i forgot...

a friend of a friend emailed her friend in chicago about teaching jobs and last night i read her response -
she said she hoped maybe we had connections or knew the mayor because suburb jobs are hard to come by. she has a masters and 15 years experience teaching internationally and here and she's been trying for years to get a job in the suburbs.

and just like that i forgot.

I started imagining working at mcdonalds or taco bell or shoveling snow with no coat in chicago blizzards.

i forgot how faithful God has been to us.

how he blessed me with 2 interviews in one day after nothing for months.

how he gave me a job at an amazing school with awesome 2nd graders.

how we have never, ever, not-for-once, gone without anything we have ever needed or even wanted.

so after sleeping bad and having horrible dreams all night, i read psalm 94:19 this morning

'when the cares of my heart are many, your consolations cheer my soul'

i won't forget again because the Lord has an amazing plan for us and i'll rest in Him until we get to see what it is.
