And no, I'm not expecting. But, Aaron and I have been praying dilligently (along with loads of other people who've been praying for us) about Aaron finding a new job. This has been a prayer that we've prayed for a few years now.
And I'm glad to annouce that IT'S HAPPENED!!!!
He will be starting training for his new position with the United States Postal Service on Dec 26th. We've known for a little over a week, but some information was coming in slowly about where he would be located. Currently, his daily commute is about 50 miles and we were hoping that he'd be able to work out of the Postal Office that's about 3 miles from our home. You can imagine what a 6 mile daily commute would do for our gas budget, compared to a 50 mile commute. So, we've been praying that we'd be excepting of what God's will was for his location, as he could have been located in any postal office in the city of Indianapolis. We found out yesterday that God had answered another prayer! He's working out of our local office!
His last day of work at his current job is next Tuesday. There's a small possibility that he'll start his training on the 19th instead of the 26th. If not, he'll have about a week of work off. It will be so nice to have him home with us for those few days if it works out! We'll be able to celebrate Christmas stress free!
Thank you to everyone who's prayed and prayed and prayed for us during this time. Keep the prayers coming though! Aaron's training process will be extensive and we're praying his transition is a smooth one!
I'd like to open this up to you as well- if you're thinking of starting (or continuing or restarting) your weight loss journey, why don't you join me! Leave a comment or send a message and we can get a group started for support and encouragement. I've learned it's nearly impossible to do alone. I've sucessfully lost 20 lbs so far, and I didn't lose a pound of it alone! Together we can learn how our food choices can be pleasing to God and what HE says about who we are, not who or what the world says we are! It doesn't matter if you've got lots of weight to lose, or no weight to lose and just want to make healthier choices- lets do it together! I look forward to hearing from you!
