Ready, steady....

It seems 2013 is going to start with a bang.  A starter's pistol sort of bang.

2013 is going to involve starting a new job, finding a new place to live, packing, and moving.

Just before Christmas I interviewed for a job back in the Sohoe area. Today I will be submitting my notice to  New Town Public Library. If it didn't involve the packing and moving and the finding of a new home it would have been a dead simple decision to make. The packing and moving and finding of a new home was almost enough to convince me to stay here and take my chances that work would appear at the end of my current contract.

I've been moaning to God about wanting to be back by the lake. I miss the beauty of Sohoe and grumbled to God a great deal about how the beauties of New Town are hidden from me. (Seriously, they must be a great local secret, because I haven't been able to find them.)  I would be foolish to turn this opportunity down, wouldn't I?


  1. I hope that you have a wonderful start to your new job, and that moving is not too difficult.
    God bless,

  2. Ask yourself what it is you really want in all of this Tess. What I mean is, do you like New Town so much that you would take the risk of finding employment if it is there? Are you happy in NT or is there a area in particular you would rather be and if so, work towards that goal, and maybe take the risk of finding employment there instead. You seem attached to Soho, so maybe that is where you should concentrate? What I am saying is, don't settle for something less than you want, even if it means working harder for a time. To many of us "settled" for less than what we want because of unwarranted fear of moving somewhere new, or starting a new job etc. Life is a risk, just risk it in the direction you wish to go Tess. You have a guide, ask Him constantly to point the way.

  3. Thank you, Frances and Bobby.

    I know this is the right step to take; it's just a little scary and quite fatiguing as well. If only God could do all the work for me as well as provide the opportunity! (haha)
