Wonderful news!

We received some wonderful news late this afternoon. I'm doing the happy dance and thanking God for answering our prayers.

Those of you who've been reading my blog for awhile might remember me posting about my son and his job troubles (March 5th post). He's been unemployed for over a year because he took a buyout with the software company he worked for instead of a mandatory transfer across the continent to Florida. This afternoon he called to tell us that he has a job and starts work on Monday. It is a software development job - not the police officer to be position that he wanted - but at least a good paying job with benefits. He is ranked number 26 with the Vancouver, WA Police Department so that still might happen for him in the future. In the meantime we can stop worrying about him and his wife.

So that's my biggest gratitude for today - a job for Jeremy.

Wonderful news Patti, God does indeed hear our prayers, just its on His time table !
My dad and grandfather were police officers. Noble profession, but packed with stress these days.
