I work part time, and have been for the 12 years I've been working this job. Just before lunch my boss called to ask me a business related question, then he brought up work this week. The economy is NOT what it has been in the past, as we all know, and in my job, people don't spend when the economy is down. So, I will be working less hours a week and be taking a cut in pay, until things pick back up. My boss hates to do this but in order to keep things going, this is the way it has to be. He told me to think about it and call him back later. DH and I talked about it, and at least I still have my job, just less of it. :-) Things could be much worse. I called my boss after lunch and told him ok and he said this is just for the time being, then he sighed and said Thank you.
After I got off the phone and thought about the situation, I thought, how's that for the thought posted in my earlier post ~ Life is not a having or a getting, but a being and a becoming.? Hmmmm. I am a being, what am I becoming?
Guess that is my thought to ponder today.
We are in God's tender loving care regardless of circumstances. May I rest in His care, with peace and thanksgiving in my heart, trusting Him to work all things out.
We are not in debt. Our little cottage is paid for. I'm thankful for my DH and the love we share. I have lots of flower seeds from fellow gardeners to plant in my gardens. We have food to eat, clothes to wear, and much more. When we have to cut back sometimes, it makes what we have all the more special. I hope to mosey along with the flow, taking each day as it comes, seeing the joy and beauty in each one.
