One Door Shut, Another Opens

Well, here goes.....
(no tears tammy!)

Almost 3 months ago Steve applied for a position with Park County, Colorado. My home state. We have been waiting on pins & needles! We've searched for churches, homeschool groups, dance lessons, tae kwon do lessons, library locations, etc. We've scoured every possible real estate option and had narrowed it down to the land I highlighted in this post. We referred to it as "ours". I have pictures of it hanging on the fridge for crying out loud!

I'm going to miss it....

Steve did not get the job in Park County. Period. I'm a little angry, I have to admit. I know his qualifications. I know what he knows, and how talented an equipment mechanic he is! He never even got a phone call! The human resource staff has repeatedly apologized that the department heads hiring for that job never even contacted us. Something seems fishy about the whole thing. I wonder if someone's brother/son/cousin didn't just find themselves in a new job.....

Not long ago, Steve said to me, "I can't help but wonder if God doesn't have something else waiting for us."

Well, guess what. He may have just that!

Late last week I received an email from the National Park System. Yes. National. Park. System. It was sent to alert us to a job opening that Steve is qualified for, and by the end of the week, WILL be applying for.

Family and friends, this is just a small glimpse as to what could be Steve's work environment, should his application be accepted for Heavy Mobile Equipment Mechanic.

This is Blue Mesa Reservoir, Colorado's largest body of water. It's found in the Curecanti National Recreation area of Gunnison Colorado. Should Steve get the job, his shop would be right on the shores of this lake.



And this is only minutes away:



I have goose bumps just thinking about it!

Also?!?

One word.

Kayaking!

Stay tuned......

I'll be praying for His will in all of this. Isn't it hard to wait on the Lord?!?

Sorry about the first job, but what a great opportunity awaits! It's amazing to see what God does when you wait on Him! Keep us posted!

I'm always thankful in times like yours that God is in control and I am not. Who knows (besides Him) what wonderful things are planned for your family?

And we're glad to have you around here in the meantime! (Wouldn't want you to miss anything wonderful here, either!)

God was having a very GOOD DAY when he created all that we know, one of which was later discovered and named Colorado.

Love Wisconsin..............but Colorado has it all. We would probably fit in a very small moving crate, just mark it "Colorado or Bust" just like Gram & Pop in 1957!!!

Love & Positive Thoughts,
