So, I don't really feel like explaining my job. If someone was really interested, I can talk about it and what I do :-) But, for some reason, I don't think that will be very interesting for you all. Anyhow though, related to work, I do want to talk about one thing.

Not long ago, in care group, I was talking about how it's not that I don't try to witness...I just don't really get in many situations that allow me to do so. Being homeschooled, having Christian neighbors, all the classes I take are with Christians, all my friends are from church(mostly), etc. Well, now I can say that I have a good opportunity! I know that the couple I work for is not Christian. Not saying this as though I'm judging their hearts, but she came right out and asked me about my church and all and she told me she doesn't like an 'organized religion' and has met too many hypocrites, so she doesn't really do the 'church thing'. Well, anyways, I'm excited because I'm really hoping I can be a light to them. Or at least I'm hoping God will find a way to use me.

I feel like it's sort of an answer to prayer(as was my job) and a great opportunity to do a 'hard thing'. I think it's awesome how God works!

That's all...I'm just excited about that =D Whether anyone else is...

Emily Joy said...

Thanks Em and Matt. And yes Matt, I do have a 'real' job now ^_^

Matt said...

Is that what the whole thing about Lester was about? haha. I never quite understood what was going on with that.
But why didn't you post when you got the job??

Emily Joy said...

Yep. Lester is the 'farm hand' that works for them.

I did post about it:

At the very end ;)

Matt said...
