Update On Prayer For Wisdom Post

September 11, 2018

Hey y'all, it's me.

Almost forgot to let you know what happened with the phone interview last night.

The Redneck pretty much nailed it. I could hear both sides of the conversation, and the supervisor doing the interview asked a lot about the Redneck's experience, how he would handle certain issues, etc. I was so proud of my beloved, he was calm, confident, answered the questions well, just made a good impression, I think. They even talked a little about New Hampshire, and living there. Then the interviewer said they needed to get the Redneck up there for an in person interview, which I guess means they might fly him up soon. The Redneck told him that he would continue walking this path until the door shut, or he walked through it, which is a pretty wise attitude. Afterward we talked about the call, going over several things.

So, we are still in limbo over the potential job, and that is what's driving me nuts the most, the not knowing part. I know I just have to walk this path with the Redneck and trust the Lord, but I will be honest, people.

I almost cried a few times this morning, because I do not want to leave Texas. I don't want to leave my house, or my church and my friends. If we do this, I will have to find homes for a few of my animals, and I will most likely have to give away my newly acquired houseplants that I have worked so hard to grow now that I have room for them. I don't want to move again after only almost three years in Bowie.

If he gets the job and goes up there, he may decide to simply keep our home here and just come back when he can, allowing me to run the household. It wouldn't be the first time we have had to live and work in two different states, so I know we can do it if we have to, but I am tired of that also.

And like I told someone in the comments yesterday, I am honestly sacred of sticking out up there, because let's face it, I am NOT very quiet, and my accent is a tad 'pronounced'. I will stick out like a sore brain.

And all this speculation is ridiculous, since he may not get the job, and I will have wasted my time letting that worry gerbil run its self to death on the exercise wheel in my brain.

I have decided to ask that you continue to keep us in your prayers over this, and I will keep you posted on developments. Other than that, I still have a family to care for, a house to run, and a blog to write. I'll get back to regular posts.

Oh, one thing I also realized, I would obviously have to change the name of this blog from Blessed In Bowie, Adventures Of A Strolling Blogger, since I wouldn't be here anymore. I thought about possible names, and I think I have one if I need it. How about...

  1. Let go..... let God..... praying for His timing, His will!

    1. I know, breathe, breathe..... The weird thing is, I actually got upset that I would lose you all if we relocate. Then my brain actually kicked in, and I realized--it don't work like that!

  2. I live in PA not so far North but couldn't image anyone caring where you come from. I lived apart from my dh for only 9 months and hated it. Cheryl

    1. We have had to do the separate states a few times, not wild about it, but throughout history, couples have survived being separated for a time.
