Did the annual leaf raking and blowing yesterday. The fenced in backyard acts as a giant leaf catcher. All of my neighbors' yard are windswept clean - mine is full of leaves. Or was. I blow them all to the back fence and then "shovel" them over into the woods. Not hard work but time consuming. And it gets dark so early now...
It was nice to have Ashleigh home for Thanksgiving. We had a couple of families over and had a nice, laid back day. Pretty thankful for all that we have.
The outside time doing mindless work lets me pray and think a lot. I am not writing much about my job search and the circumstances about my unemployment but I can say Lucie and I are VERY encouraged about the "coincidences" that remind us that God is in control and it is all part of the Plan. Sermons at church about hope and peace, things people say, verses-of-the-day, and other little "random" reminders keep us positive. A couple of things that have seemed to be a recurring theme - that God sees our lives from the end and knows how things will turn out and how He is able to create something from nothing. So we are doing our part in terms of job searching, networking, cutting expenses, etc. and waiting for God to pull us through. Looking forward to telling the happy ending to this story...
