next to my name: 0.00 hours.
i had put in my two weeks three days before, but i guess this was their goodbye.
i could feel that really terrible pit in my stomach. the one so deep that, when it gets activated, immediately sends tears to the eyes.
emotions that ran through my body: good and pissed off.
i worked there for four and a half years. i was a good employee. on-time, came in early and left late when needed. kept my mouth shut when maybe i shouldn't have. and then had done the right thing and gave my two weeks, only to feel a giant slap in the face.
my first reaction was to scream and yell.
i'm only human.and then text the hubby.
who came back with this reply: it's all good babe :) we'll just get going on things earlier now!
i wish i could say total relief filled my body, but it only did a little bit.
i came home that day more worried than i had been all month. two more weeks at my job would have put us on the plus side of things financially, and i wouldn't have to worry about anything.
but there's my problem.
i worried first.
i prayed that day, but it was the desperation prayer, "dear God, please don't let us go poor and have to live in a box. ps, thanks for today."
yes, i leaned on my Maker in my time of need...but had i just been leaning the whole time, i wouldn't have been so worried.
so here i am now. four days away from what should have been my last day, and hey look. we just moved into a beautiful home and we threw out all the boxes.
am i on the "schedule" that i had created?
not a chance.
but i am so thankful for that. so, so thankful for it.
God has timing that i'll never understand. and honestly, i don't think i want to. my life is a jumbled mess, but i am so glad that no matter what: nothing is in my control.
this last week and a half has been so wonderful. i've had more time for...well everything. setting up my house, getting our new dog, spending more time with my husband, and spending far more time thanking Jesus for this life.
and this chance to chase my dreams.
i'm encouraged now, more than ever. i took a leap, and Jesus kept His arms opened so wide until i got to them.
i have come across so many verses this past week, but there's one that has been written on my heart for years now, and it wasn't until the other week that i could truly get it.
it's a huge thing.
at this point, i don't even want to try to depend on my own understanding. because i don't have any at this point.
and i'm ok with that.
my depending is on the One who placed the stars in the sky.
i'm not upset anymore by being let go early. i'm thrilled about it now. the timing was indeed perfect. but i guess that's because the One who did it, is perfect.
blessings sweet friend.
