How is it possible that a little ol' introverted blogger has received so many kind emails, blog comments and phone calls from people expressing their sympathy for my job loss?
I am going to assume it is because I am a really likable guy!
Or, maybe it's because you are all so nice. But if my friends are all so nice, that must mean I am so nice!
This is what I want to believe, so that is what is true.
I don't know if it needs to be said, but I am doing okay. You have made it so. Keep the prayers coming. They have made a difference to my insides... hopefully one day they will translate into a job that'll pay the bills - and moreover, that'll help me to help others. It's not everyone who gets the opportunity to share his time, talent and treasure so as to make a difference in others' lives. That is my dream.
I suppose I should hasten to add that I have loved my years at OLSWA - as much as one can love an imperfect thing. It has been such a blessing in my own life, and hope it has been as much a blessing to others - especially our students, the ones for whom it is intended to bless. Personally, I hope this apostolate thrives!
As I have said, it is truly time for me to move on. That, I am quite sure, is God's will. I have been the better for coming here, and now leaving will be for the better.
My life has been grace after grace. If you can see it that way despite the hardships, you can pretty sure you are on the right track - at least to some extent.
So, please keep the prayers coming for me and my family!
Any one know of a good novena? Usually people suggest praying to St. Joseph for a job, but I don't just mean a job, I mean all the blessings we are going to need for this coming year and beyond.
