All things considered

Just a short post.
It is hot here, humidex up to 111 degrees F;
currently it is 84 degrees with a humidex at 101 F
(29/38 C).
I am struggling with French.
Struggling.
I am writing another cover letter for a job
due Friday.
Another due in a week.
This time is really like a crucible,
as I no longer am in French classes
and am just holed up in my apartment with A/C
(thank God I have an air conditioner)
studying and job seeking.
I have been lucky each night this week to see a friend.
This time of intensity and heat will not last forever
and in ways is a treasured time;
at home with my Icons
and with the promise of God to never leave
or abandon us in our searching...
Prayers requested and offered;
including for one of my dear friends who is struggling greatly.

I can't imagine how hard it must be trying to grasp a new language so quickly. Hugs and prayers.

Thanks so much Deb and M-Juliana! I really appreciate this...

M-J - I hear you. My cat is confused as I am now living in my kitchen/living room with A/C at all times and she wonders why I don't use my super hot sauna of a bedroom...

I am thinking about you and praying for you, Elizabeth. I hope that things go well with the french and the job apps. Hopefully the heat will also break there, too!

You remind me of my sister in many ways, we are American, she married a Canadian about 2 years ago...and has had some difficulty in job searching, since she doesn't speak French! She is working now, though, full-time...living in Ottawa. They go to this church:

She also has a cat...Cleo, for short, or Cleopatra...who is so very beautiful!

Thanks Mat Emily and Marfa (I commented back to both of you via your blogs already but thought should say thanks here too!)
