I finally, officially, have started my (basically) dream job, thoughbeit part-time. My foot is finally in the door and I might be able to get in full-time at the department...either way, I've been waiting and praying for this for years! And it is in a great location--don't have to move across the country for it!

I'm praising God for what He has blessed me with. I easily take things for granted but recently I've been being more aware of how blessed I am. He is a wonderful God who gives us so much to be thankful for.

Thank you God for putting some of our friends in a certain plane. A family we know is in the long process of adopting 2 wonderful kids from Haiti. The mom and her mom were in Haiti visiting their kids and on their flight home the grandma happened to switch seats with someone and was sitting next to what looked like a very young girl(she was just very small and is 18 and is on a student visa to study chemistry) from Peru. Our friends happen to be fluent Spanish speakers, so the grandma was able to talk to her and when they arrived back home, they helped her arrange for her to ride a bus to her school, but as she is in a brand new place where she knows no one, she got lost and managed to contact our friends, who tracked her down, brought her home with them, and she is staying with them until some girls from her school can come and pick her up. The entire time she was missing, the mother and grandmother were worried sick about her . This girl has now gained a family that will welcome her with open arms on any school break for as long as she is in America. It was not a coincidence that the grandma switched seats, it was the working of God!

I was on a retreat this past weekend and God did some amazing things. He healed my best friends sister completely of Lymes disease. She had had it for the past five years and it is really bad. But she was completely restored. Also his older brother was healed of his chronic illness as well. We also believe that the young man I have talked about before is meant to be healed if he hasn't been already. So many good things that God has done.

I woke this morning to find out I had lost my wallet. I knew I had it last night when my dad took me to a place of business after work. I called the business, no wallet. Called dad to check if it was in his vehicle, no wallet. Having recently gone through fraud on my account, the thought of someone else finding my wallet made me uneasy. I prayed about it, walked to the other side of my bed and found the wallet in the exact place I looked not t minutes prior. Prayer still works folks.

My sister's landlord refused to renew the lease on their apartment because of the baby. So she and her husband had to move in with my parents. I'm thankful for God's provision and God's protection. The neighbourhood they were in has become a war zone with rioters. My parent's neighbourhood is still safe. They are a mixed-race couple so being in a safe place is a true blessing right now.

God recently blessed me with the funds for a new mattress and box spring and I'm so thankful for it.
