It’s been several weeks since my last post and I wanted to do a follow-up post because this has a part 2 that deserves to be told. After I did the last post I was at my extern site and the office manager called and told me she knew of an opening; would I like to interview for the position. Of course, I said yes. This happened on a Monday, I interviewed with 2 of the Drs. and that office manager and was asked to come and shadow at their office on Thursday and by Friday was offered the position and by Monday was told they wanted me to complete my externship at their office, and could I start the next day. So for the past few weeks I’ve been at a Pediatric Practice with three wonderful lady doctors. I was so blessed to placed in a Health network with very good perks. I still will not be done with my last class until September 26th but God showed up and showed out in placing me in the right place at the right time. I have been so fortunate in my journey to this point in my life and for the past few days have seen the residue of fears fall at my feet. In saying that I do know that the advisary is on the prowl but I have no fear as I am living the 23 Psalms. THANK YOU Lord for all you’ve done for me and my house.
I would like to move on to some knitting. I was able to do a bit of knitting while becoming adjusted to my new schedule. There has been some hats completed and washcloths completed all to benefit Knitters for Obama. It’s a charity that donates much needed items to homeless shelters throughout the US that focus on displaced veterans. I will share photos in my next post and I will also share my ideas for some new sewing projects.
It’s been a long time since I’ve said anything here on my blog. First school, extern ship, a job interview, Ravelympics, planning and life have all been in the forefront of my not getting to sit down and blog.
First, I want to take some time to share something personal with you. I’ve been in school for the past two years and although I had some finances put away I haven’t really worked for more than 6 months during this time. Why am I telling you this? Well, God has been the ultimate supplier of everything I needed wanted and desired during this time and I just wanted to share that with you. It comes a time in our life when we have to lean and depend on our faith. I have spent the past two years doing just that and now as I look back and see all that He has done for me I want to shout from the roof top that all it takes is a little faith, keeping your focus, letting God direct your path and believe me when I say the favor of God will open many doors. My walk isn’t done but I walk in His footsteps and it makes each step more prosperous, more peaceful, more joyful and very blessed.
Now onto my projects I had signed up for the Ravelympics on Ravelry but because I’ve been so busy I didn’t get back on in time to link to my projects and teams so I’m not officially being counted but since my projects are for charity I’m still making them. I signed up with Team Obama knitting and crocheting for Homeless Veterans. My event was the Hat Dash and so far I’ve made 1 hat and cast on the second my goal for this style hat is 10 by Aug. 24th. I hope I’ll make it. It will by far by the fasted knitting I’ve ever done.
Here’s the 3 washcloths made for the same charity. I have a goal of at least 15 of these. We’ll see how it goes. I think I can make it since the Olympics don’t end until Aug. 24th.
