The end and possibly the beginning?

It's Over!!!
I finally finished my Paralegal course !!
(well, I still have to do the course evaluation but for all intents and purposes, it is over)
It feels SO good to be done.
This second half of the course was very intense and at times I didn't know how I was going to get the work done. But I always pulled through and figured it out.
I am very glad that I took the course and even more glad that it is over!

During a few of my struggling moments while taking the course I started thinking that the reason I wasn't having more success finding a job was because the Lord wanted me to succeed in the course and knew I would have an even tougher time if I was working. Sort of a blessing in disguise I guess. After the past week I am definitely thinking that that is the truth.
It seems that I am getting a lot of "bites" right now. On Monday I had an interview with a "headhunter" for a position on Capital Hill (not really an ideal location commuting wise, but beggars can't be choosers), on Thursday I got a call about another position and have an interview for that this Wednesday, and on Friday I got an email about another position and I had an interview for that yesterday. I really feel good about the interview that I had yesterday and should know in the next few days if I have a job or not.

Things are really starting to look good, and I am so grateful and happy. The Lord is truly blessing me, and us. I see His hand in our lives right now and can't wait for what He has in store for us.


  1. Not really relating to the post: For the longest time, and really since I first heard the phrase until now, I always thought it was, "...for all intensive purposes..."

    Anyhow, I'm really glad to hear that you're reaping the fruit from your trust and loyalty to God's will and path for you. It's always great to see how good He is. ^_^

  2. That's so great Cara! Funny, how the Lord waits to gives us blessings until we are truly ready for them... Even if it seemed like we really needed them at the time! Good luck with interviews and job offers! Let us know tomorrow if you hear anything else!

  3. It's so true! I think the hardest thing in life is waiting for the Lord's timing. We want things to happen when we want them and how we want them, but if we just wait patiently it will all happen when it is supposed and probably be better than we thought it could.
