News/Update: The good, bad, and the glorious

At this point, you probably all know the good news. I proposed on June 10th and she said yes. I could probably say more, and if the demand exists, I'll write the whole story of the proposal up here.

The next piece of news is both bad and good. I was laid off on Friday. Bad: I'm no longer employed. Good: I'm not working there anymore.

I woke up on Saturday morning, and felt better than I have in years. (as far as waking up and being half asleep goes)

As to the glorious, that should be obvious if you know me well enough:

God is gracious and good. He provides. He will provide. He is sovereign.

The last few weeks have been a major applicative learning experience for me. I needed God's power in order to get through each day, I did not have the strength on my own.

Our Lord is amazing!

A series of Short thoughts and observations

I loaned my DS to Turtle.
I did this so that she could work on some math skills using Brain Age.
Within 6 hours of having it, she'd started playing FFTA2, which is one of my favorite games.
Turtle's favorite game is Star Wars Legos (or at least is at the moment)
She's now playing the DS version of the game.

I have come to the conclusion that Turtle plays video games more than I do. (which I don't mind one bit. This is more of an observation of where my life is right now) I suppose the biggest part of all of this boils down to the fact that, as was acknowledged to me relatively recently with resignation in Mast's voice, I am the epitome of a casual gamer.

To my friends who are now scattered to the wind. I miss you all. You've been a major part of my life over the years and you mean a lot to me.

My sister leaves again to head back to her job and ministry in less than a month. It's been great having her here, and I'll miss her when she leaves again.

Please pray that I get a job soon. (I know you are already, but I ask you to continue to do so)
It's been a hard year and a half so far. It has also been a good year and a half in many ways. I think I've grown a lot in the process and it has been difficult in many ways. It's been hard when it looks like doors are opening and then have them close again on me. God is good and He will provide. His timing is not always the timing we would like, but He's smarter and wiser than I am. So I will submit to his will. If it was necessary for all of this to happen, for me to have what I have now, then I praise God for the hard times. If they were necessary, then I wouldn't change a thing that has happened.

If you haven't heard of it and like Fantasy, I highly recommend Auralia's Colors by Jeffrey Overstreet. I'm now on book 3 of the series. I'm not really engaging with it, but that could be because I was distracted by another book series. We'll see how I feel about it when I come back to it in about a week.
Currently I'm reading Claws that Catch by John Ringo. It's book 4, and the series is ok. It annoys me from time to time, but not very badly. Considering he's pissed me off before....

I watched the first episode/2 hours of Legend of the Seeker a few days ago. I was willing to cut it a little slack because things don't always translate properly from book to film, but there were a couple of things that really irked me. I'll have to watch a few more episodes, because there are a couple of things that may have been portrayed one way to a few of the characters, but weren't actually true. But there's at least one point that was changed that has the potential to cause a cataclysmic shift in how the story plays out. (odds are that it'll be ignored and they'll force the story into its proper course, but I still don't see how)

well, thanks again for your prayers.

Lemming out.

I have a job interview on Wednesday at 2:00 pm.

Please be in prayer for it to go well.
This will be my first interview since becoming unemployed.

There was a bit of drama involved in the application process in trying to get to this point, but it was all resolved thanks to the tireless effort of a friend.

Thanks for your prayers in advance.

This is for those of you I haven't talked to recently.

I'm still unemployed.

Current prayer request:
My resume is currently on the desks of a couple of hiring managers out in Arizona.
I would really like one of the two jobs.

So if you could be praying for that, I'd really appreciate it.

job searching/update...

So, for those of you out in internetland who are interested in keeping up and who are praying, here's my latest prayer request on the job front:

I applied for a job on Friday for an Application Developer position, and as such, am studying and reviewing programming type things, which I haven't done in a very long time. I'd forgotten how much I enjoyed this stuff. (It may also help that I'm about 8 years removed from the things that had frustrated me about programming)

So, I would really like this job. Having looked at the values and mission of the institution, I really believe in the things they stand for, and their educational ideology is very similar to things I've been coming to hold to rather strongly over the last year.

So, I guess my prayer request is this:
That they would be gracious enough to look past the "lack of experience" I have of the last 5 years, yet understand the diligence there, and also look at my education. Additionally, that I am able to get to an actual interview stage, and if so, that I will be able to communicate clearly my ability to pick things up in this area very quickly. Furthermore, that I will be able to be diligent in my study, such that by the time the interview would occur, that I will have a reasonable handle on the material which I felt I had insufficient experience of when looking at the original job posting. (Also, a couple of these things they asked about in a few follow up questions they sent me right away)
