Got a job!!

After 4 1/2 months of searching and dozens (and dozens) of job applications, we are thrilled to tell you that Mr K has a job!  

It happened quite suddenly.  Within only a week, he applied, had 3 interviews and got a job offer.  We don't personally believe in "chance" ... we believe that God directs our lives by giving us opportunities (doors) that open and close.  And this door opened for us!  The job is a great fit for his abilities and we hope that this commission-based job will offer some great future benefits.  

The most exciting (and daunting) part of it is that we will be moving.  This weekend.  Yes ... we have a week to get packed and ready to move.  Actually, we still own a house -- that little "fixer upper" we bought but haven't finished fixing up.  We will close it up and leave it behind for now while planning to come back at a later time and finish it enough to sell.  Our move will take us to live near family in Denver, CO, which this Grammy is very excited for!  In the first weeks, we will stay with family while we hunt for an apartment.

We have many details to handle and much to be done before Mr K starts working March 19.  Because we don't really know what our apartment will be like, we're only taking the bare necessities for now -- but what are the necessities?  I'm not sure what would have been easier -- packing the basics or packing the whole house!  The idea of "necessities" has been hard to define with many decisions being made in the packing process.  Sleep is optional.  ;)

We are grateful for those who have prayed for and supported and encouraged us these last few months.  It's been awesome to see God work!  Thank you if you have prayed!
