Since so many of you have been so supportive and given me so much good advice over this past (rough) year, I FINALLY have some good news to share: I GOT A JOB!! It's not really in my field, but it's still interesting: I'm teaching computers to senior citizens at a local library. The reason I decided to take it is because about a month ago I applied to the recreation and leisure department of one of the big resorts here in Muskoka, and last week I had an interview for it! They have four (yes, FOUR!!) interview stages, and so far I've made it past the first 2, so hopefully it will continue to go well. I decided to stay in Muskoka a bit longer to see if I have a shot at the resort job. If not, the library position is only for the winter. I was sad to not be going back to Ottawa, but I can always go back after the library position ends.
As a child of God, I think I deserve to be put in a corner or a time-out or something! I could practically hear God saying to me "You see Lauren, I DID have a plan for you, you just stubbornly refused to listen. I keep telling you I will never leave you, so please try and work on remembering that".
I hope my mistake can serve as a reminder to Pals to never doubt our Lord- He really does have a plan, even if it's hard to always see it.
p.s. Since I hardly have any winter gear and suitable "office clothes" with me, I'm leaving Thursday night to go to Ottawa for the week-end..please pray it's a safe trip!
