Big News!!!! and a New Job

Alright, with a title like that you would think I was about to actually tell you what the big news is, BUT unfortunately I cannot do that today. Probably, the first thing that would come to mind when you think of a young family with 1 daughter about to turn 3 is that we are going to be welcoming a new babe in the family soon. If you did think that-you would be incorrect. I can also say-it is also the cause for my absence. As my life right now revolves around this one thing and honestly I haven't had much time to do anything else. I am hoping soon that I will be able to blog about it.

On a different note :) - You might have read several posts ago that Chris was looking for a new job. He hasn't been at his current job very long, but there were promises made in order for him to come to this job and they were not kept. He was sought out by his current employer who he had worked with 8ish years ago. It was a man that Chris has always looked up to and admired. We felt that it would be a great opportunity for our family and one that we couldn't pass up. Since then, Chris has been traveling all the time (and was gone almost every holiday) with this job when they had told him it would only be a few months of traveling in the beginning. Now I can understand if the company isn't growing like they had originally thought, but then he found out in a lunch meeting with a client that they had lied to him multiple times about a partnership share. It is something he didn't get in writing because they assured him that noone had it in writing yet, but that it would be coming. He asked about it several times, but they kept reassuring. Sure enough, he found out that they have not included him in this nor will they be doing so. Needless to say, neither himself or I wanted him to work there any longer. I think it is most disappointing because Chris looked up to his employer so much and always has.

BUT where one door closes, God opens another! Chris has found a new job! It has been an amazing experience in that we have seen God giving us direction and answers throughout the entire process. He couldn't be anymore clear on his desires for our family. We learned that the job with his current employer was only a stepping stone for what God had in store for us. Chris has spent roughly 8 hours in interview time with the new company. One interview was 4 1/2 hours long which included an hour of technical question drilling by 5 of their current techs. It has been a grueling and hard process, but worth it in the end. They have hired him to be a Senior Windows System Administrator (what that means-I don't even know). He is VERY excited about his new job and is looking forward to feeling a part of a team again. This will be his last week with his current job and then he reports to his new job the following week.

God is working in our lives right now and He is so good to us! We laid our burdens at His feet and He gave us direction. We cried to Him and He gave me peace and the words to help ease Chris' concerns. We give thanks to Him and He continues to bless us!
