Dear Friend and Family,

I am sad to say that I just got a call and the interview I was to have next week for the Ottawa job has been cancelled. The had two positions and now decided to only have one and so I am not having an interview after all. Of course I am really disappointed. I was so hoping maybe this one would be 'the one' after two years of not having full time work.

Please pray for me that I will know what to do next, as I will have to start trying to figure out what job wise what I can do. I have been looking for a professional library job for a good number of months and it just does not seem to be working out. I know I am a professional and have great work experience. Now I have to figure out what I can do from here. I hope to have some kind of work soon as I do not want to run out of money again (am okay at present thank God). And:

Thank God that Christ is Risen.

In Christ,

Elizabeth

Sorry to hear that. I've been unemployed and under employed for a couple years now due to our economy. I was cleaning gutters for a client recently and told my kids, "Pride comes before a fall and lack of pride comes before a meal." I haven't worked in my "profession" for over 30 years now, but I have a roof over my head and food on my family's table. Glory to God! May your job search be blessed.

Thank you s-p. By the grace of God I have been able to continue to live in my apartment and have good food to eat. And my school loans still can be deferred. Thank you for your words and best wishes. I know how hard it is... we are all together in this...

Oh Elizabeth...I am so sorry. When I read your blog a bit ago about how long you've been out of work, I admit that I was shocked. I hadn't realized that it has been two years. I've not been in your position before so I will not presume to tell you "I know how you feel" as I do not. I do know though that the pit of my stomach felt the shock of your words...I am very sorry. Its okay to be sad and no doubt you know this, its better not to stay there. You are a very talented lady and will find a position that you will excel in. (Speaking of Excel, kudos for learning that wretched program!) I can pray, that much I can do. As best you can just now, enjoy the quiet of these days; they will not last.

Thanks so much T-A... Yeah, today I am feeling sad; tonight; but tomorrow I must sweep the sadness away; must clean house, eat more salad and soup; light candles. But I admit my heart feels heavy. It feels like such a long road... and I am tired. But Christ, He is still Risen...

Elizabeth, I'm so sorry to hear that. I'll keep praying for you to find something. Like Teresa, I've not been in your situation before, so I can't offer any other comfort than that I'm praying for you, but I'm certain that you'll find something. Keep clinging to the Resurrection!

Oh Elizabeth, I'm so sorry. Just remember that Christ even takes care of the little sparrow, so how much more will He take care of us. He is risen and in the end, that will be all that matters. Prayers for you, dear.

I can't offer much, but you have my continued prayers.

(Pet Cleo for me. (: )

Thank you Kiernan and Sarah E and Mat Anna.

ALL of your words, comfort and prayers are very meaningful to me. Thank you.

Mat. Anna, Cleo will be petted some more. She was concerned for me earlier and so I gave her a good reassuring cuddle... :)

DebD said...

so sorry to hear this. I can't imagine how disappointed you are. I wish there was more I could...but I will offer prayers.

Elizabeth, I am just now reading this for the first time. I am, also, saddened by your news. We continue to pray for you and are hopeful that a new job will come your way soon. You are very much loved and prayed for!
