|One bootie is completed!!|
|Second bootie in the QUICK process of being knit.|
The past few months at church their have been many good announcements-announced pregnancies, jobs, restored relationships, etc., and I've been jealous of this announcements (not because I want to be pregnant and I am happy for the other people). But because it hurts to realize that my husband and I have been praying for a job for him over the past year, and it seems he's getting nowhere. I HAVE to work outside the home and there are frustrations I have with work. It seems my attention is divided in two-work and home; on the weeks I have to work, housework goes out the window. But, God has slowly been convicting me of my sin. It's a SIN to be jealous and envious of other people. I have not taken the time I should be to be thankful for what God has given us.
God has given Drew a part time job (about 32 hours/week). I work PRN as a nurse at a nearby hospital, which means I can pick and choose what days I'll work and which days I will not work. Plus, I only have to schedule myself to work two 12 hour shifts per schedule (28 days). When I have gone to work, Drew is able to stay home with the pumpkin (or his parents come and watch her). The good news though is that I don't have to wallow in my sin. Christ died for my sin, and I am covered in His perfect righteousness. God has given me salvation because of Christ alone!!
