Transition and Prayer

So many who I care for,

in person and in the blog world

are grieving the loss of a recently departed


suffering along side one who has cancer


other struggles.


I have candles lit right now for these.


A friend is unexpectedly in town

and I am sad that I can't spend more time with her;

this is my last week of work;

I have a huge report to finish by Thursday.

I skipped French class tonight

so that I can cook food for the week

and clean.

Tomorrow on my 'day off'

since I work three days a week for this contact

I will be editing the report I am writing


there just is not time to finish it unless I do this.

Needless to say, I am already tired.


And I don't know when or where I will have work again.


I may get more work where I was but

everything is quite uncertain;

and I live in Ottawa i.e. the nation's capital and our

Parliament was just dissolved which means a new


which could mean a new government

which means government budgets are impacted

which means...

it may be harder to get work.



I am seek to continue to put myself in God's hands.

I am already thinking of the next



That said, I am a bit overwhelmed.


But God is with us no matter what.
