Another interview over.
Not sure how it went but I had lots to say.
Would be a good job...
I am still weary.
At least two more job interviews to come;
somehow this seems overwhelming.
Since this has not changed as of late

Still weary but at least yesterday I was able to make
and buy food for the week and I have medicine to try to
counteract the insomnia from the other
please pray for me,
for help, wisdom, strength and the mercy of God.

Today is the celebration of All Saints.
A beautiful day to celebrate also the living
among us who have been a revelation of God to us.
My Father is one of these people in my life.
I grew up in a secure Christian home,
one of the biggest gifts I was ever given was a good family.
I loved God from an early age and had a very deep
sense of God as Father.
And I knew what Father meant.
Someone you could go to,
Someone who could somehow fix everything
and make things better.
Wise and waiting for you to ask for his wisdom.
Meeting you on your level,
never diminishing and taking one's questions
seriously and talking intelligently to me
even when I was young,
not assuming that I was not up to the level
of conversation that my questions were at.
My Dad worked and still works hard;
he put us all through Christian Education
K-12 even when there was not much money to be had.
He gave sacrificially.
And he never mentions it to us or asks for what he
gave to us in return.

The beautiful dog and cat bowl set up for
those walking in the summer time.
Tres Cool, no?!
City Black Squirrel.
Good to see around.
I am tired now.
Another job application to finish today
and I had so hoped to bake another
Strawberry lemon cake for church today.
My mind is full and bursting.
Thank God I am going to a baptism of one of my
friend's babies tomorrow at the
Speaking of going to the monastery,
feel free to send me an email (roosjeblog @ yahoo .ca )
or a comment if you want names prayed for there;
I will make a list...
I like this little Catholic church
dedicated to St. Theresa, the little flower.
It is always nice to walk by.
Inspecting the newly cleaned bathtub for instance.
And she wonders why it is always being cleaned,
She watched me iron my clothes for today's interview
but did not offer to help.
Consider the amount of delinting/furring I do
for such clothes,
it is probably good that she does not wish to take over
the ironing duties,
such as they are.

When it rains it pours - just got a call for a
**possible** one month contract
via a job agency I met with a few years back.
Now I have 4 potential leads, plus a small contract that I have still not heard back from...
I have to continue preparing for interview tomorrow,
finish a cover letter and do a new resume for this new possible contract!
(i.e. two resumes and a cover letter to finish today plus
more interview prep)
Prayers most sincerely requested!
Also could you pray for my stamina?
I am pretty certain that it may be a 30-40 minute bus time to
the interview tomorrow and this itself is tiring.
And that I will have focus on the interview at hand,
with so much else going on.

Today I added more noodles to the leftovers...
Cooked and diced chicken breast
salt and pepper
Anglican church sign.
Been thinking about Abundance and God.
How does it relate?
Obviously everything we have is from God;
but how are we to think about abundance?
What about our responsibility to others who have less?
Not easy questions.
And I think too easy to fall without realizing it in to a
health and wellness Gospel
which is not Christianity.
Christianity, one of my good friend said years ago,
is summarized in the Beatitudes.

I've been reading a book on St. John of Kronstadt;
in it talks about the theme of joy
and that it is the devil who spreads gloom.
I paraphrase but this theme I am finding
in many Orthodox places.
Living in the joy of Christ, of Pascha.
We are always being called away from and out of
despair, acedia, despondancy
in to Christ;
Christ the Living Water of Pentecost.
Lots of thoughts about being at peace by
accepting all things in the day as God's will;
whether in what God allows or in what He directly wills;
it is a mystery but somehow acceptance of the days events
can give peace
when kept with the rememberance of God
and who He is,
His goodness, His desire to save us.
