My colorful journal -- It’s not very colorful is it?
Well, I’ve decided to begin journaling online and see what kind of impact I can have on myself. Yes, this is for me. If you are reading this, bravo and welcome but you must understand I’m doing this for me.
I will soon be out of a job. The contract my company has is ending and it does not look like there are other opportunities within this company for me. I can’t control this situation. It is what it is. I don’t like it and I can’t control it. I can only control how I am reacting. So, I’m looking for work. I updated my resume. Posted it on Monster.com and changed the status to “Public.” It’s amazing how many recruiters have seen my resume and are calling me or e-mailing me. Be nice if any of these recruiters had any idea what I did though. Some are so clueless. They don’t even understand the job description they are trying to fill. Oh, well.
I’m doing other things to to maintain my sanity. Each day when I wake up I spend at least 30 minutes in Bible Study. I start with my church’s bible reading plan and then I move onto several devotionals that I have sitting by my bed. If there’s time, and there usually isn’t I move onto Beth Moore’s study about Esther. I think Esther is just about the bravest woman I’ve ever read about. Except for may be Joan of Arc. She went before the king unannounced, uninvited. The last thing she says to her uncle Mordecai is “If I perish. I perish.” You have to read the whole book to appreciate how it all came about and why she did what she did. But she knew the King could kill her on the spot and she went anyway. She’s my favorite woman of the Bible.
So, in any event, I’m committing to this blog. I don’t know what I have to say on any given day but I am committing to saying it daily. We’ll see where this takes me.
