i also got some news this morning that threw me for a little loop. our pastors have determined that the church cannot support opening of a new kindergarten in the fall as they had formerly believed they could. the church has been hit pretty hard lately, and i can completely see the wisdom of the decision, however as a mom of a potential kindergartner, i am really disappointed.
i understand and truly respect that this was a very tough decision, and one that was made prayerfully and carefully. it does, however, directly effect my family. we had hoped to have the bb and big brother at the same school with me in the fall, but due to this turn of events, big bro will now attend a local christian school. one at which his momma hopes to teach for in the fall to help pay for his tuition. i have an interview soon, and am actually excited to see how the Lord will work this to the best of my family, as i know He fully wishes to. :)
the large impact of this will be felt in many areas, however. as i must search for employment that will provide financially to allow for my big guy's tuition, i will have to leave my employment at the church....which after 5+ years will be hard. also, dh and i have already discussed the possible need to move to a home that is closer to the school (should i get the job) and to hubby's work (which is actually right behind the school) to compensate for the distance and ever-increasing gas prices. then again, big guy may get tuition help and make it unnecessary for me to switch jobs....we just don't know.....
however, i am not worried or stressed because once i got past my initial emotional response - yes, i gave myself a good 10 minutes to cry - i prayed. it was then that i was reminded once again that while i may make my own plans, and scheme my own schemes, our steps are ordered of the Lord. why doesn't this make me anxious? because i know that all things will work to the best of my family, my heavenly father wouldn't have it any other way!
ok, now to go basted together bb's pastel monkey quilt and get it checked off my to-do list!
goal: to get as many wip's completed by this weekend as possible in order to allow me to begin dismantling - sigh- my quilting room for painting - yippee- to prep for little matthew.
