As Pilgrim David is in the midst of his move, I'm in the midst of boxes galore! And still have a lot of packing to do! My move is less sad and stressful than the Pilgrim's because it's only a 1 bedroom apt I'm leaving - no sentimental attachments here let me tell you! I'm excited to be moving in about 3 weeks to my first "home" - a 2 level, 2 bedroom condo (I'll post pics when I'm settled in). It's exciting but also a time of some anxiousness - did I do the right thing Lord in taking out a mortgage? Such a huge financial responsibility for one person to take on! I question the wisdom in this. On the other hand, I felt the Lord was leading me in this direction to make this investment. It is an investment, whereas renting is like throwing money to the wind!
A little update on how I'm doing on my sick leave - or as I like to refer to it - my "health leave" because I am working at getting healthy! I'm doing okay - taking it a day at a time. My doctor and I decided it would be best to extend the leave until the end of July instead of mid-July. I'm not getting 100% pay on this leave so please keep my finances in your prayers. I have a huge amount of anxiety around going back to that work place and I try not to focus on that too much at this time. But it's amazing how our minds work because I find I'm having more nightmares in recent weeks than I've had in years. Obviously my fears are coming out while I sleep. Not pleasant at all! Even though this is all difficult I know God is working to make me a stronger, confident woman in Him. Though my co-workers meant it for bad (evil), my God means it for my good!!
I did apply for another internal job yesterday. It's an administrative assistant position in a different department and the admin reports directly to a manager. That's ideal because it isn't an admin pool where work is divided and there is more chance for jealousy, gossip and backstabbing - which is pretty much what is going on where I work now. Please pray about this job. It would be so nice to have a fresh start elsewhere. I need to build up some confidence in a new, healthier environment.
Well that's it for now.
God bless everyone.
