Somewhere He Opens a Window.

Well I am sad to say I just lost my job. Luckily it wasn't a good job in the first place. And as I've said in several places now, You're never unemployed when you're doing God's work. So this door may be closed, but there's plenty of open windows with pretty views.

I'm going to take this opportunity to work on my music. Get out my guitar and just write! And from there, I'll relax during these busy fall months. Do some of the projects I've been wanting to do. And finally I'll prepare for my big trip at the end of October.

I will keep looking for work though, And as I said, there are plenty of opportunities. If not I'll find a sidewalk somewhere and sit down with my guitar and open the case!

In any event, I have ordered my pattern from S&S and it is on it's way. I'm so excited! And now I have time to go looking for material. Material that's like I want, and not Wal-mart Brand.

So anyways, keep me in your prayers in this tough time. And even though it may be tough I'll come through. If God brings you to it, he'll bring you through it. And I'm confident he has a plan and a much better place for me.

I am sorry you lost your job. :-( But I am encouraged to read of your desire to submit to God's will for your life and serve Him as best as you can now. I'll be praying for you!!

P.S. What S&S pattern did you buy?

Thanks Mel I really appreciate it.

And I bought the 1914 afternoon dress. We're going to shorten the skirt and the sleeves to a more modern length. :D

sorry to hear that you lost your job ... but you are right about the window :) the image you put up really reinforces that belief :)) i also like the idea of getting the guitar out and opening the case. when i was at uni, my faculty was very close to the music college... so each day there will be students from there just doing that ... they open their cases and play. sometimes there would even be a string quartet! apart from being a real good way of earning some pocket money ;) you also get to learn how to perform in front of a live audience and these are really just like 2 steps away from you :) and that's awesome practice :) good luck!

Oh, that's too bad about losing your job. Your heart and mind are in the right place about it, though.
