February 22, 2016

This morning I got up, pretty much at the regular time, only this time I didn't have to worry about jumping on a conference call, right away. I am no longer working, as my relationship with LongView, the company I've been working for, for the past several months, has come to an end. It was one of those things where I was hired to do a specific job for the VA, and initially I was doing that job (for about 5 months), and then the VA decided that their priorities changed, and so the team was to start working on financials and work intake. I suddenly felt like a fish out of water, and on top of that they really didn't know what they wanted, just that it needed to be fixed. I had a number of conversations with the boss, and so we agreed that at the end of 2015 we would simply terminate our relationship. I didn't feel like I was honestly contributing and I really felt uncomfortable in a constant state of catch-up. Well, I know today isn't the end of 2015, and that is because due to how things were going the date kept getting pushed out, and even today, a Monday, ended up being tacked on because the HR guy was out on this past Friday. It feels good to be done with that short chapter of my career, and now Linda and I have to decide how we move forward from here. Financially, I think we're going to be okay, and with this new house and property I'm pretty sure I'm going to be kept busy, so it should be a good transition. I'll keep you posted if anything else should change.

Today, Jason went out shooting. I would have liked to have gone with him, but I did have to deal with the exit interview, at the same time he was going. He hasn't been out shooting in several weeks, and it was good for him to get a chance to be out. Probably good for him to simply get out, on his own, too. He even left the dogs here with me. That was okay because I had plenty of things to do around here, and I foresee several days (weeks?) of things to do around here, as we approach next month's activities. On March 12, we will be celebrating Jason's 5-year anniversary of the injuries, and what we're calling 5-Alive. We've invited a bunch of people to come, and we've probably forgotten a few, so if you're reading this, and you're going to be in the area, feel free to drop by and join in on the fun and celebrating. We are living at 4399 Ramona Dr, in Fallbrook and the party begins at 11:00.

Otherwise, we're all doing well and the girls are growing fast. Both of them seem to be full of energy and very happy, so I guess we've been doing something right. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.

  1. Sounds like you made a wise choice.
    Praying!
    Psalms 40:16-17 Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: let such as love thy salvation say continually, The LORD be magnified. But I am poor and needy; yet the Lord thinketh upon me: thou art my help and my deliverer; make no tarrying, O my God.

  2. Such wonderful words of comfort! Continuing to pray!
    Lamentations 3:21-26 This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope. It is of the LORD'S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. The LORD is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him. The LORD is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him. It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD.

  4. Praying to the only One who can hear and help!
    Psalms 5:1-3 Give ear to my words, O LORD, consider my meditation. Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God: for unto thee will I pray. My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up.

  5. Trust only in Him! Praying right now!
    Psalms 5:11-12 But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee. For thou, LORD, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield.

  6. Praying to our only Rock and Fortress!
    Psalms 31:1-3 In thee, O LORD, do I put my trust; let me never be ashamed: deliver me in thy righteousness. Bow down thine ear to me; deliver me speedily: be thou my strong rock, for an house of defence to save me. For thou art my rock and my fortress; therefore for thy name's sake lead me, and guide me.

  7. You are in the Lord's Hands! He knows everything you're going through! Know that I'm praying!
    Psalms 31:5, 7-8 Into thine hand I commit my spirit: thou hast redeemed me, O LORD God of truth (7-8) I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy: for thou hast considered my trouble; thou hast known my soul in adversities; And hast not shut me up into the hand of the enemy: thou hast set my feet in a large room.

  9. Always put your hope in the Lord! Lifting up prayer!
    Psalms 31:14-16, 24 But I trusted in thee, O LORD: I said, Thou art my God. My times are in thy hand: deliver me from the hand of mine enemies, and from them that persecute me. Make thy face to shine upon thy servant: save me for thy mercies' sake. (24) Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the LORD.

  10. Lifting up prayers to the Only One who can hear and answer according to His Will!
    Psalms 34:4, 6-7 I sought the LORD, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears. (6-7) This poor man cried, and the LORD heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles. The angel of the LORD encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them.

  11. The Lord hears when you cry. The Lord is near! Praying!
    Psalms 34:15, 17-19 The eyes of the LORD are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their cry...The righteous cry, and the LORD heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles. The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all.

  12. What comfort these verses give! Know that I'm here praying!
    Psalms 46:1-5 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah. There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High. God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God shall help her, and that right early.
