In October 2014 my beloved Shadows passed away. He was 13-1/2. I had him since he was six weeks old. He had liver and both kidneys failing. I had to make that tough decision that all pet owners must face one day. I was devastated. I got depressed. In January, I adopted a 3-1/2 year old Black Lab/German Sheppard mix from a county shelter. Her name is Maycee and she turned four this past September. That would have been a good time to blog about my faith.
In February of this year we got the news that my Mom had stage 4 Ovarian cancer and I left my factory job to help take care of her. I know, another good time to have blogged. Good news. Last month we got the news that she's officially in remission.
Last January, I started graduate classes at Liberty. I am studying Religion with a cognate in Leadership. Yes, another good time to have blog about my faith that I let slip by. For the spring and summer semester I was attending full time (3 classes a semester), but come fall I dropped to part time (2 classes a semester) because I need to go back to work full time so I can support me and my mother. I cannot go back to factory work because the arthritis in my knees have gotten worst.
I graduated in 2011 with a bachelor's degree in Business Administration so I am praying that I will land a good paying decent job that will put my degree to work. It's been difficult applying for one position after another and not getting hired. Everything seems great in the phone interviews but when I come in for a face to face the interview sometimes ends within five minutes with the interviewer talking about making their decisions and if I do not hear from them, good luck on my job search. Sometimes I get frustrated and go into my room and cry out to the Lord. I have no qualms about telling God I'm frustrated and upset, but in the end I have to have faith that God has something out there waiting for me. My blessing is coming but sometimes I need to walk through that desert.
