Life Changed a Little Bit

Yesterday my life changed a little bit.  As some of you know I've been looking for a job and having a really hard time.  The nation's jobs seem to be drying up fast, and California is struggling big time! I have LOVED being home for my first few months of marriage! But yesterday I started my new job.  It's  a part-time job in retail. I was talking to the other girl they hired with me and her story was similar to mine, in fact she had her Bachelor's degree too, and here we were doing the same jobs we've been doing since we were 16. (totally not complaining, just saying it's amazing that the economy can wipe out your education!)
But I'm happy to have this job and I know it's where I'm supposed to be for now.  But I came home last night a little sad that my life has changed.  A new phase has begun...and I'm always always unprepared for that. Like a switch is going to happen that I'm fully aware of, and then it comes and I'm like blindsided.  Does that happen to any of you?


  1. Hi Meg!

    Thanks for finding me! I love your blog design!!

    Praying that you will find purpose in your new job.


  2. Yeah, that happens to me too. Change is always kind of hard. ..But I pray that this transition is a smooth one for you and that your new job works out really well for you! :)

  3. Hi Meg! I know that some respects I thrive on change, and in others I cringe at the mere thought.- I think it's great that you know that God has you there for a purpose. That's key! It's hard to re-learn though how to be more disciplined with the precious time you do have at home once you go back to work. I deal with that every year when wedding season starts back up. It's a learning curve that takes some trial and error, but you'll get it! Purposing to make your husband and his needs a priority is a great place to start. I have to say that when I'm forced to be more disciplined, it does feel good in a strange way. I hope you had a wonderful day at work today :-) Praying for you through this transition...and you're right: thank God for a job at all in this economy! Sending a hug~

  4. I love your blog... I'm following.
    I hope your change and new job works out. It's great that you are trusting God. I know that many people are having a hard time right now.

  5. i totally know what you're saying and feeling! i was right there with you. after i graduated, i had a retail job for a year. i kept thinking, "this is what i went to school for?!" but then God provided an amazing job and i was all the more grateful because i had had a crummy job. so, it all worked out perfectly. may the Lord continue to show you HIs faithfulness!
