Thankful Day 15

Today I'm thankful for my job.

I'm, first, thankful to even have a job.

I'm thankful that my job allows me to be a wife first. When I was on the job search after college, it was very important to me to find a job that I didn't have to worry about when I'm at home. I wanted Dustie to have my full attention at home instead of me continuing to work/worry about things for the next day. I wanted our home to be a sort of sanctuary for me & D to wind down from the day & be rejuvenated to go back into the world the next day.

I'm thankful to have a job that allows me to be a Mommy first. When I had Jax, it was very important to me that "strangers" didn't raise my children. I love that I can bring my boys when I need to, & when they're not with me, they're not far & with family.

I'm thankful for a job that allows me to do ministry first. Being in the ministry is as much about my calling as it is Dustie's. (More about my calling in a future blog post.) I wanted a job that allowed me to fulfill my ministry duties & desires.

I'm thankful that, in my job, I'm working with & for my family. I get to see the fruit of my labor first hand.

Thank You God for Your provision!
