Yes---there are lots of praises in this house.
Brian got a promotion in the company he works for! Pretty much an office job, and on days! No more yucky machine work!!! He will get some more hours, and he will receive a pay raise. Moving on up the ladder. He will actually MORE than double what he has made for the last 7 years! Way to go Brian! He is pretty happy, since he was up against men that had worked there for years, for this position. It is also a position that he can take elsewhere...which is a good thing.
Also---we have been receiving more direction on how to finish out the next few years. The plan right now is to continue to work here and try to sell our house, while looking for a job in the area that we would like to be in. Brian will start back to school in the evenings next fall. Then will start work on his Masters a year from this fall, and hopefully take on a ministry intern position at that time. He would like to have his Doctorate by the time that he is 40, but we will have to wait on that one, as that is pretty far down the road.
I know that God may have a million turns in that path. But, we are very open, and ready for each bend. Still praying for His will to be done, and for Him to receive the glory out of whatever does happen. BUT, today---just praising Him for His wonderful provisions!!!
