testimony #038

Or: hit the ground running Pt. II...

We have literally been going nonstop since we landed in the fair mother city over a week ago. And that's not a bad thing.

Agent Wife began a new job of watching two little boys for three days a week. They are the same age as our kids, so for three days it's lord of the flies around here. But that's not all bad.

This is amazing because it's the most solid, guaranteed income our household has had in over three years. And it's not all that much, but it's steady. I forgot what it's like to know that money will be there. It's culture shock.

And I recently started a temp job that works in and around my random schedule with Son & Dad Tree Service, Inc. So basically, I've been working full days this week.

And recently, we received a totally random financial gift through the mail. Thank you CEO.

I am still praying that "fruit" prayer. As in, please show us fruit for all the waiting we've endured for over three years.

And my heart and mind are still gearing up for a potential future venture involving my daily work schedule, coupled with relieving injustice whenever possible. We'll see.

Again, thank you CEO.

I so get what you mean about the shock of regular income. It took me about 4 months to realize that, yes, I was going to get paid EVERY month and it was going to be the same amount.

I didn't even realize how used to financial stress/uncertainty I had gotten used to since 2001, until God decided to provide me with my current job.

Just wait 'til you can get $5 a month ahead, B. Like, there will be $5 dollars every month (or week!) that you won't NEED for some basic living situation like food, gas, or part of a bill.

It's a pretty terrific feeling.

Just don't slip into the scarcity mindset I started to. Maybe it was PTSD from my "Job" days, but I started thinking I didn't have 'enough' and I started to delay my normally instant empathy/assistance to others in need, telling myself, 'I'll get around to it with my next check. Right now we NEED (insert whatever thing you can think of that was a 'want' instead).

It was kinda gross.

Anyway, lucky you to get my first blog response, sans coffee, no less!

Pleased beyond measure for you and yours.
