About a month and a half ago, Chris came home from work looking pretty down. I figured he'd just had a bad day, but turns out it was worse than that. "I was laid off," he said after hugging and kissing me. There was a lot of prayer, comforting (the lay-off wasn't his fault--the company just wasn't selling enough planes), tears (on my part) and discussion in our house that night. Do we stay in Y-town? (That job was why we'd come here.) What do we do about the fact that we're having a baby soon? Can we afford to stay in our house?
As the title of this post says, His faithfulness is indeed amazing. Within one week of being laid off, Chris got a temporary job (via, of all things, a post a former coworker saw on Facebook). And once his new boss learned I was pregnant, he changed his temp status to permanent so we could get benefits. Even though this wasn't a permanent solution (which Chris' new boss knew going into it), it would tide us over until we figured out what to do next.
Enter T-town, California. Yep, the land of swimmin' pools and movie stars. Also, the new home of us. Chris applied for his dream job, figuring he wouldn't get it, but hey, it's worth a shot right? Then he had a phone interview...then they contacted his references...and flew him down there for an interview. The same day they offered him a job. That's just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to how God has shown that this is the right decision. I'm not kidding...the miracles are never ending.
Chris will be working for a super cool company (if you want to know details and I know you're not a stalker, feel free to ask!) while I will be enjoying my dream job of stay at home mom (one of those aforementioned miracles!)
So we are facing changes yet again, but we're excited for where God is leading the three of us. :)
