.

Can I just say how relieved I am?????

I love the fact that I don't have to cringe anymore when I walk past his fire department graduation pic in the hallway. I love the fact that I don't have to cry nightly over our budget anymore. I love the fact that God provided us with some extra money recently that we could help share with friends in dire need, as others shared with us during our need. I love knowing that God set this up SO PERFECTLY and that Romans 8:28 truly played out.

I love seeing God's promises fulfilled and being able to brag on Him. :)

To GOd be the glory! Merry Christmas!


  1. And I love that God allows you to bless us with your talents! I'll never forget your help and your support. May God give you and your family back a hundredfold!

  2. A giant congrats, girl. This is such exciting, wonderful news...and just in time for Christmas. Woo hoo!

  3. Congrats on your answered prayers! My husband just went out on his own with our business! Faith seems to be the name of the game this year:) We have been amazed over the last 18 months how God has been with us every step of the way - even making sure we had a place to step! Merry Christmas!
