Interview Update

Thanks to all of you who commented or emailed to say you are praying and to ask how Curt's job interview went. My prayer for him was that he would walk away saying that he felt like he did well and didn't have regrets about answering questions a certain way. Well I am happy to report that he said he felt like it went as well as it could possibly go. That's a big praise for me because now no matter what happens he won't be able to wonder if he could have done better, answered a question more effectively, etc. I am thankful to the men in his life who stepped in and prayed for him, offered resume and interview tips, and just encouraged him in general. He received several texts just before the interview from men saying they were praying for him. That was huge. If you are one of those men, thank you.

So now we wait. They said it could take a week or two. We have peace. We feel God's protection and provision. We know He holds us in the palm of His hands and, as several of you suggested, that He has plans to give us a hope and a future. Thanks to all of you who have prayed, written or called. Your care and concern have been a big part of the peace we are surrounded with. Yesterday I put this verse on an index card and posted it on our refrigerator as a reminder during this time:

Isaiah 26:12, "Lord, you establish peace for us; all that we have accomplished you have done for us." (NIV)
Pin It!

Thank you for updating us on the interview when you are in the midst of your novel.

I will continue to pray for peace and direction. I will print the verse and place it in a prominent location in my home to. Thank you for listing it today.

Blessings to you, Caroline

I will even make a roadway in the wilderness, rivers in the desert” (Isaiah 43:18-19, NASB).

Hi ,
i`m Kelly, i have 22 yrs old from York , England .

We try to share this link from –Debby Alten — blog to share the story of espeacial lady with one amazing story !
We try to make something to help alittle this childrens , just search and look !

Our hearts are for the families from Haiti ,too ! Let`s keep prayers for all the overhelming situation of there .

Often when we face obstacles in our day-to-day life, our hurdles seem very small in comparison to what many others have to face. The Brooklyn Bridge shows us that dreams that seem impossible can be realised with determination and persistence, no matter what the odds are.The pursuit of happiness is a matter of choice…it is a positive attitude we consciously choose to express. It is not a gift that gets delivered to our doorstep each morning, nor does it come through the window. And I am certain that our circumstances are just a small part of what makes us joyful. If we wait for them to get just right, we will never find lasting joy.

The LORD is with us !
