It's been a while since I've posted anything here. Mostly, I've just been concentrating on working for the federal govt. However, last week, I got an email (I kid you not) from my boss telling me that I would be laid off before the year was up. Last Friday, she let go the first worker who got hired on at the same time as me. I'm hoping and praying that I make it to the end of December at least, but it's not looking too good.
Been sending in applications left and right for various jobs within the federal sector, and already got rejected on two. Why? Because despite the fact that I was qualified, I didn't score high enough on their standard questionnaire that they have with every application. Guess that teaches me to stop skimming over those idiotic questions about my personality and how I interact with others.
Don't fret, I'm doing alright. But there are days in which I can't help but worry and get stressed. It's good to have this forum in which I can come to and be reminded to leave my cares to the Lord. Lately, I've been neglecting my conversations with the Lord, and haven't been watching the sermons on Sundays. I can definitely tell the difference between being away from Him, and being with Him.
So for this holiday, I'm gonna get into the mood for Thanksgiving and remember just how much we are blessed to be with each other, and to have food. For Christmas, I'm going to buy some gifts for my 3 year old nephew, and help make a big dinner. He's the only child in a family of adults, so there's no need and no pressure to buy gifts for everyone else when we're all broke and unemployed. Maybe that's what it will take for us and for others to remember what Christmas is really about.
