A New Chapter

Good Day Friends!

First of all I want to thank you all for being so supportive last week when I told you that The Beard and I had gotten some bad news. It really meant a great deal to me to feel such support and love from my new community of friends. It is my desire to be my real self as much as possible on my blog, I don't want to portray fake emotions. I don't want to tell you everything is good and fine when its not. So today I must tell you some rather depressing news again. On Wednesday afternoon I lost my job. The family I work for can no longer afford to keep me in their employment. I'm devastated for many reasons. First of all, we rely on my income as much as The Beards. Second, I feel a great sense of responsibility and attachment for the little one I have been a nanny for. Third, as with so many other people in America today, I have had great difficulty and found great discouragement in my previous job searches; I am certainly not excited about venturing into that wasteland again now. While The Beard and I both feel great loss and overwhelmingly in the dark about what will come next for us we trust that our God is greater than our fear and uncertainty. The next few weeks will be difficult. But we are doing our best to be optimistic and most of all to listen and watch for God's will for us.

Sorry to be so depressing. I just want to be honest with you. However, with all that said, I do have some very lovely images to share with you.

  1. Janee, I'm so sorry for the bad news! That truly sucks. But I'm going to go ahead and be cliche and say that something better will come along for you :)

  2. That's rotten. Just keep keeping God at your center and he will provide :)

  3. Jessica - Thank you. It may be cliché but that doesn't make it any less true :) I'm hopeful.

    Nicole - Thank you for the encouragement!


  4. I have a feeling you're gonna be just fine. Something about you screams success. Keep your chin up girly!

  5. Rac - You're the best. Thanks for your encouragement. And speaking of success...your numbers have practically DOUBLED! Way to go babe! How is having your art in the cafe going?


  6. So far so good. Lots of positive feedback. =D

  7. Janee, I have no doubt that the little one you had looked after is really going to miss you. I hope you find the job of your dreams. I am praying that just the RIGHT job comes your way. All the best, sweet girl.
